Summer is Looking Haute at Village of Merrick Park

Lana del Rey had it all wrong. “Summertime Sadness” is non-existent in Miami, especially if you’re shopping at Village of Merrick Park. The luxe Coral Gables-based outdoor mall, which has been opening stores left and right, has even more up its stylish sleeve.

By late summer, you’ll be able to plump your lips at a brand new Sephora and get an ultra-chic wardrobe at Vince or preppy pieces from Vineyard Vines. That’s not all. If you’re still recovering from post-traumatic Lilly Pulitzer for Target disorder, don’t fret — shop for the real thing at the new Lilly Pulitzer boutique also opening in the upcoming months.

While you wait for summer like a kid about to yell, “school’s out,” just remember that Village of Merrick Park has plenty of new spots to explore in the meantime. J. Crew Men’s and lululemon joined the shopping center earlier this month, following on the coattails of Crate & Barrell, kate spade new york, Boston Proper, Soul Cycle, Madewell and Blow Bar.
