On the eve of the highly anticipated Ole Miss vs. South Carolina football game, Provision Oxford will host a “Football Friday” event on Friday, Nov. 2 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Designer and Ole Miss alumna Gresham Hodges will visit the store to showcase her fall jewelry line, and the pieces will be sold exclusively at this event.

“I can’t wait to showcase my fall collection on Nov. 2 and 3 at our trunk show at Provision Oxford,” said Hodges. “It will be a great opportunity to grab some stocking stuffers and a happy for yourself for all those holiday parties.”

Hodges was a member of Tri Delta sorority and was deeply embedded in the university and Oxford communities. The owner of Provision Oxford, Doug Self, knew Hodges when she began making jewelry in high school.

The stylish pieces Hodges plans to bring are designed for women of all ages.

“Gresham definitely has a following of college girls in Oxford that continually come to see her,” said Beth Harris, a sales associate at Provision Oxford. “I personally wear her jewelry, so her pieces are not just for college girls.”

Provision Oxford hosts Football Friday events on all home-SEC games as a way to attract the hundreds of people in attendance to learn more about the business.

“Each Football Friday the proceeds from that weekend’s event go to a local charity,” Harris said. “This season we have donated to the Pantry and to Oxford Medical Ministries.”

Self, an Ole Miss alumnus, left Oxford and founded JDouglas, a showroom that represents the leading brands in the home industry, in 2001.

He now has showrooms in Atlanta and High Point, North Carolina, that serve his customers, who are the top retailers and interior designers throughout the southeast.

Self returned to his collegiate roots in 2013 to open Provision Oxford. His mission was to establish a retail component to continue his legacy of design and philanthropy. Self describes the launch of Provision as his way “to give back to Oxford and Ole Miss, both of whom have given so much to me.”

The philosophy of the store is in its name. The word provision means “to provide something that is not readily accessible.”
