Summer Fashions All Around Us

For Fabulous Finds - Shop Small, Buy Local

Boerne boasts some of the best Buy Local/Shop Small shopping you can find on the Hill Country Mile and along River Road, Main Street and Blanco Road. This article features seven shops on South Main Street. Boerne Main Street still has that small town feel but with shops that offer a huge variety of fashions and gifts. You can find almost anything you desire at the trendy shops with savy owners and managers providing the highest quality goods and wonderful customer service. 

When the Boerne Lifestyle editor visited the shops, the sales associates were ready to show off their latest adds to the racks and point out what has been popular for the summer. In the seven shops visited, we found an amazing array of clothing, accessories and jewelry to fit on any woman's or teen's "gotta have that" list. Even though summer in Boerne means "hot", the clothing felt comfy and easy to care for. From wildly patterned pants to long flowy dresses to shape-fitting shorter dresses everyone will find the fashion they like. 

Short pants and tops come in beautiful colors from neutral to bright. And of course you must have the wedge heel shoes and sandals plus the straw and cloth hats and colorful purses! The photos show some of the highlights from the shops; you can expect to find many more items in each.
