Greenbrier Pit Stops

On our way to the Greenbrier last month, we stopped at the Leesburg Outlets. Visiting the Vineyard Vines Outlet was a must.

There were racks of color coordinated ties...

and they also had a lot of pieces from the Kentucky Derby Collection. My favorite print was the patchwork pattern that lined the blazers.

I found the Derby scarf that sold out online last year...boy did those shopping gods really step it up with the scarf that got away!

After the outlets we stopped at Lightfoot for lunch. Lightfoot isn't your typical space for a restaurant because it use to be a bank and the bar actually surrounds a safe. We thoroughly enjoyed the Zucchini Fries & Feta Dipping Sauce as well as the French Onion Soup that was topped with Gruyere, Goat Cheese and Truffle Oil.

The winner of the Silk Knot Earrings is Short Blonde...Happy early Valentine's Day!

I don't know how I missed that you went to The Greenbrier! We are going in April on our way back from a trip to Kentucky! I'd love to hear any recommendations on things to do there. We are planning on taking the skeet shooting class which I am soooo excited about!

Sadly, our route will not take us near the outlets...those were some great finds!

I love Lightfoot! My husbands dad and stepmother lived in Leesburg for many years and we had many meals at Lightfoot. They have wonderful desserts. Their gift cards are actually little gold coins that have a stamp of the building on them. Very neat looking!

Love Leesburg, so much less depressing than other outlets!

Knot Just Nautical said...

That food looks delicious! I am glad I've never come across a VV outlet, i would be doing a lot more damage than a scarf :-) I was wearing my Barbour today too!! xx

Sundresses and Smiles said...

I snagged the most adorable pink corduroy skirt at the VV Outlet in Leesburg this past fall--I want to go back! I also think that soup sounds delicious, anything with truffle oil is good in my book!

Kerr said...

I would love some thing from their derby collection. Great find!

Beth Dunn said...

My Nana is in Leesburg and we always go to Lightfoot when I visit along with the Lilly store Persnickety Palm and the outlets. Great scarf find! :)

are the ties much cheaper @ outlet??

Let The Tide Pull Your Dreams Ashore said...

I want to say the ties were $45...you can always give them a ring!
