Happening This Weekend: 8/23/2019

This weekend is the Beacon Back To School Party at South Avenue Park. We are officially in the final countdown to summer ending and school starting. But let's be honest, it's usually pretty hot in September, so plenty of time remains to play outside. A Little Beacon Blog will have a table at the block party, and we're trading you a tote for a plastic bag! See here for details. Meanwhile, let's get to the list of things to do!

Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street

Beaconites are very fortunate to have this designer, Eva Varro, so close in Darryl's Boutique. Eva designed a unique construction technique for her clothing, making it fit especially well. Check her out also for her signature placement prints and designs, like the blouse pictured here! Based in Downtown Los Angeles, every item is handmade in the United States. Find this piece (from Eva's fall collection) and more, available at Darryl's Clothing Boutique on Main Street, across from Hudson Beach Glass.

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

The delicate lines are what set the Anne & Valentin frames apart from other eyewear designers. This playful sunny can come just like this (the way it's pictured here) with the dark glass, or you could fill with color! Luxe Optique are experts in imagining what you might not think possible, and then making it so. This frame is from the Nomades collection and is called Shibuya.



Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique
1 East Main, Retail #3

(near the Dummy Light)
A veil may not be needed when wearing a stunning backless dress like this one by Lillian Sest. Instead, why not try a stunning headpiece by Beilaire Bridal? Show off your beautiful back!

Book your appointment with Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique today.
