Always Summer: More than just clothes
“It’s about the complete shopping experience. It’s about having a glass of wine while browsing a beautiful selection of ready-to-wear clothing and unique gifts.”
Always Summer seeks to give you a more immersive shopping experience. “Moving into a bigger space has been a dream”, says owner Sharon Oran. “We want our clients to have a wider selection of styles and we want to feature more gift items and homeware products from many different countries, including our very own Barbados. You may come in to try on shoes or a dress, but you could well leave with a journal or Anna Fraser bag.” The new space is easily accessible on the ground floor of Limegrove Lifestyle Centre. The mother and daughter owners are inspired by loving, authentic brands and organic accents. They owe the design and aesthetic of the boutique to their close friend and talented interior designer, Sophie Domenge (www.latelierdesophiebarbados.com).
SMILE, WE’VE GOT WINE
“It’s about the complete shopping experience. It’s about having a glass of wine while browsing a beautiful selection of ready-to-wear clothing and unique gifts.” Barbados is more than just white sand and crystal clear water. The ecosystem of forward thinking business owners creates an environment where tourists and locals alike can indulge in a complete shopping adventure. Sit down and enjoy a glass of sauvignon blanc with a local cheese platter featuring seasonal farm-to-table ingredients, like brie-goat cheese and guava chutney. The wines are purposely selected and supplied by Platinum Wines and the small bites are prepared by incredibly talented local chefs known for their culinary creativity in the kitchen.
LAUGH A LATTE
Local isn’t a trend, it’s a lifestyle. This is why the Always Summer Café features coffee by Wyndham Coffee (www.wyndhams.bb). These Bajan crafted roasters are known for their locally roasted beans and Italian espresso coffee. Coffee with a friend is capturing happiness in a cup. Sharon’s first ever cup of coffee was at the Wyndham office. Although she’d usually opt for a glass of Prosecco, after one taste she was sold. “Our dream for Always Summer is to create a naturally beautiful experience where you can shop, sip, and smile.” Visit Always Summer at Limegrove Lifestyle Centre to do just that and visit their Facebook page to stay involved in the on-going conversation about what to expect next.
