Unless you’re in the tax bracket that takes the “Lexus December to Remember Sales Event” seriously, you probably have a budget to keep ion mind as you Christmas shop. That’s why I’ve highlighted some fab affordable stocking stuffers you can find in Newport that I think any gift getter would be happy to unwrap.
If there’s one sunny side to summer heading towards it’s final weeks, it’s the end-of-season sales here in Newport. These are just some of the fabulous fashion and accessories I found in the super-chic City-by-the-Sea that’s ON SALE so I had to bring the loot to The Rhode Show this morning:

Even the heartiest New Englander groans at forecasts that include word like “arctic” and “frigid,” and with more than 30″ of fallen snow in Newport this season, a mid-winter getaway is sounding just about heavenly. No fashion line is more bright and sunny than Lilly Pulitzer, and the following sneak peek at the Spring 2013 collection will inspire warm thoughts for the promise of spring. Pieces from the collection will be arriving at Island Outfitters soon, and with JetBlue’s new daily service to sunny Florida from T.F. Green, you can have that piña colada with the sand between your toes in a snap!
Lilly Pulitzer and Newport go together like peas and carrots, so what better way to build your LP wardrobe than when these timeless pieces are on super-sale! I scored a few great deals and am anxiously awaiting my pink package to arrive on the doorstep.
There’s a range of inventory and sizes left, and Lilly is still offering free shipping. CLICK HERE to get started. Shop on, my friends!
Is that Lilly Pulitzer? On clearance? It was instead, Ann Taylor, but it was equally lovely and a bargain at $10. I found this little dirt cheap gem at the newly opened Labels for Less in Middletown (next to Custom House Coffee on Aquidneck Avenue). The shop (formerly known at Sportswear, etc.) relocated from Portsmouth and has some great staples (khakis for him, comfy sweats, t-shirts, jeans) from brands including Ralph Lauren, J. Jill, Eddie Bauer, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Woolrich and more.
Considering the forecast, the women’s water resistant New Englander Rain Jacket by Charles River (at right) might come in handy for just $49.99 (x-small—3XL), and it comes in toddler and youth sizes as well for $29.99.
Loved the men’s flat front (thank God!) Ralph Lauren Polo Chino in khaki, stone and navy (sz. 34-42) for just $28 and the men’s Woolrich 3x dry cotton dobby long-sleeve shirt (water repellent, quick dry, stain resistant…virtually indestructible) for $29.99. Prices are already low, and right now you’ll find steeper discounts as part of the end of summer clearance!
Last Thursday, in the throes of the Campbell’s Tennis Hall of Fame Championships, Angela Moore hosted her 12th Annual Fashion Show & Champagne Breakfast. The buzz was already at record levels with Andre Agassi‘s and Peachy Kellmeyer‘s pending inductions, but the biggest fashion show in its history added to the high spirits.
As the bubbly flowed, unabashedly preppy and signature City-by-the-Sea looks for men, women and children strutted the runway, all reflecting the theme of this year’s show, “Summer Fashions … Newport Style!” Three sets were presented: Daytime Dazzle, Fun in the Sun and Moonlight Magic (evening wear).
The event grossed more than $30,000 in proceeds that will go towards maintaining and enhancing the International Tennis Hall of Fame, bringing the total raised through the Angela Moore fashion shows to over $250,000. Without further adieu, here’s some great shots from the show (see even more photos after the jump)!

I have a sneaking suspicion that over the course of the holiday weekend, the Dark ‘n Stormys were flowing at local watering holes including the Clarke Cooke House, @ The Deck, The Black Pearl and many more—made with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum (recipe below). It may be Bermuda’s National Drink, but the cocktail is one of Newport’s favorites, which is why when the brand partnered with Lilly Pulitzer for a custom-designed print featured on pieces in the Summer 2011 collection, the two seemed like a match made in heaven.
The collection includes Lilly’s original shift dress with embroidered embellishments, a pair of short shorts (3” inseam), an a-line skirt, and a killer tote (that flew off shelves super quick to the point where they’re now considered a rare find). Select pieces available at Newport’s Island Outfitters. Also, if you like Lilly, you’ll love the Angela Moore Fashion Show & Champagne Breakfast on Thursday morning–click here for the skinny!
