Cayman's is older than me; Room to Dream is not

By Jenny Coon Peterson September 14th, 2010
I had a shock the other day. There I was, happily watching a television show when " bam! " a huge stick branded with the phrase "you're getting old" came out of nowhere and knocked me in the head.

The adult character in the show was heading to her high school reunion. And not just any reunion, but one for the Class of 2000. Wait a second: That's the year I graduated. What is an adult character who has an adult job and adult responsibilities doing at a Class of 2000 reunion? It used to be " back when I wasn't old and being accosted by this fact on TV " that the "adults" were always older than. Not any more, apparently.

But there are still a few things that have more years behind them than me. And one of them is a fabulous Norman store.

Cayman's is celebrating its 30th anniversary. If you've never been to Cayman's, 2001 W. Main in Norman, now is the time to check it out. The shop stocks really great men's, women's and children's clothing; unique jewelry; beauty lines; and even home decor in a large, upscale department store-style space.

To celebrate, Cayman's is hosting a variety of events Sept. 15 and 16. On the 15th, things kick off with a style show and luncheon. The luncheon starts at 11:30 a.m., with the show to follow, and reservations are required. Call 360-3969 to reserve your spot.

An all-day open house on the 15th will welcome representatives from Creed fragrances, jewelry lines Zasha and Be-Je, and home decor lines Juliska and Michael Aram. The fun continues the next day with representatives from Vineyard Vines for men and Michael Kors watches.

Congrats! I say owner Shelley Coleman Cox should gift herself with a big, glossy pearl (or a diamond if she follows the more modern anniversary gifting rules).

You know who's not older than me " who's not even yet a teenager? That'd be Room to Dream in Northpark Mall. But a decade in the retail business is a long time " and Room to Dream has not only survived, but thrived, with a recently expanded store in the shopping center.

Room to Dream, which is owned by Debbie Francis, stocks really wonderful gear, decor, accessories and more for babies and their stylish mamas. To honor a decade, the store will run a month-long celebration, including a kid's photographer, prizes and even a birthday party.

The really cool thing, however, is a fundraiser for Infant Crisis Services. For the entire month of September, shoppers who bring in unopened formula or diapers gets a 10 percent discount on their purchases that day. How cool is that! 

Congrats to both stores, and here's to another decade or three.
