Spring. The word itself is magic. It’s time for sunny days, fresh local food, and short sleeves. It’s time for new looks, unique home decor, and a little bit of inspiration for your next adventure. To kick off Spring in Lancaster, we created a guide for all the Modern Gentlemen out there. We hope you find our ideas inspiring, our recommendations helpful, and our new products as exciting as we do.
1. Farmer’s Markets
It’s no secret, Central Market is the best place to get fresh fruits, produce, and meats in Lancaster, PA. Check out Meck’s for their hydroponic lettuce, Maplehofe Dairy for fresh local milk, and Wendy Jo’s for a sweet finish. Bring the whole family to make the most of a market adventure.
2. Fire Up The Grill
Take your market bounty home and fire up the grill. One of our favorite ways to spice up our dishes is with Calicutt’s Fire Salt. This handcrafted spice blend achieves the perfect combination of fruity, savory, and spicy elements to spruce up your next steak.
3. Get Active Again
If you need a reason to be active again, now is the time. Get motivated with one of Lancaster’s annual road races through our historic city. This year the Race Against Racism is celebrating 20 years! It’s been a staple of our community for decades and the perfect way to take a stand against racism.
1. Shwood Sunglasses
Shwood’s distinctive looks combine wood and acetate to keep you looking on point. The company was founded in 2009 in Portland, Oregon, with a focus on innovation, and has since pioneered over 15 new materials in the eyewear industry.
2. United By Blue Shirt
New for Spring 2018 is our selection of apparel from United By Blue, our favorite neighbor in Philadelphia. Get your hands on first-rate shirts, jackets, and shorts from a company with a mission. For every product sold, United By Blue removes one pound of trash from our world's oceans and waterways.
3. SeaVees Sneakers
While we love a good pair of boots, when we discovered the SeaVees brand of sneakers we couldn’t wait to get them in the shop. This California based company delivers a classic sneaker design with modern sophistication for effortless style any day of the week.
It’s not just about Spring cleaning, this time of year is about refreshing your home’s decor. Here are a few of our new favorites to provide vibrant vibes to your abode.
Time to put the whiskey down for a moment. Spring calls for refreshing cocktails that can be enjoyed with (fingers crossed) the sunshine on your face. We love this Italian Greyhound recipe from our Cocktail Deck. Cheers to Spring!
