Saturday, January 19this a very special day indeed. It’s the birthday of one of the South’s favorite daughters! Dolly Parton celebrates another trip around the sun this Saturday and we are not the only people rejoicing. Fellow famous Southern Belle, and self-proclaimed Dolly Parton mega fan, Reese Witherspoon is honoring the Queen of country music in a way that we know she will just love.

Last year, Witherspoon and her clothing brand Draper James announced they were celebrating Dolly by donating the shop’s profits to a cause near and dear to Dolly’s heart—her Imagination Library. This foundation is Parton’s passion project and she’s donated free books every month to children from birth to five years of age all over the world.

 

Witherspoon even posed with the Smoky Mountain songbird along with an adorable Draper James tote bearing the phrase “What would Dolly do?”

 

 

 

 

 

Draper James has several products featuring this moniker and we just love it! We think Dolly Parton is a great icon to emulate. This year, Witherspoon as updated the entire “What Would Dolly Do” collection featuring a font inspired by Parton’s signature on all of her album covers.

 

 

Also, this year, Witherspoon and Draper James are changing up the way they are celebrating Parton’s birthday. It’s now a two-day affair. Today, Friday January 17, and tomorrow, Saturday January 18, Draper James will donate a book to the Imagination Library for every purchase you make. You aren’t limited to the Dolly inspired collection, but of course, there are some great choices there. What a way to celebrate our hero Dolly! A gift for yourself and a new book for a child to enjoy! We couldn’t imagine that anything else would make Dolly happier.
