Shop—And Feel Good About It
Part boutique, part gift shop, the Pink Turtle is all about helping kids.
“We take pride in the times when customers come in and find the absolute perfect gift,” says Carey Pauley of The Pink Turtle—but she also takes pride in giving back.
In 2009 Pauley lost her young daughter, Savannah, to cancer. That loss inspired Pauley to open The Pink Turtle in Greenville and donate proceeds from sales to local nonprofits for children. It also inspired the SavannahStrong line of wristbands, water bottles, beach towels, stickers and T-shirts.
Other merchandise at The Pink Turtle varies from four lines of home decor to monogrammed handbags and personalized stationery. Popular fashion items range from custom tote bags to distinctive jewelry to unique accessories. “We just got in these adorable cowboy rain boots that I have never seen anywhere before,” Pauley says.
Every month The Pink Turtle selects a new charity to support. Past charities have included the local B+ Foundation and Kids Kicking for Cancer. Though Pauley wants every customer to have fun while shopping, her true pride doesn’t come from buying the perfect gift, but giving the gift of life to children like Savannah. —Rebecca Kasman
