Blankets, Books and Baubles

The last few weeks of summer can still be bright and vibrant, even in the slant of the late August sun. Make your next beach trip or park reading adventure stand out with beautiful patterns and colors, and be sure to pack a bag with all the essentials for the perfect daycation. Read a magazine, take some notes, paint your nails, put your hair up and just lay out and enjoy what’s left of the season while you can.

Love Mix Competition

April 18th, 2012 / by Paul / 3 comments / permalink

As anyone whose workplace has music playing all day can tell you, it’s always a struggle. Who likes what, “are we listening to THAT AGAIN??” etc. We’re asking our music loving customers to make us a LOVE MIX. Something that is befitting to the vibe of the store, fun, eclectic, sunny. The top 10 mixes get 20% off anything you buy at Love for an entire year. Yep, that’s right. So help us expand our musical horizons and bring up the musical cool quotion of the shop. New or old, classic or avant garde, or any mix thereof.¬†We’re open to most genres, but death metal probably won’t really do…

– Send us a CD by mail or drop it off at the shop: Love Adorned 269 Elizabeth Street, New York, NY 10012

– You can also email us your mix at . We suggest compressing all the MP3 songs into a ZIP file and sending that along.

– Please include your name, email address and phone number with your CD.

Deadline for submission is May 10th, so be sure to send in or drop off before then! Here are some more photos for inspiration:
