We’re celebrating Father’s Day with a special Shop the South just for the fellas! My father was a charming bon vivant and entrepreneur to the core, and one of the most naturally giving people I've ever known. He loved me and my brothers unconditionally, and he made sure we felt it. I dedicate this Gift Guide to my dad, to my darling husband and father of our three kids, and to all the fathers and future fathers out there. Enjoy your special day and know how very much you are loved!

A fresh start to the new year requires a little feathering of the nest. In this edition of Shop the South with SUTHINGIRL, we’ve gathered a thoughtful collection of everything you’ll need: from yoga pants, paperie, and a briefcase to bedding, bath products, and more—all made in the South.
Who is Suthingirl?
My name is Ashley Stamoulis and I'm a SuthinGirl.
Born under moss-draped live oaks in Savannah and raised on a lowcountry island surrounded by azaleas and saltwater marshes, I grew up at the heels of three generations of colorful, charismatic entrepreneurs.
A diploma from the University of Georgia in hand, I answered the siren's call of the big city and moved to Atlanta to pursue a Masters of Communications and embark upon an adventure in public relations, working with some of Atlanta's most recognizable brands. My next leap was Ashley Sparks Communications, a marketing and events company serving clients across the country.
Three kids and two decades later, I've come full circle to my family roots, promoting southern makers and entrepreneurs through SUTHINGIRL, one of the South's most celebrated lifestyle brands, and the SUTHINSTYLE BOX, a seasonal selection of southern style featuring today's top southern makers and brands.
Our mission at SUTHINGIRL is to celebrate the southern lifestyle, serve as the premier resource to Shop the South®, nurture and grow southern brands, and give back. "In the South, all our backyards touch." This is one of my favorite southern expressions and inspired our LOOK GOOD + FEEL GOOD® campaign. We joyfully give 20% of our profits back to nonprofit organizations on behalf of the amazing SuthinGirls who shop our site.
In August of 2018, I became Special Section Editor of Shop the South with SUTHINGIRL, a shopping and lifestyle feature in Good Grit Magazine. I'm thrilled to represent Saks Fifth Avenue as their official Atlanta Lifestyle Influencer and honored to serve Camp Twin Lakes Partners Card as creator and leader of their Lifestyle Influencer Campaign. I'm a founding board member of Education Cures, a member of the board of Doggies on the Catwalk and an advisor to the nsoro Foundation. I believe it's always a good idea to throw a party, and delight in hosting the most elegant (and downright fun) fundraising events for SCAD, Canine Assistants and others throughout the South.
I found my four leaf clover girls, and I married him! Dean and I make our home in Buckhead and enjoy every minute of life with our three teenagers and one chatty calico cat. SUTHINGIRL is a true family affair!
