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.


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!

The Autumn Home

We know you don't switch around the entire decor of your house every season (though, wouldn't that be fun?). What we do know is that by switching up a few choice pieces, you can make a seasonal transition with style and ease. A few of our favorite Fall staples...

With a throw here, a pine scented decorative pillow there, along with the most gorgeous rustic candles we've encountered yet, making your home feel cozy, chic and warm for the crisp season ahead is a snap. 

Come shop our gorgeous selection of Autumn home decor and accents!

Fall Fash

Rich colors, luxurious textures and statement accessories are the evergreen trends for the upcoming Fall season. Stock up on minimalist staples with a twist and grab a few eye-catching finishing touches like chic beaded tassel necklaces and It-girl worthy handbags. 

We love how the right necklace can elevate a simple sweatshirt to uber cool status. 

Bucket bags are all the rage, especially in a rich cognac that just screams FALL!

We love thoughtful, interesting details like a sheer, frayed hem of a classic t shirt, layered under a cushy, cozy knit cardigan.

Multitasking bags (it's a clutch, it's a crossbody, it's a wristlet) in deep leathers are essential for the stylish gal on the go.

A Love Letter to Roanoke

Hometown pride? We've got it. Roanoke is a pretty special place and it just keeps getting better and better. We're blissfully happy to be part of such a wonderful and charming community. With each new business, and family for that matter, that decides to put down roots here, our tiny town gets an immeasurable boost.

We Trovesters felt the true spirit of Roanoke and its people this summer after a crazy storm blew through town and left many streets, businesses and homes flooded. In the storm's wake, shop owners and friends like Valerie Powers, of Powers of One yoga studio, the Lions Club and so many others (who had their own catastrophes to deal with) strapped on mud boots and work gloves and tirelessly worked throughout the day to bail out their neighbors. Others offered food, water, fans (ahem, Angie Chafee!) as well as emotional support. It's that small town charm and family feel that gives Roanoke its appeal, even as the town continues to grow. This flood made us Trovesters proud to be part of Roanoke and its group of merchants. 

Our beloved barn suffered a bit of damage in this Summer's flood but we were back up and running in no time, thanks to so many friends and neighbors.

Take a walk down Main Street and you'll see pretty, seasonal flower baskets, Grandpa and Grandma Sue selling their pies and noodles, antique shops filled with vintage curiosities and boutiques that bring so much style to our little slice of Indiana. And if you're hungry? You're in such luck! Lunch options have expanded with the new (and stunningly gorgeous) location of La Dolce Vita, now offering gourmet lunches on Wednesdays. The Emporium has added new salads and other vegetarian options while the Village Inn, known for hearty American pub fare, got an interior makeover. Still want to channel Summer? Moose & Mollies' tasty gelato will do the trick. The latest delicious biz on the block is Proper Pastry which offers pretty little French macarons, freshly baked croissants, breads, cupcakes and savory baked goods.

We could go on and on about how great #thenoke is but why don't you just come spend a day and see for yourself? There are so many great events each season in Roanoke. Follow the above businesses on Facebook, sign up for our e-newsletters and keep an eye on our events page to stay in the know. Should you decide to spend a little more time with us, lay your head down at The Inn at Joseph Decuis or the North End boutique hotel (they take the word boutique seriously - they have a well stocked women's clothing and accessory boutique on the ground floor).

Roanoke, we are head over heels in love with you!


The Trove

Mad for Plaid

As in fashion, home decor styles come and go. One season, painterly prints are the thing, only to be replaced by geometric prints the next. But there's one thing we know for sure: plaid prints never go out of style. And, as in fashion, plaid can be paired with traditional pieces but looks just as good when combined with a bit of glitz and glamour.

While technically, it may still be Summer, we can't help but look forward to the crisp Autumn air, pumpkin spice everything (maybe not everything) and cuddling up on the couch with loved ones. Enter Faribault Woolen Mill Company blankets. These classically stylish throws (in limited edition anniversary prints) perk up interiors and are made from the softest of soft lambs wool. 

While we're sure you'll love these gorgeous throw blankets, swoop in to the The Trove now to snap yours up. The company only made 300 of these babies and we snagged 6 of them. If you're mad for plaid like we are, run, don't walk.
