Hello-Hello, welcome to an almost-weekend here in the Corner Condo at the Prepatorium.
Today we are engaging in some much-needed Friday Fun, starting with news that Vineyard Vines is decorating hotel suites. From Women’s Wear Daily:
Talk about living the Vineyard Vines lifestyle.
The nautical-inspired brand has partnered with Lark Hotels, a boutique hotel group with properties throughout coastal New England, to create two guest suites.
Below, a suite at the Captain Fairfield Inn in Kennebunkport.
Back to the WWD.com story:
The suites mix the brand’s coastal preppy chic touches with the modern influences for which Lark Hotels is known. Pillows and bed bolsters are made from boardshorts material, and the edging on the window shades is from Vineyard Vines belts.
Another part of the suite.
The Captain Fairfield Inn is the first Lark property to have suites with VV decor.
Next to have the Vines treatment: 76 Main on Nantucket. That property’s grand opening is June 9.
This isn’t the first interaction between the two brands, Lark employees are outfitted by Vineyard Vines. More from the Lark blog.
From managers to housekeepers (and even friends and family!), you’ll see the crew at our hotels decked out in stylish vineyard vines dresses, khakis, polo shirts, tunics and capris.
Lark’s other properties include the Attwater in Newport and the historic Danforth in Portland (Maine).
Our other tidbit involves Friday Fun of the Four-Legged kind, we wanted to share more preppish duds for your pooch.
The madras coat is by ParsonsDesignGrad on etsy. The shop owner and design whiz got in touch last week about her creations and I just fell in love with them. One of the niftiest things about the coat is that it is reversible, the flip side of the oh-so-snappy madras is a lovely repp tie stripe.
The coats are made from re-purposed and upcycled vintage linens, there are some wonderful patterns available.
If interested in visiting the ParsonsDesignGrad etsy shop, just click here.
We also stumbled across some new styles while
endlessly grazing studiously reading some of today’s offerings at Fab.com.
These are by Preppie Pup, available at Fab, there are definitely some ‘fashionable’ looks.
Seeing these dapper styles reminded me of the posts we’ve done showcasing The Rover Boutique. Below, some of the images we have previously shared.
There are new styles at the Boutique, including the Fieldwork Raincoat.
This one has a bit of the Barbour touch, don’t you think? Just in time for spring, the Boutique also has some cute new bowtie collars, like this seersucker style, definitely today’s Pretty in Pink.
On that cheery note, g’bye until next time!
