While the Village at Corte Madera already seems to have it all — awesome shops for mom, sweet kids clothing stores like giggle and Peek…Aren’t You Curious, and family-friendly eateries — the Marin County outdoor mall is about to get a bit more splendid. On Saturday, September 8, 2012 the LA-based lifestyle brand, Splendid is set to open its first location in the Bay Area at the Village at Corte Madera.

What began in 2002 as a quest to create the ultimate t-shirt, Splendid has since transformed the way we look at our own clothes and fabric and blossomed into a go-to retail store for anyone who’s looking for chic and comfortable clothes. Splendid is a must-visit store for any parent who loves great quality, durable and stylish attire (what parent doesn’t right?). Any mom or dad who steps into a Splendid store (they have locations in New York, Washington, Florida California, Arizona, and Canada) will fall in love with their line from the little girl tunic and leggings set to the boys crew v-necks and the too-cute reversible baby hats. Splendid even boasts apparel for adults (both women and men).

What sets Splendid apart from other brands is their ultra soft fabric and commitment to creating colorful, stylish, and wearable clothes for kiddos (and adults) of all ages. Their new Corte Madera outpost will stay true to their original SoCal beachy roots with natural wood fixtures, a daybed for daydreaming and a wall of live plants.

To celebrate their first retail location in the Bay Area, Splendid is teaming up with Crafting Community to host a grand opening on September 8, 2012 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm (click here for full event details and RSVP info). This family-friendly event will feature fun interactive workshops including a fabric and beading workshop where kids will create their own necklaces, bracelets and key-fobs. There will also be a button making workshop, succulent gardens, blocks for the tots, and a lounge area for mom and dad to enjoy sips and snacks. Not only can your kids enjoy some hands-on imaginative fun, but you can also peruse the new store and perhaps pick up some new back to school apparel. Now that’s what we call, splendid.
