Summer Classics Louisville Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary with Patio Party

Summer Classics Louisville opened its doors for the first time in the Westport Village Shopping Center 10 years ago this June, a milestone certainly deserving of a celebration. To recognize its first decade of business, Summer Classics is inviting the community to a Patio Party from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 16.

Offering both indoor (Gabby) and outdoor (Summer Classics) furnishings, lighting and accessories, the shop has become one of the premier retail locations for home décor. Owner Allison Carothers and her team of talented designers have helped furnish homes and businesses in the Louisville area and beyond.

“It feels like we (just) opened our doors yesterday, yet here we are ten years later,” said Carothers. “We are honored to have the opportunity to partner with our clients to design and furnish their homes and businesses. Our goal will always be to create beautiful spaces where memories can be made with family and friends. The Summer Classics and Gabby product lines are as durable as they are beautiful and we are excited for the future.”

The event will be held at Summer Classics, 1321 Herr Lane #160, in Westport Village and include promotions, hors d’oeuvres, refreshments and opportunities to win special prizes.


Shop for a Cause at Sassy Fox Raises Money for the SAA

On May 24, Sassy Fox Upscale Consignment on Chenoweth Lane hosted a Shop for a Cause day to raise money for the Spondylitis Association of America. The SAA helps to raise awareness and fund research for Ankylosing Spondylitis and other forms of Spondyloarthritis. Spondyloarthritis (pronounced spon-dyl-oh-arthritis) is the name given to a group of closely related rheumatic diseases that primarily affect the spine (spondylo) and other joints.

The SAA receives no government funding and relies on the generous donations of individuals to create and maintain the programs and services aimed at improving the futures of the 2.7 million Americans affected by spondylitis.

Sassy Fox owner Jessica Moreland was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis in June of last year. The SAA was a great source of information and support for her.

The store had a wonderful turnout of customers, consignors and friends who came out to donate and support the fundraiser. In total, Moreland and her team were able to raise $1,000 for the SAA.
