Happy anniversary!

Thirty years of fashion (and now fame) is being marked Thursday at Brown House clothing store in Loehmann's Plaza.

Owner Doris Pittell (pictured) is planning a big celebration. I asked her to send me a little history lesson about her boutique. Here's what she says in an e-mail:

"It's grown from humble beginnings in a 'brown house' in South Land Park, selling silk blouses and tennis outfits out of a small den, to a full-service store on Fair Oaks Boulevard selling the latest that fashion in America has to offer."

Doris began buying samples from showrooms in Los Angeles, piling them
in a car and driving back to Sacramento. Now she's such a fashion diva, she jets to New York to check out the latest trends on the runway.

Her store's mantra? "When you want something a little nicer."

I've been in Brown House numerous times and know that Doris has one of the most loyal clienteles in the area. The fashions cover everything from sportswear, daytime (playtime!) to after five.

If you have a chance to stop by Thursday, put your name in a hat for a drawing to win a holiday jacket from Canvasbacks.

And be sure to give Doris a big hug. She deserves it!

About Comments

Reader comments on Sacbee.com are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com

Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at feedback@sacbee.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to feedback@sacbee.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.

hide comments

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from sacbee.com. While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on sacbee.com and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
