There are a lot of celebrations and occasions to dress up for in May and June – a Mother’s Day lunch, a graduation ceremony, a getaway over Memorial Day weekend, a friend’s wedding in June, a fun night out with Dad for Father’s Day, and more. There also may be the impulse to gussy up just because the local landscapes are in bloom so why not feel pretty when you are out and about? From a stroll along the Riverwalk downtown to dinner at a waterfront restaurant at the beach, the Wilmington area has the retail to help you dress it up!
