Shopgirl: Partridge Inn offers sweet idea for Valentine’s Day

SPECIAL Preen Line’s ‘Deanna’ dress comes in a bright yellow hue.

Still looking for Valentine’s Day plans? The Partridge Inn’s events calendar following their revamp a while back has been very impressive, and they’re here to take care of you this V-Day, too.


Valentine’s at The Partridge Inn includes a three-course dinner with a mouth-watering prix fixe menu, as well as champagne and cocktails on the beautiful rooftop penthouse before or after the meal. This holiday offering is available not just on Feb. 14, but on the 15th, 16th and 17th as well. Tickets are $100 and reservations are required, so call (706) 737-8888 to secure your spot.

Overnight accommodations are also available to really amp up your holiday into a staycation, starting at just $149. This package also includes breakfast for two and a bottle of champagne.


WHAT’S TRENDY: If you look at the colors popping up on runways and racks lately, you will feel like a box of Crayola crayons have christened the fashion world. From bright yellow to cobalt blue and kelly green, those primary colors we’ve known since kindergarten are super hot right now.

I’m not a big color person myself, but it’s hard to resist these energizing shades. & Other Stories has a beautiful cobalt sweater right now with slit sleeves and an eyelet detail that could move easily from work to social events.

If you have an occasion coming up where an eye-catching dress is needed, check out Preen Line’s canary yellow ruffled midi dress. It has a lovely texture, and the shade of yellow is a color that looks good on just about everyone.

H&M has a bright green layering trench coat that is just in between kelly green and emerald green, and it’s bound to become a piece you continually reach for.


WHAT’S AFFORDABLE: Custom Snapchat filters have been around for a while, and I’d bet that most Snapchat users have been to an event where the hosts took advantage of the feature to really celebrate “Anna’s 21st” or “#ksplusjks.” But, as the world of social media insists upon, the next new version of this has arrived.

Now, just like you can customize the frame-like filters, you can also customize the “lens” options on Snapchat (think puppy dog ears, or the one where you look like Santa). These customizations are so affordable, and really easy to set up. You don’t need any more notice than a few hours (Snapchat recommends 3 hours to be totally safe), and literally zero programming or design skills .

With more than 150 templates, innumerable add-ons and customizable fonts, there is no limit to what you can do with this new option. Pricing begins at $9.99, and you can get started by going to or by going within the app to Settings then selecting Filters and Lenses.
