This month's local style crush is a very special one. The Cotton Patch is what we call a boutique veteran. The fashionable shop opened its doors in 1985 and has been serving the ladies of Lexington for 30 years. Offering a variety of merchandise with helpful staff always on hand to give advice, the Cotton Patch is a staple shopping spot for many women in the Bluegrass. The ladies have recently done a few renovations to spruce up the store and are looking forward to the bright colors and trends of the spring season. They are preparing and excited to bring in fun and flattering styles for Keeneland and the Derby which will both be here before we know it. We've chosen a few of our favorite items currently on the Cotton Patch floor, from clothing to jewelry to items for the home. If you find something you like and are in the Tates Creek area, pop in and enjoy a little retail therapy. The store's official anniversary is in August, so be on the lookout for celebrations and announcements to come.
