Mother's Day is just around the corner! Okay so maybe not around the corner, but it's better to be prepared, right? Get to shopping for the most important woman in your life ... mom! Spring is the perfect time to get something bright and colorful, that is sure to put a smile on her face. While you're at it, pick a little something up for Easter, for yourself or your spouse.


1.  New and unique retailers are springing up all over East Texas, like Blue House of Jewelry in Tyler. Blue not only has a cool name, it has really cool jewelry—everything from diamond engagement rings to beautiful investment pieces sprinkled with diamonds and gem stones of all kinds. This diamond and gem stone ring caught my eye and just made it onto my Mother’s Day wish list. By Eden Presley, its unique, elongated design delicately stretches lengthwise across the finger, with 2.53 carats of Zircon; half a carat of stones called “Boulder,” framed by the delicate sparkle of .94 carats of diamonds, set in 14k yellow gold. Stunning. Blue also carries lines that look a million bucks, but won’t cost you that much, like these diamond-cut gold and silver blend hoops and necklace in a rose-gold tone (silver, gold and multi-metallic tones also available) by Officina Bernardi. With a great price point, they are a definite must in every jewelry box!

2.  Steele’s in Troup offers customers a variety of the “florals” designers are releasing out this season, like this light and airy, button up by Magazine, and flora embroidered tunic by Ivy Jane. Match them with a must-have pair of ripped white jeggings by UmgeeU.S.A. to tame the bolder patterns. While you’re picking out that spring wardrobe, make sure you throw in something extra for mom, like this large blush pink tote, powder-blue-hued purse or clutch by Simply Noelle. The pastels make a simple, yet impactful statement this season.

3.  One of Cavender’s top western wear lines has broadened its footwear horizons and is offering a wider range of shoe options for women.  For the mom-on-the-go, pick up a pair of these Fuse sneakers by Ariat. With breathable mesh and a hip design, the lady of the house will be sure to love her new kicks. If she likes more elevated pairs, try these Ariat fringe-accented wedges! 

4.  This one goes out to you ... the moms! Make sure your husbands and sons are on point with their wardrobes. Whether they will be headed to the country club for a Mother’s Day brunch, or hitting the links afterward, make sure they’re dressed to impress.  Southern Tide is an American apparel brand carried by Miller’s Point in Tyler. This multifunctional shirt can go from the office to the great outdoors. The lightweight fabric is quick drying, offers moisture wicking and has thread eyelets for extra ventilation. If that’s not enough to ask for in a shirt, it also offers UV protection. Match it up with a pair of Fish Hippie drift shorts and H.S. Trask shoes, and your guys will be some very dapper dudes!

"Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots"

Oct 01 @ 01:00 pm | Tyler Museum of Art | Tyler, TX

~~One of the most highly anticipated exhibitions in recent years comes to the Tyler Museum of Art with “Andy Warhol: Screen Prints & Snapshots,” open to the public Sunday, Oct. 1 through Jan. 7, 2018 at the TMA, 1300 S. Mahon Ave. on the Tyler Junior College main campus.

The exhibition, organized by the TMA, features close to 40 works by the late Pop Art icon, including a series of Warhol’s signature silkscreen prints drawn from the Cochran Collection of LaGrange, Ga., and a collection of his celebrity-centric Polaroid photographs from the Meadows Museum of American Art at Centenary College of Louisiana.

“Screen Prints & Snapshots” showcases several distinct bodies of work from the later career of Warhol, notably the silkscreen prints from the 1986 “Cowboys and Indians” he completed shortly before his death, spotlighting such iconic subjects as John Wayne, Teddy Roosevelt and Geronimo; his 1981 Myths series, featuring touchstones of American pop culture including Mickey Mouse, Howdy Doody and Superman; and selections from his “Flash,” “Flowers” and “Television” series. Rounding out the exhibition are a selection of Polaroids and silver gelatin prints, shot from 1958 until Warhol’s 1987 death and offering insight into his intimate relationship with his celebrity friends – Dolly Parton, Jack Nicklaus and Pia Zadora among them.

General exhibition admission is $6 for adults and $4 for seniors. Admission is free for TMA members, students, children under 12, Tyler Junior College faculty/staff and City of Tyler employees. Regular Museum hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday (closed Mondays and major holidays). For information, call (903) 595-1001 or visit http://www.tylermuseum.org
