"We're having the Grand Opening the day after Thanksgiving, on Black Friday, only we're calling it Pink Friday," Miranda tells The Boot. "We're going to make it a tradition to turn the block pink every year at that time."
Miranda says the store will carry a little bit of everything. "It's antiques, gifts, boots, jeans and pretty much everything you can imagine. My favorite thing in the store is a glittery pink bicycle hanging from the ceiling. I'm really 12 at heart," she adds with a laugh.
The store joins other shops in the town with such whimsical names as the Lucky Rose, the Rose Petal and Whatever Is Lovely.
Miranda recently finished her 2012 tour and will be featured on Blake's Christmas special, "Not So Family Christmas," set to air Dec. 3 on NBC. First up, of course, is a performance on tonight's CMA Awards (watch for her special performance outfit). She's also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. Later this month, she's also vying for Favorite Female Vocalist, Country, at the American Music Awards, which will air Nov. 18 (also on ABC). And she's already thinking ahead to her 2013 Locked & Reloaded tour with Dierks Bentley, which kicks off Jan. 17. Just the thought of it all makes us tired, so we have to wonder where Miranda found time to shop for and open a store!
"I love projects," she explains. "I love anything that stimulates my creativity."
The logo for the Pink Pistol, by the way, is a pistol with wings. The catchphrase underneath reads: "For the Wild at Heart." The store is located at 214 West Main Street in Tishomingo.
