Moon and Lola is on the move this holiday season.
The Triangle-based accessories company with stores in Raleigh, Apex and Charleston, S.C., brings its colorful necklaces, cufflinks and monogrammed items to Durham with a holiday pop-up shop at The Streets at Southpoint. The shop celebrates its opening Thursday with a kickoff event from 7 to 9 p.m. that includes the debut of a new collection designed in collaboration with Bob’s Buddies, a charity co-founded by local radio personality Bob Dumas to fund research for pediatric brain tumors. Moon and Lola will donate a portion of proceeds from sales of the collection to the charity, and members of the “Bob and the Showgram” morning show will be on hand during the event. The shop will be across from J. Crew through January. Check out Moon and Lola at moonandlola.com.
The holiday shopping season unofficially kicks off this weekend with the Junior League of Raleigh’s A Shopping SPREE! at the Raleigh Convention Center, Thursday-Sunday. The annual fundraising event features myriad vendors selling clothing, jewelry, accessories, gift items, home décor and more. Tickets are $12 at the door, and proceeds benefit the Junior League’s Center for Community Leadership and community projects. For more info, visit jlraleigh.org.
