Last week, we told you about some of the great shopping available in Downtown to get you ready for the spring season. This week, we share a few more hot spots that are guaranteed to have your wardrobe, home, and even your turntable ready to welcome the warm weather.
Named by Esquire Magazine as “one of the country’s leading specialty stores for selection and service,” Larrimor’s story is as historic as the city itself, beginning in 1939 as a one-level storefront in Downtown Pittsburgh and now celebrating over 75 years of providing made-to-measure suits, designer casual wear, and the latest in men’s and women’s clothing with an emphasis on high-quality and luxury fashion. This season, shop unique designers through a variety of upcoming trunk shows including Stizzoli fine knits April 25 – 27, an ICS Trunk Show for the ultimate sartorial look May 2 – 4, and updated classics through a St. John Trunk Show May 9 – 11.

One of the most interesting spots to peruse on your lunch break or after work, this Pittsburgh shop opened in Downtown in 2013, and offers curated used books and records at great prices, often featuring finds you won’t see anywhere else. On May 2, join them for their 6th “Bookiversary” Party, where they’re celebrating six years of business in Downtown, including free drinks.

Today, Inkwell at Oxford, located on street level in One Oxford Centre, you’ll find over twenty lines of greeting cards, memorable children’s gifts, Pittsburgh keepsakes, novelties for every interest, and a warm and inviting atmosphere.
