Beau & Ro Now Open on Nantucket

NANTUCKET, MASSACHUSETTS (May 2023) – Charleston’s favorite boutique, Beau & Ro, is now open at 4 Federal Street in downtown Nantucket. A jewel box destination for upbeat and effortless dressing, Beau & Ro features apparel, bags, accessories, and gifts. The boutique will showcase Beau & Ro’s apparel, an exclusive collection of unique designs created in the retailer’s own fair-trade factory, Olive Workshop. Olive Workshop, founded by owners, Sara Rossi and her fiancé, a Delhi native, was launched to increase transparency in the production process and offers a supportive and inspiring environment for stitchers in India.

Alongside Beau & Ro’s collection, Sara has curated a mix of her favorite brands from around the world including Coco Shop, Daydress, Eddy, Ephemera, Odile, Sue Sartor, HART, Lorna Murray, Lack of Color, Le Specs, and many more. Sara designed the shop to be colorful and calming with playful prints and patterns, just like the merchandise.

Sara Rossi elaborates on the opening, “My family started vacationing on Nantucket over 30 years ago and after launching Beau & Ro, the island contributed to much of the early success of the brand. From my first trunk show ever at Eye of the Needle, to CRU waitresses wearing our signature belt bags, to opening the Skinny Dip in 2016, I’ve seen the island evolve, but one constant is the supportiveness of this community. Our Charleston store has been so well received on King Street and I am excited to bring a little bit of that Beau & Ro magic to this special island!”
