Love from Lucy

When you see the words ‘Market Day’ painted on a big floral sheet flying high above the footpath, make a beeline for this beloved Burleigh boutique. If it weren’t enough to redefine the way we try and buy garments by fledgeling designers, love from Lucy now delights us with spontaneous tea-drinking, cupcake-munching fashion events and live music. You can still drop by any old day for a friendly chat and an absolute palooza of locally-made dresses, bags, jewels and cozzies – many are one-offs sewn from pretty recycled fabrics and no, you don’t have to be a waif to zip them up. In past lives this kaleidoscope of colour has turned its floor into a beach (with real sand) and a field (with flowers and real grass) and it’s present collection hovers somewhere between festival digs, flouncy finery and beach bunny attire. That’s enough to have you walking away whistling the I Love Lucy theme while feeling mighty fine about doing your bit to nurture the Coast’s up-and-coming talent.
