How to "Shop Like Local"

Palomar, a Kimpton Hotel at 117 South 17th Street at Sansom in Philadelphia, offers a great service for those visiting Philadelphia: Shop Like a Local. 

Written by style expert Ian Michael Crumm, the online local fashion guide gives all Philly visitors a great cheat sheet of where to find the city's most fashionable establishments. The guide gives travelers a list of stores unique to Philadelphia, but with national recognition. The guide identifies nearby shops and boutiques that have a local touch that you can take home for out-of-towners

ellelauri was named in Crumm's latest guide: Shop Like a Local Vol. II which was unveiled earlier this month at an event hosted by the hotel and Alysia Reiner, who stars in Orange is the New Black, a huge hit series on Netflix.

Pictured below, Alysia is wearing a dress from the ellelauri boutique in Rittenhouse.

It was an amazing event attended by the most fashionable Philadelphians raising money for a good cause. The auction and the bidding on the signed players jerseys was a very entertaining and fun part of the evening. Our favorite FOX 29’s Good Day Show personalities, Alex Holley and Mike Jerrick hosted the event.
