“Shopping locally has a way of turning an ordinary task into a social experience! Personal connections are made when we support each other and the important roles we each play in our community. It’s important to shop locally and support businesses that are investing in our community and have a personal stake in our economy. Businesses supporting each other, and consumers shopping locally, helps to promote a healthy, thriving place to live.”
- Janet Pepper Ray and Marilyn Pepper Brunt, owners of Bonjour Gifts and Décor
The end of school isn’t the only thing we celebrate in May.
In addition to graduations, the calendar is filled with dance recitals, communions, confirmations and other events that call for fabulous fashions and special gifts.
Thankfully, shops around Acadiana have us covered when it comes to finding the perfect outfit or present.
In the spirit of celebrating our amazing community, we bring to you “Carte Blanche,” an opportunity to peek inside the windows of spectacular local businesses. Each week, this space will feature a mix of retailers and the products that make them special.
This month is undoubtedly busy, and the memories we make will last forever.
So let’s mark the moments with outfits and items that are unique to our Lafayette-area retailers.
