The Purple Peanut | Huntsville Mom About Town

Happy Monday everyone!!!

If you’re a Huntsville native then I am SURE you’ve heard of The Purple Peanut and if you haven’t heard of  it then I’m glad that you are reading this post!  The Purple Peanut is a children’s specialty store in the heart of Huntsville, sandwiched between Whitesburg and California Drive.

Owner Alicia Fox and her mom have been running The Purple Peanut  for over 30 years and their reputation exudes that.

They have a fantastic variety of clothes for both boys and girls.  They also carry several hard to find brands of shoes like: Sun San Saltwater Sandals, L’amour, Squeaky Shoes, Angels, Puddle Jumpers and Bobux.

Alicia said that new Spring apparel is arriving daily so this the perfect time to come by get that perfect outfit for Easter or for your upcoming photo shoot! (We highly recommend it if you are looking for a fun outfit for a photo session!!!)

You may not know this but The Purple Peanut also has a gift section that is perfect for birthdays or for just little happy prizes!

For this week only when you buy 4 bows at The Purple Peanut you will receive 1 free if you mention that you read about them from this post! For that matter if you pop in be sure that you tell them that you read about them here.

They offer monogramming to customized pieces just for that child!  (Erin’s daughter received one of these tees when she became a big sister…and it was an instant favorite.)

They also have their winter section on sale for 50% off!!! Be sure to follow them on Facebook so that you can stay connected and learn about all the new items coming in!

And now for the part that I am super excited about…… A gift certificate drawing!!!

The Purple Peanut is giving away a $25 gift certificate here on the blog!!! All you have to do is comment on this post and we will be drawing for it at 8pm Central on Sunday March 27th.  Good Luck!

Oh and speaking of drawings I guess you want to know who won our  Cotton Cottage Gift certificate!!! Be sure to scroll down to the previous post and congratulate our lucky winner. Maybe next week it will be YOU! =)
