news in newport

Another J.McLaughlin shop has opened in Newport, R.I. so if your travels take you to Rhode Island, please pop in and see what lovelies are in store. Certainly a befitting location for preppy clothing with a twist. Please pardon my "gray" scan, experiencing some technical difficulities for the technically challenged (that would be moi) have presented themselves in an untimely fashion.
Planning to stay close to New York City, then how about a day trip to one of the burroughs, a new J.McLaughlin shop in Brooklyn. Just look for the charming red shop. Summer is all about red, white, blue and what's new! All J.McLaughlin stores are located on the web site, along with sweet online postcards that you can send to your friends with little messages like, "wish you were here!" Happy Summer shopping and sailing.
