April showers have rolled in, and they’ve brought with them our April FINDS list. Although we can’t promise these items will protect you from any impending wet weather, we can promise they will brighten your day. Take a look at our picks in fashion and accessories, home décor, beauty, food and drinks from local shops around town. The list is long with options aplenty!
FASHION & ACCESSORIES
Oiselle Roga shorts
Our favorite part about updating our spring wardrobes is adding warm-weather workout gear. First on our shopping list is a pair of Oiselle Roga running shorts. Their stretch makes them both flattering and comfortable. Stash your keys and cards in the rear zip pocket before hitting the pavement! If you want to cross these off your shopping list, snag a pair from Fleet Feet Sports for $48.
We often make our way over to Belle Meade Jewelry and Repair for the repair side of their business, but this unique bracelet has us eager to add something new to our jewelry collection. Owner Scott Isaacs crafted this stunning piece, and we were struck by every detail, from the corner adornments to the unusual shape. Stop by to try it on, and see if you can leave without it — we dare you!
Teething has never been more fashionable, for Mom anyway. January Moon just launched four new spring necklace styles, including “Rose.” The Rose necklace features red and pink shades and is 100 percent non-toxic — safe for Baby, stylish for Mom. Snag one online for $64.

Stuart Weitzman flats
Embrace your inner ballerina and snag a pair of these flats from Jamie. The ballerina flats are made of suede (black and nude) with wrap-around ankle ribbons. Pair them with jeans and a white tee, or dress them up with an elegant tea-length gown for your next black tie affair. Shop both colors at Jamie for $398.
Aidai Bukon scarves are made by hand and incorporate artistic felt pieces. This scarf is perfect for the colorphobe as its black and white coloring makes it a neutral while the red and orange pieces bring in a pop of color. These scarves won’t be around long so be sure to head to Zelda as soon as possible to make this yours for $183.

(MALIN + GOETZ) moisturizer
We recently discovered (MALIN + GOETZ) during a stay at 21C Hotel and were thrilled to discover that it is carried locally at Green Pea Salon.

The moisturizer is made with Vitamins E and B5 as well as glycerin, hyaluronic acid, allantoin and chamomile.

Boasting soft lines and soothing colors, this ceramic vase caught our eye on a recent trip to Vignette. With a fresh, modern feel, it is perfect for holding a bright collection of fresh-cut, long-stemmed flowers. Find it for $196 and spruce up your home for spring!

Serve seasonal strawberries, refreshing ice cream or a heaping portion of noodles in one of these ceramic bowls. Made by Anderson Bailey and Jessie Bean of Bean and Bailey Ceramics in Chattanooga, these bowls are food-, microwave- and dishwasher-safe and cute to boot. Shop these and more from the collection at Harvest Wine Market. Bowls are $30 each.
This cabinet appears to have been last used in the ’70s, and we think it’s the perfect touch of industrial style for any space. We discovered this gem, which can be used for both fashion and function, hidden among many other treasures at Preservation Station. It can be yours for $475 (unless we snag it first!).
Fill these vases with spring blooms to give your home a refreshing look for the new season. Even when left empty, they are interesting décor. Buy one for $22, or buy many and fill them all! You can find these at Maxi B. Home.
FOOD & DRINKS
Miraval Provence rosé
You may recognize the name of this award-winning rosé because it just so happens to be Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s wine. Celeb status aside, this delicate rosé is known for its floral and sweet spice notes. Find it at Midtown Corkdorks Wine, Spirits & Beer for $24.99.
Ice cream sandwiches
It is time! Time for Christie Cookie Co.‘s seasonal ice cream sandwiches! They are launching this week, and some of our favorite combinations include chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream, sugar cookies with peach ice cream and snickerdoodle cookies with salted caramel ice cream. Buy them at the Christie Cookie bakery in Germantown for $4, or buy a batch of dough at the bakery for $12 and make your own at home.
Tennessee Artisan Honey
Local honey is a springtime diet staple as it’s thought to keep allergies at bay. We particularly love this Tennessee honey that is infused with ginger flavors, making it an extra nice treat. Spread it on a piece of toast, or pair it with creamy, tangy cheeses. Pick up a jar at Tinwings for $10.
Open Farm dog food
If we treat ourselves to only the best, our pups deserve the same, right? Open Farm dog food, made by a family business, is made with sustainable and ethical farming practices.
