Grab the girls and head to the Savannah Convention Center for the return of the Southern Women’s Show Savannah.
From March 29 to 31, the event features giveaways, beauty makeovers, shopping, sampling, cooking demos, cocktails and the crowd-favorite Firefighter Fashion Show.
Some of this year’s highlights include Girls Night Out, presented by Ketel One and Baileys, on March 29, and you can stop by their exhibit for daily complimentary tastings throughout the weekend. Southern Biscuit will present Mother-Daughter Day on Sunday with free samples and gifts and guests can also enjoy a cupcake decorating contest with Gigi’s Cupcakes that same day.
Guests can also shop Southern goods, learn how to make DYI items, meet restaurateur and lifestyle personality Rosalynn Daniels, pick-your-prize bingo, listen to Southern Belle Medium Tamara Caulder Richardson, win show bucks from Georgia Lottery and experience all-natural therapies from IV Parlour, and more. There is also a workshop area for kids sponsored by Home Depot. And that’s just some of the events going on that weekend.
And one of the main events for the Southern Women’s Show is this year’s celebrity guest, Savannah Chrisley from USA’s hit reality show, “Chrisley Knows Best.”
At 19, the Georgia native became the youngest person to retail on HSN with her fashion line Faith Over Fear. She is also known as a former pageant queen and developed her own fragrance and cosmetic collection. When she's not filming, Chrisley uses her celebrity status to be an outspoken advocate for women. Guests will have a chance to meet and hear from Chrisley at 2 p.m. March 31 on the Fashion and Entertainment Stage. Super fans can purchase the Meet & Greet Package for her appearance for $35 which includes the meet and greet, one ticket to the Southern Women's Show, a SWS reusable shopping bag and reserved seating at the Fashion & Entertainment Stage for her appearance. There is limited availability for that event and tickets are almost sold-out.
Ahead of making her Savannah appearance, Chrisley spoke with DO Savannah about her connection to Savannah, why she enjoys the Southern Women’s Show and how she navigates her social media presence.
Do: Hello, Savannah! You're making your way to Savannah soon. I would guess you're named after our beautiful city, maybe?
Chrisley: “Yes, I actually was named after Savannah! Mom and dad went on a date there and loved it.”
Do: What are you looking forward to doing while you're here?
Chrisley: “Savannah is one of the most charming cities I have ever been to. It's very calming for me and the food is to die for!!”
Do: You’re coming to town for the Southern Women's Show. What does “Southern women" mean to you and what will you talk about during your presentation?
Chrisley: ”The Southern Women's shows have been an amazing way for me to be vulnerable and use my life stories to help others. God blessed me with a platform to help others and that's what I hope to accomplish. So, I will be talking about personal failures and success. If I can talk about my hardships and adversities and help others, then I am willing to do it.”
Do: You are so open with your life on “Chrisley Knows Best.” What advice do you have for young women about sharing their lives in the public eye and on social media?
Chrisley: “Social media is there for life. Whenever I post something, I ask myself, ‘would I be OK with my future daughter seeing this?’ I personally think it comes down to knowing your worth and what you deserve out of life. If you are confident in yourself, then you will carry yourself in a confident manner and your actions will show it.”
