Chilewich, Why We Obsess

Used by some of the finest restaurants in the world, Chilewich is an obsession-worthy brand and here's why:

Chilewich offers fashionable placemats and runners in every texture, size, weave and color under the sun, so you'll have no problem finding a style to perfectly complement your decor. While we're fans of neutrals (shocking, we know), the saturated spectrum of colors is dizzying and we want. them. all.

Chilewich placemats and runners are so thin, place settings and stemware sit evenly on the surface so they make setting a beautiful table an absolute dream. Let's take a moment of silence to mourn the loss of previously shattered glasses and goblets...

Chilewich's floor mats are also low-profile, so your door will never catch on the pile, and they won't cause furniture and lighting to tip or teeter.

Perhaps the best part, all Chilewich placemats, runners and floor mats can be easily rinsed or hosed off, rather than laundered, making these pieces a practical, durable and good looking home textile option. 

You simply must come in to see and feel these gems for yourself. Come obsess with us... 

Barn Sale 2017

We don't go on sale often but when we do, we go BIG. This year, our barn will be loaded up with home decor, gifts, furniture, architectural details, jewelry, clothing and so! much! more!

While we pull lots of fab merch into our barn in the few hours before the sale begins, get a eensy-teensy sneak peek below at a sliver of what you'll find inside during the event:

Remember, the early bird gets all the best stuff, so grab your friends and a coffee to-go and be the first to shop our beloved barn!

Come shop our Barn Sale on September 9th from 10a - 5p. With discounts up to 50% off, you won't want to miss out!

Take note: The Roanoke Fall Festival will be in full swing on the 9th so make a day of it and enjoy all that downtown Roanoke has to offer! Get more details here.

Prepping for Fall

It's always fun to get organized for Autumn. We love sweater weather and the return of our favorite denim pieces, paired with all the fun Fall festivities that fill our calendars like the famous Johnny Appleseed Festival and our legendary Barn Sale (stay tuned for info on that can't-miss event). Here's how we're starting the transition from Summer to Fall...

Take the trickiness out of transitional dressing and refresh your closet with easy layers, paired with upgraded denim staples.

Treat yourself to a new "Back to School" supply, such as a new take everywhere S'well bottle, the most chic tech accessories on the planet or a stylish new agenda. 

Come shop our latest and greatest and get ready for the season ahead!

Back To School

School days are just around the corner... But don't fret, because the end of Summer means the beginning of something new, something exciting. We've stocked our stores with the things you really want to buy for the year ahead.

2018

We start with the backpack. It must be durable, indeed, but it must be stylish, since it will be hugging the body for the next 9 months (and beyond). Bonus points if your chosen backpack also helps to provide education for children in developing nations.

Who says notebooks and pencils can't be downright adorable? We believe the things you use the most should be as attractive as possible. Ditch that jaundiced No. 2 pencil and grab some with pizzazz!

Even if school days are behind you, there's something in the air as the start of the Fall semester arrives. Treat yourself to a new notebook or journal and a charming bouquet of newly sharpened pencils (You've Got Mail, anyone?). Buy yourself that new book your well-read friend has been telling you about (better yet, borrow it). Whatever it may be, snap up something useful yet nice for yourself as you head straight into Autumn.

We know the #BTS shopping lists are long, but after you grab the glue and whatnot, come see us at The Trove (or sister store, The FIND) for the more exciting supplies (and extras) on your list!

In the Bag

A great handbag can make all the difference when it comes to putting together a look. From clutches to totes to the next must-have cross body, we have so many current faves.

Our current selection of leather bags includes sleek styles, metallic flashes and small touches of colorful textures.

Our casual totes are perfect for Summer days, full of pool runs, trips to the market and lunches with your bestie.

Come find your next must-have bag in #thenoke!

Style Quick Take: White Hot

There's nothing like crisp Summer whites when it's hot and steamy outside. We can't get enough of this neutral and love to play around with new ways to incorporate the color (or lack thereof) into our wardrobes.

We believe mastering an all white ensemble relies on two things: texture and accessories. The airy and feminine details of this blouse make the look interesting, especially when paired with the straight lines of classic denim. The clutch, with that darling touch of pink as well as the gold accents, provides an extra oomph.

Lip Service

In these dog days of Summer, we like to put on the least amount of makeup we can get away with. With a clean and simple face, a pop of color on the lips is the perfect warm weather look. Best of all, it's easy. We've long been smitten with Henné Organics' line of luxurious lip care products and now that they've added color, we've taken our relationship to the next level. As in, you'll always find at least one tube of Henné in our handbags at any given time. The classic balm is a no-brainer for the softest lips around and the scrubs are must-haves for flake-free puckers. Make them part of your regular daily and nightly skincare regime and you'll always be perfectly kissable, year round. 

Henné Organics' Lip Tints are intensely hydrating and impart the most lovely, sheer, yet buildable, color. Azalea is vibrant and playful, while Bare is a delicate nude hue and is perfectly versatile. Coral adds a warm glow to any complexion, and Intrigue is a dark red that adds a hint of drama. All four shades complement every skin tone, thanks to the formula's luminous tint.

Come try on these lovely, lippies for yourself! 

Have a Swell Summer

We Trovesters are dedicated S'well enthusiasts. We're in love with the function of these bottles (they keep liquids hot for 12 hours or cold for 24!) but we'd be lying if we said we weren't head over heels with the look of these beauties. Sleek and stylish, and perfectly sized, we consider our S'well bottles a worthy fashion accessory.

As if we couldn't love them enough already, we came across this article online about the 30 Unhealthiest Drinks on the Planet. While we're encouraged to stay hydrated throughout each day, those ubiquitous plastic bottles are not only terrible for our planet but also for our bodies, as it turns out.

The water isn’t the problem here; it’s the BPA in the bottle. BPA is a hormone-mimicking chemical found in nearly all food packaging plastics, and it’s potentially bad news. According to some pools of research, the chemical may promote cancer and render people infertile. To stay hydrated on the go, buy a BPA-free refillable bottle. We’re big fans of S’well bottles, which come in a wide array of fashionable patterns and color pallets.

Home, office and on the go...

We pour our morning coffee into a S'well, instead of a mug these days. Our mid-morning, lunchtime and afternoon coffees, too.

Packing up for a picnic? The 25 oz holds a full bottle of wine. #justsaying 

Even in a hot (or cold) car, your liquids will stay at the perfect temperature all day.

Swing by to shop our full selection of S'well or nab a limited-edition bottle on our online shop.
