Kids with active imaginations know that without a wardrobe department, their pretend productions would lack a level of believability. Assist young producers with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of children's apparel at The Purple Goose in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria. This deal is only valid toward apparel purchases.
The Purple Goose's winsome wares are gently tucked into the sweet boutique, making a fun feast for the eyes as well as an ideal station for outfit ideation. The sprightly selection includes apparel for boys, girls, and child-sized automatons in a wide range of sizes. Juice spills are stylishly concealed by the stylish, colorful patterns of Lilly Pulitzer frocks ($48–$78, depending on size) including Lilly's original shift dress ($48). Tart meets sweet with Lemon Loves Lime's embellished mermaid shirts ($55) and skirts with fun, foamy textures. Aquatic-minded youngsters can stroll about the seashore with a mudpie crab romper ($28), and those who actually want to get their feet wet can elegantly do so en pointe with a Kate Mack ballerina swimsuit ($40).
Decorate a stroller sitter with walk-worthy duds, or distract the tyke from a drive to the dentist with the promise of new raiments from The Purple Goose. Check the shop's Facebook page for photos of its bounteous stock.
