Many newcomers to the Outer Banks who are browsing the local restaurants, shops and area attractions online or in the local guide books notice an interesting addition to the standard address. Besides the typical business name, street name, street number and town, many local businesses also include a Milepost number. This may initially appear to be an odd notation to include, but on the Outer Banks, this is incredibly helpful to new visitors on the lookout for a specific restaurant or shop.
Casual clothing for men, women and children doesn’t have to be sloppy-looking, as the Ralph Lauren Polo line proves. Everything in this store, not surprisingly, is affixed with the distinctive “Polo” logo, and it’s all top quality. There’s signature towels and wallets and flip-flops, as well as the famous polo shirt in all different colors. But there are also beautiful dresses for girls and women, sold at discount (by no means cheap!) prices. For men, there are racks of handsome jackets, both casual and dressy, and tailored pants and shirts. The children’s clothes are irresistibly charming. There is also a good selection of summer weight sweaters and jackets, as well as a clearance racks with out-of-season wear. And of course, jeans for everyone are available in multiple styles and sizes.
