If you’re reading this, you’ve survived another SXSW… High fives, all around!

Now that our city has been restored to it’s normal state we are ready to announce what we’ve got up our sleeves for April’s Girls Night Out! This April 2nd, from 5-9pm, SoLa will host local non-profit organization Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM) alongside our trunk show featuring local jewelry designer Natalie Tischler with Ornamental Things. These great local finds along side our resident vino extraordinaire, Winebelly Tapas, will be onsite all evening for your perusing pleasure. As always, the sale room will be an additional 50% off and Miss Venus will be eagerly awaiting your arrival… On the condition that you have back scratching skills, of course.

Last month, SoLa partnered with Austin Pets Alive! for a fur filled night full of great deals and doggy kisses! Mr. Lexx and his foster mom, Jessica, came in to share a litte bit of what they do at APA! with our SoLanistas. In true SoLa style, we taught Lexx how to snap a selfie as gratitude for his presence.

Thanks to all the SoLanistas who came out and shopped March GNO and First Thursday, we were able to donate $150 to APA!

For April, SoLa is doubling your pleasure with two of Austin’s finest organizations, HAAM and Ornamental Things. If you are unfamiliar with either, don’t wait to catch an education! HAAM is a non-profit organization founded in 2005 with the goal of providing “access to affordable health care for Austin’s low income, uninsured working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness.” We are so lucky to live in a city fueled by live music. HAAM works diligently to keep Austin’s finest natural resource, live music, healthy. To show our support, 10% of your purchase from SoLa’s First Thursday and Girls Night Out will go to benefit this compelling organization.


Ornamental Things designer, Natalie Tischler, has been daydreaming since day one and it has totally paid off. The Texas native, who studied art at University of Texas, had been making jewelry as a hobby for 12 years before starting Ornamental Things back in 2004. With the inception of her comapany, Natalie developed a unique style of jewelry, drawing inspiration from “bohemian ideas, bold women and living in the moment.” Beginning April 2nd, Ornamental Things will host a trunk show at SoLa through April 20th. This is a great opportunity to see the designer’s entire collection and get your hands on some fabulous local loot.
