We wager that you have at least one Kiehl’s product in your medicine cabinet. Since 1851, the skin savior has been producing wildly popular beauty products like its Creme de Corps (8.4 fl. oz., $30) and Creamy Eye Treatment ($29). The new location at Tysons Corner Center feeds our addiction (1961 Chain Bridge Road; 703-734-1252) with personal consultations and demos at the Shave Bar for men.
With styles like the silk, cap-sleeved “All Occasions Dress” (shown, $210) and the jacquard “Effortless Top” ($72), spring pieces from Nana’s (3068 Mount Pleasant St. NW; 202-667-6955) in-house clothing line provide simple-chic wardrobe therapy. Items designed by shop owner Jackie Flanagan riff on vintage fashions her grandma wore (which also inspired the shop’s name). It’s all sewn in Adams Morgan, meaning outfits are conceived locally but could take you anywhere.
A Bottle Of Scots

Modeled after a Scottish beer, the seasonal offering ($11 a six-pack, liquor stores and Port City Brewing Company, 3950 Wheeler Ave, Alexandria; 703-797-2739) seems like more of a crowd pleaser than, say, haggis or bagpipes.
Designer Trina Turk wins over fashionistas with her Palm Beach-mod prints and vacation-minded shapes (tunics, floaty dresses). She applies a similar aesthetic to her new spring pillows ($135-$140, Urban Country, 7117 Arlington Road, Bethesda; 301-654-0500), which come in punchy brights and graphic styles that’ll turn your neutral sofa into a runway of sorts.
In your dream home, you own gardens that rival those at Versailles. In reality, you’ve got a 3 by 5 foot balcony in Franconia.
