Happy Birthday to our Manager Kristie Hodges!
Frenzii Blue Dress
Isn’t it funny how a whiff of a special scent can bring back memories of a major event or even something as ordinary as your Granny’s house? The great thing is now you can buy candles in almost any scent to keep reminding you of those memories. The problem is finding candles that actually fill the room with your scent or even last that long! We found the best candles you could ever imagine created! Their called Trapp candles and each candle has an entire bottle of perfume in them…so they are guaranteed to fill your room with the fragrance! We have votives and large 50 hour burning candles available! My favorite is Guava/Mango! Our best seller has been Water and Bamboo Sugar Cane! Bob’s Flower Shoppe has been a contender for that spot as well! We have a special on the votives right now, so come by and treat yourself!

In today’s world of reality t.v. and celebrity exposure it is so much easier to see through all the Hollywood fashion secrets than ever before! Remember years ago when J.Lo wore that green multi low low low loooooowwwww cut dress? Not only did it become front page news, but it also was such a mystery…how in the world did it stay? Well now we all know the many fabulous uses for Fashion Tape! How about the first time Jessica Simpson’s hair went from a cute shoulder length bob to long, sexy locks? Everyone was trying to buy Miracle Grow for their scalp…now 7 out of 10 women have stock in her HairDo clip-ins!
We tend to forget that the celeb’s have a lot of help and their job is to look beautiful 24/7. All their clothes always seem to fit like a glove. The reason being having access to some of the most talented seamstresses alive! Oh and why are all of their girls so perky all the time? Even in their bathing suits?!! Secret: Pick-Me-Up’s….the most amazing breast-lift tape a girl could ask for!
The truth is that it all takes a little bit of extra work, but the pay off ( and the Kodak proof) make it so so worth it! Not only do we offer all these secret’s here at Genealogy but we also love our local seamtresses for being so amazing and affordable, now all of our clothes can looked custom-made…just for you!

When you think of summertime in Savannah what comes to mind?
And I’m not asking you to recall the numerous heat strokes, broken a/c units, obscene amounts of sweat and smelly people, or even just the Gnats. How about the endless hours spent behind horse carriages lugging tourists around, and please just try to forget the traffic on Tybee.
I want you to remember the amazing breezy nights spent on your back porch, sunny days on the golf courses, random day trips to the beaches, you and your favorite book, fun nights in City Market, then the day to follow watching Grease and Dirty Dancing on TBS at least 27 times, and your fabulous summer dress.
You know that one dress…you like the others hanging in your closet, but none compare to that perfect summer dress. It’s become your trustee…it’s been there while you’ve eaten the best molten cake at Chart House, then met those creepy guys at the club, oh yeah and then when you let it fall in love with it’s perfect mate…your shoes. Were they wedges or just a simple flop? Either way, you could never separate them. They formed a utopia-like bond with that dress. The Brad to your Angelina.
Summer dresses become a staple in this Georgia heat. It pains me to foresee a summer without them. I’ve already started stocking up. Nicole Miller, Frenzii, French Connection, Free People, Voom..they all have something to satisfy. We have a big enough selection here at Genealogy to get me thru to the “fall”. Which one will become my perfect 10?
XoXo with Georgia on My Mind and Savannah in my Heart
So a lot of people always ask us…why so much for a pair of jeans? This question breaks my heart into a million little pieces! Let’s see past the price tag and take a trip down Practicality Lane.
There are 3 questions you need ask yourself…
1. Do you sneak a peak at your romp-shaker at least once every two days?
(If you have to turn your head to take a gander, how many people just look ahead and see your J.Lo? And if you have the option wouldn’t you prefer to decorate your behind with a jean that was designed to make it look it’s best?)
2. Do you enjoy being comfortable in your clothing?
(How many times during the day do you wish you could go home, get out of your clothes, throw on your ugly sweats and be done with it? Premium Denim is designed for comfort with the highest quality of denim available…which is often just as soft , if not softer, as your reliable old sweats, not to mention a lot more appealing to your man!)
3) How much money do you spend on food every month?
(Go ahead…add it all up! It hurts doesn’t it? The worst part…you have nothing to show for it! I dare you to spend the same amount on a pair of FABULOUS jeans that you will have and be wearing 3 years later. Much better investment don’t you think?)
Okay so now that I have your attention here is a little something you probably didn’t know about the history of 2 of our premium denim lines. The 2 founder’s of 7 for All Mankind , started their company in 2000…they then brought in a man named Peter for financial reasons and in two years time the original founders of 7 filed a lawsuit against the evil Peter b/c he breached a contract.
The 2 founders then launched Citizens of Humanity in 2003 where they became infamous for they’re universal fit and consistent sizing. Unlike other designer brands, their waistband is not contoured, making it much more accommodating and less likely to produce “plumber’s crack.” Paige Adams -Geller became their fit model and continued to support her when she decided to launch her own line…
So basically if you like 7′s you’ll LOVE Citizens b/c it’s the original designers…and if you LOVE Citizens you’ll be stalking Paige Premium Denim!
XoXo to the moon and back!
Prom season was so wonderful we are sad that it is winding down. We loved helping all of the girls find their perfect prom dresses. Many people have asked, what else do you sell besides prom dresses? I can see how that is a legitimate question since our name is Boutique and Formals. Many people believe that we just sell wedding gowns and prom dresses. This is all very far from the truth. We do not sell wedding gowns at all, and we sell a lot more than just prom dresses and formal wear. Sometimes I wish I had left the “formals” off of the name so that people would not limit us to them because we have so much more.
Our customers constantly amazed at the selection of designer clothing that we have in the store. Top brands such as BCBG Generation, Citizen’s of Hummanity Denim, Paige Premium Denim, SPANX, Nicole Miller, and much more. We literally sell clothing for any occassion weddings, black tie events, The Carolina Cup, or just a day out with your friends shopping.
We also sell Trapp Candles which have become one of our top sellers. Trapp Candles have an entire bottle of perfume per candle and are guaranteed to smell up an entire room with just one votive. They have so many scents and are all wonderful especially our new summer scent Tropical Isle. It just constantly reminds you of great summer times on the beach with friends!
We are constantly getting new clothes and dresses in and will try to update this blog as soon as they hit the racks. You then will start receiving coupons and updates to what events we are having in the store.
we are going to start having cocktail parties, and denim parties in the store really soon. So check back with us for that and check your mailboxes for invitations! Have a wonderful day and come see us in the store soon!
After moving to Pooler, Georgia in February 2007, my husband and I were in search to start a new adventure. We had both previously owned businesses in the past and really felt that Pooler offered us a lot of potential. As a Fashion Merchandising /Retail Major from USC and having owned a bridal and formal wear store before, we decided we were ready to take on the challenge of offering both clothing and formal wear. We really wanted to fit a need for the area so we asked girls from all over Georgia and South Carolina where they got their formal wear? Many said there was nothing in Savannah, while others said they drove an hour or more to find that special dress. We then asked how they felt about having to drive all the way into downtown Savannah just to find designer denim, a cute day dress or special outfit? All replied that they hated the parking and hated having to fight traffic on Abercorn. Gene and I came up with a new concept store that fits all of the needs of ladies from all over the lower part of Georgia and South Carolina and now all over the United States, and we began what became Genealogy Bouitique and Formals. We are dedicated to bringing you the trendiest clothing, designer denim, and accessories that there is too offer. We also guarantee to have a formal wear or prom dress that will make you look beautiful and feel like a million dollars for your special night.
As for the name… Long story but we felt that the name Genealogy suited our store because we want you to always feel good about yourself and who you are. We are here for the long haul and we want generations to come to find themselves bringing in their daughters to find that special outfit or special dress just like they did! As our slogan goes…. Always look good in your GENES!! BE WHO YOU ARE and love yourself because it is in your GENES!
