Boy Oh Boy!!!

Caden John is C. Orrico's newest friend weighing in at 7lbs 3 oz.

Diana and Michael Perry welcomed their son into our happy world today. Congratulations and job well done. We can not wait to have him in the store for play time with the Orrico girls.

Cornelias Quest

This months Quest Magazine features Cornelia Guest as the cover girl. Of course donning her Lilly dress. She really is the epitome of classic style and elegance. The article says it all.

Accessorized in only the simplest Turquoise earring teardrops.

She is also one of our dearest friends. We thank her for always supporting C. Orrico over the past 20 years. She always gives us credit. We couldn't ask for a better head cheerleader. Sis Bum Rah! We love you.


you look absolutely gorgeous and that is what everyone has said upon picking up the copy at the store.

New or Nui

Sneak peak for this upcoming season we found a really cool designer. Her name is Nui. She has one style dress that we can not live without. One size fits all in the softest jersey knit. I thought the same thing. Jersey knit? One size? This dress can not fit well. WRONG!
I just received my Nui yesterday to try. I am never taking it off. Then we tried it on our girls in the store. They range from size 2 to size 10. They all looked great. The length can be adjusted with one straight snip with scissors. We have a plethora of colors and prints coming in this Fall. Wear it with flips or dress it up with strappy Choos. Pashmina wrap it or jean jacket, either way you won't take it off either.

Swimming Lessons

This past weekend Casey,Kathie and myself took off to Miami for a night of googling at scantily clad models walking the walk at the Tibi Swimsuit Fashion Show.

Yes we will be carrying the line. Yes, it is amazing. It will be in the stores November 15, 2008 for Resort wear.

We dined at Devitos... more like a good ole pig out, but we will go with dined. The next day we spent at the Swim Show. We should basically change the name of our store to Tunics R Us. Tunics everywhere. Is there an easier item on the planet? We also saw Trina Turks Swim Line. Can you say A M A Z I N G!!! OK so the store next season will rival Swim n Sport. We will just call our new location C. Orrico Swim...

Kenny in C. Orrico?

Our dear friend Kenny Chesney came to visit us today ..... Fooled you. My crazy sister "borrowed" this advertisement out of a certain grocery store today.

We now have him in the store for you to play with. He is actually a lot of fun.

Come by and see him.

Florence Forever

I am going to cook every night for the rest of my life. Why. Because I met Tyler Florence today in Atlanta. Me Casey and Kathie were at a seminar at the Merchandise Mart today for Tyler's new book, Tyler's Ultimate. He made the Pork Tenderloin and Grilled potato salad with a side of Verde sauce. They passed out little sampler plates of this delicious dish. To say the least we will be having pork when we get back in town.
Tyler is a beefcake in every sense of the word. Someone in the audience requested to ask a personal question. Tyler looked down with a devilish smirk and said, " What boxers or briefs?" The audience giggled for a whole minute. He stole our hearts with his adorable personality. What came thru all the fun, he truly loves his job. His job: to teach us how to cook properly and appreciate food to the point of "having a moment" when tasting food.
Thanks Tyler I will not forget today's lesson for some time to come.

Wireless Route

I love my new wireless router card for my computer. Hence, I am not incommunicado.

Well, we have stopped twice and it is only 8:31. Only 6 more to go and I win.

We felt incredibly guilty passing Disney. M I C K E Y Mouse....lalalalala

We are fully loaded on Starbucks. Kathie is driving I am co-pilot and Casey.... Shhhh she is asleep. Well she woke up for a minute yelled at us for stopping to hard at a Sunpass gate and then went back to sleep.

The joys of a roadtrip.

We are off

Ok It is 5:45 am and we are on the road. Already I have been asked not to back seat drive.

So sorry, but when the speed limit is 55mph and you are at a lightning speed of 42mph and to boot in the exit lanes merging constantly, than I feel the need to speak up.
Kathie has us fully loaded with every snack known to man. Of course Whole Foods finest. We are organic. The ultimate green machine.

It is still dark out but when the sun comes up and we hit a fun destination I will add photos of the famous "Orrico Sister Road Trip".

Road Trip

Three sisters, one car, 10 hours.

This epic trip will take us in a loaded Suburban from Palm Beach all the way to Atlanta.

Tune in for candid pictures of the famous Orrico Sister Road Trip. Do not try this at home kids.

We are headed to the Home Show in Atlanta. The icing on the cake.

Kenney Chesney will be in concert Sunday July 13. Guess who has backstage passes....

See you tomorrow at 5:30 am when the fun starts.
Guess how many times we will stop on the way up.... Mine is 8.

King of the Courts

Well I have been watching Tennis all day long. One Match. Two Champions. One winner.

Rafael Nadal won his first Wimbledon Title today against rival and 5 time champ Roger Federer.

After rain delays and 5 sets with uncountable tie breaker points and match points missed It ended 4-6 4-6 7-6 7-6 9-7.

Personally, I love Roger, and I love his sweater with the "F" embroidered on the left flank. I think I need one with an "O".

Congratulations to both. Can't wait til the US Open.

Big Bang

To celebrate the Fourth of July we are open from 11-5. Then we will get ready for our fireworks celebration.

Eat hot dogs and have a beer if permitting.

Happy Fourth of July.

Don't forget about the SALE which will end tomorrow.

Large Iced Latte

This will not be an enormous undertaking. Although Starbucks is closing over 600 of their stores nationwide, you can still survive without caffeine withdrawal.
Just get an espresso maker. Nothing fancy, any kind will do.
Make the espresso.
Fill a glass with ice.
Pour your espresso in.
Top it off with iced cold milk.
You can make it with vanilla extract or get flavorings at any specialty store.
Every time I walk into my girlfriends house I make one right off the bat. I also make one every morning at home. To boot it's all organic at home!!
May this give you some hope for the future.
