Discover New London

A look inside the Lemon TwistCool ClothingPucker up and give a big smooch to Lemon Twist Store Manager Michelle Lutz who knows color, design and fashion for all sizes and budgets. Known for Lilly Pulitzer and other high-end sportswear, you'd be smart to check out the markdown rack with jaw-dropping prices. Savor the new line of Mud Pie spring bags ($39) - so affordable you can own two. Smart line of infant and toddler clothing and toys to fit a well-heeled grandmother's budget and generosity.

Visit 406 Main St., New London or call (603) 526-2555.

What's NewUpscale ResaleGo Lightly Consignment Boutique may well be the best consignment shop in the state. It's large, clean and very sophisticated. Look for great vintage and couture. Imagine yourself in an original Emilio Pucci Italian silk dress for only $410 (probably worth $1,000) or a St. John vintage three-piece suit for $120. All items carefully selected by the owner. The rust blazer by Holland & Holland of London could land you an invitation to the Royal wedding.

Stop by at 255 Newport Rd., New London, visit or call (603) 526-8200.

Best BurgerOh, yes! There's more. Peter Christian's is back in business (194 Main St., New London) and finally grilling hamburgers so amazingly yummy and juicy they could make our "Best of" list. Gourmet Garden, the new shop in the front of the restaurant, is chock full of unusual gift items. Look for the work of artist Deborah Emeny, who does fabulous hand-painted accent pieces (a bumblebee bench for a child's room is a steal at $40).

Spring BloomsOne of the newest shops in New London, Allioops!, is sure to put the "spring" in your step the minute you walk into this garden of floral fun. The "petal pushers" here are creative and sophisticated and willing to think outside the box when it comes to arrangements that "pop." A large collection of well-made gifts, including a set of six solid granite drink chillers comes with two rocks glasses for only $43.75.

For information visit or call (603) 526-2398.
