When in doubt, turn to Martha Stewart. Though we’ve posted about spring cleaning previously, perhaps you’ll want to take another look at your closet (take advantage of being inside where it is cool) and consider eliminating these items:
Old Denim If you're swimming in a sea of denim, it's time to reevaluate and identify the pairs that don't fit well (or the ones you simply don't love) and toss them.
Concert T-Shirts You'll always have the memories of your first teenage concert, but that doesn't mean you have to keep the t-shirt. It's time to let go of the shirt memorabilia, especially since they're keepsakes only.READ MORE
Many of us tend to grab water, or club soda, to try and remove food or liquid spilled on our clothing.
Ironically, water will set the stain, making it more difficult to remove. We ask that you simply blot the stain with a dry cloth, mark the stain -- and, if you have the time, pin a note telling us what was spilled -- and, bring it in on your next visit.

One of our EmBELLish vendors, Park Hill Collection (best candles around), suggests this PRO TIP: Don't be afraid to use yellow to complement your already existing décor color palette. Adding pops of yellow to blues and greens will give you a fresh spring look.
So go outside and grab some lemons...life just gave you the perfect excuse to make lemonade. Enjoy!
Try to buy hangers made of natural wood as they will help absorb the moisture from the fabric after a long day of wear. Visit our online store for our product recommendation.
Always hang your suit up in a well-spaced area when you’re not wearing it. And don’t hang it with one of those flimsy metal hangers that will leave hanger divots in the shoulders.
