After a near-perfect season, the Carolina Panthers are set to face off against the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl this weekend. And for those looking to show their pride in a slightly more chic way than donning a jersey or T-shirt, a new line of NFL team bangle bracelets from Alex and Ani featuring the Panthers logo are just the thing.
The charm bangle bracelets are available at alexandani.com. Local stores such as Bailey’s Fine Jewelry, Anfesa’s Jewelers and Swagger carry Alex and Ani jewelry; call to ensure selection.
Formalwear trunk shows
With prom and wedding season on the horizon, local retailers are gearing up with trunk shows featuring the latest in formal attire. Here’s what’s on tap for this week:
▪ Savvi Formalwear and Bridal opened its seasonal prom shop in Raleigh’s Crabtree Valley Mall this week. Located across from Forever 21, the store will have gowns from brands such as Jovani, Faviana and LeGala, among others. The store only offers one of each gown they order, to ensure no two customers will show up to the prom in the same dress. The store is open through April 30.
▪ Savvi’s main location in Pleasant Valley Promenade in Raleigh will have popular bridal gowns from Casablanca in store for a Casablanca Trendsetters Showcase, Saturday through Monday. Shoppers will receive discounts on orders made during the event. For details, call 919-783-8911.
▪ Fine Feathers boutique in Chapel Hill hosts a dual trunk show of formalwear this week. The store will have evening jackets and separates from Nina McLemore and gowns and cocktail dresses from Frascara, Thursday through Saturday. To make an appointment, call 919-942-3151.
