’Tis the season to shop small! — There is nothing I love more than strolling our local stores in Wilmington. Just a few miles from our home, we have quaint and beautifully curated shops I frequent just before the holidays. On today’s outing, I visited one of my favorites – Airlie Moon. Typically, I can find just about everything I need for friends and family in the shop. The assortment includes home decor, accessories, artwork, candles and more.


The winter trends continue here, so I bundled up for my most recent visit to The Shops at Lumina. Comfortable slacks plus a printed top (just enough color for my comfort level) make up the ideal outfit for an afternoon stroll. Because I am a sucker for morning coffee, I darted out early and required a warm coat for the “adventure.” This Berber fleece is the perfect weight – just enough to knock out the chill and keep me cozy all day.


National started as a small-scale, local business, and has since grown to service women nationwide. We are so grateful for each and every one of you who make up our National family. Growing up in Lexington, I have seen firsthand the power of small business to elevate a community. Thank you for supporting National, and consider “shopping small” for the holiday season!



With love and gratitude,
