Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique

Perfect for a Fall weekend road trip, you are going to look hot in these fitted motojackets in faux suede, faux leather, and quilting paired with skinny pants and leggings. If you have been meaning to add or update a leather jacket (faux) to your wardrobe, these are the ones.  Step into Darryl's Clothing Boutique near Bank Square with your pumpkin spice latte today.

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

Buy 2 Frames and Get...
Premium Progressive Lenses in one frame, and get matched with Free Premium Progressive Lenses in the other frame!
Ordering progressive lenses can often be more expensive than the frame itself. When you buy two frames and fill one with premium progressive lenses, Luxe will fill the other frames with the same thing! This is perfect for getting a pair of glasses, and prescription sunglasses.
