Valentine’s Day at Dovecote Style

Here at Dovecote, another holiday means another new outfit! We are busy receiving lots of new spring pieces from some of our favorite designers and our brand new Magaschoni cashmere order put us in the mood to dress for Valentine’s Day!

Full of corals, strawberries and the palest of pinks, we unloaded boxes of the sweetest, softest cashmere. What could be better than that incomparably irresistible texture for a Valentine’s Day celebration?

A whisper of pink is beautiful with a stone colored pant, creamy pastels meshing together. We love to accessorize with hand-beaded earrings from Miguel Ases in shades of rose and glowy gold. A zodiac necklace from ASHA New York makes for a fun new take on an old pickup line. What’s your sign indeed!

The most delicate dove grey poncho looks incredible layered over a silky smooth tee and paired with a charcoal ponte legging from Equestrian Designs. We love the removable fur collar on the poncho, allowing this piece to easily transition to something more casual. If you’re staying in for the holiday, that’s a great option but if you’re going out, a raspberry clutch and graceful earrings make a real impact.

Whatever you do for Valentine’s Day, we hope you’re wrapped in and surrounded by love. Sometimes that’s the same thing!

– Emma, Dovecote Stylist

The New Kid on the Block

Fearrington is home to many different animals in our Belted Barnyard family! From belted cows, to goats to chickens, there's always a fuzzy face to greet visitors and residents.

Style Defined: AVANT GARDE

This look was styled by Emma. Taking on avant garde fashion is not for the faint of heart. We like to take a page from our international friends, those from Paris or Tokyo or Sydney, and just go for it. Fashion is supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be experimental and exciting. We love to play with proportions and textures and colors and this look is no different. We’ve taken a pair of pleated, high-waisted wide leg cropped pants (a must for Fall 2015 and Spring 2016! Get your pair... Full Post >

Sustainable, Organic & Biodynamic Wine

We previously announced the beginning of our transition to include more organic and local wines on our wine by the glass menu at The Fearrington House. We live in a very exciting time for wine, and one fortunately where some of the best producers are using organic or biodynamic methods. There are three main types of eco-friendly viticulture: Sustainable, Organic, and Biodynamic. Sustainable Sustainable viticulture is a practice that has no formal regulations, but states a grower interest in... Full Post >

New Year, New You

Now that the holidays are behind us, it is time to focus on reducing the stress this may have created. Begin the New Year with a new you. Take time to focus on your well-being to have a healthy start to the year. The Spa at Fearrington would like to introduce a new facial, the White Brightening Facial. This highly effective 60 minute facial visibly illuminates the complexion to leave it naturally more even and translucently clear. Our skilled estheticians use precision movements to... Full Post >
