Tropically Inspired!

This is another shop I visited at Cape Harbor in Cape Coral. It is right on the water and quite a large store that carries a lot of name brands for men and women plus many other items. You will find Fresh Produce in the women's section also kids clothes from Fresh Produce. I liked the Santiki line of comfortable, easy wear casual clothing in tops, slacks, dresses, and skirts. You will also find Life is Good and Island Company clothing brands. I haven't seen Nilla Shields before. That line was unique as it has a print on the front of the garment, say a pair of pants, the back of the pants were of a plain fabric with the print from the front featured in the back on pockets! There were some funky sweats with interesting prints. Fun tees found saying, Binge responsibly, A little wine with dinner and live on an Island, or golf in paradise!
In the men's department you found Tommy Bahama. The Luau line looks a lot like Tommy Bahama with screen prints on the back of the shirts but costs less. I also like the men's shirts from Quick Silver and Bamboo Cay. Very casual in soft fabrics and great prints. There are lots of colorful tees, one said " Fish naked, it adds color to your cheeks!" Great for the boaters and fishermen...huh! There were also some cool sweats in men's.
You will find a wonderful selection for both men and women for boating, resort wear or island wear.
There is a nice selection of shoes. The sandals are a big hit. There is a big display of switch flops where you can change the look and color with a switch of fabric strap held on with Velcro. The conversation flips were the Reed Flips called Stash. The sole of the shoe opens up and there is a small compartment to stash some cash or your drivers license or the other style for you party guys, the bottom of the sole features a built-in bottle opener!! How convenient! There is a wall of Crocs in all sizes but the most adorable were the little, tiny crocs in a leopard print, oh, so cute!
Liz was working the day I was in and said the shirts, tees and foot wear are the best sellers.
There was a wide variety of all kinds of different products like doggy life vests, a whole array of sunglasses by Maui Jim, Oakley and Ray Ban among others. The light weight beach bags by Jelly Fish were great for travel as they fold up small. They have educational items for kids to keep them busy while on a trip or visiting Grandparents. Or select one of the cute Island luggage tags to assure your bag will get to you.
For the unusual find, Tiki poles that are about four feet high with the tiki face carved into it and it has solar lights. One the eyes lit up at night and the other model the light shines back on the whole tiki pole. Liz said they are great for the condo owners who want to put a touch of the islands on their balconies. You will also find a selection of tiki mugs.
So you can find a little of everything from infants to accessories in here.
