"We sell more white sheets here than anywhere else in the United States," reveals Tonya Gibson, manager of fine-linens store Yves Delorme in Stony Point Fashion Park.
Oh, Richmond. Have we no imagination in the bedroom?
It's time to try something new. The spring line at Yves Delorme includes rich violet irises, turquoise-and-fuchsia blossoms with exotic birds and, best of all, frisky clover.
On the embroidered version, called "Luzerne," the clover's delicate leaves and purple flowers spring up everywhere. The printed "Chance" linens are spangled with the familiar three leaves in green, blue, pink or yellow. "Really sweet," Gibson says. "Perfect for children or beach houses."
