Garnet Hill, is that you?

I've never really shopped at Garnet Hill (have you?), but I stumbled on their site today and was really surprised. How pretty is this trench coat ($138) and blue dot dress ($138)? I'd love to wear both of them on a seaside vacation this summer.

Update: Garnet Hill just contact me and wants to offer 20% off to all Cup of Jo readers with the code E1W140B until June 17th. Let's go for it! :) Thanks, Garnet Hill!

I love it! The polka dots, the comfy factor, and the bag are perfect together. I am loving that midis are in style because that's all I own.

Anna said...

I'm always surprised at how CUTE the Garnet Hill stuff is. I did a whole post on it last summer on my blog because I was drooling over just about everything in their summer catalog. But I too, have never shopped there.

Joanna Goddard said...

anna, i know! i thought it was kind of grandmotherly, but i'm realizing how cute some of their pieces are!

kathy@dirtandsunshine said...

Joanna, I used to get sheets from them (really nice patterns). Haven't tried their clothes but they look so cute... thanks for sharing!!

P.S. I loved reading about your SF adventures. We haven't been to Il Cane Rosso yet but are now making plans to thanks to you.

I'm wearing a Garnet Hill sweater right now! Our bedspread is also from them - super cute, lightweight grey cotton with huge chenille circles. I love Garnet Hill (especially the sales!).

Thrillin' said...

There are lots of great pieces at Garnet Hill. I bought a white linen tunic there last year that is one of my favorite summer staples!

M. said...

great look! really loooove the dress!

Maia McDonald said...

I always kind've associated Garnet Hill with bedding and clothes for older women, but I might have to rethink that now.

Joanna Goddard said...

oh, yes, kathy, you have to go, you're going to love it!!!

stephanie [the merry way] said...

Never shopped there, but checking it out now - that dress is perfection!

Something White said...

How much I would like to have this blue dot dress! But unfortunately they won´t ship internationally :(
Is there anyone out there who could help me to get this dress?? :)
Thanks a lot in advance and thank you, Joanna, for this lovely link!
Best regards, Marjolijn (Belgium)

both such cute and easy pieces.

Kirsten said...

Yep, bought a bed skirt from there...I was also in Franconia, NH a bit ago and my sis-in-law pointed out that they were based out of there. They have a huge store and outlet there. It's kind of a hit-or-miss place in my opinion, but that dress/trench looks lovely!

Vic Tullman said...

The blue Born sandals are on sale for $88.00!

kersey said...

oh, they're lovely! You would look stunning in these Joanna!

dreamday said...

i've never ordered from garnet hill but always fold over my favorite pages when i get their catalog! this dress is perfect for a seaside vacation. july 23 can't come soon enough!!!

Kendall Marie said...

I love that dress! super cute!I never thought to shop there

jiminycrow said...

I'll speak as someone familiar with photoshoots... I think the model is wearing a coat over that dress because the dress is unflattering and the stylist stepped in to fix it.

i love garnet hill and actually have bought a couple of their dresses before! i recently got a pair of "summery" boots for my birthday too that i'd been oogling for a while!

Sage and Style said...

I've loved Garnet Hill's bedding for years (they have awesome pillows too!) but I've always thought the clothes were a bit blah. However, I do think they're wising up. Case in point: this dress. SUPER sweet for summer!

amy said...

That dress is adorable... I have never purchased clothing from them, but I did just order the blue minnow sheets for our boy bunkroom..

Jenn said...

I would love to go on a seaside vacation this summer

Nomadic D. said...

I've never bought clothes from them either, but I have had sheets from them which I loved, and lusted after many many many more sets of sheets and towels and throws and whatnot. Don't know why I never paid much attention to the clothes when everything else is so damn wonderful.

Amy said...

They always have a fun selection of flats and sandals, and their dresses (and nightdresses!) are so easy and pretty. Don't forget the flannel sheets in the winter ( love them!).

ellen said...

I love the Garnet Hill catalog! I hear they have an outlet in NH...

Jessica Ochs said...

I have a thing for their adorable wool slippers for kids. But now I will have to check out the new catalog... That dress is lovely.

Giulia said...

Oh I love GH. I started shopping there a few years ago. My mom had always done so but I'd not really noticed. They have some great winter stuff later in year. Beautiful gloves, scarves, hats, etc.

And flannel sheets, yes.

Looks a little imported to me!

Rachel said...

Never heard of them, but really great products!

CinnamonInk said...

Mmm love the dress... feels like summer in a dress.

Love the dress.

isabug said...

My mom would always order sheets and things from there but recently has been sending me links to the clothes - they're actually quite cute (especially the coats)!

I was as surprised as you!

Sidereal Day said...

I haven't ordered anything from them yet but get their catalog, they have some really cute things including these sandals:

also, they have great sheets too!

Stephanie @ Blawsom said...

I've never been a fan of trench coats... but that one is really pretty & feminine looking :)

dc said...

My mother-in-law gave me a very generous gift card to Garnet Hill so I shopped there a lot! Love their stuff.

mixette said...

They have about 25 different sizes of pillow inserts so I buy bunches when they go on sale. But if you look at the clothing reviews (which I'm glad they have) there seem to be lots of issues with the sizing and fit, so I've never ordered anything to wear.

Designs Good said...

I get their catalog. I usually like some of their shoes, but noticed a lot of cute sundresses this time around.

I'm Christy! said...

I have two cashmere sweaters from garnet hill (just the basic cardigan) and they're amazing. they go with everything and have lasted for years while managing to look practically brand new. Much better quality than JCrew, in my opinion, which tends to pill instantly.
I think their stuff is so cute.

rebecca said...

i recently ordered from garnet hill. like you, i was impressed at the cuteness! too bad there sizes are crazy weird. i returned every single thing... sadly.

Anonymous said...

I just love that trench coat. I always have thought of garnet hill as a bit old school and fuddy duddy, but I am changing my view.

Anonymous said...

I have shopped with Garnet Hill and find the quality of the clothes to superb! But - sigh- pricey. Lynn

Carol said...

I have that trench coat----in a box ready to send back. It runs LARGE. Im a 5'9" 150-lb woman with broad shoulders and found the medium size to be half a size too large. I'm debating whether to trade it for a small (which has to be too small) or have it altered.

Anonymous said...

These are so pretty - but order in a smaller size. I really like the polka dot dress!

Spiral Style said...

I'm a big fan of Garnet Hill. It is true that the clothes do run large so order a smaller size. If you are an Xsmall, they may not fit.

Brittany. said...

i love the dress! out of price range though..

Kelley said...

I also love the dress and Garnet Hill! Their stuff is so nice, the quality is amazing! I worked there when I was in college and miss my employee discount!! :) If you are ever in New Hampshire, they have a great outlet store there!!

asiajane said...

I have a Garnet Hill cashmere sweater I love, plus one of their quilts on my bed! They have some really beautiful things...

Michemily said...

I just looked at their site and I sighed and sighed! Everything is so gorgeous but with hefty prices. Too bad.

Lacey said...

I gave my friend's 3 children each a pair of the coordinating pj's for Christmas last year. GH has the cutest patterns for kids pajamas of anywhere around - especially at Christmas...

Auntie Bliss said...

I love those both!
I've shopped Garnet Hill for linens and love to give giftcards for gifts!

That's Ms. Amy to You... said...

Haven't purchased clothes from them, but I did steal some Hable stockings at a ridiculously low price after Christmas. That alone has made me a lifelong fan.

Sydney said...

love the entire look! but then MONEY is always a problem :(

New reader of your blog! Your posts are just so lovely and fun to read.

I would definitely wear this trench - and not a bad price either!

Maria said...

LOVE Garnet Hill- I live about 40 min from Franconia and have been shopping there for years. They used to have a crazy blow out sale every year at their factory. We would get there at 4 in the morning and wait in line for hours- but it was sooo worth it! You could get gorgeous shoes, cashmere, quilts, lingerie, everything for about 5-20 bucks! When you were waiting in line they would hand you gigantic garbage bags for your finds and one year it was starting to rain outside- some uninitiated thought the garbage bags were for ponchos....no one told them different! It was a madhouse in there but really really fun. Afterwards it was a big meal at Polly's Pancake parlor. Good times....

Heather MK said...

Oooh, good find! I just checked them out and I am loving the Donald Pliner Platform sandals!!!

The Fab Miss B said...

I've been pleasantly surprised by them too- I bought three lovely cashmere sweaters last spring on super clearance and have worn them constantly.

Anonymous said...

I love Garnet Hill, especially their sale and clearance items. You can get really great brands at very reasonable prices.

Joanna Goddard said...

thanks for these great comments! good point about the fit -- would be smart to order a size smaller. and heather MK, your profile photo is too cute :)

Joanna,

I grew up going to the Garnet Hill tent sales at Loon Mountain in New Hampshire - we lived just 45 minutes away! I love their clothes and I'm so happy for you that you've stumbled upon them. If you get up to Sugar Hill, NH check out their outlet shop - the bedding seconds along are worth the trip.

:)

Katie said...

Joanna-- That dress is now $50! Go get it!
