At Dovecote

Dovecote is a lifestyle boutique offering an ever-changing selection of chic apparel for both men and women,  accessories, home décor and gifts for every occasion.

Stocking Stuffers

What's more fun than stockings during the holidays? So many little gifts . . . all the better to prolong the holidays! Here at Dovecote, we've got just the thing. Or things, rather. Pretty ring dishes for the ladies, whimsical socks for the gents, artisan salts for the foodie and fun bottle openers for the bar aficionado. We have pens and stationery from Kate Spade, jewelry from Robin Haley and Miguel Ases, pocket squares from Armstrong and Wilson. The list goes on and on! Pop by the... Full Post >

Hostess with the Mostest

As the holiday season starts to rear its festive head, the topic of hostess gifts becomes more and more important. Something that we don't normally think of in our day-to-day lives - unless we're a jet-setting socialite - is now a real concern. What to bring? Here at Dovecote, we've got you covered. Stemless champagne flutes say "celebrate!" while being just unique enough to set you apart from the crowd. LAFCO candles in subtle scents such as Feu de Bois, French Lilac or Chamomile and...

Style Defined: CHIC

This look was styled by Emma. Nothing says chic quite like this new line from Australia, TY-LR. Every item we have in the shop is jaw-droppingly beautiful and perfectly tailored. Take this dress, for example: winter white, made from heavy viscose, and clearly exquisite. We love it layered under a structured coat from Ronen Chen and paired with Robin Haley's simple pearl earrings and, sticking with the black and white theme, accessorized by a striped handbag with lots of texture. This is a... Full Post >

Holiday Sparkle

Here at Dovecote, we sure do love us a little (or a lot!) of sparkle, especially during the holidays. Who doesn't?! It's fun, it's festive, it's flattering. That being said, we've got a lot to choose from here at the shop and we definitely have our favorites. The Bella necklaces from Fairchild-Baldwin immediately spring to mind. These pack a big punch without weighing you down or being uncomfortable. We love the soft leather collar and the faceted resin beads, not to mention the brilliant... Full Post >

Festive Attire

We love the familial love and attention that comes with the holiday season -- big dinners, trimming the tree, opening presents,holiday shopping, baking cookies and decorating the house. However, we also love the fact that holiday season equals party season. Glam dresses with sparkly clutches and fabulous new shoes, paired with bubbly cocktails, tasty hors d'oeuvres and festive chatter. Have we got just the thing for you! Fresh from Australia, luxury is exemplified by TY-LR. Sumptuous... Full Post >

Dress Your Table

With the holiday season in full swing, we turn our attention to the kitchen. Arguably the best part about all the festivities is the food that comes with it. Make sure you're prepared to entertain or get a gift for the foodie in your life! Any food fan would be happy with a gift straight from The Fearrington House kitchen and our jams are no exception. With quirky flavors such as raspberry-thyme or strawberry-vanilla, they make for a fun spin on typical flavors. These are super fresh and... Full Post >

Q&A with Jill Fairchild

We were excited to catch up with Jill Fairchild, for Fairchild|Baldwin, before her trunk show at Dovecote on Saturday, December 5th and Sunday, December 6th. Here is what she shared with us about her exquisite collection! What three words best describe your line? Classic, contemporary, and luxurious. What has been your inspiration this season? We are inspired by everything: architecture, blasts from the past, or simply beautiful colors that we see in everything from landscapes to... Full Post >

The Gift of Style

What do you get for the woman who has everything? A gift from Dovecote Style, of course! For the fashionista in your life, we have got just the thing. A cashmere coat that regulates your temperature and acts as both your sweater and your coat? Check! And available in several colors! The perfect investment piece from Kinross, especially for our fairly mild North Carolina winters. The finest cashmere scarves from Kas, hand loomed and hand dyed in Nepal, in the most beautiful colors... Full Post >

Fairchild|Baldwin at Dovecote

As the buyer for Dovecote Style, I have the daunting (but exciting) task of sorting through a world of accessories each season. Every once in awhile, I am blown away by a design that hits every mark on my checklist and really stands out in the vast sea of options. Fairchild|Baldwin neckwear is at the top of my list this season for its great style (ultra chic and simply gorgeous), its versatility (jeans to cocktails), wearability (clever, clever construction) and most of all, its flatter...

Style Defined: AVANT GARDE

This look at was styled by Cassie. There are a couple things to think about when you creating an avant-garde look. 1) Don't be afraid. Anything goes! 2) Pay attention to texture. Mixing textures is an easy way to take a simple look into the land of adventurous fashion. We love the fun proportions in this outfit, with an ultra suede gaucho pant from Equestrian Designs, Ronen Chen's wool cape and crocodile flats. Cassie threw on a chunky necklace from Dominique Denaive to add... Full Post >
