Local shops in Greenwich



Lillian August

Design Destination

Seeking fresh style for your home? A favorite design resource, lillian august, has reopened in Greenwich with a bright, airy store on the Post Road. “It’s great to be back in town,” says Dan Weiss, president and chief executive officer. “The new store is a window into the world of Lillian August, featuring a lot of our own product. We love the space; it’s got great light.” The well-edited store, punctuated with bold lighting fixtures and colorful accents, is divided into two zones: an upper level that features a more distressed, lived-in feel with fur throws, one-of-a-kind tables and a few antiques; and a lower level that showcases some of the company’s exclusive collections, such as Lillian August’s elegant classics and Michael Weiss’s modern pieces. Among the head-turning furniture in Lillian’s collection: the white Andrea king four-poster bed dressed up in Libeco linens. The bed is available in different finishes, just as many pieces throughout the store can be customized—some sofas can be ordered to a specific length and finished in a range of fabrics with a variety of nail heads.

Though Lillian August has designers on staff, they also work closely with the local design trade. Experienced staff can handle design requests of any scope—whether you’re hunting for a few pillows or lamps or working with a designer on a top-to-bottom home makeover. If you want to glam up your powder room before the holidays or you need a fun hostess gift, check out the huge accessory wall, a stylish display of finishing touches: candles, home fragrances, frames, throws, ceramic buddhas, tote bags and more.

Sports Luxe

Yes, it’s possible to look cool while working out, even forty minutes into your SoulCycle ride or Bikram yoga class. British active-wear brand sweaty betty (as seen on Pippa Middleton) just opened a boutique featuring luxe sports clothing designed to be both technical and stylish—gear like a quick-drying printed tank that pulls moisture off your skin and has a fully vented back. Sweaty Betty was founded in Notting Hill, London, by Tamara Hill-Norton, whose goal it was to help women “find empowerment through fitness.” The line just launched stateside with a store in SoHo followed by the Greenwich Avenue shop, which has a spa-like feel, nautical accents and a sizeable in-store studio. Every Tuesday morning at 8:30, a fitness pro from Exhale teaches a complimentary class that combines barre, Pilates and yoga with all equipment provided; the class schedule is expected to expand in the coming months. What to wear? Dynamic leggings, which can be ruched up to wear as capris, are especially popular for yoga. Other coveted pieces include the Bonded Run Tank, the thermal-lined Chill Resist Run Top with reflective seaming and a loop that holds your headphones, Astro Ski Overalls (yes, they carry ski gear too), and the SoHo Sweat cropped French terry sweatshirt for lounging.
