Fashion trends often die young, like redwood trees or an avocado exposed to air. Today’s Groupon celebrates ripe, thriving fashion and style: for $50, you get $100 worth of merchandise at Elaine Turner, a creator and purveyor of handbags, shoes, and other accessories. This deal is only valid for in-store purchases on Elaine Turner handbags and shoes, including sale items—at the flagship store in Rice Village. If you purchase two Groupons, you can put both of them toward one visit.
Sauntering into spring wearing snow-pant cut-offs and declaring that goose-down lederhosen is the latest European trend is probably a fashion misstep. The collections at Elaine Turner are more like a step in the right direction. Each one is an extension of Elaine's own personality and passions embodied by bold prints, rich colors and exotic textures. The collection of shoes—heels, wedges, flats and sandals—cover all terrains. The 2010 Spring Collection is inspired by the theme of “Island Hopping,” so sandals are given top billing with distinct styles such as the T-strap ($175–$195), Roman ($175), and flip-flop ($150) to select. The hand bags ($150+) come in more than six styles and also contain island-themed beach options, which are fit for lugging metal detectors, pirate maps, and fully constructed sand castles around an archipelago.
Elaine Turner harvests inspiration from around the globe, which is transplanted into each design. Bags exude the spirit of Morocco, sandals reminisce about Caribbean sands, and wallets tell stories about celebrity pockets. Reap the bounty of worldly influence by perusing the racks and shelves at the boutique for your next go-to handbag, shoe, or accessory.
According to its press page/cover gallery, Elaine Turner products have appeared in scores of major publications, including People, O (Oprah), Self, InStyle, and Lucky.
