We’re in love with the Cassie Dress!
There are so many things about this week’s Store of the Week that embody the Lilly spirit- the waterfront location, the beautiful & colorful store, the pink & green oversized “critter” out front of their store (you’ll just have to visit to find out what we mean by that!), the energetic & fabulous store staff and even their store name- Life’s A Beach! And who can argue with that?!
Come find us!
The Waterfront Shops
1240 Duck Rd,
Duck, NC – Outer Banks
Store hours- 9:30am – 9pm, 6 days a week, 10am – 6pm Sundays, in-season!
Our store history: Life’s A Beach first opened their doors in 2001, nestled into a small space in the northern Outer Banks Beach town of Corolla. The store was starting to grow out of its space, when an opening became available in the Water Front Shops in Duck. Life’s A Beach owners Mary & Brendan Magner, soon made the move southward to open in its current location overlooking the beautiful waters of the Currituck Sound. After an expansion, and other renovations over the years, Life’s A Beach continues to be THE one stop shop for all your Resort Chic needs on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
This April we participated in several special events, including a trunk show, two charity events, and still to come, the annual Duck N Wine Festival!
We kicked off the month with a Trunk Show especially for a group of lovely ladies at The Connelly School of the Holy Child in Potomac, MD. They shopped their Lilly hearts out for all of their upcoming functions such as Graduation, Easter, and Mother/Daughter Brunch. We have to say the teachers and staffed faired pretty well too! A portion of the sales went back to the school to support their ongoing academic events.
Also in the DC area this month, we set up shop as one of the boutiques at the DC Design House Event. The DC Design House is the regions foremost annual residential design attraction, and is a leading fundraising event for Children’s National Medical Center. The owner of Life’s A Beach is an active board member of the Children’s Medical Center and was very involved with the event. Guests from all over the area were welcomed by the home’s unique designer contributions, plus a collection of boutiques. A percentage of sales were donated to the event and the Children’s National Medical Center.
After a bit of traveling to and from the DC area, we came home to a very busy Easter week! On Friday 4/22 and Saturday 4/23, we hosted a Shop N Share event to benefit the Roanoke Island SPCA! With the help of beautiful weather and our caring customers, we were able to adopt out 3 dogs and a kitten! Plus the SPCA will be getting a nice size donation check from Life’s A Beach as a percentage of sales from both days will go to assist in the needs of the organization. Well Done!
Still to come this weekend, April 30th, the Annual Duck N Wine Fest! Hosted by Coastal Provisions. Between 12 and 3 on Saturday, the Waterfront Shops will be transformed into a culinary delight! 20 + restaurants will pair their duck preparation with a chosen wine. Great food, great wine, live music, and a raffle at the end! Cheers to the end of April!
