The other evening I had the pleasure of exploring a very special, paper and gift boutique rightfully named “Lovely.”  The store is filled with tons of natural light, wonderful style, beautiful treasures and greeting cards aplenty.

If you are like me and love a good letterpress or gold foil this is the mecca of delightful social expressions perfect for any birthday, graduation, shower or everyday/anytime greeting.

Owner, Kate Fortney has curated the perfect selection of “pick-me-ups” for every fashionista in your life…think, Kate Spade and Lilly Pulitzer. She also has an amazing selection of coffee table design and decor books, adorable little gifts for expectant moms and teeny, tiny babies and don’t forget the spring/summer showers and weddings; the perfect destination for any memorable gift.

While I quickly stopped in to check out the new boutique and visit with the pretty wallpaper…I walked away with a yummy scented candle for an upcoming bridal shower, a pretty belated Rifle Paper Co. birthday card and don’t forget a little something for myself…a new Ms. Spade insulated water cup that I will pack with me in my overnight hospital bag for when it is time to have this little bambino on board.

I was also drawn to the selection of stylish reading glasses and while I don’t need them now, I’m sure some of you could use a stylish pair for work, home or your car…they are so darn cute. Why not grab two styles for spring.

So get yourself an iced latte and plan to wander around this gem of a shop for awhile. All the sparkle and shimmer will bring a smile to any typical day!
