The article says that Witherspoon is being sued for copyright and trademark infringement because the logo that her fashion company is using is nearly identical to Weingartner’s flower-shaped insignia. “She literally stole my Magnolia,” says Weingartner, who designed the logo in 2008. “My design actually looks nothing like a magnolia, and Draper James not only took the design, but also decided to call it a magnolia.”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
