Every October, we are reminded of the strength of women across the country who are faced with the challenges of breast cancer. There's no reason for them to fight alone though, and now is your chance to join the battle for a cure and show your support for friends, family, and loved ones that have gone through such an experience.

Race for the Cure Logo

Bella Vita is proud to be hosting our very own Race for the Cure Team this year, and we'd love for you to join us. Participating is easy, and can be done by viewing the Bella Vita Team Sign Up. Our team goal is $1,500, and with your help we're certain we can reach it.

By signing up with the Bella Vita team, you will be able to run/walk with us on Saturday, October 29. You will also be the recipient of a Bella Vita goody bag complete with your team t-shirt and water bottle, plus a few extra Bella Vita surprises! You and the many women in and around our area will thank you for being involved in this great cause. Plus, we could all use a little exercise, right?

The race will be held on Saturday, October 29, beginning at the Shops at Saddle Creek in Germantown at 8:00 AM. We hope to see you there, and thank you in advance for joining us as we contribute to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and Race for the Cure!

And thanks to Allison Rodgers Photography, we have a fantastic group shot to celebrate with! We had a blast at her Olive Branch studio shooting this shot for our Memphis Most 2011 photo. As you can see, she did a GREAT job at capturing our personality!

We love, and are honored, that you have decided to continue to support both Bella Vita and local businesses, and we strive to make it the best possible shopping experience each and every time you enter our store or our website. We will continue to hunt down the best possible unique and local products so that you can continue to enjoy the unique atmosphere at Bella Vita.

Here's to another great year, Memphis!

"New Market Arrivals" is always such a big Bella Vita affair each year that it's hard to believe we're announcing the same thing at Itty Bitty Bella! It has only been 5 months since Itty Bitty Bella opened, but some days it still feels like a dream waiting to hatch.

Like we've said before, we couldn't be happier with Itty Bitty Bella and although two stores at times can be stressful, it's so exciting to watch them both grow and benefit from each other (it really sounds like Bella Vita had a child, doesn't it!).

To keep you all in loop, we'll share some of our favorite "new market arrivals" from two doors down. We know lots of you don't have children, or are out of the children phase (until grandkids come!), but we still think it's fun to snoop around and see all the exciting new trends in baby and children supplies. So here's to snooping!

Fall Clothing

Clothing Display
We have been head over heels for our new fall clothing lines. Pink Chicken, Mimi and Maggie, and Angel Dear all boast bright and colorful patterns for girls newborn through size 6 (we can order up to size 12). Great boy lines are on their way as well, so stay tuned!


Toy Display
Puzzles, books, games, plush toys, wooden toys and automobile toys are taking over Itty Bitty Bella! From beginner puzzles and newborn "squish" toys to big kid puzzles, games, sticker books, and more there's something for everyone. Keeping kids occupied while you get a couple things done around the house will no longer be an issue!

For Mom

Inspirational books, how-to books, and agendas are all here waiting to help make your days a little easier. Mom Agenda will keep you and your kids on track, while our inspirational books will give you the boost you need to carry on...calmly!

Diaper bags are not just for the baby...they're for your too. After all, it will be your purse for the next 1+ years! From the new Petunia Pickle Bottom fall collection to the sleek style of Timi and Leslie, you will feel both stylish and confident as you stroll through the park, the mall or the grocery store.


Itty Bitty Bella Gift Cards
There you have it, just a few of our favorite things! Itty Bitty Bella has been such a wonderful addition to Bella Vita that we want to make sure you experience it as well. Leave us a comment below and let us know what one thing saved (saves) your life as a mother, and we'll enter you to win a $75 Itty Bitty Bella gift card! Winner will be chosen at 5:30 pm CST on Saturday, August 27, 2011.
