Fireworks at Capitol Boutique

There is plenty that will elicit oohs and ahhs at Laura Vinroot Poole's Capitol boutique, which has completed its move from Phillips Place to the Morrison development (at Sharon and Colony roads).

I stopped by for a quick preview of the space, which Poole says she and her staff are aiming to open to the public on Saturday.


The total space for the Phillips Place store was around 2,500 square feet, buyer Ruth Caldwell says. The new tw0-story space is more like 6,000 square feet and includes a court yard, an elevator and numerous exeterior display windows.

The courtyard will soon have a vertical garden installed by Patrick Blanc.

And the clothes? Impressive. I had a hard time taking my eyes off the Lanvin bridal collection.
