Happy Birthday America!
June 26, 2017

Liberty is the breath of life to nations.  – George Bernard Shaw

Happy Birthday, America!

A mere 241 years ago, the greatest nation on Earth came into existence.  And, since 1776, Americans have embraced a time-honored tradition of celebrating this country’s summer birthday in the most, ahem, dramatic fashion.  And speaking of fashion…you can’t show up to your neighborhood BBQ or Stars and Stripes event without a little patriotic pizzazz.  Be sure to shop the above looks at E.Leigh’s Summer Celebration Sale now through July 4th for life, liberty and the pursuit of cuteness!

Now cue the fireworks and light the grills – it’s time to celebrate ‘Merica, y’all!



Let Freedom Bling








Add a little patriotic flair to any outfit with some fun bling from Charming Charlie at Southlake Town Square. Pops of red, white and blue add a little oomph to your ensemble.  From flag and star purses to red, white and blue beads and more, Charming Charlie has that perfect little something to make you stand out.



Be a Star


We love stripes. (Who doesn’t love stripes?) But ‘tis the season to add in some stars, too!  This Riley Ruffle Top in Navy Star from Lauren James is a showstopper. This seersucker print, off-the shoulder top features a ruffle at the neckline, a split back to keep you cool and a white bow for a little extra POP.  How cute would this look for your July 4th festivities?



America to a T








Wear your patriotism on your sleeve with this limited-edition T-shirt from Tyler’s at Southlake Town Square.  It’s patriotic, easy to wear, and the perfect addition to your Tyler’s collection.



It’s Party Time

When you throw a party to celebrate the US of A, think red, white and blue from Pottery Barn to liven up a 4th of July get-together. Find your star-themed runners, napkins and centerpieces to create a patriotic table, and consider something fun like this drink chiller in the shape of a boat helm.  And, for some (safe) fireworks for your fiesta, check out these Standing Starburst centerpieces.  They may look like bombs bursting in air, but trust us – they’re LED and battery-operated (much easier on your party than actual pyrotechnics, and way easier to store for next year).



Sweet Smell of Freedom

The freedom to be uniquely you is one of the best things about this ol’ country of ours.  Yankee Candle is also giving us the freedom to customize one of its fabulous candles!  A perfect hostess gift for the 4th of July BBQ you’re set to attend, this candle can be personalized with your own photo (perhaps your favorite Independence Day memory?) and message.


Stars & Stripes at Southlake Town Square

Join us the evening of Monday, July 3, for a 4th of July celebration!  Stars & Stripes at Southlake Town Square is a fun, free, family-friendly event you won’t want to miss. Live entertainment, food, games and crafts for kids, and more begin at 6 p.m., and a beautiful fireworks show will light the night sky at 9:30 p.m.  Bring the whole family to celebrate this great country of ours.

Happy Independence Day, America!
