PIPERLIME UNVEILS A NEW SITE FEATURING SOCIAL SHOPPING TECHNOLOGY AND STYLE ADVICE FROM FASHION “IT” GIRLS
Have you seen the new Piperlime web site? Gone is its signature lime logo which has been replaced solely by the word “Piperlime” in a simple slate blue. The new look & feel of the site is decidedly more style blog than online shopping site with it’s integrated social media feeds and guest editor features. The social shopping feature is cool – we love seeing how “it” girls work the trends. We did, however, find ourselves wishing the social images linked back to Instagram so we could follow these stylish users, but no such luck. We were happy to see the Piperlime Sale section in tact and chock full of newly reduced items. Shop the Sale now for great Spring/Summer clearance items, and learn more about the new shopping experience at Piperlime below.

From Piperlime’s recent press release: “Piperlime, the online boutique known for being shoppers’ connection to chic, is excited to reveal a new online shopping experience, featuring inspirational social media feeds, and introduce the first-ever Piperlime Collection. Since Piperlime’s launch in 2006, the brand has sought to meet customers’ desire to always be street-style ready. Inspired by their always-evolving, social media-savvy girl, Piperlime has enhanced its website to include streams of images filtered directly from Instagram providing customers with endless inspiration from fashion “it” girls to everyday women with effortless style. Shoppers will be able to click on these social images and shop the items to make these looks their own. Piperlime now feels like you are shopping the social feeds of the girl who always gets it right. Piperlime product pages will also feature styling ideas from bloggers and influencers, showing unique ways to style the same must-have pieces for each season.
“We’re excited to integrate social media into our customers’ shopping experiences,” says Lexi Tawes, Vice President and General Manager of Piperlime. “Interweaving technology into our incredible mix of product and fashion expertise is making Piperlime more than a shopping destination; we’ve become a style resource.”
Piperlime will continue to feature the most influential contemporary brands while introducing new up-and-coming labels – emulating the way its customer likes to dress with a mix of brands and price points. In addition to the site updates, the brand is revealing a new logo that embodies Piperlime as a true, elevated fashion destination.
“Our customer is the contemporary girl who loves to curate her own looks,” says Jamie Lewin, Director of Design and Trend. “While we are always inspired by the runway, our girl looks more to street style and social media for tips on how to mix and match all of the pieces in her own way. She blends investment and affordable pieces in a way that’s cool, feminine and always true to herself.”
Lewin leads the design team for the first-ever Piperlime Collection, an elevated assortment of apparel inspired by the chic and covetable style of the Piperlime girl. It will be available on www.piperlime.com and at the Piperlime SoHo store in September 2014. The trend-driven collection will feature 68 classic pieces ranging in price from $34-$170, and will evolve each season, complementing the other brands offered on the site.
