BOUTIQUES ON THE WEST END
Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street www.darrylsny.com
No doubt you've walked or driven by this fresh window display lately. Now it's time to go inside Darryl's, to check out the styles for yourself. We found a bathing suit cover-up that will work perfectly at the Beacon Pool. (It's technically a dress... but does that really matter?) From flouncy to fringe, you'll find it in Darryl's. Located across the street from Hudson Beach Glass.
183 Main Street www.luxeoptique.com
These Anne & Valentin frames just came in, and have already been favorites with many. As you can see from the photo, the frames are simply stunning. Delicate, yet will stay solidly on your face. You must try them on, to see what we mean about the effect they will have around your eyes.
And don't forget, the eye doctor is in at Luxe Optique! Schedule your appointment, but walk in any time to shop frames.
BOUTIQUES ON THE EAST END
Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique
1 East Main Street, Retail #3 www.lambshillbridalboutique.com (near the historic dummy light)
Ladies in waiting - that's what you'll find at Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique, when a bride is searching for a dress. While she's trying on gowns, a plush sitting room accomodates excited guests, whether an entourage or just one or two friends or family members. Call them today to book your appointment: (845) 765-2900.
For you Hungry Hippos -
There's a new Breakfast Egg Sandwich in town! And it's smothered between slices of house-made English muffin. Are you as obsessed with English muffins as we are?
