We have so much to be thankful for here at Rodéo. On Tuesday night we went to Table Kitchen and Bar to celebrate Thanksgiving with a few of our girls. Of course we couldn't just do a plain ol' dinner...we had to have masks! It made for an especially entertaining night. As always there were lots of laughs and memories about the store shared. We are so thankful that the store has brought us all together- we are more than just co-workers, we are friends!
We had a revelation that came into sharp focus...we have the most adorable and kind-hearted shop girls around!
We hope your day is filled with good friends, good food and good times. Take today to count your blessings as we are here at Rodéo. We are thankful for our loyal and lovely customers! You guys make everything we do worth it. Come see us tomorrow on Black Friday to see how thankful we are for YOU!
What's the best way to celebrate the fact that you're half way through the week? We think it's makeovers, shopping, and eating sweets! That's why on Wednesday, October 28th, we brought in our favorite ladies from Saks-New Orleans to put on our annual Chanel make-up event. Customers booked appointments to have their makeup done and ordered their favorite products when they were finished. But honestly, what Chanel make-up products aren't our favorite?! Ladies left with fresh faces and hopefully a few new fall sweaters.
We promise these cupcakes tasted as good as they looked. One or two (or three) cheat sweets never hurt anyone! And a mimosa to wash it all down...cheers!
One of our favorite customers called her boyfriend from the make-up chair saying, "Honey, where are you taking me tonight? I look good for a Wednesday!"
If you want to participate in the Chanel make-up event next year, leave a comment or call us at the store (225-763-5889.) We'd love to see you! Thanks again to the Chanel team from Saks-New Orleans for helping us feel as gorgeous as we all are and sharing a few laughs.

On the week of Halloween, we decided to host a pumpkin painting party with one of our favorite local artists, Brandee Sandusky. Brandee is an abstract painter here in South Louisiana. (She's got big talent and an even bigger heart!) On Monday night, she brought her paints and paint brushes to our store to teach our customers how to take pumpkin decorating up a notch. We are always on the look out for new ways to make things pretty! We had such a great time learning from her and enjoyed getting to create beautiful pumpkins to adorn our front steps in the process.
And as always, Anna Grace stole the show! :) But how could she not, with the cutest Halloween dress and the prettiest pumpkin to match. Watch out Brandee, you may have some competition in the future. Ha!
A big thank you to everyone who came out the the event, to Brandee for teaching us your ways, and to the ladies of Julep Studio for photographing the event!
