Whimsy Finds New Tucson Digs


A Park City favorite, Whimsy boutique is opening on T-town’s East Side soon, yet its location will definitely need our shopping support! It’s soon-to-be-opened new digs take residence at the corner of Camino Principal and Tanque Verde (all you TCC gals can walk there!). That site has been a wedding dress store, the first site of Embellish and more recently, a candy store–all since vacated. Whimsy, www.shopwhimsytucson.com, which previously had a location on Oracle Road, has already outfitted its new windows with adorable wraps and statement jewelry. I even scored one of the store’s cute metallic clutches at a Christmas gift exchange a few years ago! No word yet on its grand opening, so I’ll keep you posted! Nice to know this is the start of a Tanque Verde boutique trail—Whimsy, Embellish and Posh–all in one easily drivable path.

In terms of cute game-day apparel (especially for the non-coed set), Arizona is still lagging behind Texas and virtually every team in the SEC. Just browse through any  athletic apparel site. They make so much more for other schools! I mean, the University of Texas has its own MEN’s COLOGNE! Where is our Wildcat Musk, huh?

That said, there are some cool stores here in Tucson and online that offer some unique clothing and shoes that are worth checking out now. Listen, Chuck Cecil is coming back this year! Rich Rod–I’m a big fan of his, his wife is super stylish–is going to have an amazing season. I’m calling it now! Wildcat football fans are bred to always be hopeful…
