Gals About Town

We Trovesters love to throw cool soirees, but sometimes we're more thrilled just to be guests. We're happy to say we're buds with so many fine Indiana ladies. From fellow boutique owners to bloggers, photographers and various other creatives, we can't think of anything better than supporting all the #girlbosses we call friends. Through the work of a handful of these fab ladies, part of our team ended up as guests at a wonderful, beautiful event, one with meaning, hosted by the phenomenal Photanical ladies, Eden and Ruth.

In an effort to help fellow women in need, Photanical harnessed local companies Yummi Bunni, Fancy & Staple, Idlehour and Lace & Arrow into a philanthropic super group for their first ever installment of their brand spanking new #flightfulfw series. Yummi Bunni passed out delicious ice cream floats and guests made flower arrangements, courtesy of Fresh Thyme and Nicole Funk, to give to their fav-o-rite Galentine. The price of the ticket went to providing feminine care products for the women who reside in The Courtyard, an apartment community for those aging out of foster care, or at risk of becoming homeless.

It felt great to band together with women to help women, and to have such a beautiful (and tasty) time doing it. As one Trovester said, "It was like Lilith Fair, but without all the angst."

Go West

We are beyond thrilled to share our expansion to Big Sky, Montana. Trovester Kate, known for her passion for Montana, opened our latest outpost on June 30th, with two local partners, Hannah Johansen and Katie Craig. 

Trovesters Kate Tomkinson & Melani Wilson, with their supportive husbands in tow, worked hard (with some fun breaks in between) to get The Trove West ready for the Grand Opening.

The view of Lone Peak from the back door of The Trove West. Not too shabby!

The store is just lovely and full of indie goodies and gifts from all over these beautiful United States, including merch from both Montana and Indiana makers. If you're ever in the area, be sure to stop by to say hello!

Sister Act

Sisters are different flowers from the same garden.
— Unknown


The Trove was born out of friendship and a mutual passion for creating and sharing beautiful things. We have a deep love for our little slice of Roanoke and the town's oh-so-charming Main Street. We wax poetically about our enchanting barn and live for the Summer Friday night street fairs that bring hundreds of people to #thenoke. If you'd like to read more on our fondness for Roanoke, check out our Love Letter to Roanoke from September 2015.

All good things must grow and thus our latest development came after a few meetings with another friend, Libby Ash. We are simply overjoyed about the opening of our sister store, The FIND, located within the sparkling Ash Skyline Plaza. We're honored to be among the burgeoning lifestyle scene of the great city of Fort Wayne and are excited to see what else is in store for its continued growth. To read more about The FIND's origin story, take a peek at its brand spanking new website.

Finally, we are absolutely tickled about our Western expansion with The Trove West in Big Sky, Montana! We're over the moon for Trovester Kate and her plans to supply her beloved Big Sky with the chicest goods around. 

Please join us at The FIND for our Grand Opening on June 1st! And, once we know the opening date for our new digs in Big Sky, we'll let you know so you can make travel arrangements. We just know you won't want to miss a thing!


A Look Back @ Spring Fling

On March 10th we Trovesters took part in a fashion show along with our friends at The North End, Fort Wayne Outfitters and Joseph Decuis. Powers of One hosted a wonderful  yoga class before the luncheon and runway show. After the event, we were treated to trunk shows by Fort Wayne Outfitters and Beija-Flor Jeans and a mini pop-up shop from FoxSea Skin. We had an absolute blast and our most sincere thanks go out to our fabulous models and all who made the event a smashing success!

Jean Therapy

Our quest for great jeans has been lifelong. Yes, we all know the struggle is real. But in denim brand beija-flor (pronounced beige-ah-floor), we've found some of the softest, most flattering denim around. 

A mother-daughter duo founded the brand, inspired by figure-flattering styles seen on stylish ladies while living in Brazil. The team at beija-flor creates luxuriously lightweight denim that works with a woman's curves. The jeans come in universally flattering cuts with strategic stitching, illusion washes and perfectly placed pockets for those oh-so sought after slimming effects. Who wouldn't love THAT??

The entire line features wrinkle-free and breathable fabrics that keep you cool throughout the day that are also water-resistant, to boot! Each pair features "bounce-back memory stretch" which helps battle the dreaded gapping at the waist. 

Our selection of beija-flor jeans will be gracing some of the models at the Spring Fling fashion show and luncheon on Thursday, March 10th. Get more details about this fantastic event here

Come try on your perfect pair at our beija-flor trunk show at The Trove on March 10th & 11th and we'll give you a free gift! Purchase a pair and you get another free gift! We'll even be open at 9:30am on Friday, March 11th for those of you with school drop off/pick up schedules to consider.

While in Roanoke, stop by The North End on March 10th from 1-3pm & March 11th from 10-2pm for their Blanc Noir and Vignorella trunk shows. It's an absolute fashion frenzy in #thenoke this month!
