When Kendra Scott comes to Nashville for the grand opening of her Nashville store, you can count on me to be there (I'm still squealing inside, shhhh, don't tell anyone)! Kendra traveled in from Austin, TX where she resides with her adorable family (seriously, the perfect little family), and spent a few days in Nashville spreading the word about her amazing brand and of course, spreading her love for philanthropy into our community as well. Kendra's values = family, fashion, & philanthropy!
The local Nashville store was lucky number #28 and we Nashvillians couldn't be more happy to be graced with her presence and prominent influence within our community. There is so much more to Kendra Scott than just AMAZING beautifully designed jewels...she & her brand are like the most perfect package wrapped up into a generous gift, which keeps giving, and giving, and giving.
Philanthropy is near and dear to Kendra's heart and while here, she partnered with country music artist Cam to present a $10,000 check to the ACM Lifting Lives organization, which develops and funds music related therapy and education programs. You can read more about ACM Lifting Lives HERE. What is even more impressive is that within the last 12 months, Kendra Scott has donated $1 million dollars and 50,000 jewelry pieces to local and national organizations.
I can personally attest to Kendra Scott's love for philanthropy and her generous giving spirit as she donated well over $300 to the local American Heart Association when I hosted my "Kendra Gives Back" event this past July...full recap on my event HERE.
Kendra wrapped up her time here in Nashville with a grand opening party and what a party it was! From the beautiful decorations, to the delightful talented team at the local store, to the hors d'oeuvre's, to the delicious cupcakes provided by Gigi's Cupcakes, to the fabulous guest list and atmosphere, etc...the evening couldn't have been painted anymore perfect.
AND again, demonstrating her generosity, each guest received a complimentary golden ticket (not really but it felt like a golden ticket ;-)) to customize their very own unique piece of Kendra Scott jewelry as a "thank you" for attending the event. Can you tell just how incredibly AMAZING she is?!
As you can tell, I had the opportunity to meet her as well and WOW...I think I'm still speechless. She is such a class act who presents herself as very down to earth and beyond humble. I felt like I was chatting with a girlfriend that I've know for years. Her presence lights up a room and her beauty absolutely shines from within. I've always been a HUGE fan of Kendra Scott's but I'm even more of a fan of not only her jewelry but of her and all that she believes in and stands for as well.
The event was a great successes and I feel so lucky to have been a part of it! I'd like to extend a special THANK YOU to Kendra Scott, the local Nashville Kendra Scott team (YOU GIRLS ROCK), & Legacy PR.
