Have you ever shopped at Fleur de Lys in Costa Mesa? If not, you are really missing out! And if you have, you know what I’m talking about – it’s a charming shop where you can always find the perfect gift for the person who has everything! They sell lots of amazing gift items, including my favorite ever perfume, Tokyo Milk.
And throughout the month of July, Fleur de Lys has partnered with Homefront America and Operation Gratitude to help support our military families. You mean I can shop at one of my favorite stores AND help military families?!? That’s a win-win for sure!
Real OC Daughter and I are super excited to help out with the school supply drive. Fleur de Lys is collecting new backpacks and school supplies for Homefront America’s “Pack for Success” program. This program provides backpacks and school supplies to children stationed at local military bases. We went to Target and picked out some fun supplies, along with a cute princess backpack, and are looking forward to sending it off to a little girl starting school in the fall.
They are also collecting items for care packages (snacks, toiletries, socks, etc.) and new stuffed animals to be dressed in fatigues and given to children whose parents are being deployed overseas. These are all such great ways to help out the men and women who work so hard for us.
Finally, the weekend of July 30th and 31st, Fleur de Lys will donate 20% of all sales to support our military families. They will also have snacks provided by Plum’s restaurant, which is right next door to the shop and SO yummy!
So, if you’re looking for a fun way to help out in the community and get your kids involved, consider checking out Fleur de Lys this month to help support our military.
