Mama’s Got a Brand New Bag (for you)

September 23rd, 2013

Handbag giveaway sponsored by Country Outfitter blog, home of my new column, New South Style.


I’m delighted to announce that I’m writing a weekly fashion and lifestyle column called New South Style, for Arkansas-based online retailer Country Outfitter. (Those are my beloved Justin boots pictured above —  a gift from the company to Arkansas Women Blogger conference attendees last year).

Over the past several months, I’ve been quietly hammering out a strategy for working with brands that my readers and I can both feel good about, while supporting regular Dandelions content and my offline writing. This gig sets the bar high, with a fun topic, and really fabulous prizes for you each month. Starting with this:


Patricia Nash Benvenuto Convertible Tote in Tan (retail value $198)

To enter, just leave a comment on this post you are reading now, and be sure you include your email address, either in the comment itself or comment form. A winner will be randomly selected from emails collected, which will all be forwarded to Country Outfitter. You will be subscribed to marketing email from them, but you can easily adjust or cancel that subscription to suit your preference. If you have won a giveaway on Planting Dandelions in the past twelve months, I ask that you pass the link along to friends instead, and wish them luck.

After you’ve entered, I hope you’ll click over to my introductory column listing 5 Great Things About the South, and give it a like or a tweet. The next edition posts tomorrow (and Tuesdays thereafter), so y’all be sure to come back and read about my Southern Fall Fantasy Escapes.

Giveaway ends at midnight CST September 27, and eligibility is restricted to residents of the continental U.S. Thanks for reading, always, and good luck!
