Boutique Boxes

Happy Friday, beauties! We’re so excited to share some fun details with you this week about our Boutique Boxes. If you’re not familiar with the process, you can find details here.

Boutique boxes are some of our stylists’ absolute favorite. It’s a way for us to connect with you and provide an easy yet fun and super personalized shopping experience. We know life can get busy and making it into your favorite shop isn’t as easy as you’d like it to be. We got together with one of our main stylists, Kellea and wanted to share what she loves most about boutique boxes.

“I love that we get to connect with customers in a completely new way. Using the style quiz the customer submits, it’s really fun to go find items that accurately fit their style AND find at least one item that might be out of their comfort zone. It’s awesome that they trust us enough to let us style them by using our best judgment. It’s SO helpful when a customer attaches a link to their Pinterest page or an Instagrammer they like. It gives us a guide to let us know if we are on the right track. Honestly, my favorite part about styling a Boutique Box is receiving the feedback from customers. Whether it is an email telling us how much they love certain items or a note in the box saying why something didn’t work out, it helps us so much to know what to look for next time! It’s so exciting to see a customer tag us in photos of our picks on them! It puts a face to their profile.”

We love being able to connect with people who may not even be local shoppers. Our Boutique Boxes allow us to reach and work with so many women we may not otherwise be able to have the opportunity to get to know. Fashion is about so much more than style and shopping. It brings us together!

So, if you haven’t tried our Boutique Boxes yet, what are you waiting for?! Summer is here, the sun is shining and we can’t wait to send you personalized items to fit your unique summer style. Don't forget to tag us in all your pics!

10 Summer Essentials

Summer essentials all here!

Summer essentials all here!

Happy Fashion Blog Friday, all you beauties! This week we took some time to pick out some super summer essentials we know you need! There are definitely more styles we could recommend, but these are a fabulous starting point for you, especially some you may want to mix and match.

1. This probably goes without saying, but we can’t leave out a gorgeous, flowy maxi dress for all you maxi mavens!

2. We hopped on the embroider trend train a looong time ago! Hop on with us and include an embroidered dress in your wardrobe this summer.

3. Basic tanks are the greatest. You can mix and match, layer them, wear them with shorts, jeans … you name it! Some of our favorites are from Michael Stars.

4. Tropical tops are a no-brainer. Combine a tropical print with an off the shoulder top and you’re set!

5. Let’s not forget denim shorts. They are a mega-must-have! You can wear them with everything.

6. Beaded necklaces are so in and the neutral colors make them super versatile.

7. Colorful kimonos need we say more? Kimonos are a summer must! Pair them with shorts and a crop top, use it as a swimsuit cover up, wear it over a dress … bam! Multiple outfits.

8. White denim because … white denim! You can wear them with anything!

9. Sandals! Okay, it’s summer and you need cute shoes that are more comfortable than flip-flops, right? Right!

10. Bright sleeveless tops! You can dress them up more than a basic tank and if you’re not a fan of sleeveless, wear it under a kimono or light cardigan and a pair of white pants.

Do YOU have these summer essentials? Is there anything you would add to this list? We’d love to hear from you!

XOXO

One Piece, So Many Looks

You love fashion, right? And we all love versatility! Here at Two P’s & Calli’s we love showing you different ways to get the most out of certain fashion pieces. Take, for example, this oh-so-gorgeous Michael Stars shirtdress! It’s just one piece but can be worn so many different ways for multiple occasions.

If you’re headed out for date night and want to spice it up a bit, you can throw it over a gorgeous dress and leave it unbuttoned with some super cute heels! Bam! You’re all ready for a night out on the town.

Feeling a bit more casual but still want to be stylish? No problem! Pair it with a simple top, a cute pair of shorts and knot the sides!

Feel like being simple? Wear this shirtdress solo! You do you, boo! We love it!

Dresses not so much your thing? We get you. Grab a pair of white pants, a light blouse and you’re set!

Now that you’ve seen a few different ways to wear this piece, where would YOU wear it? We’d love to hear your thoughts and your Two P's fashion ideas as well!

We hope you love these fashion tips from our Two P’s team! Watch out for our Friday blog for more fashion posts!

XOXO

This dress is so fabulous, it can be worn all by itself! We do recommend adding some cute shoes, though!

Family Friday



In honor of Family Friday, we’d like to take a moment and reintroduce two of our powerhouse women, the owners and heart of Two P’s & Calli’s, Pam Couch and Calli Swindle. Two P’s & Calli’s actually began out only as Two P’s when Pam and her business partner opened their 400 square foot shop in 1994. Pam has over 23 years of experience and when Calli was 18 years old, she began working full time at the boutique and eventually, they combined their names to create the San Marcos boutique you know and love.

Every business starts with a dream and Pam’s dream consisted of connecting with, supporting and encouraging women. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and being on board full time since high school, Calli shares those same dreams. If you ask, Pam and Calli will tell you one of the most rewarding parts of being a boutique owner is getting to build relationships with customers and their amazing team members. Pam and Calli do an outstanding job building a positive and loving team while also preparing their stylists for their future endeavors, many of whom have gone on to pursue their own careers and open their own boutiques!

Being a boutique owner is about so much more than fashion. They thrive on making women feel strong, important, confident and beautiful. “As we are blessed, we want to bless others,” Pam says. Pam and Calli give back to individuals, families and foundations as often as they can. Owning such a special boutique gives us the opportunity to not only encourage women more, but to teach others how to be kind and encouraging to each other while also working with our own family.

As styles are ever changing, Pam and Calli attend markets and fashion shows to keep up with the evolving trends! Calli’s must-have item in her closet is a perfect pair of fitting premium denim because you can dress them up for a night out or dress them down. Pam loves anything in black from Michael Stars, as she loves the versatility to make it dressy with heels and accessories or go out casual.

A new transition for the boutique is the beginning of selling online, as online shopping has become so popular. However, their hope is that you’ll keep the boutique experience alive and continue to come in and have a blast with our fashion consultants because the boutique experience and connecting with their customers is what they’re all about!

We hope you loved learning a little bit more about the brains and the beauties behind Two P’s & Calli’s and we hope you’ll come by and see us for a chance to get to know our team!
