For this week’s Local Shop Feature we spoke with Paige Plaisance, owner of Ramblin’ Rose Boutique located in Austin, TX. Now you’re probably thinking Ramblin’ Rose is a regular store front… WRONG! The Ramblin’ Rose Boutique is located in at 1720 Barton Springs Road, Austin, TX in a 1972 Airstream trailer. Sounds fun right?
Since opening the shop in April 2017, Paige has found a way to express her creativity in the form of clothes and a creative shopping experience. She is not only able to voice her own creativity but inspire others to do so as well!
The Ramblin’ Rose customer ranges from men and women at any age. While the shop’s focus is on ladies, men do shop the store from time to time. There is such a diverse range of customers that Paige encourages customers to mix their clothing and accessories within different styles to create a personalized look.
The purpose of Ramblin’ Rose was to create a place where people like Paige can go to relax and browse for treasures that you won’t find anywhere else. Paige’s main passion is music so you will see an assortment of t-shirts with her favorite bands and musicians in store. Such as this David Bowie t-shirt!
Paige says, “My favorite thing about retail and clothing is the feeling I get when I LOVE what I am wearing. Your clothing can make you feel more confident and I love to see confident women loving what they are wearing. If I can inspire that confidence, then I will be happy.”
While the Ramblin’ Rose Boutique doesn’t have an online shop, you can always shop their Instagram @ramblinroseco! In the Austin area? Stop by and take a look inside the 1972 Airstream trailer shop!
Happy Thanksgiving week! When I dress for Thanksgiving my top concerns are comfort and am I going to be uncomfortable in my outfit after I stuff my face. I think I’ve addressed those concerns below with a few options.
I still like to dress up so I would suggest a festive flowy dress. Plenty of room to eat, comfortable, and still dressy. You can pair this with a pair of low booties or even a pair of comfy heels! Around the holidays I always go with a long sleeve dress for added comfort and warmth.
Another way to stay comfortable is with leggings. Probably most people’s go to. However, there’s ways to spice them up! For example these camel suede leggings. Pair it with a sweater and some heels, booties, or flats.
We had the pleasure of speaking with Nicole DeMore, the retail buyer and manager of the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. Located at 2000 Spindrift Drive in La Jolla, California, LJBTC was established in 1935.
The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club is a beachfront resort as well as a private membership club with a shop on location! The company and its members are very focused on tradition and memories of time spent at the club. A large percentage of members are families and live within walking distance of the club so they are there often. In such a beautiful place like La Jolla, can you blame them? In continued tradition, many other customers are resort guests who have been coming to the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club for years.
The LJBTC has evolved over the years to accommodate their members, visitors, and employee needs. They now carry everything you can think of: logo wear and gifts of course, fashion-forward brands heavy on beach fashion, basic amenities and snacks needed for a stay in the hotel or a day at the beach, sunglasses, jewelry, sunscreen, bags, beauty product, beach toys, basic tennis equipment, etc.
Nicole’s emphasis is on their customer feeling welcomed and relaxed to enjoy looking around and adding to their experience there – and if that means they buy something to take home and continue enjoying their memories, even better!

It has been a while since our last blog post! We’ve been traveling and gearing up for holiday market. It has felt like the longest summer (we’re definitely not complaining) but we can feel the holidays around the corner! With the holidays comes the cold weather, and with the cold weather comes chapped lips and cracking skin.
A few years back I came across EiR NYC. I met Jun, EiR’s Founder, and fell in love with each and every one of the products. They are one of the current brands that we offer through The Pigment Group. The product I use most is their lip balm - currently I am using their Ski Balm as the weather gets colder into the holiday season. There are three kinds: “Baby Lips”, “Cooling Lip Balm”, “Ski Lips”. Each of them are all natural, made with minimal ingredients to offer you the purest recipe for your lips. For the harshest elements this winter, I highly recommend Ski Lips which contains SPF 50.
