Shop 2 Help


Friends! Monday night combines 2 things we love: an opportunity to help others & our very own Ricky Braddy!

Here’s the plan:

Ricky will be performing Monday night, February 8, as a part of “Idols for Haiti.” The show is at 8 PM at 3rd & Lindsley and features our dear Ricky along with other American Idol alums Brent Keith, Felicia Barton, Anne Marie Boskovich, and Alex Wagner-Trugman. As if seeing Ricky and the other Idols live isn’t enough, they’ll also have a Haiti donation center, and all money collected will go to “Buckets of Hope for Haiti.” And that’s where we all come in! We will be donating 10% of our proceeds from today and Monday at Ricky’s show that night. So, if ever you were thinking of dropping by, today or Monday would be the day to do it, because not only will you walk out with a fabulous new treat, but you’ll also know that you’re doing a little something good for the world.

So, join us at the store, join us at the show, and join us in doing our part to help!

Dear Movie Night


So….what are YOU doing Thursday night?????

You COULD be going to the Dear John sneak peak at Green Hills Cinema, like Ricky & Rachel. Here’s the deal: we only have 15 passes, so the first lucky 15 purchases today and tomorrow will get a Dear John Thursday night pass. And each pass admits 2, so it’s not too early to think about finding a special someone to treat to a movie with Valentine’s Day right around the corner. Ricky will be purchasing today and taking Rachel, but he promises to have her home in time to catch the second half of the Suns-Mavericks game. What about you, Nashville? What will your next 2L purchase get you?

His Favorite Day of the Year


Friends, any of you who know Danny know that he is a Converse man to a fault! As such, he eagerly awaits market season so that he can catch up with the Converse by John Varvatos team, check out what’s new and improved in the line, and, of course, make nice with the people who truly understand him….the mannequins. And why shouldn’t he enjoy a little one-on-one time with them? They’re perfectly styled, certainly not as clever as he, and they’re always willing to give him the clothes off their back. It’s a rare moment, once a season, that Danny gets to stand in such good company.

And if you, like Danny, want to stand out among your own crowd of mindless friends, impress them by winning our Converse Contest. Not familiar? Click on the Converse tab under the categories on your right to read about the contest and view the front-runners thus far. There’s still time to qualify for the $10 gift card, so we recommend acting fast before Danny gets witty with his mannequin buddies and submits an entry that blows away the competition.

Resolution: Remember What’s Important


Friends, I’m writing today, as I sometimes do on special occasions in the first person, as it’s time to ring in the new year. I could write to you about the sales we’re having or about the perfect New Year’s Eve dress (it’s the Modern Amusement Lou Lou dress, btw), but instead, I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on our most exciting and exhausting year yet. 2009 will of course be remembered as the Hill Center year for us. Our Hill Center grand opening was one of the most monumental experiences of my life, and I had all of you there, standing by my side, to share in it. Any of you who know me well, however, know that the monumental is never as significant to me as the little things. And 2009 was a year full of lots of little things. It was the year that brought us Ricky. It was also the year that Ellie left. It was the year that Amanda went off to New York. It was also the year that she came back. It was the year that Stephen reclaimed his post as my Saturday right-hand-man. It was also the year that Kristin joined our family in an official capacity. It was the year that I had to say goodbye to Frothy Monkey as my local coffeeshop but took a piece of them with me in the form of Becca. It was the year that my family spent more time in Nashville than they surely ever imagined as they joined me in this giant leap of faith. It was a year of music; Britten, Pico vs. Island Trees, Kopecky Family Band, Laura Sweeney, and Newmatic have all graced our stage. It was a year of adventure and discovery, and, as I examined my desktop for a picture that captured my 2009, I came across this one that littlest brother Adam sent me of the pair of chucks that got him through his first semester at RISD. These star players were our 2009. They’re tattered and covered in the marks of fresh starts and creativity, but they still sparkle as only a true classic can.

Thanks for 2009, everyone. See you next year!

Hill Center for the Holidays


This Sunday, our neighborhood kids (aka daughters of Snap & Popo) graced us with a drum solo, warming our hearts with the spirit of community and reminding us of a movement we like to call “SHOP LOCAL.”

We’ve always believed in supporting our local businesses, especially at the holidays, but in our new Hill Center location one-stop shopping really is possible for all your holiday needs.

Does she love Bond No. 9 perfumes (like Rachel does)? Cosmetic Market has them!

Is there a little girl in your life who needs a tutu? Snap has them!

Do you like shopping for toys regardless of your age? We recommend Popo.

Want to give your home a gift that’ll last beyond the holiday season? Absolutely go to Mitchell Gold.

Oooh, and if you really want a treat (that will absolutely not last beyond the holiday season), we say visit Provence. Rachel & Ricky like to pair the caramel tart with their americanos. And on healthier days, Rachel & Stephen visit Whole Foods for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.

Basically, what we’re saying is that the Hill Center has everything you need to get you through the holidays.

And make sure to check in with us on twitter @twoellerabbits, because we’re still receiving holiday shipments, and @twoellefrank may have some special offers for you, too!
