   Nanette Lepore is a beautiful ultra-chic clothing store decorated with birdcages, hanging white chandeliers, and pink wooden floors. The fancy boutique sells women’s wear, jewelry, handbags, and shoes. The designer collections are not the ordinary selection but frilly finds with lace and ruffles and very feminine pieces that have attracted a celebrity following such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Uma Thurman and Drew Barrymore. The Nanette Lepore collection is also popular with television and film stylists and was featured on Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde 2, Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City, and on Jennifer Garner in 13 Going on 30. If you are looking for a unique embroidered coat you’ll find it here. The store sells A-line skirts in every color as well as a selection of bath and body products. I recommend picking up a bottle of Nanette Lepore’s classic Eau de Parfum Spray. It comes in such a pretty pink bottle and the sweet rose floral smell is so nice and light. I get the fragrance in the hand cream too. The store has two annual sales to mark your calendar for, one post summer, one post winter. The Nanette Lepore collection can also be found at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and most upscale department stores.
   Nanette Lepore is open Mon thru Sat, 11am-7pm and Sun from noon-6pm.
