Finally, we are of that age — our mothers turn to us as taste barometers instead of the other way around. And to make sure you hit it out of the park, GUYandGIRL Boutique at the Shelborne South Beach is hosting a pre-Mother’s Day Shopping & Beauty event, complete with mini-makeovers by CUTLER South Beach. For cutting edge shopping, the hotel-based boutique also features a trunk show of jewelry designer Emily Penn’s elegant designs, displayed luxuriously next to Shelborne’s beautiful whitewashed pool. In the spirit of the holiday, moms and daughters are invited for jewelry, styling tips, and, (yes!) Prosecco.
While a tourist may have restrictions on how much they could take home (ugh! that 50-pound limit gets us every time!), but you live here, so while you're browsing for mama, stock up on Voluspa Candles, jewelry by local line Lola James Jewelry, To Dye For sarongs that are seriously to die for. Trick Mom into telling you what she likes and sneakily pick up a last minute gift while she hits up the Prosecco bar (again). Most of all, kick back and relax with your mama, which is what she wants most for Mother's Day, anyway.
Where: GUYandGIRL poolside boutique at Shelborne South Beach, 1801 Collins Avenue (at 18th Street), 305-531-1271.
When: Saturday, May 12, 1 to 5 p.m.
