Shabby Apple Dress Giveaway!!

Shabby Apple has some of the cutest clothing, especially women's dresses and accessories, and I've had many of their items bookmarked in my "drool file," for some time.  They have a new Spring line out called Roamin Holiday, and I knew in an instant I would love this collection because when I was in high school, I had the maddest crush on Gregory Peck from the movie, Roman Holiday.  I loved the way he wore a three button suit. Sigh. 
  Anyway, I am so excited to host this giveaway so that one of you can have the opportunity to win the adorable, L'ete dress, because I love you guys, and you've been sticking with me through all my moving/not moving/sad/trying to be upbeat, nonsense for months.
I chose the L'ete dress,  because I instantly thought "Summer," the first time I saw it.  I love a dress you can throw on with flip flops, or dress up for a night out with strappy wedge heels.  I felt that this particular cut would be flattering on nearly every shape.  

Shabby Apple is also offering a 10% discount to each of you!  Simply use the coupon code, "lemonademakinmama10off" when you place your order! And lastly, I've got to tell you guys this, because it's close to my heart.  Shabby Apple gives a percentage of your sales to help women worldwide.  You can go here and read many of their stories!
 I whole heartedly support any organization who is willing to get their hands in the game and help others, and I hope you guys do to!
  In order to enter, please click comments below, and share something fun you plan to do this summer. (Preferably without spending any money or going very far.)

For additional entries, blog, tweet, or facebook about this giveaway, then come back to tell me about each one in separate comments.  You can also "like" Shabby Apple on facebook for one more entry, so long as you come back and tell me you did! 

I'll be choosing a winner this weekend and perhaps you'll even have it in time to wear on Easter Sunday.

Good luck sweet friends. 


Please note, dress can not be exchanged, and winner must have a US mailing address.

  5. We're going to Ireland this summer to spend time with family at my Parents house right next to a lake. I am planning to spend time with my boys (5 and 2) and just enjoy them. It's amazing how the simple things really make them happy....like digging in dirt, looking at the cows and jumping in puddles!! I want to savor every minute because I know they are fleeting!
    Thanks for your blog! I really enjoy it!

    This summer I plan on diving into our garden and learning how to can veggies. "Waste not, want not", right? It will be especially fun because it's the first summer with our baby girl by our side. Hope she learns to like veggies as much as we do. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. okay why haven't i thought about summer? maybe because i can't think beyond next week. ummmm let's see....i know it will involve many walks after dinner. days spent lounging in our neighborhood pool. lazy afternoon phone calls to sweet friends who live far away...from my wicker porch swing. ah now i'm getting a little excited;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, I LOVE Shabby Apple dresses!

    We`ll be going to the beach this summer! It`s not far at all. A 15 minute walk from my house. We have a man-made lake in our neighbourhood that is for residents only, so it`s a nice, clean, safe beach with a big playground. Now that my little guy is big enough to play and enjoy it, I hope we`ll go often.

    We`ll also go strawberry picking. We did that last year and those strawberries were the best I`ve ever had!

    Oh, now you`re getting me excited for summer! It`s supposed to snow tomorrow...

  28. i just had my first chance to play pickleball since last summer, so i'm itching for the weather to change so my husband and i can have some pickleball parties at our house!!

  37. Hi SASHA! I'm back into the blogging world now that I have internet in my apt, after a year without!
    Won't be going far from home this summer. Walks up the road with the dogs to the sparkly, clean creek that has a swimming hole. Picnics atop mountains, bike rides to the milkshake shop, and fishing on the Snake River are in my foreseeable future. And of course I can totally see hitting up the farmers market in the shabby apple dress followed by a romantic dinner on a patio by the river. It will be on my blog post tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Sooo funny! I have about 7 of their dresses bookmarked right now trying to decide which one, and if they're worth the expense! It would be sweet to win one!

    We got an incredible deal on pool passes, so me and Z will probably be at the pool every day!

  42. Shabby Apple dresses are so fun and flattering. We found one while thrifting for my teenage daughter but it wasn't her color. We left it for some other happy girl! This summer we plan to stay close to home and make our backyard a place of fun and good memories! The kids are planning multiple tie die sessions and hours fixing up the tree house with some 'oops' paint and imagination!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Dah-ling dress!!!

    This summer we are taking all four kids camping, hiking, and rafting together!! My "baby" turned 4-years old a few weeks ago, and he's ready to join our nature crew now. :)

  44. Love the Shabby Apple giveaways I have been seeing throughout other blogs. Unfortunately I have not won yet! So I'm so glad that they gave you the opportunity to do one of their giveaways. Keeping my fingers crossed this time.

    This summer I plan on hiking as much as I can with my family. It's cheap and great exercise.

  45. i am in love with the shabby apple. their dresses are to.die.for. we are on a "financial lockdown" of sorts, so this summer we plan on having many "stay"cations in our backyard. we have been prepping and cleaning, getting ready for an amazing veggie garden, making a play structure for the kiddos, truly making our backyard a retreat for us. thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  46. What a fun dress! Our big plans for this summer consist of a weekend fo Chicago (four hours from home) to see a taping the NPR show Wait Wait Don't Tell Me! We're very excited, as both my husband and I are NPR nuts.

  49. For $500 my family will make a trip to the East Coast. My husband travels extensivley for his job and one of the ONLY perks are his hotels points and airline miles. Being gone nearly every week, we cherish this new tradtion we have started. I sell old clothes, toys etc at a garage sale and whatever else on Craiglist...this is our fun money! We leave all phones, computers etc put away and focus on ourselves and our two boys for the entire stay. We have two fun meals out and everything else I pack in a cooler. Its a slice of Heaven!

  52. Thanks for considering us for this giveaway Sasha! Even though we are miles away, you feel like a dear friend and you often in my prayers.

  60. I LOVE this dress! Yay! Let's see...summer plans.

    There is a river near us that is very shallow and warm in the summer. On really hot days, you can float the river on any kind of blow-up thing you can find. It takes about 3 hours to get down the river and it's one of my favorite things to do!

    ReplyDelete
  61. LOVE that dress . . . adorable! This summer we are going to take our boys back country hiking! It's unbelievable to camp out surrounded by God's beautiful creation, showing them how HUGE He really is. I always feel so close to my Savior when I'm away from the everyday world. I'm so excited to share this time with my boys and my amazing husband :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. LOVE it! I have a LBD that is almost an identical cut and agreed...it is SO flattering!! Wore it for a dinner out with my hubby shortly after baby #3 was born and felt like a million bucks! Now that the baby weight is shed and summer is around the corner would LOVE something bright & cheery!!

    Summer plans include lounging by our inground pool out back and sipping Smirnoff Lemonade over crushed ice with a splash of Sprite Zero!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  63. This summer we plan to spend many, many hours at the neighborhood pool now that we live back in a neighborhood! My middle kid, Molly, says to everyone who will listen, "We are going to play at the pool from 9am until lunchtime. We will walk home for lunch and then maybe go back or take a nap. We're gonna do that everyday...my Mom says." We will also be reading, reading, reading and reading some more!

    ReplyDelete
  64. well...since the colors of this lovely dress would go so perfectly with my kids' easter duds...count me in!

  67. We have big plans for Friday night cookouts(usually pizza and family movie night with Netflix). Also, due to my husband's work schedule, while we won't be able to travel far for camping out, we plan to drag the tent out and set it up in the backyard once a month for a big family campout at home! Naturally, there will be s'mores around the campfire too :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. That dress is so cute! I definitely agree that it screams summer!

    I'm part of a meetup group (Shy Gals of Seattle) and we are doing something like every other weekend, from Mariners games to picnics to hiking. And at the end of summer, I'm getting married! Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Love those Shabby Apple dresses.

    One thing I am going to try and do is have a summer day camp at my house. Not every day or even every week but perhaps 4 times this summer planned with lots of activities and snacks for all of my boys friends.

    And we are definitely hitting the beach as often as possible.

  81. Do you think it would look cute on a grandma too?
    I could sure use a new dress since there are 2 in my closet. We've been invited to Daughin island to visit friends which will only cost us gas and food. Did I really just say ONLY to GAS?

    ReplyDelete
  82. cute dresses!!

    My mom found out in the fall that she has a half sister living in England (yes, that means I AM related to the Queen and AM a princess!!!!!!) so my aunt is coming out to BC to meet my whole family. I am pretty excited to meet her and learn more about her. She has been searching for us for almost 20 years, can you imagine.

  96. No summer plans yet. In fact, I'm kinda dreading summer right now. Mostly 'cuz while the camp thing was crazy I LOVED the routine of eating in the dining hall, having people around to love my kids, walking around camp, swimming at the lake, etc. etc. Okay, sorry, I get depressed thinking about it. Obviously still have some issues to work out!

    This summer, my 7 yr old daughter is a first time swim-teamer, my 5 yr old daughter is taking up cheerleading, and we'll be doing VBS at our church, and trying to get a little beach time in too. I hope you are doing something fun too!
