Well hello April, its SOOOOOO nice to see you. We are now open everyday from 10am-5pm! We have had a nice winter of trade shows, getting projects done, and enjoying some time off, but we are very ready to see our customers everyday, share what fun things we found for you this season and to say goodbye to snow.
The store is filling up very quickly with many new spring items from fun florals, to classic stripes, laid back casual and dressy- this season has it all. We are seeing the graphic tee trend continue, prints have calmed down (last year they were everywhere) a lot the store is full of solid color tops in uber lush fabrics and textures, button downs, and layering pieces. Tunics and leggings have now exited the trend category and become a staple in everyone’s basic wardrobe so we have a nice variety of colors and shapes for you & created a basics section. As always our dress collection is the best around for weddings, graduation, showers…. we are your best stop for dress shopping.
We have a few new jewelry lines coming this spring and we are mixing up the looks. Last year we saw a lot of delicate layered pieces with geometric shapes (the bar necklaces…) we are still seeing this but bringing in some chunky pieces & colorful things too. Also everyone needs the hottest item- the leather choker. We of course have a handmade by a local artist style that can be worn 6 ways and doesn’t look like you’re wearing a teenage trend- very classy & pretty- its my favorite new jewelry item (and I’m turning 40 this year)!
We have two new purse collections that we can’t wait to share with you. Mona B is made from old army tents and Anna Nova is the hottest handbag designer in Australia, now selling in the US!
We are bringing back a customer favorite from years ago Lollia Life bath & body and possibly some other apothecary lines- what do you think of this coconut oil trend? We love it! Also planning a little girl shelving unit filled with fun hair accessories and handmade children’s jewelry no doubt inspired by our little Rita who is already 3 years old and fashionable as ever.
We have been working hard on a few things that we hope to announce later this spring (new website- styleboxes hand picked and shipped to you?!) As you can see its been a quiet, yet busy winter of planning and continuing to grow the shop. Starting our 17th year in business I would like to say- WOW what a journey! 17 is my lucky number, lets make this year a great one, hope to see you all soon! – Erin & the P.Shoppe gals.
