Quality basics with a twist and a splash of color at this boutique
Locally owned Gavin offers high quality lines but skips the boring black t-shirts. Here you’ll find pieces with color and shape in luxurious fabrics — anything but standard. Prints, zippers, gems, chains and textures are some of the themes in the store, targeted toward the young and stylish. Says the owner, Lauren, Gavin isn’t trendy, but rather “chic.” She encourages personal style rather than that of the runway.
Don’t leave without checking out the small but worthy sale racks, or the selection of chain-and-leather belts. While the jewelry selection is shrinking, it remains unique and stand-out. Look for an expanded collection of shoes soon!
