Every summer when what feels like half of New York decamps to the Hamptons, some of their favorite stores come along for the ride. Check out the list below for the pop ups open this summer in the Hamptons. Let us know if we missed any!
Arrived in the Hamptons and realized you forgot you bathing suit? Or worse, realized your bathing suit wasn't ~fashionable~ enough for the most important part of the weekend, the photo evidence. In either case, don't fret, just head over to Caribbean inspired brand Ochie Swim's pop-up on Main Street. While you are there, may as well stock up on the rest of your beachwear for the summer.
Say you invited 15 of your nearest and dearest to spend the weekend at your home in Southampton. You know you need to feed them but you look around you kitchen and realize your dinner party essentials feel a bit meh. Head over to the Snowe Home pop-up (make an appointment first if you are that kind of person) to restock your kitchen and home essentials in their clean, minimalist aesthetic. Whether you are in need of new plates or just enjoy browsing, Snowe Home will be hosting events in the store on weekends so check out their Instagram to stay updated about events such as a cheese plating 101 class from Murray's Cheese.
THE WESTSIDE / EVERAFTER
We are already fans of The Westside's NYC locations (and have reviewed the UES store in detail here.) The Westside is one of our favorite places to shop brands we have only seen on Instagram or discover brands we've never heard of. The Hamptons location is shares space with it's kids and teens shop Everafter, so don'd be afraid to make a trip here a family affair. Because of the California theme and aesthetic, The Westside lends itself particularly well to vacation dressing and its regular customers are almost certainly Hamptons goers so it makes sense that it has opened a Hamptons pop-up to meet its customers where they are and give them the clothes they want all summer.
THE WHITE COMPANY
The White Company is a British home products and womenswear company. Stop by if you are looking for a quick hostess gift as you are sure to find something among the relatively broad range of products. You can pick up anything from candles to picture frames to bathrobes to bedding here and the prices are pretty reasonable, so this pop-up will probably come into regular rotation for you as it will be useful for almost any occasion. If you fall in love with the aesthetic, don't worry the brand has an NYC shop in the Flatiron district for all of your regular life needs.
BRIDGEHAMPTON / WAINSCOTT POP-UPS:
CREDO BEAUTY X SERENA + LILY
Credo Beauty is doing a pop-up inside the Serena + Lily store this summer. We recently visited Credo in Williamsburg (which you can read about here) and learned all about their approach to clean beauty. Head over to the pop-up, if you are interested in learning more about what clean beauty means or trying on some new products. Credo would be a particularly good place to go if you know you are going to spending all day in the sun and would rather do so after having applied a "clean" sunscreen and are not sure what brand is best for you.
Hamptonites know Knockout Beauty as one of the Hamptons's preeminent seasonal beauty pop-ups year over year. This beauty destination features a curated selection of beauty products and treatments from founder Cayli Cavaco Reck. Book a treatment or a skin consultation at this very attractive boutique and you'll instantly shed any lingering city-related anxiety so you'll be ready to go for the weekend.
EAST HAMPTON / AMAGANSETT POP-UPS:
St. Frank is a San Francisco based luxury, handcrafted textiles and home decor brand. If you've been meaning to up your home style game with some global accents, stop by the check out the beautiful framed textiles from all over the world. Each textile comes with a back story as to its provenance and many are vintage pieces sourced from places from Uzbekistan to Senegal. Stop by if you are ready to add some maximal-ism to your otherwise minimalist life.
STONEY CLOVER LANE
Need something bright and cheerful to go along with your summer mood? Stop by Stoney Clover Lane to pick up colorful, customizable beach bags, bracelets and other assorted accessories. If you have a tween or teen this will be their new favorite place, but don't sleep on it for adults either. Everyone needs a beach bag customized with shell applique letters for hiding their sunglasses and magazine (and maybe a bottle of rose...shh we won't tell) at the beach.
REFORMATION BEACH HOUSE
If you love Reformation, but also love the Hamptons, you're in luck because you can now shop your favorite sustainable brand without having to leave Main Street.Stop by the Reformation Beach House to stock up on your favorite floral blouses and floaty dresses. Don't miss the Catbird pop-up at the beach house from July 12-14. Take advantage of this opportunity to shop Catbird pieces from the comfort of an airy Hamptons store instead of the brand's usual cramped Williamsburg quarters (check out our Williamsburg guide to read more about Catbird).
Sabah is back in Amagansett for a third straight summer so you certainly are not too late to pick up a pair of your new shoes of the summer. These slippers are both supremely comfortable and incredibly stylish, so you will probably find yourself coming back for a second pair in a new color or to buy Sabahs for all of your loved ones. The shoes are perfect for the summer lifestyle as they will take you from the car, to the house, to Main Street and even to the beach. The pop-up will also host various events throughout the summer so ask them about them when you visit the store so you don't miss out.
SAG HARBOR POP-UPS:
ALA VON AUERSPERG
Ala Isham has named the various prints in her Spring / Summer 2019 collection after towns in the Hamptons, so it feels only appropriate that she is hosting her first ever pop-up in the area this summer. Stop by the shop to check out the beautiful selection of chic caftans, dresses and ponchos. These are the types of clothing you can make a statement in at your next summer party so stop by, pick out your favorite pattern and be ready for the compliments to pour in from everyone around.
In case you couldn't get your Goopy wellness fix in the city, Goop is here for you with its summer cottage. The space is designed with a relaxed beachy aesthetic featuring furniture and decor in wood, cotton and linen in various shades of creams and blues. Stop by to shop the clean beauty products Goop is known for, in addition to a special Hamptons selection of jewelry. The pop-up will be hosting events throughout the summer including an event with made-to-measure sandal company Amanu and a launch party for the Cesta x La Ligne collection. Stay up-to-date through the events section on their website to make sure you don't miss out.
Frances Valentine is another brand that has picked up and moved out east with its customers. The brand wrapped up its Upper East Side pop-up in May and promptly headed out to the Hamptons to set up shop in Sag Harbor. Stop by to check out the curated selection of summer accessories including basket bags, beach totes, sandals and caftans in addition to a curated selection of vintage beach reads, pool floats, cocktail bar tools and more. The pop-up is housed in Sagtown Coffee so next time you are in need of a quick pick me up, head here to grab a coffee with a side of pool floats.
Matriark is a new concept from industry veteran Paula Assui Reed that exclusively features women-owned brands (get it, Matriarch?). This is the first physical location for the brand and is a great place to discover new brands in fashion, beauty, art and home decor and to shop with a good conscience - 10% of sales will be profits will be donated to The Retreat which provides domestic violence and sexual assault services to Eastern Long Island.
AYR BEACH HOUSE
While AYR is known for its seasonless essentials, we happen to think their summer offerings are quite seasonal, and in a very good way. Stop by the Beach House to pick up summer essentials like white jeans, linen dresses, and gauzy t-shirts. You'll be prepared for everything from dinner on Main Street to a walk along the beach.
If an Instagram-ready pool and an Instagram-ready bathing suit doesn't feel like enough to you, may we suggest an Instagram-ready manicure? Book a fancy manicure at Chillhouse's Montauk pop-up and then sit back, relax and sip a cocktail while a manicurist paints a "Bitter Bite" theme complete with grapefruit slices onto your nails.
COFFEE & FLOWERS
If you've been watching Big Little Lies you might be familiar with the idea of a totally outdoor coffee shop (best not to ask too many questions about the BLL version...). While you may not be able to spend your days gossiping in cars like the Monterey 5, you can make your outdoor coffee shop dreams come true. Head over to Coffee & Flowers, a pop-up that meshes together three distinct but important concepts: flowers, specialty coffee and lifestyle apparel and accessories. While that might sound like a bit much, the space is really just a beautiful place right off the beach to have a cup of coffee from The Elk in the presence of some incredible floral displays. Plus you can pick up some flowers to take home from Popup Florist or a cover-up from Cynthia Rowley to wear on your way back to the ocean. Talk about a productive coffee stop.
BLUESTONE LANE BEACH COLLECTIVE
Hybrid coffee shops seem to be a thing in Montauk. Guess if you have the stamina to make it all the way out there in traffic you deserve a little caffeine with your shopping. Bluestone Lane has reopened its summer concept for the fourth straight year. True to its Aussie roots the retail space features fashion labels from Australian designers. Stop by to check out the hottest new swim, sports, fashion and accessories brands from Down Under while you sip an iced matcha latte with oat milk.
