All Tied Up with Lemon & Line (Plus a Fab Giveaway for Readers!)

February 29, 2012 at 12:07 am 31 comments

Even if they weren’t made here in Newport, I’d still be a fan of Lemon & Line,  a charming collection of colorful bracelets crafted from authentic sailing rope that are quickly becoming the “it” accessory in the City-by-the-Sea (but they are!). Founder Dave Norton officially launched the line last August to fête his life-long love of sailing. “I grew up cruising on board my family’s Pearson 36 and still actively race and cruise throughout the year,” he says. “Lemon & Line is a subtle way to share that passion with those around us.”

Dave explains the name Lemon & Line was slurred out over a ration of Dark & Stormies one summer night. “The details are a bit foggy, but the name certainly stuck,” he concedes. Since the launch he’s added Newport, Nantucket, Vineyard and Limited Edition collections, and customizes in campus colors. The reaction to Lemon & Line, which he describes as “subtle nautical,” has exceeded expectations. “Way beyond anything I could have ever expected really. People are very excited to see something new and authentic.”

Lemon & Line is available in Newport at Island Outfitters, so you should pop down to check ‘em out, but right now, Dave and the crew is thrilled to host a Lemon & Line giveaway for 3 lucky Newport Stylephile readers. Here’s how to enter:
