We are jumping for joy at Pomme HQ with the arrival of "duck feet" shoes & boots. These are exceptionally well made Danish footwear for people who need sturdy, stompy, colourful, stylish every day foot gear and later in the year divinely simple sandals. We will try and keep as large a range as possible in store, but shout out if we don't have your size or colour and the team at The Country of Bourke will run a pair down to us.
BOY are we lucky to have Luna in our midst; a true blue, Melbourne, home grown business that celebrates the fine fine merino wool we produce here in Australia and spins it into the best knits you will ever have. Chunky crops with ribbed sleeves, double moss scarves, long boyfriend Mohair and dramatic two tone capes....there is no going back once you have worn this range of soft, fine, beautifully styled knitwear.
Completely out of the blue we have become extremely taken with designs from the sunny shores of Portugal. Firstly with Teresa Martins unbelievably gorgeous, colourful, intricate pieces of clothing and more recently with a selection of tribal, hand thrown pots and jugs by Anna Westerlund a Swedish potter who has made Portugal her home. We are happy in the knowledge that these two artists will bring continuous warmth to our shop even as winter beckons!
Anne Black is a wonderful exponent of restrained, cool Scandinavian design. Her ceramic works are sculptural, functional and covetable. They come in a range of soft greens, greys and blues and are never brought back as gifts that don't please!
Easter is generally the crossover time for wardrobes down south..it's time to pack away the cotton and crack out the fleeces, the lambswool, the cashmere and anything that can be taken off and wrapped around in double quick time four to six times a day....we are happy to oblige with this daily adventure of weather variables at Pomme; come and check out Luna knits in all Australian wools; the ™ cotton blend that feels like light weight wool and the deluxe White & Warren & Charli cashmere. Add to that Nancybird suede shoes or funky leather boots and you are en route to a seamless wardrobe for a/w '17......you're welcome!
We might be enjoying a flush of late summer heat, but there is no holding back the tide of Autumn goodies that arrives throughout March and April. We have a bounty of Nancybird bags, boots and pouches to suit nearly every eventuality. We have French knits; deluxe cashmere wraps and Sophie Digard scarves to swoon over. So come get yourself kitted out for the cooler, autumnal daze we are about to enjoy!
Three of Mornington's most original designers have combined to create the current window installation at Pomme until mid march. Illustrations by Emma Morgan and Objects & jewels by Sarah Dingwall and Kate Macindoe will keep your attention glued to the two front windows at Pomme until autumn is with us.
The glass and silver jewellery & objects draw much inspiration from the coastal stretch between Mornington and the Prom. Speckled feathers, urchin shells, collections of sand and a myriad of sea blues to keep you happy on land when where you want to be is on the beach!

Call us nuts but Pomme is on the move again...just a few short metres down the road towards the sea to No 27 Main Street, Mornington. We love our current shop but have noticed that it can be a bit of a squeeze, so its time for some more floor space and when this lovely older style double fronted shop came up we could not resist!
The move is scheduled for the last few days in September so we can be up and running by the 1 October - we look forward to spreading our wings; spreading our jewels &clothes & objects of desire all around the lovely interior of 27 - be sure to spread the word and come and visit us soon.
A bientôt the Pomme crew.....sue lisa sophie & liv
Sometimes those random ideas deliver the best surprises and Guy's installation is no exception. His journey to the Peninsula many years ago is embodied in the eclectic mix of made, found and much loved objects installed at Pomme until the end of September. Individual paintings and collages can be found throughout the store.

Daniella presents a window of "ONE's" individual jewels to be worn in the sea and on the beach, to adorn fingers and wrists and to have necklaces with tiny aqua beads and clear blue glass stones. They are rarely replicated, are mostly in stunning matt silver and are highly addictive...you have been warned!
Holly Rigg's unique beaded creations have been at Pomme since the day we opened some 10+ years ago and there is a reason....she continues to make the most gorgeous neckwear with absolutely no chance of ever seeing the same one twice. We loved them back in 2005 and are still so happy to get them in very small quantities a couple of times a year including right now!
