My friend Sarah just started a children’s clothing business called Hazel + Huck, featuring personalized (monogrammed/appliquéd) clothing and accessories. They are having their first show on March 4th and 5th for summer items. To spread the word, they are currently running a contest on their Facebook and Instagram pages for people to enter to win a free appliquéd shirt by liking, sharing, and tagging friends in one of their posts. For more info, visit the Hazel + Huck Facebook page here and/or the Instagram page here.

We are big audiobook fans in my house, but until now I haven’t been able to bring myself to pay for an Audible subscription. I know it’s a better choice financially than buying books on CD, but we’ve made do with what we could find at the library. However, when I saw that Living Social had a deal where you could get 3 months of Audible for $9 I jumped on it! (That’s 3 audiobooks for that price – regularly $45!) Plus, right now you can use promo code shpp for an extra $1 off, making it just $8! Even if you cancel your membership after the 3 months, these audiobooks are yours to keep forever. Plus, Audible offers special discounted prices on other audiobooks, so this would be a great chance to build a collection! Go here to check out this Audible deal!

February 13 & 14, when you purchase a latte at the Vienna Coffeehouse in Maryville, you’ll receive a FREE raspberry lemon bar. I’ve had one of these at Vienna before, and they’re soooo good!

The Knoxville Opera will be performing Humperdinck’s Hansel & Gretel February 26 & 28. If you’d like to see it at a really deep discount, consider attending the student dress rehearsal on Wednesday, February 24 at 6:30 p.m. This full dress rehearsal is exactly the same as the regular performance (the show runs without stopping with full costumes/set) and is FREE for students and just $5 for accompanying adults (cash only, MUST be accompanying a student). You’ll enter the Tennessee Theatre through the Gay Street entrance beginning at 5:30 p.m. For more info on the student dress rehearsal, go here.
Here’s what the show is about:
A Delicious Gingerbread House! A Magical Forest! The beloved tale of two children whose goodness and faith triumph over an evil witch! Performed in English; this lavish production includes a 19-foot tall candied house, trees with blinking eyes, cuckoo birds, 14 angels, and a dancing witch. A sumptuous treat awaits young and old alike as the timeless fable is presented with magnificent music filled with folk tunes and romantic lyricism.
If you’re not able to attend the student dress rehearsal, you can attend the Sunday, February 28 performance at 2:30 p.m., where you can get a student ticket for just $0.01 with purchase of an adult ticket at regular price. Just let them know you’re interested in the Penny4Arts discount (more info here). Advance reservations recommended. At the regular performances, all children are invited to take photos with the cast on the set after the final curtain.
