Welcome to our March Newsletter
Our beautiful customer Lynne in San Jose wearing a KC's outfit: Lynne says "My outfit is so nice!" We agree!
Our Lisette L. Trunk Show was a huge success with over 125 bottoms and blouses ordered! We look forward to seeing you in your new pieces and hope you enjoy them all season long and into the summer.

We've been busy putting together our Fashion for Compassion fundraiser and it promises to be another fantastic event! 

The Boutique is full of colour as new spring fashions continue to arrive, so be sure to stop in and shop! 
Proportion Petites & Conrad C Spring Collection
Proportion Petites , our most popular line, is arriving at the Boutique with gorgeous styles for spring! Proportion Petites specializes in styles for women 5'4" and under, and short-waisted ladies with short legs. Conrad C complements the petite line, but in regular sizing.

The #1 Selling Petite Dress Pant is now back in-stock! Available in black, navy and lined white. An absolute essential!

In sizes 2 to 16 and XS to XL, these lines work so well because you can build a wardrobe around the style groupings. We have lightweight JACKETS, vests, pull-on pants, capris and tops in mix-and-match groupings. Both lines are driven by navy this season (like so many others) and include complementary pieces in canary yellow and white.

Both lines sell out fast, so shop now!
New Line: BYLYSE
We are excited to introduce BYLYSE - a leisure line designed in Canada for all women!

We chose this line for its great selection of casual wear that is mix-and-match, washable and of a distinct quality you can feel. Wonderful travel wear too!

For spring, we have their reversible jackets and vests in navy to white, or navy to print. Coordinating sweaters, t-shirts, drawstring pants and capris are available in navy and white too. You can easily put together your ideal west coast casual outfit with these pieces.

Just In: Putorti Sweaters
New cotton and cotton blend spring sweaters from Putorti have just arrived at the Boutique! A Canadian classic. 

Always a favourite, we have long and short styles in lavender, apricot red and more, plus their signature coconut shell buttons are back! And we love a new style of cardigan in red with a hood. 

Remember, we only have one of each size in each style to make sure you don't bump into yourself. Shop now before they're gone!
New Arrivals: Marble
Our third Marble shipment has arrived and features a gorgeous turquoise grouping. This line has become a customer favourite and flies off the racks every season!

Many of the t-shirts are 100% cotton and their designs often feature unique details like zippers, buttons or prints that we don't see in other lines. Also of note this season, are their striped maxi dresses, cover-ups in 2 styles, 2 piece tunics that double as a sundress for petites, and lightweight sweaters.

Marble is designed in Scotland, so each piece has a distinct European flair.
New Arrivals: Renuar
Renuar's spring collection doesn't disappoint!  

The comfort waistband, mid-rise pull-ons have a 27" inseam and the right cut to avoid puckering and loose fabric in the rise, which makes them ideal for petite ladies. You'll love the crops and bermudas too!

In regular sizing, the full length, zip-up pants are available in denim blue and black.

Finally, everyone absolutely loves Renuar's REVERSIBLE JACKETS! This spring, we have black and beige styles and matching bottoms in the same colours, as well as in coral, aqua and lime green.

More Lisette L. 
Attention GOLFERS - we have stylish golf attire from Lisette L.'s Sport Collection, which includes skorts, capris and shorts. Every bottom is practically designed with just the right amount of stretch and usable pockets too!

New Lisette L. styles have arrived including a sophisticated cream/off-white 28" inseam embossed ankle pant, and an off-white woven capri. Both these styles are perfect to dress up any top and wonderful for travelling in ultimate comfort. We love this Canadian line!  

Spring Jackets
We have SPRING JACKETS in a multitude of styles. 

From Toronto, new Tonia DeBellis jackets in 3 styles have arrived. 

In Conrad Cwe have jackets in navy, canary yellow and white.

Reversible jackets are always popular and we have great styles from BYLASE and Renuar.

Style Tip: Accessory Trends for Spring
Just like pants this season (see last month's newsletter for tips on wearing the new styles), accessories are all about COLOUR!

Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, scarves and even shoes feature a variety of hues, and effortlessly add spring colour to your wardrobe.

If you prefer to wear black or navy bottoms, pick up hot pink or sapphire blue sandals, flip flops or pumps to give your basics a lift.

Scarves have evolved to become more than just a cold weather accessory. They are an all year round go-to piece for fashionistas to add style and colour to an outfit. Details like fringe, tassels, fantasy florals or border-print scarves all work for spring.

Jewellery is another fun and fashionable way to add colour. If you're wearing printed bottoms with a neutral top, add a chunky necklace from the same colour family as the bottoms for a superb look. This look can be dressed down with runners or up with pumps for easy style.

Not sure what works best for you? Come in and we'll show you!

Wishing you a happy spring and we look forward to seeing you soon at KC's.
