Spring = Reunion Season!

Ahhh, spring… the flowering trees around town give way to lush green leaves, the chess tables on the Palmer Square Green host lunch breakers soaking up some rays, all of the benches around Palmer Square are occupied by ice cream eaters… and the Princeton Tigers return to town! Spring is reunion season in Princeton!

For those looking to show their PU Pride, you needn’t look further than Palmer Square…

Step 1: get fresh!

After a blow out at Salon Pure, it’s time to hit the square so you can deck yourself out in orange and black err’thang.

Pass by the windows of Brooks Brothers, J. Crew, or Ann Taylor this time of year and you’ll know you’ll find what you’re looking for. Cocktail dresses, dress shirts, and accessories that’ll have you looking smart… the best bets for an outfit that can go from reception to lawn party!

Need some duds for your little Tiger? Toobydoo has colorful and stylish kids’ clothes that I’m just crazy about.

Step 2: Take it all in. There’s a lot of ‘new’ in town – so don’t miss it!

On a swing around Palmer Square you’ll see the newest spots – Miya Tableware (so sweet), and chic clothing stores Nic + Zoe and Roller Rabbit.

Step 3: Pause to re-fuel. Hello, espresso!

Rojo’s Roastery serves some deliciously fresh and frosty iced coffee that will give you the fuel you need for a social whirlwind!

Step 4: You’ll be returning home from Princeton with plenty of fond memories, but you can’t leave without a little memorabilia.

So check out Homestead Princeton before you pack those bags.

In addition to chic, handcrafted Princeton home accessories, we love the line of illustrated dish towels and glassware from Cat Studio as gift ideas. There’s one for every state and major city, so they’re a slam-dunk in the ‘thoughtful gift’ department.
