Spring Fashion in with Flair

Eager to enjoy the sense of fresh beginnings this spring, we look forward to the promise of spring and the freshening of our attire.

Flourishing Floral Patterns

Change is absolutely inevitable this season as life is in bloom. Dressing in floral patterns this spring will make a statement as you walk into a room.

Wide Leg Pants are Adaptable

Keeping it comfortable yet classy, wide leg bottoms are being revived. Worn in many different materials, this 70’s statement is back and better. Whether this look is utilized in denim, rayon, polyester, and dare we say spandex, admiring the versatility of this look is pivotal as this silhouette transitions easily from casual to the boardroom.

Khaki and Yellow are Aesthetically Kin

Blending with nature this season, khaki and yellow will capture a feeling of
coherence in any outfit. Worn together or apart, these two colors are bringing an organic aura to spring attire.

White Dresses Wear Wonderfully

Going for the white wine instead of the red this spring is worth it. Any desired length of white dresses this season are being admired for their ethereal charm.

Physique Cinch

Easy to achieve with any belt, embracing the form of your body and emphasizing what you’ve got this spring is easy to achieve. Worn with a dress, jacket, or a high-waisted skirt, this take on sinuosity will uplift your pure, feminine body confidence.

Continuing a Legacy—Panowicz Jewelers

Founded in 1948 by Anton Panowicz Sr., the local, family-owned jewelry store recently celebrated its 72nd anniversary serving the Thurston County community. After seven decades, Panowicz Jewelers still holds true to its founding: a legacy of quality, integrity and value — helping our customers commemorate the celebrations of life is our purpose, our reason for being.

“Twenty-twenty has been a year like no other,“ Leslie Panowicz laughs. “The silver lining is a renewed appreciation for family, home and the small joys in life. Most of us have slowed down in some way; enjoying more quiet moments with family, meaningful conversations with friends and thinking about how to celebrate those we love.”

“Throughout the years, we have helped many nervous individuals find that perfect engagement ring. Be it a proposal or another special moment, it is such an honor to help our customers find that special gift that is a tangible reminder of the love and appreciation they share.”

While many things have changed, there is much more that has remained constant at Panowicz. Their entire team has remained together, working both from home and in the store, helping customers through this time with continued commitment to outstanding service and care for their customers.

Leslie shared that customers will often recount a memory of when her grandfather or father helped them choose a special piece of jewelry. “These memories are so special and help us remember why we are here.” Leslie said. Panowicz Jewelers prides itself on helping create those memories.

Trend Report: Spring 2018

Spring—the time of year when winter has finally turned the corner and we can look forward to giving our wardrobe a much-needed makeover. So what’s in store this season? The runways were lined with trends that were a throwback to the ’90s when logo T-shirts and flannels ruled. But also seen was a refreshing touch of glamour. Here are some of the top wearable trends we can expect this season.

The Classic Trench

There’s a reason that the trench coat remains a classic. It is versatile and timeless. It remains a favorite this season. Updates to this classic include feminine frills, while some designers opted for a sleeveless version. Although sleeveless might not be ideal for getting through spring showers, it offers a sleek alternative. Consider adding this update to your spring outerwear lineup.

Lady in Lavender

Spring fashion wouldn’t be complete without a palette of pastels reigning the runway. This season, lavender is the clear favorite. Try color-blocking by wearing different shades together, in a top and blazer combination, for instance.

Fringe for Days

Fringe has been popular for a few seasons and maintains its place among spring fashion. This can be a tricky trend, especially in the workplace. In love but not sure how best to wear it? Accessorize with a fringe-trimmed bag or booties— just as statement making and less distracting.

Pretty Pumps

The glitter trend is huge this season and continues south of the ankles. Designers showed us pumps emblazoned in sequins and glitter. Not just an after-hours look, glitzy heels can be worn long before the sun goes down. If sporting a full sequin top as part of your look is too much, then consider stepping out in a pair of sparkling pumps so pretty they would make Cinderella jealous.
