A shopper's dream destination!



When travelling, for us girls, shopping is always a big part of the fun, and sourcing out those little hidden gems is the thrill of the hunt for me!!!  Malls just don't do it...individually owned shops which make me feel like I have just had an unforgettable, and personal experience, with the passion and heart of the owner at their core, is what I look for!!


Just such a shop is Posh on Palm, situated in beautiful, sunny Sarasota, Florida on the Gulf coast. I know many of you may be familiar with it, since it has been featured in all the best decorating mags over the years...but many of my Canadian friends who visit Florida, may not be familiar with it.



Owned by Mark and Suzie Lohman, it is the best of the romantic, cottage style aesthetic so popular with so many of us....located in downtown Sarasota, on Palm Avenue. Situated in a grand, old Florida style hotel, the shell that the Lohman's have to work with, is perfection in itself, before you discover their enchanting, romantic wares!!


 


Bedding by Bella Notte, and other fine distributors is beautifully showcased, as well as vintage, monogrammed sheets and shams which Suzie adds to the mix.


Gorgeous white, dreamy, slip covered furniture is a trademark, a perfect look for the beach aesthetic in this area of the Gulf coast of Florida....




Every nook and cranny is a feast for the eyes...and so soul soothing....


A creamy white, pastel palette prevails.....



No detail has been spared....




a diaphanous Marie Antoinette style.....



There is some exciting news for the Posh customer on the horizon.... not only will you be able to shop to your hearts content, but Suzie and Mark are about to open a tea/luncheon room in this beautiful establishment...



Imagine having a delicious lunch and brisk cup of tea or iced lemonade at this dreamy table for two!!!
Perfect for a girlfriend's birthday or just a break from a hectic day...



The lovely, vintage dessert counter waiting to showcase luscious selections under glass cloches...



Unique architectural elements are employed throughout....here, the entrance to the tea room...




I loved these vintage, distressed pair of doves, so adorable as garden ornaments, or to use in wedding decor!  Suzie, I may have to call.....



The sleepy resident pet kitty, perfectly content and at home in such luscious and serene surroundings....the store was formerly...The Cat's Meow!!!

Be sure to discover Posh on Palm when visiting the Gulf Coast of Florida.
You will be so happy that you did!!
