Did you know that Belk - your destination for “modern Southern style” – turns 125 this year (on May 29)? How fabulous is that? And the family-owned retailer is ready to celebrate in a very big way, which means great things for its customers and the community at large.

I had the privilege of attending Belk’s Media breakfast yesterday, where I was seated right next to President and COO Mr. Johnny Belk himself! Mr. Belk spoke candidly about the plans to celebrate this special anniversary by opening more flagship stores, expanding private labels like Cynthia/Cynthia Rowley and Cam Newton, and continuing their commitment to community service by giving back to the local communities through “125 Days of Service,” its $2 million dollar commitment with the Points of Light Institute.

Mr. Belk also shared with us that Belk has major plans to improve the store’s online and in-store shopping experience to meet the demands of customers who are shopping in a variety of ways.

And if you’re shopping with Belk you’re going to love the exclusive products Belk will have available from designers such as Michael Kors and Jessica Simpson, as well as 125 Days of Prizes, during which time Belk will award a prize valued from $500-$6,500 every day March 10- July 12! Customers can register on Belk’s Facebook page or on belk125prizes.com. And yes, there’s more: designers like Cynthia Rowley and the Southern Design Showcase winners (whose collections will be featured online and in stores) will make appearances at in-store events…and there’s also a Belk Barbie available in stores (coming soon online)!

Stay tuned for more details regarding Belk’s 125th anniversary and be sure to get in on the celebration

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Former Auburn football standout, Heisman Trophy winner and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has a new clothing line at Belk that will launch this month.
Johnny Belk, the company's president and chief operating officer, talked about Newton's new private label, MADE, during a visit to Birmingham this morning.

The sportswear line is fashion forward, Belk said, but also affordable.

"A vast majority of our customer base will feel comfortable buying it," he said.

Belk also is launching a new private label by designer Cynthia Rowley, which will include sportswear, dresses and jewelry.

Belk's visit to Birmingham was part of the company's 125th anniversary celebration that will roll out at its stores over the next few months.

Upcoming changes for the retailer in the Birmingham area include a plan to renovate its Riverchase Galleria store so it meets the full standard of a flagship location.

Belk Launches Exclusive New Collection - Cynthia by Cynthia Rowley - Williamson Source

Belk Launches Exclusive New Collection - Cynthia by Cynthia Rowley - Williamson Source | Belk, Inc. Modern. Southern. Style. | Scoop.it
Panorama Public Relations/Life & Style's insight:

Belk has launched an exclusive new collection. Cynthia, by Cynthia Rowley is available in stores now! This marks the third special collection Belk has distributed, with its Sophie Max by Leon Max collection.

“Even though Cynthia is not from the South, we like her style aesthetic. Color, print and florals are very dominant,” said Kathryn Bufano, Belk president and chief merchandising officer in a recent interview. “There’s a very feminine twist and dresses are a big piece of her collection.”

Cynthia by Cynthia Rowley will be launched in 149 Belk stores, close to half of the chain. The line will include apparel, handbags, jewelry, scarves, accessories and small leather goods, priced from $80 to $200.

I have found this collection colorful and bright, with fluid designs that are easy to wear. The floral jacket fits like a glove, and you can pair it with a striped tee for an up to the minute look. Hurry, this collection is limited in quantity. The pieces will be hard to come by, but your look will be uniquely you!

Belk Inc. is planning to spend millions to renovate its Riverchase Galleria store into a flagship location, a company executive announced today.
President and Chief Operating Officer Johnny Belk, speaking after a press conference earlier today, told me the company has committed "several million dollars" to the redevelopment.
The store upgrade will further boost the total investment being poured into Alabama's largest indoor mall, including the opening of a new Von Maur department store.
The investment isn't the only one planned for Alabama, he continued. Belk recently made a $20 million investment in Huntsville, and the company is also celebrating its 125-year anniversary with a $2 million charity initiative, "125 Days of Caring," with the Points of Light organization to help help at-risk schools.

We’ve been fans of North Carolina-based clothing line Southern Frock, and its owner/designer Emily Newnam (pictured below), since the label debuted in 2010. Since that time their flirty cotton dresses have appeared in Southern Living on more than one occasion, most recently in our January 2013 issue.  We are, therefore, beyond excited that starting this week select looks from Southern Frock’s spring collection will be stocked at Belk department stores. That’s right, there alongside dresses from the likes of Trina Turk, Lilly Pulitzer and Michael Kors will be designs from a company with true Southern roots.

Emily Newnam | Photo Courtesy of southernfrock.com

Southern Frock’s Belk-debut is part the department store’s inaugural Southern Designer Showcase. Last year, the Charlotte-headquartered retailer went on a hunt for the South’s most talented fashion and accessories designers to spotlight in its 300-plus stores, which span from Texas to Maryland.  In their push to highlight the style renaissance taking place right here in our region, the 125-year  old store has given Southern designers a sizable platform to expose their work. Yep, Belk has made it their mission to show that Southern style is on par with the work coming from New York and L.A. (We love that.)

Nearly 200 apparel and accessories lines applied, but only a select 15 were chosen for the final Southern Designer Showcase. As with Southern Frock, the other 14 lines will have select items from their Spring 2013 collections available to purchase in Belk brick and mortar stores as well as online through April.

Here are a few of the other Southern labels were excited to check-out in stores:

 

Faith Thornburg, Savannah, Georgia. This SCAD graduate specializes in ethereal, bespoke wedding gowns. For a listing of her Belk trunk shows visit here. By the way, when we say trunk show we mean she’ll actually sketch a one-of-a-kind wedding dress for you there on the spot.

Growing up in Indianapolis, Indiana, Faith Thornburg has truly worked hard to be where she is today. Faith graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design
Panorama Public Relations/Life & Style's insight:

Growing up in Indianapolis, Indiana, Faith Thornburg has truly worked hard to be where she is today. Faith graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a BFA in Fashion. Focusing on designing bridal wear, Faith has worked with other fashion designers such as Anne Barge and has received advice from industry legends like Andre Leon Talley and Manolo Blahnik.

 

Faith’s big break came in 2011, when she was selected by Elle Magazine to show her collection at the Lincoln Center during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City. A judging panel made up of industry professionals and Elle’s own fashion experts chose one finalist’s collection and awarded them with a $25,000 grant: that finalist was Faith. Her designs were then featured in the December 2011 issue of Elle as well as on elle.com.

 

Her hard work paid off once again, when she won the Belk Southern Designers contest in 2012. That same year, she also debuted her collection at Charleston Fashion Week on the finale night. The audience fell in love with Faith’s take on “ethereal and modern bridal wear” and celebrities like Fern Mallis and Vanessa Lachey sat front row for the show.

 

This Sunday, February 24th, Faith will be holding a bridal trunk show at Belk’s Summit location. She will meet with customers, discuss their dream wedding dress and sketch her ideas of each dress in store. Based on the brides dream and Faith’s sketch, she will create a custom wedding gown that the bride will be able to pick up at their local Belk store once completed.

 

If you’ve dreamed of having a custom-made, designer wedding gown but thought it was only something the rich and famous could have, then come out to Belk at the Summit this Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and make your dreams come true.
