This past Saturday - June 21 - marked the first day of summer (in case anyone missed it - I did). Personally, there are two retailers that just make me think of summertime by the lake - Lands' End and L.L. Bean. I am not totally sure why but it must have to do with childhood memories of taking fleeces on the boat or the mass amount of beach towels contained in one of their signature canvas totes. I don't prefer one over the other so to be fair tomorrow I will feature L.L Bean. See below for some great home products that are perfect for summertime enjoyment.
