Swoozie’s Turns Ten!


Haute off the Press:

Pop. Fizz. Clink! Swoozie’s at The Summit is celebrating ten years of business in Birmingham on Wednesday, October 7. The Exceptional Foundation and local companies join Swoozie’s at The Summit as they TOAST to TEN with special discounts all day and an over the top soiree from 5pm to 7pm.

“The Birmingham community has supported Swoozie’s and our growing business over the past ten years,” says Ashley O’Donnell, Marketing Director for Swoozie’s. “As we toast to ten years in Birmingham, we are showcasing several local artists and purveyors at our event to celebrate Birmingham.”

Local companies to be showcased at the event include:

  • Paint Caroline’s Carrie Pittman, artist
  • State Traditions, clothier
  • Inspirations by Janie, jeweler
  • Zines & Letters, home decor
  • Dixie Creative, jeweler
  • Exceptional Foundation, beneficiary of the event

Customers will receive 10% off throughout the day with an even deeper discount of 20% off from 5 to 7pm. A portion of the day’s sales will benefit The Exceptional Foundation. The first 25 guests to RSVP to swoocrew@swoozies.com will receive a bag full of Swoo. In addition, students who show their college ID during the party will receive an unlimited vinyl personalization pass, $50 printing pass and two free monogramming passes for the month of October. Swoozie’s will be giving away prizes throughout the evening valued at $100 each.

Shop with Swoozie’s this Saturday!


Looking for a fun boutique experience with fab finds at a variety of price points? Then let me tell you about Swoozie’s! This store is my go-to for baby, bridal and housewarming gifts, and it’s also my destination for stationery and hostess items with pizzazz (okay, and random pick-me-ups)! It’s the perfect spot to find distinctive gifts for colleagues, friends, family…and yourself! It reminds me of my favorite stores growing up: Surprises Inside at Cordova Mall and The Treasure Chest in my hometown. I can always find something special and well-made when I stop by The Summit store.

I’ve also used Swoozie’s in-house custom invitation service and my experience in designing invitations and personal stationery with their team was superb. AND they monogram! From stationery and party supplies to home goods and jewelry as well as unique gifts for social occasions, you just can’t go wrong.

This Saturday (May 3rd), Swoozie’s is hosting a housewarming party at their new location at The Summit, and YOU’RE INVITED! Pop in between 11 AM and 2 PM for door prizes, discounts, cocktails and  of course – great shopping! The new Swoozie’s is located next to Bed Bath and Beyond.

Be sure to follow Same Chic Different Day on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@samechicdifferentday)? I’ll be sharing fab tips and items from Swoozie’s this evening!
