Sip on Fall at Fearrington

Autumn in Burgundy

The autumn season and Fall menu are in full swing at The Fearrington House. In the spirit of the changing weather, we have a few stunning specialty cocktails to share!

Autumn in Burgundy

This gin based drink serves up a local appeal with Mother Earth Gin from Kinston, NC. Our crabapple cordial, made in-house using crabapples from beside The Fearrington House Inn adds an undeniable sweetness to this easy-to-drink cocktail. You’ll also find Jean Foillard, Beaujolais Nouveau, Morgon, Burgundy, France in this spectacular drink. And, the final touch is another North Carolina tribute, a Crispin Apple from the Tar Heel State poached on top for garnish.

Style Defined: CLASSIC

This look was styled by Jeanne. We can think of nothing more classic than color-blocked cashmere. Flattering, luxurious and timeless, cashmere will never go out of style! We love this grey and black sweater, especially paired with its matching fringed scarf, both from Magaschoni. Keep it simple with a black ponte legging and a small structured satchel from Daniella Lehavi. A ballet-inspired pointy toe flat from French Sole and mod earrings in stark black and white echo the color-blocking... Full Post >

Caring for Cashmere

Here at Dovecote Style, it's no secret that we love our cashmere. We're overjoyed when it arrives in the shop; you'll never see a group of women so thrilled by sweaters when it's 95 degrees out in early August. We invest in it, just like you. We only carry the finest quality cashmere and to make sure it stays that way, we care for it. Lucky for all of us, The Laundress is here. A laundry care line created by two young women who were tired of their luxury clothing items being destroyed by the... Full Post >

Harvest & The Garden

With the colder and shorter days of winter fast approaching, finding new ways to bring the garden indoors becomes one of our favorite tasks. While all the colorful flowers our gardens have enjoyed may be a fast-disappearing memory, there is still plenty of material and opportunity in the garden for seasonal decorating. Here in the Gardens at Fearrington, we like to use container plantings, filled with colorful evergreen shrubs, grasses, and hardy blooms to group by the entrances to shops and... Full Post >
