Hello, Lover! Rib & Rhein’s Newest Addition…

Rib and Rhein show lover

As local fashion fans know, Rib & Rhein opened in Newport in 2008, but this past summer, owners Erin and Thomas Ribeiro ceremoniously cut the ribbon to their new second floor for a combined 4000 sq. ft. of luxury retail space. Among other gems, the additions include the “Shoe Lovers Salon,” with each pair chosen specifically for the discerning Newport shopper.

Years ago, I wrote a story on Newport for Daily Candy describing the shop as a place where “Tribeca and St. Barths collide,” and it still rings true. Featured designers for men and women at Rib & Rhein include Marc Jacobs, Psycho Bunny, Etro, ISSA, Roberto Cavalli, Victoria Beckham, Turnbull & Asser, and more. The couple say they plan to add even more coveted lines including Prada, Isabel Marant, Marni, Givenchy, Tom Ford Beauty, YSL beauty, Gucci, Versace, Christopher Kane, The Row, St. Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Victor & Rolf, D Squared, Christian Louboutin, and Hermes. The boutique is located at 86 William Street in Newport.

Deals & Steals: WinterFest 2012 Edition

I can report that the Kristina Richards Annual Blow-out Sale is worth a trip to the trendy Washington Square boutique where you’ll find up to 75% off. Instead of sale racks being in the center of the store per a usual KR sale, the whole store is marked down. I’m talking $350+ dresses by Shoshanna, Milly and more for $75, spotted some tops for $25 (which I’ll be going back for today), jeans from DL 1961, Rich & Skinny, Seven and J Brand, and pieces from Alice + Olivia (pictured above), T-bags (so soft!), Splendid, Ella Moss (rarely seen on sale), Free People, Bailey 44 and more (wear something easy to change in and out of because you might set up camp in the dressing room)! PS: Check out some of the amazing shoes and bikinis on sale too!

While there, pop into Karma consignment shop next door, where all clothing is 50% off and you’ll find labels like Givenchy, Prada, Carmen Marc Valvo and more.

If you’re looking for some inspiration to keep that New Year’s Resolution going, stop into Potter & Co. where you’ll find a lot of great pieces with big markdowns that are perfect for yoga, Pilates, running, snowboarding and all outdoor pursuits. Speaking of performance gear, Patagonia on Thames has some of their signature pieces marked 40%-60% off.

Looking for a little posh and polished looks for the little ones? Mimi’s for Kids on Touro Street near Bellevue has slashed prices that are just too cute for your pint-sized fashionistas.

J. McLaughlin on Bellevue also has some killer sales on pieces you can wear all year long. Nearby, Wish is marking down tons of designer duds by Chloe, Tahari, Tory Burch, BCBG, and Rib & Rhein has a great blend of sale pieces and new arrivals.

At Pink Pineapple, buy 1 get 1 50% off all jewelry in the Newport store only as well as a huge blow-out sale with 50% off clothing (check out the new spring arrivals too!) The Portsmouth Pink Pineapple, meanwhile, is loaded with all new resort and spring clothing! Speaking of Portsmouth, Stalise is honoring President’s Day by inviting shoppers to take an extra 25% off sale merchandise (which is already a steal). Note: they’re closed Sunday so get in today.

Tropical Gangsters on Thames Street is having their $10, $20, $30 sale where you’ll find pieces at those prices throughout the store, so stock up on your “going out” gear.

Frugal Fashionistas Unite!

This is an amazing time of year for frugal fashionistas as many weeks of winter lie ahead (well, winter has been subjective so far, if you consider there hasn’t even been need for a heavy coat this weekend…) and prices are being slashed left and right to make room for spring merchandise. I popped into J. McLaughin to check out their sale (you’ll find up to 75% off a nice selection of pieces) and while there, a watched a customer  spent less than $250 on more than $700 woth of merchandise! The best part is, a lot of J. McL offers timeless patterns  and lightweight but durable fabrics, rendering them wearable throughout the year. That means your CPW (cost per wear, fasionistas) will be off the charts! Though a decidedly winter look, you can channel your inner Rachel Zoe with their totally fauxbulous “fur” vest. Paired with strech pants, riding pants or a skinny jean, it’s a fun (but cruelty-free!) piece. Also loving the new arrival of printed Aken totes (seen in the above illustration)—a carry all that is a J. McL staple and is roomy enough for a laptop and just about everything else (tip: the shop will be happy to have it sent out and monogrammed for you for just an additional $20). The nylon fabric is long-lasting and the leather straps boast attractive, gold latch hardware (and feet, to help the bag stand and stay sturdy).

Check out this and more SUPER SALES at Rib & Rhein, Wish, Potter & Co., Chace n’LuLu, Karol Richardson, and more!
