Petrune Summer Sale!


It’s another rainy day in Ithaca, but the looming gray can’t dampen the bright pink/orange color of this Diane Von Furstenberg dress! Our lovely associate Miranda sports this sexy 80’s secretary number with Valentino sunglasses and white leather pumps for a truly exuberant look. The dress is one of the featured items in our current summer sale, in which customers can enjoy 50% off men’s and women’s shirts, jackets, dresses, and skirts.

Here, Miranda wears another item from our summer sale – an elegant yet easy 80’s dress (complete with shoulder pads), and pairs it with dark brown crocodile pumps. Who said you can’t wear white after Labor Day – especially when you look this good!



Wow ladies from the forties and fifties could sew! These two handmade dresses are so beautiful I had to put them on and feel fabulous for a couple of minutes. This gorgeous red dress was handmade in the forties by a lovely lounge singer! It has beautiful sequin and faux pearl detailing, and is shown here with a vintage fur and our great new Seychelles cut-out heels in teal suede.

This handmade stunning yellow chiffon dress with sequin details looks as good lying down on a setee as it does swingin’ around the dance floor. It is shown here with a blue silk scarf and white 80’s heels.

Petrune at the Prom


We got a sweet email from a customer, and we wanted to share it with all of you! We love it when fabulous young things rock vintage looks at their proms!

Dear Petrune,

For prom this year, I wanted to stand out, but I was having trouble figuring
out what to wear. I had a dress, but it wasn’t that unique (although it fit
great) and I had cool shoes, but that’s not where I wanted people looking
the most! When I came into your store, I asked the associate if she could
help me, and she helped me to find the perfect hat and veil for it, which
completely pulled together my outfit. I got so many compliments on my hat,
it really made my night a special one.

Thanks for the helpfulness and fabulous look,

Cady Fontana

Lookin’ good Cady!

Week 2: The Commons


This week we put our best foot forward with a stunning fall-inspired Pucci skirt in tones of brown and pink.

The Commons is treating us well as we start to settle into our new home; the paint is drying, we’re getting to know our neighbors, and Petrune is meeting new people every day who just can’t say enough about her. Oh the ego!

In other exciting news, this week we premiered one of our new clothing lines from Tulle: wool coats, knit tops and sweater dresses in a variety of sizes and colors compliment our expanded vintage collection. You must see for yourself…
