Taigan.com, Alys Beach Partner to Create a Luxurious Pop-up Shopping Event
July 17, 2012
Curated e-commerce site, Taigan.com, and scenic Florida beach destination Alys Beach combine their efforts to showcase a stylish pop-up shop, called The Style Soiree. Celebrating the soon-to-open ‘Alys Shoppe’, the event will showcase ten designers from the highly acclaimed online shopping site.
Taigan.com is known for its exquisite, hard-to-find fashion apparel, jewelry, accessories, home décor, gourmet food products, gifts and more.
Noted for its award-winning architecture and new urbanist design, Alys Beach is a favorite destination among sophisticated travelers. Recognizing similarities within the Taigan audience and level of aesthetic, Director of Retail for Alys Beach, Megan Trent, asked Taigan to partner in the debut event for the Alys Shoppe, The Style Soiree.
“It is a perfect fusion of our brands, and a solid introduction to what one might expect to see in The Alys Shoppe- designers not found anywhere in the region,” said Trent.
Taigan.com is pleased to have been selected by Alys Beach to create this unique shopping experience, and agrees that consumers still enjoy interacting with well-crafted items and individual designers in person as well as online.
“We really enjoy meeting our shoppers, particularly at a venue as exquisite as Alys Beach. We both share a passion for simple elegance, exquisite craftsmanship and hard to find discoveries,” said Taigan CEO, Elizabeth Nichols. “As an online business, our shoppers access us around the world, at any time. There is something special about connecting shopper and designer in this way, and featuring items we know will be wonderfully well received at this event.”
Since its launch two and a half years ago, Taigan has been recognized as the tasteful collection of lifestyle brands, making it easier for the sophisticated shopper to source for difficult to find items. Hosting 140+ merchants and growing weekly, the site has generated a healthy following among affluent shoppers, similar to the destination vacationers and homeowners at Alys Beach.
The Style Soiree is free and open to the public Thursday, July 26 from 4-8 p.m at the Caliza Pool Cabanas at Alys Beach. Vie Magazine is a headline sponsor of the event, serving a signature cocktail to attendees of the event. Taigan designers include 88 by Sandy Simonian designer jewelry of Honolulu, HI; Amaya Textiles women’s fashion apparel of Chapel Hill, NC; Bounkit designer jewelry of New York, NY; Glamourpuss NYC designer women’s fashion apparel and accessories of New York, NY; Jules Reid designer apparel of Virginia Beach, VA; Karen Adams designer stationary of Memphis, TN; Keiko designer men’s and women’s bathing suits of New York, NY; Lance Woven Leather designer home décor and accessories of East Norwalk, CT; S.
