Even thought the storefront has been closed, we have been busy prepping in the store to reopen on Friday, April 30th! 
Currently, the store is completely torn apart! We painted the shelving and are changing up some of the sections, along with the layout of the shop! When you come in this Spring, you will see so many NEW displays! The baby section is being completely refreshed and updated and we can’t wait for you to see it! 
We have received so many orders, especially a HUGE one from Mud Pie, which has so many goodies for Spring + Summer that you are going to LOVE! New orders from vendors keep on coming, so make sure to check out the website often, as items are added to the website almost daily!
After Easter a few employees begin working again and then we go at full speed ahead to get all three stores ready for Opening Day!
Garden Cart
You can see in the Garden Cart, we have been SO busy mailing out online goodies all winter long! Thank you so much for your continued support! 
 
We are so glad we can ship Little Luxuries to you year round! 
Keep shopping the website and we’ll see you in the shop on April 30th!!

This week, Andrew and I have been in St. Augustine, Florida with the boys. It has been so fun to see a new spot and to just get away from the cold for a little bit! Plus, we have not been away on vacation since November 2019! 
Since I’m at the beach, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite beachy items we currently have available on the online store + a few things I love to have with me when I go to the beach! 

 

I love these two new dresses that we got in for spring / summer! They are so nice to just throw on when it's warmer outside or even over a swim suit! Shop the light blue one and navy here!
There's always a need for a tiny toiletry bag or pouch when traveling. I love both of these- the silicone one is fun and bright, while the clear ones help me see that I remembered to pack everything without digging through the pouch! 
Of course, I've packed my pouches FULL of items from the Bath & Body section! Including my favorite lotion from Farmhouse Fresh, called Whoopie Cream. We're currently out of that one but we do have another one I love called Sweet Tea Shea Butter in stock that is amazing
This Shea Butter whip is a jarful of refreshment! You'll be tempted to sip this creamy, supple shea butter that calms even the severest of dry skin. Scented like a southern sweet tea with peach, ginger, and white tea - a light herbal treat!
We can never be at the beach without sunscreen, with our fair skin! I packed the ThinkBaby sunscreen that has been great! BONUS! It's on sale over on the website here.
Of course, lip balm! I usually forget to pack this on vacation, but was so glad I remembered to throw it in my bag! Shop our favorite Green Daffodil Lip Balm Here! It has SPF in it too!
Wax-free soy lip balms include vitamin E and SPF 15, which penetrates into your skin for extra care and long lasting protection to ward off dry lips. Use only essential or flavor oils to scent our lip balm, so they are safe. A unique oval shape tube to keep your lip balm from rolling off your desk or night stand and they also fit nicely into your pocket.

Never forget to pack a hat! Especially one that represents our favorite spot! Shop my favorite Mackinac hat here! 
Finally, guess what I packed in? 
My new favorite tote! I'm so excited about this burlap bag. It's been perfect for the beach! You can shop for it here!
This week at the beach has been so much fun! I hope you've been following along in my Instagram stories as I've shared a little what we're up to! If you have a beach vacation coming up soon, enjoy shopping this list as you start to pack!
xo,
Nicole
