Shop, Sip and Sparkle for the Holidays Tonight


Everyone wants a little extra sparkle for the holidays. This year, sip a bubbly signature cocktail shop and treat yourself to a new-vintage fashion-forward accessory from ALUXE at Meredith M. This is the store’s fourth Shop, Sip and Socialize event and the first to include a live trunk show.

The ALUXE trunk show will feature a collection of new- vintage luxury accessories comprised of up-cycled items all made with forgotten treasures that are spotlighted and given a new life. Each piece is unique and special. Founder and creator, Anthony Guthmiller, will be in attendance. Guthmiller began ALUXE in 2013 after spending 12 years hand embroidering a quilt as a surprise for his mother. Upon its completion, he decided to apply hand embroidery to a tie and thus, ALUXE was born. Anthony continues to evolve the brand into unique and different areas including sparkling hair accessories, cufflinks, occasional furniture and more.

Finish up your holiday shopping at Meredith M, a trend-friendly women’s apparel and fashion accessories boutique with a selection of gifts and clothing for babies and toddlers. Guests will receive a 20% discount on all purchases at Meredith M (does not include trunk show items).

“Shop, Sip & Sparkle is the perfect opportunity to purchase last minute holiday gifts and to find that perfect accessory to complement your Holiday outfit. Our team of sales specialists is ready to help you and they’ll even gift wrap your purchases for free, ” said Meredith Miller, owner and founder of Meredith M.

Stop by and enjoy an evening of fashion, fun and shopping and holiday fare and seasonal cocktails and mocktails including their signature cocktail, the Meredith M, a bubbly blend of sparkling wine, tequila, and curacao, that is garnished with orange slices.

Happy Shopping!

Shop, Sip & Sparkle will take place on Thursday, December 17 from 5:00 p.m to 8:00 p.m.

Meredith M is located at 2450 North Lake Avenue in Altadena. For further Information: or
