This month we have the pleasure of featuring a local North Carolina shop, Apricot Lane! This celebrity-inspired, chic, and affordable boutique is right on-trend with statement necklaces, colorful accessories, and summery tanks and dresses in wonderfully perfect hues and patterns. We visited our nearby Cary Towne Center location to meet with manager, Diana Leiterman, and snag a few treats to pass along to you! It was tough to not also bring home treats for ourselves; I probably said “I want that!” a dozen times!
Apricot Lane surprised me with their range of fashionable products — cool sunglasses at only $8 and couture dresses within budget as well. In thinking about our brides, we asked shop owner, Carol Toulas, to name a few honeymoon must-haves:
“Beautiful swimsuit cover-ups are definitely a must-have item for a honeymoon vacation. We carry so many great styles, including tunics and sheer dresses, that you can easily pair with flip-flops and hit the beach! They all come in really trendy colors and patterns like black and white, neon and chevron. Another honeymoon essential would fabulous dresses. At Apricot Lane we have so many different styles from maxi to shift to hi-lo – great for nice dinners, walking around town, and more. And last, but not least, you have to have a gorgeous tote! We have countless bags perfect for a resort honeymoon excursion!”
Well, before the honeymoon comes the wedding, and we have just the inspiration for your big day as well! Inspired by the look and feel of Apricot Lane, we’ve put together today’s inspiration board using summery modern colors, extra baubles, and trendy patterns.
This month we have a few goodies to give away to one lucky reader: a headband, bauble earrings, and perfume from Apricot Lane! What a great set of treats to ring in summertime! Lori and I picked out this combo with an island destination in mind. Whether you’re honeymooning this summer or just taking it easy around town, you’re going to love this prize set from Apricot Lane!
