Announcing One HOT Summer Sale!

July 20, 2010

This morning started our annual Midsummer’s Sale. We’ve recently had a panty sale and participated in the Downtown Mall’s Sidewalk Sale but we’ve had NO sale like this one – 30% off everything in the store! This includes our favorite brands like Lemlem scarves and wraps, Soludos espadrilles and mouille swimwear, which we’ve never had on sale before! All great summer items that you need and want now.

In addition to those great summer items we have all our beautiful lingerie and loungewear on sale too, like this gorgeous set from The Lake and Stars (we also have it in black):

Another great The Lake and Stars piece we have was featured in the “Sex and the City” movie – a great body suit seen on Carrie in the still below:

Along with these two great pieces we have a great selection of Stella McCartney, Elle Macpherson Intimates, Hanro, Mimi Holliday, Damaris, Janet Reger, La Perla, Wendy Glez and Calvin Klein among other fabulous brands. Come check it out and shop online for the sale discount as well!


Daily Candy Loves Soludos (So Do We!)

July 19, 2010

A little over a month ago Derriere de Soie got in the very fabulous Soludos espadrilles. We’ve been raving about then since we got them, and it seems that we aren’t the only ones out there lovin’ these affordable (only $30 a pair!) Mediterranean classics. DailyCandy, one of our favorite, well, daily reads, recently featured them in their New York addition. Lucky for you, you don’t have to go to New York City to get them – we have them right here in Charlottesville, and you can also order them from our site.



We Got “Lucky”

July 16, 2010

A few weeks back our store and our selection of LemLem scarves was mentioned in a blog by one of Lucky Magazine’s editors, who called DDS “very adorable”. We’re elated! Come in for LemLem or find it on our site!

This Just In: New Elle Macpherson Sets

July 12, 2010

At the end of last week we got in two new beautiful Elle Macpherson sets. TheĀ  “Constellations” set is a beautiful dusty rose lace – very romantic! The “Sneak Peek” set is a more modern look at lace, with hot pink tones peeking through gunmetal-colored lace. The back of the “Sneak Peek” bikini is a sheer mesh – thus the name “Sneak Peek”! Check them out here, and stop by our store to buy them or order online!
