When was the last time you spoiled yourself with a ladies night out? Here at West Coast Cowgirl we are all about making you feel special, whether it’s through wearing beautiful jewelry or treating yourself with a new handbag. There are also many other fun and creative ways to pamper yourself. Check out the ideas below and begin planning your next Ladies Night out today.
Grab the fondue pot out of the back of your cupboard and enjoy dipping and eating the night away. There are several fondue recipes you can find on Pinterest. You can also come up with your own ideas such as fruit and white chocolate, pretzels and dark chocolate, or cubed bread and cheese.
Even if you didn’t live through the 80’s you can still enjoy them! Dress up in your favorite bright pink clothes and bold color styles. Rat your hair, wear those large hoop earrings, and place your favorite bangle bracelets on your wrists. Now you’re ready for a night of dancing and cocktails.
Paint & Sip Party
Have you heard of these painting parties? They seem to be all over the place these days. Everyone gathers at one person’s home and they enjoy a relaxing night of painting and sipping wine. Gather supplies, or have each lady bring a set of their own supplies, open a bottle of bubbly and enjoy the evening.
This is a more traditional ladies night but still an old favorite. You can choose a theme or simply have different options available like a foot bath, face masks, and hand scrubs.
The possibilities are endless with this theme. Choose a romantic comedy, spooky horror, or action/adventure. Grab a few bags of popcorn, pour your favorite soda, and relax in front of the TV.
Cupcake Decorating Bar
Who doesn’t enjoy a sweet treat? Set up your own cupcake bar. Bake a couple dozen cupcakes a few days ahead of the event. Each lady can bring their favorite cake topping - frosting, chocolate candies, sprinkles, crushed pretzels, gummy candy, and the like. Divide the cupcakes out among the ladies and begin creating.
Which ladies night out would you enjoy the best?

Here at West Coast Cowgirl we pride ourselves in the diversity and variety of our Western-inspired jewelry selections. And while not every traditional monthly birthstone is a frequent visitor to our inventory, one stand-out monthly spotlight certainly is: The pearl! Pearls are the classic, time-honored "birthstone" for people born during the month of June, and they happen to also be a huge trend for Spring/Summer 2017's jewelry designs. We wanted to take this opportunity to shine the spotlight on the lustrous, elegant, classic beauty of pearl jewelry, and to recommend some of our favorite pieces for new additions to your wardrobe OR for gifts to the June-born people in your life!
Our Remy Pearl Choker was featured in a previous blog post about Spring 2017 jewelry trends, and it remains a favorite here at West Coast Cowgirl. This stunning, chic necklace is offered in the highly desirable choker style, with a Boho design that utilizes saddle leather strands with freshwater pearls and ornate knotted details. It's a versatile accessory that is perfect for summer days and getaways, and it is a lovely choice for a jewelry lover whose birthday is in June!
Another popular accessory for the warm summer months is a stylish headband. Our Zoey Headband features bead and pearl embellishments over a dark, elastic band, making it an eye-catching blend of jewelry and function. Whether you wear it in a Boho style across your forehead, or go for a more classic look by wearing it in your hair, this charming headband won't slide around while it glistens and sparkles in the sunlight!
If you, or the recipient on your shopping lists, favor a vintage look, West Coast Cowgirl's Baby Doll Choker is a remarkable blend of the timeless aesthetic of delicate floral chokers blended with the summery, understated beauty of a pearl charm. The cameo design further enhances the vintage appeal of this piece, and its soft, romantic look makes it a perfect choice for a dressy event or a formal affair.
Our Expecting to Fly necklace in the Color choice Pearl is a stunning, earthy example of Western charm for any wardrobe. Featuring a 2" pendant feather embellished with a pearl set (or turquoise, if you prefer), this necklace has an 18" chain, making it ideal for layering with other pieces. The whimsical, airy design makes it a natural choice for the summer months, and the subtle, playful pearl setting can be combined with other pearl accessories with ease.
According to an old Greek Legend, pearls are hardened tears of joy from the goddess Aphrodite. Aphrodite was believed to be the goddess of love, and so pearls have long been associated with romance, weddings, and happiness. There is another old superstition that states that pearls, when worn, help to calm a restless mind and control anger, while promoting creative inspiration! Without a doubt, there is a host of lore and beliefs surrounding traditional monthly birthstones, but no one can contest that pearls are a beautiful, timeless addition to any jewelry collection. At West Coast Cowgirl we hope that our suggestions find you happy, healthy, and excited for the summer months!
With spring in full swing and summer rapidly approaching that means we’re all entering another exciting time of year: Graduation Days!

Shopping for jewelry can be a daunting task for anyone, even shoppers that are confident they know their recipient’s style. This “Graduation Season,” please consider these charming, elegant jewelry suggestions that are chic enough to shine in any jewelry collection, without being too bold or trendy to be gift-friendly choices!

These lovely earrings conjure up images of summer at the beach, making them an excellent choice for a graduation day party before the hot months arrive!
West Coast Cowgirl’s collection of understated, chic jewelry choices is rarely represented more perfectly than by our Rocky Mountain Beauty Ring. This resizable ring doesn’t even require a specific size, and the choice of copper, gold, or silver plated styles lend beautifully to a wide range of tastes. This ring evokes images of the beautiful Rocky Mountains with its delicate mountain motif, and also works wonderfully in multiples or alone.
A wish for good fortune and luck is a fun theme for a gift, and it’s a sentiment that’s very appropriate for a new graduate as they prepare to embark upon a new life chapter.
