NEW PRESTON'S 7TH ANNUAL SUMMER STROLL PARTY

GET IT IN YOUR CALENDARS FOLKS! Kicking off the holiday weekend, the Village will once again be festooned from end to end with umbrella'd tables (is that even a word?) serving up delectables of every sort: donut holes at Nine Main Cafe, rose at Privet, pink champagne in vintage French flutes at Dawn Hill, lemon tartlets, Scottish shortbread, peanut butter cupcakes with chocolate...the list goes on! And of course our fabulous White Horse Tavern will be there with trays full of savory goodies!

This is our most popular event of the year! Don't miss it.

RIGHT NOW THROUGH SEPTEMBER 5TH
AT PRIVET LIVES

Our local pop-up shop is hosting the inimitable Norma Kamali, one of the most influential designers in the world of women's fashion. The tiny shop is just stuffed with black & white prints for summer, and they're flying girls! (Sorry for the late notice - it opened on the 24th.)

In a career that has spanned five decades, Kamali has proved a master of invention (parachute clothing and her iconic "sleeping bag coat"), an advocate of ease (languid wash-and-go jersey dressing), and a champion of new construction and technology (think 1940's pin-up style swimwear).
