Layers for Days (and Nights!) with Tee Lab by Frank & Eileen

Summer is finally here! But before we go rushing out into the sunshine with no jacket, we have to remember that it still is getting pretty cool in the evenings. That’s why we love Tee Lab by Frank & Eileen! Their layers are perfect to keep you feeling cute and comfortable throughout the day, from 60 degree mornings to 80 degree afternoons to 50 degree nights. Pair with your favorite Golden Goose sneakers or sandals by K Jacques or Ancient Greek and you can dress up or down your Tee Lab layers.

We have to be honest, we’ve fallen in love with Tee Lab at La Ree. We love the versatility, the comfort, the unique cuts of skirts and dresses, and the way we can mix and match our pieces to create a new look every time.

We’ve chosen a few of our favorite pieces currently available now at La Ree. Come by to mix and match a few of your favorites!

Bright Summer Whites

Can we first just say how happy we are that we don’t have to follow these “no whites before Memorial Day. No whites after Labor Day” rules any more? Winter whites have been a welcome addition to our dark grey, green, brown, black winter wardrobes. We are more than happy to extend white’s season beyond the sunniest of summer days. Still, white is a classic summer color. It could be called THE color of summer. How can we separate white from memories of beaches, big floppy hats, mimosas in the sunshine, and lots of seafood? It’s always part of our ideal summer picture.

In celebration of all things summer, we’re getting out our sunglasses and cocktails a little early this year and picking out our favorite summer whites.

Mothers Day Shopping Event

Mother’s Day Shopping Event!

La Ree is thrilled to honor mothers this Friday with our Mother’s Day Shopping Event! How could we not be? La Ree is only possible with our wonderful staff of new, current, and future moms. And we love spending time and talking with all the moms who walk through our door every day. We know what it means to be a mother and we are so thankful for all the moms in our life. That’s why, this Friday, May 12 from 10am to 5pm, we will be hosting a Mother’s Day Shopping Event at La Ree featuring two incredible brands that have stunning pieces perfect for a last minute Mother’s Day gift, or a treat for yourself!

la ree mothers day event cover

Never Ready for Monday is an adorable, simple, and stylish home brand that was started by two sisters who never felt ready for Monday (who does?) and preferred “bedhead over boardroom.” They decided to create a home store filled with pieces that make your home your sanctuary. Like they say on their website, “this store was created to inspire you, to be that perfect gift you’ve been hunting for, or maybe that little bit of “fluff” you’ve been needing to make your place feel more like home.” We can’t wait to have them in store as part of our upcoming event.

Serpentine Jewelry is a stunning brand that we have in store throughout the year. We cannot wait to show off even more of their pieces at the event on Friday. Each of their pieces is timeless and made with a combination of precious and semi-precious stones paired with natural minerals. Their jewelry fuses “everyday elegance with a natural twist.” Our favorite part about the brand? You can layer several pieces together or wear each piece alone. Plus, their jewelry has that rare versatility to go from day to night with grace.

And, of course, we will also be featuring some of our favorite La Ree pieces for Mother’s Day! We’ve pulled a few of our favorites for Mother’s Day to spark a little shopping inspiration for the upcoming holiday. AND—right now, you can get 20% off one item in store at La Ree through the month of May*! What better excuse to treat yourself or upgrade your mom’s gift than a little extra off?

Ready for Summer Vacay!

The sun has been shining these last few days, Friday is Cinco de Mayo, and as it gets closer to the end of the school year, we’re feeling that summer vacay itch! Only adding to our impatience to get out and celebrate the warm weather are all the cute summer dresses and light summer pants we have in store right now.

Summer in Seattle is no doubt the best time of year to be here (shhh, don’t tell!). If you’re spending your summer walking on the newly updated Seattle waterfront, on a boat in Lake Washington, or ferrying across the sound to a cute island getaway, the beauty of the season is undeniable. And a big part of enjoying the season is the opportunity to get out your sandals, your sunglasses, and your favorite summer looks. If you’re like us, you’ll need new ones every year to celebrate the return of the sun!

Sometimes, getting outside isn’t quite enough. You need to get out of the city, out of the country. If you’re jetting off to somewhere tropical and sunny for your summer vacay, you’ll want to stock up on comfortable, easy-to-pack, outfits that will keep you cool and stylish throughout your travels.

We’ve picked out a few of our favorite summer dresses and light summer pants that are perfect for a day on the lake or a week out of the country. Available in store and online now!

Denim Spotlight

Jeans have a long and colorful history in fashion dating back to the 1860’s and the California Gold Rush. Starting out as clothing for workers, and then evolving into a rebellious fashion statement, jeans are now an everyday basic that we all love to wear. It is said that Yves Saint-Laurent wished he had created the blue jean because they “are expressive and discreet, they have sex appeal and simplicity,-everything I could want for the clothes I design.” 

It wasn’t until the 1930’s when Vogue ran an advertisement featuring two women in tight-fitting jeans and called it “Western Chic” that denim became a sought-after fashion statement. By the mid-1930’s, shoppers could find denim in major department stores.

Today, we are thankful for this versatile fashion trend. We are in love with the different colors, cuts, and styles of denim. And we love styling outfits with them! Denim is one of those rare pieces that can be dressed up or down, be worn on the weekends, or during the work week, out with friends, or out on a fancy date. Jeans are part of our fashion DNA.

Accessories that Make the Outfit

Oscar de le Renta once said, “A woman makes an outfit her own with accessories,” and we couldn’t agree more. Accessories are your pieces of style that can dress up or dress down a look, add your unique touch, and make getting dressed that much more fun!

In store, we love playing with accessories and pulled a few of our favorites that will add that extra je ne sais quoi to you look all summer long. Check out these options, then come by the store to play with a finding the perfect combination to make each outfit truly your own.

Designer Spotlight: Spinelli Kilcollin

Spinelli Kilcollin Trunk Show

Tomorrow we are excited to be hosting one of our favorite jewelry brands for a trunk show at La Ree Boutique as part of our 10 Year Anniversary Party. The brand, which was founded by Yves Spinelli and is manufactured and designed in Los Angeles, California, is a stunning minimalist statement of clean architectural lines. Spinelli started the brand with a set of interlocking rings of various sizes that were designed to be worn stacked or across multiple fingers. From here, the brand was born.

Virgo Galaxy Ring from the Core Collection

A career in fashion was a natural path for Spinelli, born to parents who were hair stylists. After he moved to LA, he worked for several years at Maxfield Bleu, where he was a store manager and top sales person. Working at the boutique inspired him to create his own line of jewelry.

Venus Rose from the Stellar Collection

Maxfield would be where he would launch his first line of jewelry. Over time, Spinelli began integrating diamonds into his designs and was then asked to create a custom piece for Ikram Goldman, which included 5k of diamonds. This piece resulted in national coverage of the line, getting the attention of larger brands that now were interested in carrying his stunning line. Today, the Spinelli Kilcollin line can be found across the country in department stores and boutiques.

Beyond rings, the Spinelli Kilcollin line also includes bracelets, earrings, and more.
