Betty Barclay

This trendy shop caters to women. Specifically, high-end fashion for women. Most of the items here are imported from Germany. They also sell accessories. It’s a very small (intimate) shop, but you should be able to find what you need if you’re looking for high-end fashion items.

Adrénaline

This shop is made for snowboard enthusiasts. It’s considered the number one place for trend-setting snowboarding gear. There is a wide selection of brands here, from Capita, Union, Libtech, Quiksilver, 32, Ride, Vans, Holden, Volcom, Electric, Hershel, and GoPro.

Atomic Tremblant

This store has a large selection of winter garments and gear. Most people who shop here do so because the prices are great and most everything is marked down. It’s a large store – larger than many others in the area, and seems to cater to families and hardcore enthusiasts. This is a store that you go into to buy a bunch of gear, and then spend all day using it.

When you’re done, you’ll be so tired that you’ll want to book one of the popular Mont Tremblant chalet rentals in the area.

Bagnoles et Bobinette

This store caters to families with young children. It’s a quaint little shop with lots of toys and games for young kids. You can shop online or in store. They do have specials in-store that aren’t typically available on the web, so be sure to stop in. But, anything you buy in here can be shipped to you, so you won’t have to worry about getting it home.

Beaver Tails

If you’re a foodie, you’ll love it here. The Beaver Tails bakery serves up fresh whole wheat pastries that are topped with pretty much whatever you want. Unlike many places you’ll shop, Beaver Tails makes hand-stretched pastries which are float-cooked and served hot.

Candy Shop

For the kids. You can walk in here and pick and mix any combination of gummies, liquorice, sour and chocolate-coated candies. There are funcancy toys, lollipops, gums, chocolates, truffles, fudge, nougat, caramel, fresh cotton candy, and homemade macarons.

Chamonix

This new concept shop is full of high-end fashion, sporting labels like Bogner, Fire & Ice, Dale of Norway, and KASK.

Shopping here can get pretty expensive, but if you have to have the latest and greatest, then at least stop in to browse.

Other Shops

Of course, you can wander around the area and find yourself out of the typical downtown area. Tremblant is a charming little village full of little shops and small businesses. A few stores, like Elle Tremblant, Access Mod’elle inc., Boutique Manege, Boutique Lingerie Roméo et Juliette, Cycle & Sport Mont-Tremblant, and Le Walkin have become locally famous for their customer service and unique offerings.

Kate goes hat crazy!

If you loved the fabulous black hat that Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, wore to the recent Trooping the colour celebrations, then next weeks tour of Canada is going to be a headwear treat for you.

Kate has apparently ordered 5 hats from famous milliners Lock & Co. These are from the Sylvia Fletcher Hat-a-Porter range, the same range that rather fabulous black hat came from.

The trooping the colour hat was called ´Lion Tamer´ and was also designed by Sylvia Fletcher. Her Hat-a-Porter range costs slightly less than the Lock & Co Couture range – showing signs that Kate is yet again being careful not to appear a spendthrift.

Lock&Co already have the royal seal of approval, making hats for Prince Charles amongst others.

A lovely new photograph has been released ahead of the Royal Tour of Canada and the United States. And is Kate wearing a new suit in it? Don’t be silly! Kate is getting a second wear out of the Amanda Wakeley navy suit she wore on her pre wedding tour of the UK. I think the message is plain and clear – you’ll see Kate’s outfits over and over again, they will have to earn their keep in that Royal wardrobe.

In other Kate fashion news, it seems the only time we will get to see Kate in another glamorous evening gown during the upcoming tour will be at the Bafta event during the American leg. A bit disappointing as the Jenny Packham dress was a real showstopper that wetted the appetite for more evening glamour!
