Look of the Month: May

Ah, the merry month of May! This month’s model, Alice, once she’d finished counting impossible things and having breakfast, stopped by the store to show off some post-winter whimsy.  Her floral dress (Liberty of London, size 24 months, $6.95) pairs perfectly with an Old Navy chartreuse cardigan (size 2, $5.95) and pink patterned legwarmers ($2.49.) She’s prepared for rain or shine with an iPlay umbrella (or parasol!) in green ($16.00) and Hatley rain boots previously purchased from the Goose.

If a spring shower does begin to sprinkle, Alice is ready with an H&M rain coat (size 18 months, $4.95) and mischievous smirk (model’s own.)

May your May be full of floral fashion and Alice-esque attitude. See you at the Goose!

Children sizes 11-13 & 1-3 priced at $38.

We also have NEW See Kai Run shoes for the warm weather season.These well-made sandals and sneakers come in bright colors to suit every style. Their flexible soles are great for new walkers, and durable styles are great for your bigger little kids.

Look of the Month: April

It seems like Spring may have finally sprung! Birdies are chirping, plants are peeping out of the ground, and the sun is making regular appearances. Warmer weather inspires utter glee in many of us at the Goose, and our April model captures the feeling perfectly:

This is Ananda. His giant grin goes perfectly with the most effusive sweatshirt we’ve ever seen (FrogPrince, size 6, $7.95) which is emblazoned with the words “WEATHER SUN BOY WATER TASTES HOLIDAY” on the front and the words “PRINCE Care U” on the hood. We don’t totally get it, but we definitely love it, especially paired with plaid-cuffed jeans by Blurred (size 6, $7.95) and aqua KDs (Nike, size 1, $8.95.)

Underneath it all, Ananda rocks a tee (size 6, Carter‘s, $2.95) that tells how we’re all hoping to spend this season — hangin’ with our peeps!

Come kick your Spring into gear with a stop at the Goose.


Look of the Month: March

So, what’s a fashionista to wear in March?! This month is supposed to be in like a lion and out like a lamb, but here in Ithaca, it’s more like lamb ..  then lion … then giant-roving-pack-of-lions-tigers-and-bears! Luckily, we have this month’s model, Leona, to show us how a little creativity can help keep your wardrobe weather-appropriate.

Leona’s outfit centers around her sparkly Cherokee top (size 7/8, $4.50)  paired with Ralph Lauren tweed leggings (size 6, $5.50) and size 2 ankle boots by Tuffrider ($9.95.) She gets extra warmth from her Uniqlo heatec tee ($4.25,) Gap cream coat (size 8, $11.50) and Italian wool hat ($2.00.)

Once the weather finally warms up, Leona just swaps out her layers for Gap kids sparkle dot shorts (size 7, $5.50), a leather belt (Peace sign buckle not visible, $1.50) and European leather sandals (size 13, $9.95.)


You too can survive this month as fashionably as Leona. Just stop by the Goose for more styles that transcend seasons!

We will close at 5pm on Wednesday March 15th
