Style Resolutions

New Year, new you! Resolution time!

Here at Dovecote, we love the optimism and freshness that comes with the new year. That newness inevitably flows into our fashion choices as well so this year we have a couple style resolutions to suggest.

Try a new trend. Whether it be bold stripes, a pop of bubblegum pink, or a dramatic sleeve, 2017 is the year to step out of your comfort zone and try something new! We have all kinds of new pieces arriving soon.

Sign up for our e-mails to get the latest scoop; this is the most exciting time of the year to receive Dovecote e-mails as there is seemingly something new and fresh every hour!

Actually, make that another resolution. Our e-mails are delightful and informative. And look! You’ve just crossed a resolution off your list!

Invest in quality. Sure, you could buy the same thing every year, but those years start to add up! Why not invest in one piece that will truly last? We love Kinross cashmere, Schneiders outerwear, Kas scarves, and QL2 pants for pure versatility and durability. They create classic silhouettes in the highest quality fabrics so they’ll not only last forever, but will never go out of style!

Accessorize. Accessories make the outfit! Think a big pair of hand-beaded sparkly earrings from Miguel Ases, or a hand-printed Suzi Roher scarf. These can take even the most banal of ensembles into fabulous territory. We love the bold graphic jewelry from Petra Meiren, our stunning shoes from Panara, and an eye-catching belt to really up your accessory game.

Whatever your resolutions may be, Dovecote is sure to help! Pop by the store and meet with our team of stylists so you can make sure 2017 is your most stylish year yet!

New Year, New Garden?

Actually, to a gardener in the South, that's a bit of a fantasy. With so many sunny and pleasant winter days outside, the garden never really does get "put to rest." Tools don't quite make it to storage in the tool shed well-oiled and cleaned, and the gardener herself only has a few indoor days by the fire to contemplate next year's seed catalogs. For the many of us who would gladly exchange a long winter nap for the chance to smell flowers and feel warm sunshine on our backs in January,... Full Post >

Healthier Skin in 2017

Your skin is your largest organ of your body. Biologically, our skin is our first line of defense. And, like every part of our bodies, skin responds to care and attention. Proper treatment can revitalize skin and slow the aging process, keeping skin healthier, longer. Our skin works so well that it’s easy to take skin for granted. But the difference between neglected and pampered skin is incredible — once you experience the joy of supple, breathable skin, you’ll be hooked. Your whole... Full Post >
