mama love on tuesday, may 7!

happy spring, friends! we are excited for warm, breezy days and to celebrate mamas everywhere on may 12! there are so many moms we want to acknowledge -- our own, of course, but also stepmoms, grandmothers, daughters, sisters, mothers-in-law, and friends. we know many of you are in the same boat and want to celebrate the many mothers in your lives. so we're having a little shopping fete to help you on your way to treating all those moms this mother's day. details below:

tuesday, may 7
5:30 - 7:30
(still time to pop those gifties in the mail!)
the juicy bits: we will be putting out a carefully chosen selection of 2-4-1 goods 
that we think would make perfect gifts AND
all regular-priced merch will be 15% off. 
we will also have a bit of jewelry on sale at the counter, so don't forget to look there!

shower your mama(s) with the love!
nitty gritty:
-- please note that we will close at 4:00 on tuesday to put out all the goods 
and get the store ready for you! we will reopen at 5:30 on the dot.
-- all-2-4-1 goods are final sale, no exchanges.

"best of " shindig

so last night was the annual cville "best of" party which, this year, was held at the former charlottesville ice park. i'm pleased to report that even though i could not be there to grab our winnings, some of my favorite peeps were, including aaron and jessica!

what a dare devil and with arm burns to prove it.

'tis the season to be jolly and so...

....o'suz is having a holiday bash to kick off the season in style-with spirits and sweet deals.
date: november 19th (next thursday) 
time: 4-8 pm
details are as follows:
we will have spirits to share and it will be the big reveal of the 2 for 1 for this year.
as well, we will be offering 15% off regular merch storewide during those hours, (no exceptions here). the party is casual but private. it's not the party you bring everyone you know and their kids to. not because we don't want a big turn out, but because if rsvp's mean anything at all, we will have a full house. in other words, with this get together, we are hoping to thank our blog readers and our mailing listers,  so if you are reading this, that's you! 

come and see all the xmas goodies we are putting out as i write, including amazing ornaments, cards and stockings as well as the 2 for 1 which is seriously juicy people, just ask aaron: she has been tending to it for months now as we work our way towards the season of giving. we did it last year, much later and it was a huge success, but with much less hooplah. this time we want to make it a treat. so between the xmas cheer and goodies and the 2 for 1, there will be much to see and buy!!! get it while the gettin's good. 

please rsvp to:

save the date!!!!!!!

so you might remember we had a big 2 for 1 thing going last year at o'suz during the month of december. well this year, we plan to expand on that idea and begin the madness in november. ideally, our plan is to invite you, our loyal readers, and those of you who have so kindly given us your email address, to a preview party on november 19th. we will have the 2 for 1 out for you to peruse and purchase first. we will also have out all xmas merch by then as well as some libations. we are thinking 4-8. mark you calendars and stay tuned....
