Store of the Week – Ocean Palm

Posted on May 9, 2011 in More Fun by | 2 comments

Virginia is for Lilly Lovers.  (we thought Virginia’s state slogan was missing a little something) And that’s why Ocean Palm’s owner, Janet Lane-Robert’s, opened her first Lilly Pulitzer signature store- so Virginia Lilly Lovers had a place to buy their Lilly! We’re happy to feature her original location as this week’s Store of the Week…

Location: La Promenade Shoppes, 1860 Laskin Rd.
Virginia Beach, VA 23454

Store hours: Monday-Wednesday 10-6, Thursday 10-7, Saturday 10-6, Sunday 12-5

A little background: Janet had previously owned a high end children’s consignment shop in Northern Virginia and as her own daughter grew older, Emily fell in love with Lilly Pulitzer. Janet knew then she had to open her very own Lilly store!  Their doors opened in 2004 in the La Promenade shopping center of Virginia Beach, VA. Ocean Palm is the only specialty shop in Virginia Beach selling the Lilly Pulitzer brand. Throughout our 7 years of business, we have established great customer relationships with the local Lilly Lovers. In 2008, we opened our second location in Merchant Square, Colonial Williamsburg, and launched our website.

Favorite Product from the Spring 11 delivery: The Blossom Dress in Hotty Pink First Impression (Summer 2011 just arrived so we haven’t picked a favorite yet!!)

About our town/shopping center: La Promenade Shoppes is an upscale shopping center located in the heart of Hilltop.

Our store is unique because: Lilly is a unique brand on its own and people wished their stores were brightly colored as ours!

Did you know…That the Owner of Ocean Palm is British and from Gloucestershire England.

Yay!! My little mini and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ocean Palm!!! They are fabulous and are always so welcoming and wonderful!! I needed a smaller size in the Callahan short, which the Merchant Square Ocean Palm had, and the wonderful ladies of Ocean Palm VB said the would have it driven down and available later that evening! I was heading to Williamsburg though so I said I would pick it up then (also a chance to check out the M.S. Ocean Palm!)

Point being….They go above and beyond for their customers!!!

Thanks a ton Ocean Palm!!

Ocean Palm is a great Lilly store. AND they have a smaller sister store in Williamsburg VA., just off of Duke of Gloucester Street ! Try it out too.
