Embrace Autumn in Merivale


At the heart of the desirable Merivale shopping precinct, you will find the iconic destination store Corso Merivale.

 

The exquisite boutique is characterised by notable brands not found elsewhere in Christchurch and it is their goal to ensure that Corso Merivale sets itself apart in quality, selection and service. As we head into autumn it gives us an opportunity to embrace the cooler weather and all its characteristics. Strong rich colours in whisky, dark inks and saffron can be found in a beautiful range of hand blocked linen cushions made at the hands of talented artisans. Natural materials are the focus at Corso Merivale; cashmere, wool, linen and organic cotton, just to touch on a few.

Along with the change of season comes an exciting change in beautiful quality homewares and lifestyle ranges on offer, from the comfort of Danish house shoes Glerups to the stunning fragrances from Belgium, Baobab candles. Cashmere separates by Laing Home are enduringly stylish, while Missoni’s very latest towelling selection will add vibrancy to your bathrooms, and layering textures and colours will give you depth, creating a rich and inviting ambience.

 

For the fashion savvy, R.M. Williams’s boots have marked their territory firmly at Corso Merivale. These iconic boots will endure for many years and only get better with age. Bassike continues to be a firm favourite, while Good & Co.’s unique winter range of merino and silk scarves are a touch of luxury either as a gift or for yourself.

Corso Merivale invites you to come and be inspired at 209-211 Papanui Road, or visit www.corsomerivale.nz.

A Yule So Cool: Corso Merivale


It’s that time of year when our thoughts turn to Christmas, and with loved ones coming to visit, you want your home to look as welcoming and beautiful as possible.

If your Christmas décor requirements are for tasteful, stylish and unique pieces, then boutique homeware and lifestyle store Corso Merivale is for you. Owner Jackie Kirwan-Green says customers often remark that they wish they’d visited her store before going elsewhere.  “Because everything here – from our Christmas décor, to our collections of ceramics, glassware, homeware, linen, furniture, luxury gifts and clothing – is truly exquisite merchandise.”

Jackie mentions a recent arrival in-store, the uber-cool brand Le DD, as an example. This indoor/outdoor beachwear and accessories brand is Italian made, and described as entering a world of lightness and comfort.  “Le DD unisex footwear, bags and homeware are ideal for baches and coastal living, or a day out on the beach.” With a slight shift from the usual European tone of her wares, Jackie is now an agent for R. M. Williams boots.

“We’re thrilled to stock the latest in R.M. Williams boots – whether you’re a city woman or country girl, these handcrafted genuine leather boots are sophisticated, yet practical. They are a timeless classic in fashionable footwear.”

 


For Christmas inspiration, Corso Merivale is hosting an in-store Christmas celebration (Hawkesbury Building, Aikmans road) on 8 November, 5pm – 8pm, where all of its new Christmas range will be on display. Phone  03 355 4228 or visit: www.corsomerivale.nz.
