Martinis at Taboo Playlist

Martinis at Taboo Playlist

Chilled gin martinis, shrimp cockails, the gentle jingle of charm bracelets & bangles, monkey murals peeking out of lattice, shirley temples, caftans & sport coats- a place where the mean reds are banished. Welcome, relax & enjoy~

May Flowers Playlist

May Flowers Playlist

April Showers Bring May Flowers. May to me is soft and it is pretty. Summer is peeking around the corner. Flowers are blooming and blue skies are ahead. It is cool enough for a sweater, but warm enough to hang up your coat. The MET Gala provides inspiration. May to me is feminine, like this playlist. It is soft & inviting, a prelude to a beautiful...

A table was set amongst bookshelves lined with beloved tales and a three course dinner was served....

A Lady Derby Cocktail Party

A Lady Derby Cocktail Party

Lycette hosted a cocktail party last Friday to celebrate the launch of The Lady Derby's rainbow collection. The orchid courtyard was bubbling with laughter, cocktails, and nibbles. Guests floated between the store and outside, playing with colorful fibers and catching up with old friends. It was a charming, colorful evening and one I cannot wait to recreate on February 9th with our exclusive artist Ramsay...

Jessica's Beauty Favorites

Jessica's Beauty Favorites

I've been asked during Instagram Q&A's a few times what my favorite beauty products are, and while I find sharing my favorite beauty finds a little vulnerable I am happy to do so! Beauty is so fun and personal. I do not believe that beauty is a symmetrical face or a perfect bikini body, but rather a joie de vivre and a feeling and energy...

Orchid Festival

Orchid Festival

Redland International Orchid Festival Yesterday I had the fabulous opportunity to accompany a friend to the Redland International Orchid Festival in Homestead, FL. I am always hesitant to take time off work, but this adventure was beyond worth it!  Not only did I learn more about orchids (a flower that I find fascinating but intimidating), but I also found inspiration. I believe that passion is contagious...

Lycette's Guide to Palm Beach, Florida

Lycette's Guide to Palm Beach, Florida

This year Lycette enters it's fifth season on the charming and chic island of Palm Beach! Palm Beach has enchanted me since I was young. The gorgeous architecture, the lush landscaping, the luxurious and chic shopping, and the well mannered old school Palm Beachers. This is an island where doors are held open, long time residents say please and thank you, and the hedges are perfectly...

What I'm Loving...VOL VIII

What I'm Loving...VOL VIII

Maggie on Hulu. A light hearted, comforting, and happy show to watch.  This cute & cheerful canvas.   On the insistence of the fabulous Amy Stone I gave this exfoliator another try. I am OBSESSED. I swear after a week my skins texture is totally transformed.  This Italian Chopped Salad from Gwyneth Paltrow is a staple in our house.    Speaking of Italian, this Instagram page dedicated to...

Lycette Newport Playlist

Lycette Newport Playlist

My favorite thing about Newport is that it has every reason to be boastful, but it is not. Newport is home to Gilded Age Mansions, The New York Yacht Club, gorgeous beach and tennis clubs, The Tennis Hall of Fame, delicious food, Olympic sailors, a plethora of cultural activities, a secret surfing scene, and black tie galas throughout the summer. Despite all this Newport is...

Lycette's Guide to Newport, Rhode Island

Lycette's Guide to Newport, Rhode Island

Two years ago Lycette opened its second location in the charming and historic town of Newport, Rhode Island. Although I had visited in the past I had never spent a full summer there. As my first summer faded into fall it was apparent I was enchanted by Newport. Although filled with heritage, the seaside town is also very modern and offers everything from delicious restaurants to...
