Personal Shopper: Must-haves for spring

No, it’s not your imagination; I’m back. Actually, I never left.

Seems my play on words last month confused more than a few readers. Even loved ones asked why they weren’t informed of my resignation, as if I’d callously de-friended them.

Venturing a guess about my clarity mishap, I must’ve tweaked on the same communication pill as the Davis Joint Unified School District. Mea culpa!

Don’t worry, though; I discovered the antidote. Admitting fault and rehabilitation are strong first steps.

But enough about the district office …

To set the record straight, I did not give up this column. The only thing I walked out on was any hope of ever being able to do justice by Fleet Feet, the business featured in March.

On that note, let’s get back to shopping and this year’s must-haves for spring:

First on the list can be found in the posh new surroundings of Paulina’s, a fashionable women’s wear boutique at 207 F St., Suite A.

Swimsuits!

That’s right, Davis finally has a real option for beautiful, quality swimwear. Bikinis are sold as separates and come in sizes 0-22, cups A-G and bands 30-38. To accommodate the breadth of sizes, samples are onsite, along with plenty of ready-to-purchase options. Custom orders, including variation in cut and print, are completed in about two days.

For those who shudder at the thought of their glow-in-the-dark winter thighs, there’s no better way to step out in shorts than with the confidence of a tan, especially one that’s skin cancer-free.

The St. Tropez tan is available at Spa Central and is a rub-in, total body bronze made to last a week or more. The website says it’s endorsed by celebrities and exclusive spas. I’ll vouch for it as well. Stop by 213 F St. or call 530-758-7400 for your appointment.

If your garden is what makes you glow, check out Davis Ace for its new raised garden kits. For just $40.99, you can quickly assemble your own vegetable plot using this expandable, stackable system. Dimensions start at 4-by-4-by-7 feet and grow to the imagination. This clever invention can be found in the Garden Department on G Street.

Off with the Ugg boot toe lint, it’s high season for a pedicure. Paige at Spa Central is wonderful for individual service. For spontaneity or group treatments, Natural Nails and Spa, 235 F St., is pretty impressive. I’m especially fond of Lynn.

What goes best with tanned hands and beautiful nails?

A cocktail, of course.

This time of year, I prefer something light and refreshing. After a recent hunt (who needs Easter eggs?), Bistro 33′s Town Center Cucumber Collins was just right — Stoli with fresh cucumber, lemon and lime juice, and a splash of soda. Visit them at 226 F St.

If one round leads to many more, call a cab, hydrate while Davis water’s still affordable, and tuck into luxurious lightweight sleepwear by Crème de la Crème, 222 D St., Suite 6B. Soft and lovely, six different brands compliment any style.

My final mention is none other than Common Grounds.

This beloved coffee shop was recently put through hell by the landlord, suddenly losing its home to corporate whims. Even though they’ll soon operate in an adjacent space, this year-round must-have will need to wait for summer.

To Regency Centers I say this: Next time you toss a town treasure, think again, or find another community in which to operate. We can be very supportive, but a full pardon must be nurtured.

Since you effectively put our coffee on ice, you’re now the sole source of this spring’s most important must-have: lost compensation and an apology to Common Grounds.

More appearances by the dancing pickle also would be a nice touch.
