By  0 Comments

The saying goes that you’re not the only pebble on the beach. But that’s not the case when you walk through the doors of Barefoot Beach Bums. Owners Lynn and Mark Gould and their amazing staff will treat you like “ohana,” the Hawaiian word for family. Their KC-metro store helps customers find their inner beach by transporting them to an island way of life just by visiting this store.

Warm Days Ahead
Barefoot Beach Bums, located in Town Center Plaza, Leawood, Kansas, is packed to the gills with new inventory of beachwear, jewelry, decor and much more. You’ll find something for everyone in your family. A special offering is the fantastic selection of swimwear consisting of bikinis styled for either a hot tropical vacation or a relaxing day at the lake. You can choose from sets or separates to customize your fit with a Barefoot Beach Bums style that sets you apart from all the other sunbathers.

“We’ve revamped our swim lines for 2018. The missy line has expanded with sizes up to a 24 in a one-piece and tankini, with a higher neck and larger cups. You’ll also see more skirts in swimwear and more racerback styles in swimwear tops,” revealed Lynn. “We’ve also targeted some styles for teenage girls who are looking for more modest swimsuits.”

Barefoot Beach Bums is always on island time, incorporating the global love of an island carefree barefoot beach bum routine. It’s a tropical lifestyle company built on the coastal island way of life, community and charity. Barefoot Beach Bums strives to encompass every aspect of tropical living from music, apparel, sports, gear or travel.

Get Trip Ready
“We want to be one-stop shopping. We want families to book their trip and start it by shopping at Barefoot Beach Bums,” noted Lynn. “At Barefoot Beach Bums, we want you to get what you want: great quality at a great price. In fact, we offer a 30-day return policy. You work hard for your money, and you deserve the great quality at Barefoot Beach Bums.”

The Town Center location, next to Macy’s, is complemented by an incredible online website. For a limited time, ground shipping is just $6 for all items. With both options, shoppers delight in the opportunity to bring home the seaside by purchasing beach house décor, handbags and totes, jewelry, beach and sun gear, apparel and the trademark Barefoot Beach Bums T-shirts and Twisted Tropics T-shirts.

“We’re not just swimwear,” reminded Lynn. “We have dresses that can take you from the lake to a great concert or any fun event on a summer night. We’ve also introduced a new long-sleeve tee in coral, surf and indigo that crosses over ladies’ and men’s sizes. This is an exciting opportunity for us to continue to build our brand.”

Be the Only Pebble
Part of that excitement includes offering special shopping adventures to groups wanting to experience the island way of life. Whether it’s a wedding party shopping for the bridal trousseau, which includes a honeymoon to a tropical location; a destination wedding to a warm weather setting; or even a bridal shower to that special island hideaway, an after-hours shopping party can be arranged for you. With the store to only you and your friends, with an array of refreshments, this opportunity is perfect. Just call Lynn and Mark for all of the details and how to make your dream shopping experience come true.

Even though this company is home-grown and based in Kansas, Lynn and Mark have the island life down to a science and enjoy offering their wares to others on a year-round basis. Featuring resort wear for shoppers goes on every day at Barefoot Beach Bums. It’s not a seasonal occurrence because customers are heading south on a year-round basis. Mark and Lynn understand that if you’re going to the Caribbean, you want to shop now for what you’ll wear on the beach. You can do that at Barefoot Beach Bums.

“Ninety percent of our business comes from people going on vacation or taking a spring break adventure to the south,” shared Mark. “Barefoot Beach Bums is here to provide the beach attire and home decor to allow people to express their love of the beach or lake. It’s apparel for vacations and home decor to remember where they’ve been and what they’ve done while they’re away from home.”
