Spring Red Haute at Helena's.


Red Haute has sent us a lovely collection of spring transition tops.  This line excels at the denim friendly top that you go to again and again!  We will expand our offering of this line in the later spring with great striped dresses!

Susana Monaco dresses are at Helena's!

The chic and brilliantly designed Susana Monaco dress line is at Helena's.  SM is known for their stretchy fabrics, and incredibly flattering styles that hold together like a dream.   The perfect go-to dress for any occasion, casual to dressy.  These are two of the four styles we have in store now.  For more on Susana Monaco, go to their website, here.

Chic styles and brilliant color from Wooden Ships!

Wooden Ships has fresh new designs in their signature "grassy knit" yarn for spring.  The Ali tunic at left is scoopneck open knit tunic in a bright blue called Atlantic.  The crocheted Ruana at right has a dolman sleeve and a boatneck.  We have the Ruana  in Watermelon and a navy blue called Marine.  We also have an ever-so-soft knit poncho in a Gravel.  Wear then with jeans and boots now and transition these sweaters to white denim and skirts in May!

Black lace for day to night from Velvet.

Lace continues to be a huge and beautiful trend thru spring transition and into spring and summer.  This top from Velvet is what I like to call a "big" lace print, which give you just enough skin showing thru.  We have it in black as shown.  Wear it with denim or a pencil skirt.  

Chic new tops from Velvet arrive at Helena's.

These lovely tops just arrived from Velvet.  The Aubin is an embroidered top that we have in ash, as shown.  The Bonita is a soft knit peasant blouse that you will want to wear everyday.  We have the Bonita in white.

Our window will knock your socks off!

There was a buzz of activity in the store this morning as everyone came in to try on the pieces in our window.  Jessica has created a lovely spring layout!  From the top: blue bird print top from Tulle, Effie's Heart print dress with Prairie Underground long cloak hoody, blue bird print dress from Tulle, poppy bird print top from Tulle, and (be still my heart) leather wristlets and snap purse in heart print from Fossil.  How gorgeous is all this?  If you love the bird print pieces from Tulle, come in soon to purchase.  We tried to reorder this styles and they are already sold out from Tulle.  See you this weekend!

Helena's Spring Transition: Aqua & Coral

Every January, as we put the fall and winter styles on sale, a beautiful array of spring transition starts to trickle into the store.  This season the colors are brilliant and fantastic.  The most vivid colors for early spring are aqua and coral, but with an array of shade that go from copper to turquoise.  Think of the blue green patina on copper and your head will be in the right place.  From the top: print top from Sanctuary, crochet sweater from Hazel, laminated bags from Fossil, and a rich candle and accessory table.

Fresh nail color for spring transition!

We may be calling the present season "winter", but the folks at the NY Intermezzo fashion show call this season "spring transition".  So, while we are currently wearing cozy cashmere sweaters in deep winter hues or creamy winter whites, the boxes that are coming into Helena's are full of the colors for the spring to come.  Let's take a moment to appreciate a frosty warm plum nail color that looks fresh in winter, and will take you into the spring brights.  Margate Maroon (#450) is my new fav from No Miss cosmetics.  Find it at Whole Foods for $7.99.
