Miranda Lambert fans, prepare yourselves. The country star just announced that her Pink Pistol Boutique will celebrate its grand re-opening on Oct. 22 in her hometown of Lindale, Texas. The store is sure to be a one-stop-shop for fashion and entertainment. It will boast a larger inventory, more Lambert merchandise and Miranda-esque gear, a small stage for musical performances, three photo booths and an old-fashioned soda fountain.
Lambert gave fans a sneak peek inside the boutique in an Instagram post back in August.
The Pink Pistol Boutique is also rolling out new game day gear just in time for fall.
In addition to the boutique, the barbecue and music venue Love and War in Texas, located next door to the Pink Pistol, will celebrate the grand opening of its third location. Lambert’s family approached Love and War owner Tye Phelps about opening a new location for the popular North Texas restaurant as part of a plan to revitalize downtown Lindale. Phelps was instrumental in Lambert’s career by giving 17-year-old Miranda a place to perform her self-penned songs.
With a helping hand in music history and plenty of Texas cred, it’s no wonder the Lamberts wanted Love and War in Texas along for the ride. Miranda’s mother, Bev Lambert, said the partnership just made sense.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Love and War in Texas, and for good reason,” Bev Lambert told the Dallas Observer. “They took a chance on our daughter, Miranda, when there were few venues that would take notice of young talent.”
Pink Pistol will celebrate its East Texas homecoming with a killer kick-off block party. The event will feature a performance by the Lindale High School cheerleaders and drill team, a chili cook-off benefiting the Susan G. Komen foundation and a habenero pepper eating contest. There will also be a wine tasting where attendees can wash down all that delicious Texas cuisine with wines with names like “White Liar” and “Crazy Ex Girlfriend” from Lambert’s Red 55 Winery. The festivities will begin at 10 a.m.
Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation will also hold an adoption drive from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Attendees (and their fur friends) are encouraged to wear pink to participate in the Pretty in Pink contest for a chance to win prizes. Texas’ own Charlie Robison will close out the evening with a live performance.
Lambert closed the original Pink Pistol location in Tishomingo, Okla. earlier this year following her divorce from Blake Shelton. The property was sold to Shelton. The revamped and expanded Pink Pistol represents a new start for Lambert and her beloved Lindale.
