The Fabulous Fanny Hoover

Beautiful Things, Made by Petrune

Wow! Our handmade spring/summer collection is officially on the rack at Petrune. For our second collaboration with local seamstress Fanny Hoover, we stuck with what we love : playful patterns, flattering cuts and vintage fabrics.


Can you believe this dress is one size fits all? No paper bag fit here, these wrap dresses are form fitting and entirely adjustable.


New additions to this years collection include cocktail dresses for day or evening wear. Each dress is unique and one of a kind.

Roots Rose Radish for Petrune

Beautiful Things, Made by Petrune


We are so excited to introduce our new apothecary line with locally based Roots Rose Radish. Each product is made of 100% natural and organic ingredients.


Our lip balm comes in two enticing flavors, “bergamint” and luscious rose. It’s a steal at only $5!


The Carrot Rose face cream is non-greasy and light weight– the perfect replacement for chemical heavy moisturizers. Vitamin E and aloe vera make this batch extra nourishing. $30


The Calendula Geranium Body Butter is wildly soothing, with indulgent ingredients like shea butter, avocado oil, vitamin E and calendula oil. Geranium notes dominate the scent, which is strongly reminiscent of a Parisian macaroon fresh off the shelf at LaDurée. Yum! $25


Keep the men in your life groomed and gorgeous with our hand crafted beard oil. Sandalwood, rosemary oil and cedarwood work together to create smooth and strong facial hair. We think of this as a great alternative for anyone overwhelmed by cologne. $25

Spring Styling with Petrune


Sure its still freezing in Ithaca, but with the upcoming spring breaks for both Cornell and IC, we can’t help dreaming of warmer weather.

We’ve recently received new shipments of spring-ready dresses, like this stunner from Tulle. At only $40, it’s a total steal! Lauren paired this dress with 1960s red cat-eye sunglasses, a red woven purse from the 1970s and red pumps from the 1980s.


We’ve also been busy searching for one of our favorite vintage staples for spring: 1950s sundresses. This sherbet-striped number hits right above the knee, perfect for edging into spring and summer. It’s shown with AJ Morgan sunglasses, one of our new One Swell Gal printed totes, and a collection of vintage bakelite bangles.


For rainy days, we suggest one of our new Tulle raincoats ($85). Isn’t the lining beautiful? We love how it looks with a 1970s crochet knit top, BB Dakota leggings and 1970s Gucci flats.


For a more casual look that will still keep away the spring chill, we’ve paired a green 1970s sweater dress with a classic light washed Levi’s jean jacket.


We love the idea of longer skirts for spring, and this 1940s mid-calf, pleated beauty is the perfect example. Here its shown with an Alternative Apparel lightweight distressed blouse (on sale for $40!), a square 1950s tapestry clutch, and auburn leather 1980s pumps.
