Charm bracelets can tell truly charming stories about your life, your interests, and your dreams. That’s why we’re so excited for Sunday! Sunday February 26th is Tell a Fairy Tale Day. What can you do to make this magical holiday even more special? Tell a Fairy Tale Day is a great opportunity to sit down and read to your kids. But if the kids aren’t around… there’s nothing wrong with reading some fairy tales on your own! Everybody loves a good story with a happy ending. (The Knight in Shining Armor doesn’t hurt, either!)
And that’s the thing… Tell a Fairy Tale Day is important because it reminds us that even the most upsetting situations can always come to a happy ending. There’s nothing better than a good story that ends with the words, “…and they lived happily ever after.” On Tell a Fairy Tale Day, take a look at the charm bracelet that tells your personal story. There may have been some bumps along the road, but all of the charms on your bracelet represent something that makes you truly unique!
Is there a woman in your life that inspires you to tell a story? While you’re thinking about happy endings on Tell a Fairy Tale Day, keep our Inspirational Women contest in mind! Tell us a story about an inspiring woman, and you could win up to $150 worth of charms from Classic Charms.
Start telling those stories, charmers! Every woman has her own unique fairy tale to tell—and charm bracelets can help paint a truly “happily ever after” picture.
Here at Classic Charms, we love hearing about the stories that inspire your life. After all, the perfect charm bracelet is the perfect way to show the world where you’ve been and what makes you who you are. That’s why we’re going to celebrate International Women’s Day in style. International Women’s Day is March 8th, and it’s a day to celebrate and honor the great strides that women have made over the past century. As women, we’ve really come quite a long way! In the past 100 years, we’ve gotten the right to vote, and more and more of us are becoming powerful players in the business world—all while maintaining the home front. In celebration of the wonder that is “woman,” we invite you to share the story of a woman that truly inspires you.
Classic Charms International Women’s Day Story Contest
Tell us a story about a woman who is inspiring—this can be you or someone else. Women can do amazing things, and we want to hear about it! We believe that charms can tell any story, so use charms from our site (give us the item numbers, please!) to enhance your storytelling. If we think your story is the most inspiring, you’ll win a charm bracelet and the charms that you used to tell your story—up to a $150 value!

We can’t wait to see what good ol’ Punxsutawney Phil has to say tomorrow morning! According to legend, if it’s cloudy when he leaves his burrow on that day, it’s a signal that the winter-like weather will soon end. If it’s a sunny day, he sees his shadow, retreats back to his burrow, and the winter is said to continue for six more weeks. Here at Classic Charms, we’re not exactly sure how good a big rodent is at meteorology… but who are we to argue with tradition? In fact, we think it’s kind of sweet.
The biggest Groundhog Day celebration is held in Punxsutawney, PA, where the crowd can sometimes be as large as 40,000. The University of Dallas in Irving, TX actually has taken Groundhog Day as its official university holiday. They have a huge celebration each year to honor the Groundhog.
What can we do to help honor the Groundhog this year? Well, keep your eye to the sky tomorrow morning when Punxsutawney Phil makes his prediction. If there’s supposed to be six more weeks of winter, you’ll get FREE SHIPPING from Classic Charms. But if we’re expecting an early spring, you’ll get a FREE BEAD from our grab bag. Either way, you come out a winner! With gorgeous Rembrandt charms and charming accessories to choose from, you’re sure to find something precious at Classic Charms. You just have to enter the code “FEB2” at checkout once the Groundhog makes his prediction tomorrow morning.
What are you hoping for?
