I had the most fun last night attending the opening preview of The Podolls new flagship store in downtown Burlingame. It was such an honor to be one of the first to visit their new space. If you remember Lauren from my playdate, she and her husband Josh are the design duo behind this stylish, eco-friendly brand. They started selling only t-shirts 10 years ago and now the brand has evolved to offer a fine line of women’s clothing as well as their new children’s line, The Podots! (Seriously the cutest name ever!)
I am absolutely in love with the space! It is modern and perfectly merchandised (with the help of Trina & Sheri who were behind one of my favorite SF boutiques, now selling one-of-kind jewelry, Metier). Some of the unique fixtures were custom made by friends Josh & Lauren knew in the industry, which I thought was so amazing!
There’s also a really good selection of specialty magazines here, think The Gentlewoman, Kindling (great one for cool dads!), Apartmento, , , , Monocle! A rare sight in this suburban part of town for sure.
You can also find some of my favorites brands here like Freda Salvador and Clare Vivier! Josh and Lauren has such a good eye for picking the best! By the way, I took a quick selfie in the mirror wearing the prettiest red silk top by The Podolls. It’s super simple but the silhouette is so nice. I get compliments every time!
Um, how cute is this outfit? And the Stitch & Hammer mini apron?!
There were no better way to view the space than over a glass of champers, oysters from Saltwater, and good company. The Podolls are opening officially this Friday and I highly suggest you to stop by, especially to all of my Peninsula friends! Burlingame (about 20-30 mins south of SF) is also a super kid-friendly neighborhood with good eats like The Plant, The Melt, and soon-to-be-open Delfina Pizzeria (my fave with the kids!) I’m already looking forward to coming back here with the babies and George for more shopping! This is definitely gonna give us more reasons to come by the hood.
Many congrats to Josh, Lauren, and their adorable son Dashiell!
