Downtown Menlo Park is filled with some great places to dine, hang and best of all, shop! has been a staple in the downtown community for almost 10 years and continues to act as a place for locals to find some of the best pieces to add to their wardrobe. Pink Tangerine specializes in women's clothing and accessories including dresses, cover-ups, tee's and tanks, pants, denim, jewelry and accessories.
Summer is coming up quick, and this is the best time to pull out your favorite summer pieces and start strutting your stuff. Pink Tangerine gives you a piece to add some wonderful trends of Spring/Summer 2011 to complete this collection of summer favorites. Bold patterns such as stripes are popping up everywhere and Pink Tangerine has some of the perfect frocks such as a Tysa long navy and white striped summer dress. Pair this with a gold statement necklace, also found in store, and you are set for a day of errands, vacationing or heading out with the family.
Now as for the shop, you couldn't find a more hip place if you tried. Blush pink walls and a statement zebra print rug are the first things to notice when entering the store. With a bit of black trim on the cabinets and some pink velvet and gold chairs in the corner, the overall look of the shop is complete. Pink Tangerine tries to carry unique designers in their store such as Roarke, which you won't find anywhere else in Menlo Park. If nothing else, they try to carry a collection from a designer that is unique only to Pink Tangerine. Of course, Pink Tangerine also loves to feature independent and lesser known brands to give shoppers a step up on their look by wearing up-and-coming trends and hot designers such as Seattle local Juliette Rodger.
Other hip brands include the ever popular J Brand collection of jeans and Paige Premium Denim. Shoppers can also expect a collection from Mary-Kate and Ashley's high end line, Elizabeth and James, as well as James Perce, Rag and Bone, Rebecca Taylor and more.
Owner Katie Simpson is also very proud to carry a collection by Global Girls. This organization works with the women of Africa, most of whom are HIV positive, to create a collection of bags and shoes. This mission statement of this organization is "to promote self-sustainability among African women by providing much-needed, income generating opportunities specifically for the disenfranchised. Shoppers who purchase these one-of-a-kind shoes or handbags can feel great supporting and giving back to organization's who are assisting these women of Kenya.
