The quirky and rebellious nature of the owners gives the bookshop a very distinct style, with much culture packed into a small space.

Lorne Girl

The Lorne Girl stores represent designers include All About Eve, Just Add Sugar, Bonds and the fabulous Living Doll. Check out the Lorne Bay menswear stores in Lorne, Noosa, and Queenscliff. Selected labels are also in the Mornington Classics store.

Here's a peak at what we're doing in Beach Club for winter 2015 - if you see anything you 'must have' (hopefully there are a few items that are 'just you') - you can now buy on line or pop in to see the friendly staff at your nearest store. You can also call.
