Celebrate with Style: She’s a Firecracker!



The 4th of July is almost upon us and we could not be more excited here at Life’s a Beach! Friends, family, hotdogs, hamburgers, sparklers and fireworks; what’s not to love about this holiday?! But there’s no better way to celebrate Independence Day here in Duck than the 4th of July Parade.

In it’s 9th year, ABC named the Duck Parade one of America’s Top 10 Small Town 4th of July Celebrations. This years festivities start at 9:00 am with a concert and community social held directly afterwards at the Duck Town Park. Soak up the sun while listening to music by Ruth Wyand & Friends and watching the awarding of parade trophies.

Don’t forget to stop by Life’s a Beach after the festivities wrap up. We’ll be open all day and our shelves are stocked with all the Tango Orange, Resort White and True Navy you’ll need to celebrate in style! One of our favorite prints this season is She’s a Firecracker. This patriotic staple allows you to show off your pride far past sundown with a firework pattern that glows in the dark!

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.

Late April Happenings @ Life’s A Beach!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and are gearing up for the start of a fabulous summer!

 If you have missed us, here is what the month of April brought ! And it wasn’t showers! (Don’t worry, we always have May flowers at Life’s A Beach!)

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! 

Hope to see all of our wonderful customers soon if we missed you in April!!

It’s Marathon Weekend!


This weekend, one of the greatest events on the Outer Banks will be taking place!  The Outer Banks Marathon, Half Marathon, 8K Run, 5K Run, and the Fun Run start tomorrow, November 13th. We want to wish all the runners good luck and good weather!

We have our very own participant from Life’s A Beach! An avid runner, friend, and wonderful co-worker at Life’s A Beach, Christy Morris, will be running her 3rd half marathon this year.  Next year she hopes to accomplish her goal of running the full marathon in honor of a big birthday ! She’s so full of life and energy and truly amazes us with her loyalty to running every fall; Just after a BUSY summer of loyalty to Lilly Pulitzer and Life’s A Beach! 

In honor of Christy and all the runners this weekend, you’ll receive a printed Lilly Pulitzer Water Bottle when you buy any new item from the Resort 2010 line!
