Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street

For those who always wanted a motorcycle jacket, but were like..."Can I rock it? Is it really comfortable enough? Can I move my arms well enough?" You need a quilted motorcycle jacket made of soft fabric. The quilted zipper motorcycle jacket is at Darryl's Clothing Boutique right now in olive from Lysee’s Fall 2019 collection. Grab it for an easy evening cover as you head out to dinner.

SECOND SATURDAY ART: See the art exhibit from the Beacon-based artist Catherine Welshman in Darryl's now.

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

Pictured here is "Emily Men, Meeow," a globetrotting stylist. She is wearing a frame from Leisure Society, which is dedicated to heirloom design; creating an object once with the intention of having it last forever.  The collection is made with only the most luxurious of components: titanium frames, 12, 18, & 24k gold plating, diamonds, and buffalo horn. But guess what? They also come with a Lifetime Warranty. Walk into Luxe Optique to try on a pair.
