Autumn fashions at Pinetrees

Posted by Dani Rourke – Saturday, March 09, 2013

Occasionally our guests arrive without their luggage. Sometimes the bags have been sent to Melbourne by mistake, but, more often, it’s because the weather is tricky and Qantas is obliged to carry extra fuel. At Lord Howe airport, Qantas issues a survival kit (a toothbrush, a razor and an XL Qantas t-shirt in ever-stylish grey marle) and $100 to spend at Larrups, Lord Howe’s answer to Rip Curl and Billabong.

Shopping at Larrups is an absolute pleasure. You can read more about Larrups here.

Very occasionally, we have clever, adventurous and very attractive guests who spend their $100 buying new swimmers rather than sensible underpants, socks and pyjamas. Guess what they wear to dinner until the bags arrive?
