The LBD- a wardrobe essential

The most essential piece of clothing in every woman's closet- the LBD or Little Black Dress - is now available for the littlest girls! These fabulously adorable dresses are hand-made especially for Apples'n'Oranges with the finest attention to detail. And I'd just like to add that they are made by Joel's very talented and loving Mamie (my mom!)

Mamie decided that since she had some free time, now that she is retired, she wanted to get back into sewing. She has perfected these dresses, and part of the sale of each dress will be donated to a charity. Mamie hasn't yet decided which charity she would like the funds dontated to, but she's still doing some research.

So please let us know what you think! They come in a variety of colours- so check out the Little Blue Dress and the Little Jean Dress too!

Christmas gift ideas

I thought it might be fun to highlight some of our products in case people are looking for last minute gift ideas. And remember, if you're in Ottawa, delivery is always free. Plus shipping free everywhere in Canada until the 17th, and 1/2 price to the states ($6 instead of $12).

For the mom to be or new mom

These change pads are a must-have for my next baby. The inside is made of minkee and about the most heavenly feeling fabric you've ever felt in your life!!

For the baby you KNOW has the soul of a little old man

Little old man slippers... uhhh... I mean penny loafers. I love these!

Xmas loungewear

What's better than lounging around all day on Christmas day playing with new toys. We love peekaboo beans here at Apples'n'Oranges and only have a couple of pairs of their holiday loungewear - check them out!

Cozy for Xmas eve

A common Xmas tradition is the Xmas-eve pyjama tradition - one I couldn't wait to start with Kiernan. And he'll have a pair of these super comfy cotton PJZZZZZ to open Xmas eve. (well not the ice cream ones ;)

Computer guys

This organic shirt by fig cracks me up - and kind of reminds me of the old Mission Impossible game I used to play on my Commodore 64!

Pretty girls

Accessorize! Girls like to be pretty and flower pot clips are unique!

Do you have any favourites? We'll try to post a few more suggestions in the coming weeks... just to help inspire :)

Merry Christmas!

Our Holiday Open house was great - despite the horrible weather here in Ottawa lately (we got something like 50 zillion centimeters of snow in the last 24 hours - ok, well - I swear it was at least a foot of snow!)

To celebrate the upcoming holidays we've got some special promotions going on.

15% off on P.S.Tees, Red Fish Kids, and Babes in Black. We're also offering free shipping to anywhere in Canada, and half price shipping ($6 instead of $12) to the US from Dec 3 - 16.

Come shop with us!!

Thanks to 5 minutes for mom for promoting our latest giveaway and free shipping promotion. I love finding other mom owned businesses and the gals from 5 minutes for mom are not only examples of moms who started businesses (A Rocking Horse to Love and Pedal Cars and Retro Collectibles) but they're Canadian and really great about promoting other mom run businesses!
