Following a successful first year in business, the East Village’s popular Pink Olive Boutique is set to open a second location in Park Slope, Brooklyn on March 1Pink Olive Boutique’s owner Grace Kang chose the Park Slope location for its family-friendly and artistic vibe.  While still retaining its roots in baby, gifts, and getaway goods, the Park Slope Pink Olive will also spotlight the arts, indie designers, vintage finds, and home décor.  Original artwork will regularly be exhibited, with the first being the whimsical work of Los Angeles-based painter Marisa Haedike of Creative Thursday.

The new Park Slope space captures the essence of Pink Olive, with exposed brick, wooden floors, and original high ceilings.  Inside the 600 square foot space, Pink Olive will carry an array of new designers, including Cocoon Couture from Australia, Pink Chicken, Dwell Studio, Kamibashi, Me! Bath, Nantaka Joy, and Blissen by Jill Bliss. For baby, Pink Olive carries brands BlaBla, Catfish, Jelly Cat, Trumpette, Amy Tangerine, Giddy Giddy, Zid Zid, and more.  For gifts, selections from Erica Weiner, Beth Mueller, Leather Zoo, Knock Knock, Jenny Sweeney Designs, Snow & Graham, and My Favorite Mirror. For home & spa, Pink Olive features Matta, Lollia, Geodesis, Gianna Rose Atelier, and Soapylove.  Pink Olive is also collaborating with Soapylove to be their US flagship store, carrying their entire line of Soapsicles in both boutiques as well as online.  Another draw is vintage jewelry and accessories handpicked by Grace that will create a homey feel for the new store.

“My vision behind Pink Olive has always been to have little pink olives in different locations where local residents as well as visitors can find something unique for themselves and for gift-giving,” said Grace, previously a buyer for Barney’s New York and Bloomingdale’s. “The concept will continue to promote unique gifts for happiness and home.”  

  

Originating as a web boutique, www.pinkoliveboutique.com, in 2006, Pink Olive’s East Village brick and mortar store soon followed in May 2007. Less than a year later, Grace set her sights on expanding to Park Slope.  Pink Olive’s new neighborhood has several established Manhattan restaurants and cafes opening, including Blue Ribbon Sushi, AOC Bistro, and The Chocolate Room.  Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and Museum are also nearby, perfect for a weekend of shopping and sightseeing.

The name Pink Olive is inspired by Grace’s fashionable niece, Katie, who loves pink while Grace loves olives. Hence, Pink Olive Boutique!

Shoppers will receive a free gift with purchase opening weekend, March 1-3.

The new Pink Olive Boutique will be located at 167 Fifth Ave, Park Slope, NY 11217.
