Personalized Backpack and Lunch Tote Sets!

Summer School? Hardly not, just year around school getting ready to start in North Carolina!  We're shopping school supplies in SUMMER!  Stop in Carolina Clover, The Monogram Boutique and CarolinaClover.com for your new backpack, lunch tote bag and pencil case all personalized with our on site embroidery service.

Savvy moms know that having a complete matching set of backpack, lunch, and pencil case is firstly the practical choice.  Multiple kids getting out the door to school and activities?  Matching bags per kid makes life easier.  We love a monogram backpack or a personalized lunch tote bag for total practicality.  How many times has a lunch tote or a backpack been left in the lunch room, classroom or bus?  We like to think that these items will be returned to the owner with a name or monogram embroidered on them.  It doesn't make much sense for these personalized items to get tossed in the lost and found or donation box.  We all like to make a backpack buddies donation though!

Carolina Clover is featuring our newest designs in personalized backpack sets for girls and boys.  The new lines are out and are already selling out.  If you find that the pattern you covet has sold out, there will be a restock of monogram backpacks and monogram lunch totes at the end of June. You'll love our floral, fish and stripes patterns!  Don't forget to add on a drawstring backpack that is perfect for after school activities, middle school gym class or even an overnight to a friends house.  Our kids love these drawstring sport bags and they have carried the same backpack for YEARS.  Whenever it gets funky, we like to throw the bags in the washing machine and lay out to dry. Now that's quality. Can you do that with a bag from the box store? Probably not.
Carolina Clover's monogrammed backpack sets feature the best in backpacks.  You'll love the padded pockets, the folder size stow pockets the reinforced bottoms and adjustable straps you didn't even know you needed.  Most of our backpacks are a full size for elementary school and up, but if you've got a pre schooler or a kindergartener, check out our small pre-school sized backpacks for these little tikes. We love the matching lunch tote and nap time blanket and your child will too.  Don't run yourself all over town searching for all these items, shop Carolina Clover for all your back to school needs.

If you are local to Wake Forest, North Raleigh, Rolesville, Youngsville and Knightdale, consider stopping in our little monogram shop to see what we have stocked for you in the personalized backpack department.  If you discover a bag you have to have locally or from Amazon, stop by our shop for embroidery service.  Even if you don't buy the book bag from us we can personalize it for you inexpensively and we offer a 2nd day service. Don't wait until the last minute to get your backpack embroidered as our queue gets quite busy in August will all the traditional calendar kids going back to school.  Whatever you do, trust your embroidery needs to Carolina Clover's professional and commercial grade embroidery where we can add a name a monogram or initials to your bookbags.  We don't play around with our embroidery service, you get quality work with our professional embroiders that have been in business embroidering your daycare backpacks, soccer bags, backpacks and everything else for 9 years.

Monogram Graduation Gift Ideas

Did you receive a graduation announcement?  Do you need help in finding the perfect monogrammed graduation gift?  Check out Carolina Clover's Monogrammed Graduation Gift Ideas to help you tackle the task of getting the perfect gift for your graduate.

Whether your graduate is headed off to college, commuting to a job, or simply embarking on a vocational training there are many gifts that can assist with the new transition.  Carolina Clover likes to suggest practical personalized gifts for the new living situations that the graduate will be transitioning to.  In apartment or dorm living where all the rooms and facilities are shared, gift ideas like a monogrammed shower caddy or monogrammed towels are the perfect gift ideas.  Items like monogrammed towel wraps and robes are essential for the new communal living situation.



Other practical gift ideas include a good rain jacket or umbrella as they have to park and walk or just be out in the elements more than being on a high school campus.  Going for the practical gift idea is a huge help to the parents who are adding up university expenses and if you can contribute a practical and useful gift, this amounts to less they have to buy the kiddo in supply shopping.



Say your budget doesn't stretch to a big practical graduation gift we like to suggest to our customers a monogrammed tumbler with either a name or a monogram that's great for the ladies or gentleman. An etched tumbler is in the $30 range, but if your budget is even tighter or you have a bunch of graduates to buy for, we like to suggest a bulk group gift of a $10 tumbler from a box store and Carolina Clover can cut your monogrammed decal for you to go on the tumbler.  Our in store customers are offered quantity discounts, so let us know if you have a bunch of graduates to buy for  and we'll see what we can do to get your cost down on the tumblers.  If a monogram tumbler doesn't seem like enough, we like to suggest to our customers that they fill the tumbler with cash, gift cards, or even candy kisses and hugs for the perfect graduation gift idea that is affordable too.


Our in store customers like to bring us the linens they select for the dorm and we can embroider them right in our monogram shop located in downtown Wake Forest, North Carolina.  Our turn around time is 2 days for items coming from outside our store. In store purchases from our monogram shop are completed same day or next day, which is why we are the perfect place to start shopping for your monogrammed graduation gifts.

Monogram graduation gifts selected from our online monogram shop are quoted in the "availability" area of the product description.  Please allow enough time for production and shipping if you are ordering from CarolinaClover.com.  If you are ever in our area, please stop by our monogram shop that includes on site embroidery service and on site decal service.  We also offer a selection of curated gifts that can be personalized.

Yankee South, The New Lifestyle Brand for Loving the South

Once again the Yankees are invading the South, this time they are loving and staying in our Southern communities and really enjoying the flip flop weather and short sleeves for a good 9 months out of the year. Who doesn't? We welcome them with their Northern sass, fuggetaboutit! They love the slower pace, the Southern charm and the Southern class that is known on the Southeast Coast.




Yankee South has captured this quintessential Northern Sass with Southern Class in a new lifestyle brand of tees, tanks and trucker hats and tumblers.  The Yankee South shirts are the softest you'll find, our favorite is the "Hustle" tank in a flowy fabric with a racer back for ladies.  You don't have to be from the North to HUSTLE! If you are from the North living in the South, the typical lifestyle brands don't speak to you, but Yankee South will.  If you are proud of your Northern raisin' and your southern Livin' Yankee South is the new lifestyle brand for you.



Our Yankee customers visit our monogram shop and comment how they love the Yankee South lifestyle brand.  They get the T-shirt going, the Legacy Trucker Hat going, some hoops and some flip flops and you've got a new "Yankee Uniform".  We joke in the shop that our big hoop earrings sell out every time we stock them and we've labeled them our "Yankee Hoops" because our northern customers love a good hoop earring with a trucker hat.

If you're a Yankee in search of a brand apparel and graphic tees that speak to your heritage, check out Yankee South.  They have way more apparel and accessories we've featured here. They are getting into more and more retail stores and will take the South by storm, y'all wait 'n see.  Meanwhile, you can shop YankeeSouth.com online or you can also find them in our monogram shop at Carolina Clover, The Monogram Boutique in Downtown Wake Forest, NC.  We are loving their social media, so follow them @theyankeesouth on instagram.
