ATLANTA, July 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lakeeda "Lake" Kelley and Lakeisha "Mariah" Huq, the entrepreneur sisters behind the multicultural children's bedding line Jewel and Jem, will be featured guest speakers at the upcoming third annual SHE Expo for Women, taking place July 16-17 at the Chattanooga Convention Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
As part of the weekend's featured events, Kelley and Huq will be speaking on home decorating topics Saturday, July 16th at 12:30 pm, and Sunday, July 17th at 4 pm. Born and raised in Chattanooga, the sisters are excited to bring their message and work back home and promote women in business.
"We are thrilled to be part of such a great event for women," said Huq, Chief Operating Officer and Head of Marketing for Jewel and Jem. "Chattanooga has made us the women we are today, and it will be great to be back home."
Bringing the hottest, freshest looks into the home, the luxury children's bedding line has been turning heads since its debut in 2009.

The line will also be launched through Macy's department stores soon.
Among other guest speakers at the women's conference include lifestyle guru Martha Stewart and former "The Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel.
