Memorial Day weekend is the official kick off to Summer and we've got everything you need to do it in style! From punchy accessories and luxurious skincare to the sweetest hostess gift for that barbecue you've been invited to, here's what we're crushing on for this holiday weekend.
Spring Break is here and we can hardly contain ourselves! In our suitcase this year, you'll find stylish resort staples, a multitasking beauty balm and a charming book by local author, and all-around cool chick, Erin Loechner. Toss an actual camera (yes, they still exist) into the hippest fringe bag and take off!
Even more to love...
Have fun and be safe, Spring Breakers!
We've partnered with five dynamic, young and local ladies who adore style as much as we do. You might have seen them popping up in our social media feeds or even in store. Led by our marketing intern, Jessica Carroll, our Ambassador program is meant to provide inspiration and opportunity for them as well as for us Trovesters. We'll be regularly sharing their favorite things from our shelves as well as their perspective on style. This is just the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
"I'm a junior at Homestead High School, a volunteer in the children's department at my church and love going out for dinner with loved ones. When I was younger, I lived in England for two years and traveled around Europe and Africa with my family! I'm loving all the beautiful pearl pieces in The Trove's jewelry department right now."
"I'm a freshman at IPFW in Fort Wayne, transferring to study architecture at Ball State’s College of Architecture and Planning next Fall. Personal is about creating art within yourself. My style is just like my personality, all over the place! I'm especially into the collection of tops and blouses at The Trove right now. So many great, casual yet stylish looks."
"I'm graduating from Bishop Dwenger High School and will be attending IPFW in the Fall. I love being creative and having fun with my friends and family, as well as making others laugh and smile. My current fave from The Trove is Little Barn Apothecary's coffee and mint body scrub. It leaves your body feeling incredibly soft and moisturized and the scent is the perfect pick-me-up."
"I'm a Senior at Homestead High School, attending Ball State University in the Fall, to study Journalism and Marketing. I spend most of my time with a book in one hand and coffee in the other, but enjoy doing anything outside, spending time with friends hiking and exploring. My favorite product from The Trove is anything and everything POL - there isn't a piece I don't love."
"I'm a freshman at Ball State University, studying Telecommunications with a focus on video production. I have a passion for photography, hiking and generally spending time outdoors and I just can't get enough time with dogs. My favorite piece from The Trove is the amazingly soft Barefoot Dreams zip hoodie because it feels like I’m hugging a cloud when I wear it!"
The future looks bright!

We Trovesters love little luxuries. What could be better than an accessible touch of glamour as part of your am and pm skincare routines as well as on the go? High quality, safe beauty products and chic design, at an affordable price, is why we adore Henné Organics. The brand's vision "is to reintroduce a splash of luxury into the everyday without sacrificing design, ethics or one’s health. A modern and minimalistic approach replaces standard lip care products with something extraordinary."
Founder, Laura Xiao, says, "Living abroad and moving frequently forced me to declutter and truly focus on the essentials. When you’re living out of suitcases for several years, you quickly realize what’s important and what you can be without. This habit quickly developed into an essential part of my being and has led to a strong appreciation for beauty in simplicity and luxury in the basics." Thus, Henné Organics was born with a well-edited range of lip care products that bring a touch of elegance to an everyday, typically utilitarian, product.
New to the line is the cult fave lip balm in tube form, the highly anticipated Luxury Lip Balm V2. This sleek tube joins the best selling Luxury Lip Balm and Rose Diamonds Lip Exfoliator, both available in chic little pots. All Henné Organics products contain natural and organic ingredients proven to heal and soothe delicate skin.
Come experience Henné Organics for yourself and pick up a few extras for stocking stuffers or girlfriend gifts! We believe everyone needs a little bit of luxury every day.
When getting dressed for the day, applying fragrance is the final step we take. It's the icing on the cake, if you will. These days of cozy sweaters, boots and scarves call for a warm, sophisticated and sultry aroma. Ambre Blends is exactly that, which is why we are so in love with their intoxicating line of skin and body care products, all designed around their four signature, amber-based essences.
In these oh so very drying Winter months, it's especially important to protect skin. Treat yours to yummy, nourishing skincare, courtesy of Little Barn Apothecary. Their natural formulas are chock full of helpful ingredients and smell heavenly to boot! Cleansing, treating and hydrating, the range offers plant based solutions to modern skin woes. We're especially in love with the Coffee + Mint scrub, which delivers antioxidants and caffeine to firm and tighten skin, coconut oil to moisturize with essential fatty acids and peppermint oil to energize. It's just the concoction your parched Winter skin has been waiting for.

Skin is the body's largest organ. Thus, it's vital we take great care of it. We Trovesters believe skincare is best when it's as natural as possible while still being effective. While we've come across many skincare lines in our travels, we are especially impressed with Herbivore Botanicals. The range includes luxurious products, full of pure, highly concentrated, non-toxic ingredients. We'll be honest and say we also fell madly in love with the simply gorgeous packaging.
Stop by The Trove to test out these lovely skincare products for yourself!
