Mother’s Day is just around the corner…and just in case you’ve waited until the last minute to buy the special mom in your life a gift, I’ve put together a list of Larchmont shops to help you find her the perfect gift that I know she’ll love.
Located just two doors south of Melrose Avenue at 658 N Larchmont Blvd, Ampersand Boutique is a resale boutique with vintage & designer apparel, modern pieces, shoes & accessories.
I’ve found some really great pieces here over the years and love never knowing what they’ll have in stock when I pop in. They offer a variety of services, including house calls, styling for events, scouting for specialty items, or helping select one-of-a-kind gifts. Their website states: If you are looking for something special, please give us a call and we will happily start pulling some beauties for you!
**Please note: Ampersand will have a big moving sale at the current location starting on Monday, May 6th and extending through Friday the 11th. The store will move on May 13th, and will open at its new location at 7424 Beverly Blvd (at Vista) on May 16th.
Village Heights is a local gem stocked with gifts that are sure to please all the special women in your life. I always run in here when I’m looking for a gift as they’re almost right below my office, which is so handy, but more importantly they’ve got a lot of items at different price points. It’s one of my favorite stops on the Boulevard. Village Heights is located at 122 1/2 N Larchmont Blvd.
Another great option is Pickett Fences at 219 N Larchmont Blvd…a lifestyle boutique offering casual contemporary clothing for women and men, lingerie, pajamas, accessories, jewelry, books, candles, baby gifts, cards and much more. I love the mix of clothing and gifts in this boutique and I always fail to leave without buying something…you’ve been warned 🙂
Located at 202 N Larchmont Blvd is the Paris-based luxury goods company Diptyque. The shop carries a high-end line of scented candles, perfumes, face and body care. The Baies Candle is one of their most popular candles and also one of my favorites.
I could spend hours in here just “sniffing” my way through their range and they are incredibly helpful and friendly which is a nice bonus too. A scented candle is a classic go to as a gift, but when it’s from Diptyque it’s definitely a little more special…in my humble opinion.
And finally there’s Trina Turk boutique at 212 N Larchmont Blvd…known for their colorful bold prints and yearlong summertime designs. The store houses Trina Turk women’s ready-to-wear and accessories, the swim & spa collection, and Mr Turk menswear.
I’ll admit that I have three swimsuits from here. Yup. Three of them. Whenever I walk by here on my way to grab a coffee I always take a moment to eye their colorful window displays and no matter what the time of year it makes me dream of sunny days and traveling.
Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day! 🙂
