New York's savviest shoppers know all about Jill Lindsey. Our sister site Racked NY even crowned the designer the busiest woman in Brooklyn, and for good reason: she's been holding down her namesake boutique in the hipster borough's Fort Greene nabe since 2014, offering a unique curation of indie brands and even a café. Early summer, Angelenos will score a taste of Jill Lindsey's vibe with the opening of her first West Coast shop.
The designer and stylish shopkeep tells us that her second-ever store will be located in a "soon to be announced hotel in Malibu," so let the guessing games begin. (Calamigos Ranch? Malibu Beach Inn?) She adds that the space will feature "select items from our flagship Brooklyn store, as well as some independent makers from the West Coast."
Take a peek at Jill Lindsey's current offerings here, and stay tuned for exact opening details.

But above all, we need a strategy to support small businesses now, while they are closed, and also once they reopen. Offering loans will, in the end, hinder our success and add more stress to our already strained financials. Instead, we need to ensure that our businesses will be fully protected not only through this pandemic, but for any unforeseeable future disasters. We need rent abatement. We need grants that consider location (some cities are more expensive than others) and a better timeline to report losses. We need current loan payments and bills to be deferred until after businesses reopen. We need an economic stimulus for a percentage of lost sales. And we need paid leave for all hourly employees both full and part-time. This is what support would really look like.
