St Jude Gift Shop – Shop A Little, Save A Life
The St Jude Gift Shop lets you shop a little and save a life. We shop there every year when we go for the marathon weekend. As you can see in the picture, there are quite a few folks from South Louisiana that make the trip to Memphis every year for marathon.
Even though we are there to run and eat barbeque, our first stop is always the St Jude Gift Shop. The store is located on the campus of the hospital and features many wonderful items from top of the line manufacturers and brands. Many of these designer items are created especially to support the mission of St Jude. You can view the entire online catalog here.
Here are some of my favorite St Jude items;
T-Shirts! I loves the selection of St Jude shirts the gift shop offers. You can get casual comfortable shirts and even shirts from the St Jude Marathon Weekend. Runners and walkers you will be pleased to know many of these items are available in the high tech material that wicks the sweat off your body during a workout. I probably have 2 dozen St Jude shirts and I can tell you personally the quality is amazing and they are very durable. I know I wear a St Jude shirt just about everday.
Gifts For Girls: My wife Jill along with Krista from the show and Tracy Wirtz from KATC's Good Morning Acadiana love the ladies section in the gift shop and online. The girls have found designer hand bags, great looking casual shirts, hoodies, cover-ups and even some very special jewelry too. Ladies you've got to take a look at what the gift shop has just for you!
Ornaments: What says more about the spirit of Christmas than the message of HOPE that St Jude provides all year long. The gift shop has many great ornament ideas so no matter what your style of Christmas decoration happens to be you can find something that will look good in your home, on your dream and will always remind you of the life saving work that St Jude does for families all year long.
The Sale Rack: Who doesn't love a sale? This section of the online gift shop and the in person gift shop is always a favorite for shoppers. This is where you will find everything from scrapbooks and picture frames to sweatshirts, caps and baby items too. There are always new items going on the sale rack and even though you might be saving a few dollars you can rest assured the the St Jude is getting the full benefit of your purchase.
I hope you will take a moment to shop the St Jude Gift shop online and if you are ever in Memphis be sure to ask the security guard at the gate if you can pop in and do some shopping. I also hope you will become a Partner in Hope with St Jude and 97.3 The Dawg during our Country Cares St Jude Radiothon Thursday and Friday.
