Summer Check List

Summer Check List

Despite the fluctuating weather patterns - from 100 degrees to chilly and rainy all in one week - summer is here. School's out, vacations have been planned, local strawberries are finally in season and we see more sunshine in the forecast.  It's a good time of year to check in on a few key pieces in your summer wardrobe and fill in what's missing. 

As we all know in Portland, the days can remain cool until nearly 5 pm, so it's good to think about lightweight layers in cotton, denim and linen.  We also like sticking to a color palette, so you can mix and match easily and the clothes will fit seamlessly into your existing wardrobe.

From L to R: Rag & Bone straw wide brim fedora, Rag & Bone "Devon" scarf, Vince Park Collection convertible bucket bag, Majestic stripe linen tee, Paul Smith cotton skirt, Frame cotton lace tank dress, Current/Elliott "The Snap" denim jacket, Rag & Bone "Drape" tank, Current/Elliott "The Girlfriend" short, Vince lace tee and Frame "Le High Skinny" jean.

A few of our favorite summer essentials include a good sunhat, a striped linen tee, a couple breezy, cotton tops, a versatile sundress, and of course a pair of white jeans.  All pieces that can be mixed and matched and dressed up or down. 

Happy Summer!

Easy for Easter

Easy for Easter

Similar to wedding season, Easter is a great excuse to buy a new dress (or separates),  especially if you can find a piece or two that will take you through summer and all the events that come with it.

We like to keep our Easter outfits light, bright and floral, with a little lace thrown in - which keeps things festive and fun - and of course, on trend for the season. 

Graphic prints, floral or otherwise, are all over dresses right now, making it easy to find an Easter appropriate outfit.  It also wouldn't be a spring 2016 dress if there wasn't a white option, be it crochet, eyelet or linen, you'll find the perfect white dress for you.

From L to R: Red Valentino cotton eyelet lace dress, Paul Smith cotton dress, Derek Lam 10 Crosby cotton top with lace trim, Theory "Raoka" floral print pants, M Missoni dress, L'Agence "T Lee" silk blouse and "Mackenzie" skirt.

Whether you're doing a low key brunch with friends, attending mass, a party at the club or sticking around the house for a drizzly egg hunt with the kids, we've got a look for you.

Treat Yo' Self

Treat Yo' Self

We're getting in the spirit of Saint Valentine's Day here at Mercantile.  Shades of pink and red on the racks and all the candy hearts you could ask for. 

We know it can be a loaded holiday for a lot of people - whether you're in a committed relationship, years long marriage or happily single - it can be both stressful and often times disappointing.  Rather than put your Valentine's gift in the hands of another person, we've picked out some rose hued items just for you.  That way, no matter what your relationship status, you'll be taken care of.  We believe in self-reliance after all. 

Take your pick from the list below, grab yourself a bottle of bubs and you'll be all set for a relaxing, and of course stylish Saturday (fingers crossed for sunshine!).

From L to R: Paul Smith herringbone stripe scarf, ATM "Cozy" cashmere cardigan, Max Mara "Oblato" jacket, Shiraleah leopard clutch, Kismet by Milka double bar bangle with champagne diamonds, Max Mara "Palco" shirt, Majestic striped linen t-shirt.

Always remember, there's nothing better than to treat yourself!
