Beachcombers Coastal Life Launches Threads and Kids Lines

Beachcombers Coastal Life (BCL) has announced the launch of its Threads and Kids lines. Each line features a variety of tops, bottoms, accessories, and dresses for women, men, girls and boys. All the clothing and accessories were designed in-house with a focus on creating a line that is fashionable and comfortable to wear whether on vacation or in your everyday life.

“We really poured our hearts and souls into this launch! We thought of every detail to make our customers buying decision a breeze. All of our apparel is soft and breathable and we are providing trend-right fashion that is chic and comfortable, with exceptional quality. We believe you can feel great and turn heads at the same time,” said Jessica Stachurski, vice president of product development at BCL.

The new Threads and Kids lines are machine wash and dry, travel-friendly, and color coordinating. The lines also feature “Mini Me Styling” which means that certain pieces from the Kids line will match certain pieces in the Threads line so parent and child can coordinate.

This is the first entrée for the 71-year old coastal company in the apparel and accessories category. While souvenir and novelty have been the mainstay of the business and will continue to always play an important part, the expansion of apparel and accessories further validates BCL as a leader in the coastal category.

The new Threads, Accessories and Kids line consists of sizing from small to extra-large and is ready to ship.
