Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items for the Week

It’s not quite beach weather yet, but with what Mother Nature put us through this winter, we can’t help but dream about all the outdoor activities we have planned for this summer. As we page through the Lakeside Collection catalog, here are our favorite items for the week.


Wear this 3-Pair Barefoot Jewelry Set anywhere your bare feet go! The set features anklets with glass beads in different colors that will sparkle in the sunlight. Stretches to fit around your ankle and toe.


Solar Animal Repeller is the humane way to stop pests from damaging your yard, garden or property. It eliminates the need for cruel traps and poisons, plus it’s easy to install. Just stake it in the ground and it charges in sunlight to activate a built-in infrared motion detector. When pests come within its 20-foot detection range, it triggers powerful, ultrasonic waves that turn animals away. It only activates when motion is detected, so it can run around the clock when charged. Stake it in your lawn, near your garbage cans or near any spot where animals cause destruction.


Renew your spirit with this inspiring wall art by Marla Rae that reminds us, Today Is a New Day! Wooden box-frame artwork has an antiqued look balanced with contemporary fonts and a variety of colors. The array of uplifting messages will leave you feeling good each time you look at it.


Enjoy a break from your hectic life and relax in our Swinging Chair Hammock. Hang it from a tree or on a stand (not included). Made of cotton canvas, it’s held up by ropes on a wood frame. Features a foam-cushioned seat and back for extra comfort.


Show that faith is eternal with this Antiqued Metal Garden Angel. The sculpture features a weathered finish that creates a timeless look in your garden. Detailed wings and a star wand highlight the top, while the bottom has an open lattice design that lets your plants and flowers show through.

Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items for the Week

wine glasses frostedToday’s post is our weekly roundup, which is always fun because that means it is Friday! We think weekends should be enjoyed in their entirety, so we’ve decided to compile a list of items that will help you make the most of your weekend. We all see different things when we look to the weekend; some of us can’t wait for Friday afternoon happy hour, while others are planning a date with their couch and a good book, and still others have big plans for 18-mile marathon training runs. Whatever kind of weekend you’ve got planned, here are a few items to make it awesome.

Frosted Stemless Wine Glasses

Let’s be honest here for a second, the number one best thing about Friday is the wine that normally comes along with it. Whether you’re enjoying happy hour with your coworkers or enjoying a few glasses of wine at home with your spouse, Friday and wine go hand in hand. Which is why we think every home deserves a set of these great Frosted Stemless Wine Glasses! With fun phrases like, “Conserve water, drink wine,” you will get a kick out of these trendy fun additions to your home bar.

 Garage Grip Area Mat

We know plenty of you men (and women) like to spend your weekends tucked away in the garage on solitary projects for your home. Unfortunately, shed, garage, and man-cave concrete floors are hard on your back, legs, and feet, requiring breaks and causing fatigue. If you’re a big fan of do-it-yourself projects, then invest in this great grip area mat for your garage, workshop, or shed and never worry about those aches and pains again! This nonstick mat is also grease and oil resistant so you can get some of those house and auto projects done! Take this weekend to teach your kids a thing or two about cars, or show your teens how to safely use power tools.

Divided Food Storage Containers

It’s picnic time! It is March, and lots of you are experiencing your first warm-weather days of the year. Take advantage of the sun with a little hike and outdoor picnic. Work up a sweat to stay comfortable, and then enjoy fresh fruit, salad, and sandwiches from these great divided food storage containers. Check out some fun walks and hikes in your area and go enjoy the great outdoors! You can pack up the kids and the dog and enjoy a fun and relaxing afternoon hike with a break for healthy picnic snacks!

Active Wear

For some people, weekends mean more time to exercise, enjoy the weather, and train for a Marathon, Triathlon, or Couch-to-5K program! We all know it’s a great idea to get moving on the weekends, which is why we love these plus-size sporty coordinates and women’s active wear leggings. Run in style, and really earn Sunday’s endless mimosa brunch with these great apparel items.

Instant Spouts

In addition to training runs and brunches, Sundays are for cooking and baking. Whether you’re busting out the slow cooker for your weekly meals or not, we still think you should spend a little time whipping up a few muffins or cupcakes for a fun and delicious treat. We love these silicone instant spouts for making cakes, muffins, brownies, pancakes, and waffles without making such a mess. No need to drip all over the counter or get endless ice cream scoopers dirty, just attach the spout and pour the batter. Now you can go enjoy a book on the couch while your goodies bake away!

Pinteresting Picks for February

Out with February and in with March! Another month is upon us, and it’s time for our monthly pin round up. The majority of our pinners are more than ready to put the cold days in the past, and we’re all looking forward to springtime activities, eating lighter, and planning our gardens. Here’s a quick list of pins that everyone loved in February.

Whimsical Boot Planters

Spring is fewer than three weeks away, which means garden season is right around the corner! Before you know it you’ll have gigantic zucchini squash and beautiful herbs and tomatoes popping up in your garden. What garden is complete without a few fun accessories? We’d say that’s why these whimsical boot planters were popular last month, and just look at how cute they are! Every garden deserves a little aesthetic facelift, and these great ladybug boot planters are a great way to bring a little nature inside your home while you wait out the rest of winter.

Ceramic Chip N’ Dip Bowls

Families everywhere are trying to avoid cabin fever with their little ones, and we’re all looking forward to more time outside. This fun giant chalk pencil is perfect for creative kids who like to doodle, and it even comes with its own sharpener! If you’ve got kids, or even if you babysit your nieces and nephews, this is a great way to keep them entertained. There are three different colors of chalk, which are loaded into the jumbo pencil for a fun afternoon on the sidewalk. This giant chalk pencil is a great way to keep your kids entertained on springtime afternoons; stock up and prepare your arsenal of fun outdoor activities while you wait out the last couple of weeks of winter.

Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items For The Week

fleece footed men

It’s Friday, but it’s also the very last day of February. It’s hard to believe we’re already two full months into January, but here we are! Even though spring is just a few weeks away, many of us across the country are still looking at another week or more of sleet, snow, and ice! We’ve decided to highlight some of our sale items that will keep you cozy and comfortable as you wait out the rest of this crazy winter!

Microfleece Sheet Sets

The last thing you want to do during cold winter days is, well, anything! So we say snuggle up with these soft microfleece sheets with your little ones and enjoy a little warm relaxation in bed. You’ll never have to worry about freezing while you try to sleep, and you can even lower your heating bill by turning down the heater during the night. And, if the power goes out and you’re house is running on a generator, at least you’ll have these sheets to help keep you warm!


Women’s Boatneck Poncho Sweater

We love this cozy boat-neck poncho sweater for indoor and outdoor use. It’s perfect for those extra-cold days that don’t seem to be going away anytime soon! This is a great fashionable poncho that can be worn to work, over workout clothes, or while lounging around the house watching movies with the kids. Everyone needs a loose, soft, warm sweater for daily use!

Women’s Fun Print Slippers

These bootie slippers are great for indoor wear, as well as running outside to grab the mail or bring in the trashcan. The insoles are super soft, keeping your feet warm and cozy as you wait out this endless winter! Made from polyester with rubber soles, they’re sure to last more than one season, and make the perfect colorful addition to any at-home lounging. Check out the great colors, patterns, and pom-poms!

Men’s Fleece Footed Pajamas

When footie pajamas first came back on the scene – for adults, not just kids – there were skeptics, there was laughter, but then, there was a whole lot of warmth. Now footie pajamas are mainstream comfort, and keep adults and kids happy all around the year! We love these NFL men’s footie pajamas for wintery days and nights, and especially for stepping outside to put the kids on the bus or grab the mail. You can even wear these super-warm footie pajamas under your snow coats, pants, and boots to stay extra-warm while you shovel snow!

Lakeside Selection: Our Choice of Favorite Items for the Week

minnie mickey kissHere at The Lakeside Collection we’ve been busy with office Olympics, but we still make time for the holiday of love! We hope that you’ve already stocked up on jewelry, wine, chocolates, flowers, beer, and anything else you need to make today or tonight a huge success for you and yours. We’re highlighting our favorite fun Valentine’s Day gift items in honor of the holiday. Here are some of the items we’re gifting to our loved ones today.

Disney Salt & Pepper Shakers

This is such an adorable gift; everyone will love these cute Disney salt and pepper shakers. Although they’re meant for the kitchen or dining room table, you can also gift them to kids to play with or fill with glitter. We love having these happy little Disney characters on the table, and since they’re not your standard salt and pepper shakers, you never get confused about which is salt and which is pepper. We will definitely be dining with these adorable little shakers this evening. They’re a perfect pair for sweet and sentimental cards, or fun and goofy notes for your Valentine.

Shoe Wine Bottle Holders

What better way to present a bottle of wine to the shoe-lover in your life than in a wine bottle holder shaped like a shoe? Grab your lady’s absolute favorite bottle of wine and present it in this cute wine holder. We think it’s a fun way to display wine for date night, but also a great gift to the single lady in your life who still has plenty of girls’ nights.

LED Light String With Timer

Need another centerpiece for your table? This LED light is the perfect partner for a Valentine’s Day bouquet. We’ve got another month or so until daylight savings, so it’s still pretty dark in the morning and early evenings. With the warm white LED light, we can light up our flower arrangements, centerpieces, houseplants and more, without resorting to open flames. They will look great on the front table paired with roses, wine, and two glasses tonight. No other lights necessary!

Men’s NFL Watches

The NFL season might have come to an end, but a true fan’s loyalty never leaves. These NFL watches are going fast, but we’ve found them to be the perfect piece of memorabilia for a true football fan. They’re an excellent Valentine’s gift for budding relationships because they’re not too expensive, but not meaningless or cliché. Watches are a great gift because they’re stylish and practical – you always need to know the time! These NFL watches are actually perfect for daily use and high movement activities like running and biking because they’re water resistant and contain an adjustable nylon band for comfort.

Enjoy your day of love with treats, sweets, drinks, and enjoyment. Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

This great set comes in a caramel-chocolate color and is the ultimate in comfort. If you’re giving it as a gift, might we suggest adding hot cocoa, cookies, or a bottle of wine to that tote? Happy cozy Valentine’s Day, right?

Everyone deserves to be comfortable while lounging around the house, but soft indoor robes aren’t meant for public, which is why we love these cardigan sweaters. Loose and cozy, but perfect for lounging and totally appropriate for public! You can take a nice and cozy nap and then go to the grocery store in the same outfit. We like it.

So what better place to have ultimate comfort than your bed? If you’ve never had a mattress pad, you’re missing out. This comfort loft mattress pad is the perfect solution to an older or well-worn mattress. It will slightly increase the height of your bed, but with separated boxes of padding, the filling will stay evenly distributed, created a comfortable night’s rest. If you’ve got an older mattress on your hands, you can delay spending another $600 on a new one by purchasing this great mattress pad!

If you’re looking for comfortable and cozy, it’s important to include the kids, which is why we love these soft animal pillows. They’re functional, comfortable, and adorable, and you can choose from four different animals: frog, hippo, dog, and monkey! Add them to your kids’ bedroom décor, or keep them on the couch for family snuggling time. They’re perfectly squishy and cuddly, and everyone will love them.

Lakeside Selection 4 Cube

Foam Bath Rug Sets

We’re not sure if you’ve noticed, but there’s a bit of a new trend hitting bathroom floors, and we’re all about it. Bath rugs are a must-have item, but so many styles and materials just trap dirt and moisture, causing yet another breeding ground for bacteria. Join the trends and swap out those fuzzy bathroom rugs for these soft and plush foam bath rug sets. You will never look back.

Odor-Absorbing Sniffer

This Odor-Absorbing Sniffer is an adorable way to put an end to foul smells around your house. From backpacks and gym bags to laundry rooms and pet mistakes, these cute stuffed puppies are filled with the odor-absorbing mineral Zeolite. It works much like your typical deodorizing box of baking soda, absorbing odors and reducing bacteria without any chemicals. But, these “sniffers” come in three adorable puppy breeds – German Shepherd, Beagle, and Lab.

Women’s NFL Fan Headbands 

To celebrate the end of the playoffs and the countdown to the big game, we had to include a little NFL gear, right? We really like these cute women’s NFL headbands. They’re fashionable enough to wear to your game day party, but comfortable enough to wear while running errands and cleaning the house. It’s made from football jersey material, so it’s comfortable and breathable. Anything that keeps your hair out of your face is a great addition to you wardrobe, so find your favorite team’s design today.

Cushioned Folding Pet Bed 

What list would be complete without homage to our furry friends? This cozy pet bed is perfect for small-to-medium dogs, and fits snuggly on your living room furniture, keeping pet odors, dirt, and hair off your upholstery, but still letting your pooch enjoy quality time with his human friends. It’s also an amazing travel bed for your pup to enjoy, whether sleeping over at Grandma’s, or taking a car ride up to Yosemite. And, since it’s made from camping chair material, and designed like a butterfly chair, this is an excellent pet bed for camping.
