Owner Cari Bohannan, left, and sales associate Hillary Blaine are excited about one of the bright new looks for spring at The District on Main. New merchandise and new lines are arriving daily at the upscale boutique located in downtown Claremore.
Spring is almost here and The District on Main in downtown Claremore is prepared with new arrivals coming in daily. From dresses for Easter to an expanding line of menswear, the upscale boutique promises to delight your senses when you walk through the door at 407 W. Will Rogers Blvd.
In addition, the store is expanding its plus size clothing to include more variety for the younger customers. You’ll find popular brands like Brighton, including jewelry, handbags, watches, sunglasses and charms, as well as Kendra Scott. “We have new lines of Brighton and Kendra Scott coming in for spring,” says Cari Bohannan, owner. “We also have all new Lauren James and Jadelynn Brooke preppy-style shirts for spring.”
Another popular brand carried by the boutique is Charlie Southern T-shirts. “We carry their State Love line which celebrates Oklahoma.” The T-shirts are designed to show those around you that you are proud of where you came from or where you’ve ended up. State Love is a unique line that allows the wearer to be a little different and share their journey with others. “We have different styles of Lane riding boots coming in April,” Cari adds. “They are very popular.”
The store is expanding its line of Archipelago Botanicals body care products. The line is a gentle, natural-based bath and skin formulations loaded with pomegranates and other powerful antioxidants to help keep the skin looking young, healthy and vibrant.
Another line the store is expanding is Rustic Cuff jewelry, a quality and unique design that has grown from a basic leather cuff line into an entire collection including exotic skins, original designs, and various types of metals.
Besides expanding some of their current lines, the store is adding some new ones including Soybu active wear and another reasonably priced line of active wear. Lilly Pulitzer, a brand new gift line, will also be gracing the shelves at The District on Main. “The merchandise from Lilly Pulitzer includes nice gift items like market totes, tumblers, umbrellas, coolers, key fobs and sunglasses accessories,” she adds. Seventeen-month agendas will be arriving later.
Just in time for spring is a new line of sandals for both men and women. Rainbow Sandals, created by hand, are specially formulated with glue to keep the layers together and the straps in place, and have been formulated with various densities of sponge rubber with “memory” to mold to the individual’s feet. “We’re really excited about Rainbow sandals,” she says. “They have a lifetime warranty.”
Cari invites you to follow The District on Main on Facebook as well as on Instagram for new arrivals and specials. “We have new arrivals almost daily,” she adds, “and they’re posted on these two sites.”
A new way to connect with The District on Main is through texting. “You can sign up for our VIP text club by texting ‘District’ to 71441 to be the first to know about new arrivals and specials.”
