Cathy Haney is excited about the selection of team spirit items available at Surceé.
“Let’s Go, Pokes!” “Boomer Sooner!” “Go Rams!” The cheers have already begun across Oklahoma! There is nothing like football season in our great state and nothing Oklahomans enjoy more than showing off their team spirit.
Surceé Home Décor and Gifts, located at 9455 Owasso Expy. in Owasso, is stocked with everything needed to throw the perfect tailgate party, dress up a dorm room with college pizzazz, or show off your favorite team with everything from a blinged out tee to a stylish sweater vest. Shelves are filled with scarves, bags, vintage coasters, and more jewelry than you could possibly wear at one time.
“We love this time of year,” says Laura Sanders, owner of Surceé. “It is so much fun seeing the excitement on our customers’ faces as they see all the fun and unique college and high school items we have brought in. Honestly, most are speechless when they see our selection. We have serving pieces, vintage coasters, picture frames, tumblers, wall hangings, canvas prints and banners for your walls, dresses, chiffon blouses and a lot more.”
Laura has dozens of T-shirt designs emblazoned with the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University and the local favorite, the Owasso Rams. Make sure you plan for follow-up visits to the store too. “Currently our stock includes warmer temperature items but I have some great surprises arriving soon that will be more weather appropriate when it cools down. Looking good while cheering for your favorite team has never been easier!”
Surceé is excited to welcome shoppers for their annual Fall Open House. Held September 5-7, it marks the beginning of fall and ushers in the upcoming holiday season. A long-time Owasso tradition, this is one event you don’t want to miss. Kicking off the festivities is the always popular “Girls Night” on September 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Completely transforming each area of the shop takes time and effort, but “oohs and ahhs” from customers is what keeps them doing it every year. Giveaways, door prizes, tasty and mouthwatering fall treats and tempting sangrias all add up to one incredible night out.
“Our Fall Open House is where we unveil our Halloween décor and this year, our selection tops everything we have ever done. Vintage decorations have become extremely popular so we will showcase an assortment sure to please all tastes,” says Laura. Vintage items have become a mainstay at Surceé since retro décor has seen a resurgence in popularity.
As if all the incredible products are not enough, excellent service is another reason for customers to keep coming back. Cathy Haney is just one of the employees greeting customers and making sure each shopping experience is unforgettable. Cathy has worked at Surceé for nine years, starting out at their 86th Street North location and then transitioning to the new store. She is their “in store” Brighton expert and says that her personal favorite product is anything from the Lollia bath line. “I just love that the packaging is so feminine and they use all types of floral scents,” Cathy explains. “And they are listed on Oprah’s Favorites List.”
An Owasso resident for 24 years, Cathy states that her favorite thing about working at Surceé is the fun she has decorating for the fall, but especially for Christmas. “I just love showing different ways to make my customers’ homes warm and inviting! This time of year is always focused on families and traditions,” she explains. “It is very satisfying helping others make their holiday season memorable.”
