Friday Five: Labour Day Weekend Edition

Summer vacation might be coming to an end, but there are plenty of ways you can recapture that summer feeling at these Downtown Oakville businesses:

Island View – A Lilly Pulitzer Signature Store – 181 Lakeshore Rd E
If fall’s arrival has you feeling blue, take a trip to Island View, where even their fall collection is full of summery prints and colours.

Colossus Greek Taverna – 221 Lakeshore Rd E
With its white and blue décor, pink floral accents and authentic Greek cuisine, a trip to Colossus will transport you straight to the cliffs of Santorini. We sampled the chicken souvlaki lunch special ($14) and gyro pita combo ($9) – both great options for an inexpensive lunch during the workday!

Topmen Barbers – 295 Lakeshore Rd E
At Topmen Barbers, you can enjoy the traditional barbershop experience with a twist, thanks to the colourful birds who greet you on the way in. Book your next hot towel shave or luxury haircut by calling 905-844-4443 (walk-ins also welcome).

The Ten Spot – 302 Lakeshore Rd E
Add a pop of colour to your nails at The Ten Spot’s Lakeshore location. For the month of September, they’re offering a free polish job with any service you book (based on availability). To book, call 289-837-2449.

In2Art Gallery – 350 Lakeshore Rd E
Located just south of Lakeshore on Allan Street, this gallery displays a range of contemporary pieces from painting and photography to etching and multimedia. From October 9-19, they’ll be exhibiting works from Wasaga Beach artist Ryan Allen Sobkovich. Join them for the opening reception October 9th from 6 to 8 p.m.For more Downtown Oakville businesses you can discover this weekend, click here to view our full member directory.
