Soft Surroundings Grand Opening: Lakeside Shopping Center Metairie, Louisiana

PR Event: Happy First Day Of Spring Everyone! I was invited to Soft Surrounding's Grand Opening in Lakeside Shopping Center last Thursday (3/14/19). I've received their catalog for years, so I was truly excited to hear a store would be nearby. Lakeside Shopping Center has been around since I was a little girl. I remember shopping at Lakeside with my mom. It would be a half-day event :) Like many malls, for a couple of years it went down and people didn't go as much. Well, there's been a revitalization! Top stores are now at Lakeside! They have over 130 shops & eateries. I was so happy to hear that Soft Surroundings was added to the Lakeside family. I attended the private VIP Event Thursday evening. The Grand Opening, which was opened to the public, occurred Friday morning at 10 am. I took my mom.

The store is nestled between Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn. Soft Surroundings has the perfect spot because the relaxing fountain found in front of the store adds to the stores ambiance and theme. We were immediately greeted with champagne, water and snacks. My eyes lit up when I saw a sign that said, if you spend $200 you get a free beauty product OF YOUR CHOICE that's $50 or less. Free beauty product? That never happens, so I was curious as to the brands they carried. To spend $200 in Soft Surroundings is really easy. I had already picked out a couple of things, I thought my mom would be interested in. This Soft Surroundings is a little smaller than most, but they still carried a lot of things. If you get the catalog, mark what you want and ask a sales associate if they wouldn't mind finding it for you. They can also order anything that is not physically at the store. All the managers and sales associates were very attentive, personable, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. They were all amazing! I didn't want for anything ;)

From their catalog, Soft Surroundings has always been about relaxation! They have beautiful bedding, loungewear, robes, room sprays and overall just things that will make you RELAX! Don't we all need that in our lives!?! I live for peace & tranquility. I run from anything that causes me stress. I loved the white robe and comforter below. They also have a great BEAUTY section! I recognized brand names of Peter Thomas Roth, Lipstick Queen, Farmhouse Fresh etc.

Besides loungewear and beautiful things for the BOUDOIR, Soft Surroundings is also venturing into clothes. I told my mom, that their newest Spring Catalog had a beautiful green dress in it that I wanted her to try on. When she saw it in the store, she said Kim I also want the black one as well. HaHaHa She purchased both! Another lady turned to her and said get it...NO REGRETS! I love their tunics! Many are asymmetrical and were paired with gorgeous jewelry. They have the cutest straw totes & hats that will take you into Summer. Their clothes selection has definitely expanded.

I didn't realize Soft Surroundings carried such beautiful jewelry! Their jewelry selection is absolutely gorgeous! I usually go for dainty jewelry, but I was salivating over all of this beautiful textured jewelry. Double-layered hammered gold necklaces. Geometric earrings. Layers of colors, such as red, over neutrals. I will definitely go back ;)

I thought it was so cute that they also had holiday decor displayed! It put me into the Easter and Springtime Spirit. This time of year is always so pretty! It makes you want to throw everything you have OUT and bring in NEW STUFF!

The dressing rooms are really nice at Soft Surroundings. Floor to ceiling lighted mirrors. Chic chair. They write your name on the dressing room door. My mom purchased two dresses and two tunics. She received 15% off her purchase. We both agreed, her FREE beauty product would be the Farmhouse Fresh Moon Dip. I'll do a review of it for you tomorrow. I can already tell you it's DREAMY! We had a great time! I would like to thank Jessica for inviting my mom & I! I would like to thank everyone that worked that evening for making us feel like princesses. I had a great time.
