Anguilla is known internationally for its five-star dining, pristine beaches and luxury villas and hotels. It is also widely known for what it does not have... Cruise ships, crowds and shopping.
That includes everything from charming boutiques to the gold and electronic shops you will find on most Caribbean islands. I will skip the gold and electronic shops every time, but I will take the charming boutique, please!
To many people's dismay, they are few and far between in Anguilla. Petals Boutique on Meads Bay at Frangipani Beach Hotel has changed that...
Welcome to Petals Boutique
Whether you are a local or a visitor looking for comfortable yet chic Anguilla-wear or travel-friendly souvenirs for back home, you can find it all at Petals Boutique. Jackie Pascher, our good friend and Anguilla real estate agent, even did all of her Christmas shopping at Petals!
We walked into Petals Boutique and felt inspired to one day start our own boutique and clothing line!
The Frangipani family has just done it so well. They have perfectly crafted the shop's concept, choosing everything from the colors, to the logo, to the merchandise itself.
Beachy Hats on Display
With white-wooden ceilings, and colored in pinks and draped in pink fabrics, Petals Boutique is pretty as a petal.
It captures the essence of what an Anguilla boutique should be, and blends it with Frangipani Beach Club's rosy and friendly face.
They have many nicely arranged displays show-casing their jewelry, purses, sun hats and other accessories.
The shop carries a variety of clothing and items for around the house, which make great souvenirs.
Petals is certainly a shop for women, and for men if you are shopping for the women in your life. :-)
Petals is also one of the only places in Anguilla where you can get a rash-guard to protect yourself from the sun and surf, if you are surfing in Anguilla.
Dressing for Anguilla's warm temperatures had long been a task I struggled with. Jeans and tank tops made with a mix of cotton and spandex are suffocating in the tropical temperatures.
Breezy linen dresses, skirts and pants are ideal for the weather in Anguilla.
Petals carries some of the leading warm-weather wear designers.
The shop also features one of a kind Anguilla t-shirts, swim-shorts, caps and stylish lycra Anguilla shirts.
There is a plethora of unique and vividly colored wraps, cover ups, tank tops, skirts, and even dresses by brands like Pitusa. You won't find these items anywhere else in Anguilla.
Even the kid's selection is adorable and unique!
One of our all-time favorite items at Petals is their watercolored Anguilla map pouch. Simple and cute, this pouch makes for a perfect souvenir and gift.

This print is available on greeting cards and tea towels.
Petals has also sourced locally-made products like CariBella's fragrant soaps...
And even super-hard-to-find items like the famous Sprocka's CDs...
