Spring cleaning. Just the words fill me with a sense of dread. But it doesn’t have to be that way – sometimes, the organization solution lies in the furniture. Instead of stashing and storing your stuff, why not add some new pieces that can house (or hide, in some cases) the little odds and ends that make the big cleaning such a daunting task?

Most Wanted: A Peek at This Week's Boutiques

 

1. Liebeskind bag. Green has been named the official hue of 2013. (Okay, technically it was emerald – but still.) This is me being a good citizen. Our A Pop of Personality: Hues for Every Style opens Wednesday, January 9, at 3PM ET.

2. Lilly Pulitzer clutch. A shiny new shipment of everything Lilly Pulitzer? I’d take its word over the groundhog’s any day. Our Lilly Pulitzer Boutique opens Monday, January 7, at 11AM ET.

3. American Apparel sweater. I wasn’t the healthiest of holiday partakers this year. (I’m a sucker for peppermint cake balls!) That said, American Apparel – bring on the oversized tops. Our American Apparel Women Boutique opens Sunday, January 6, at 11AM ET.

4. Colonial Mills storage basket. Fashion magazines are an occupational hazard (horrible life, I know) – and this basket will be perfect for keeping those ever-growing stacks cleanly out of sight. Our Resolve to Get Organized: Chic Storage Essentials Boutique opens Sunday, January 6, at 11AM ET.
