Cornerstone Garden’s New Clothing Lines

Cornerstone Garden’s New Clothing Lines for Various Body Types

New women’s clothing lines based on body shapes including; pear, apple, busty, hourglass, athletic and slim physiques have arrived at Cornerstone Garden 414-B State Street in Greensboro, NC, selected by Linda Eisenstein-body image consultant. Each piece is personally reviewed then provides suggestions as to which body types the items will best flatter.

Linda has always been fascinated by fashion and as a young child, envisioned how they would look on her. However, throughout her life, Linda has seen her body morph into several different shapes and feels as though her personal style of fashion has been an ever-changing look. National television shows including “What Not to Wear” and “Ambush Makeover” are addressing Ms. Eisenstein’s mission regarding women and choosing the correct clothing to accentuate their female body.

Combining her passion, experience and knowledge, Linda has thus created Clothes Befitting. Linda states, “For any woman to pull off an ensemble flawlessly, she must first accept her individual body shape and strive to wear clothes that flatter her natural shape.  Every woman can be beautiful, but she must first know and believe that she is beautiful!”

Visit Cornerstone Garden from November 12th through the 19th to receive 20% off all clothing lines with the first 20 customers receiving a free Neon Buddha Yoga Bag. Clothes Befitting clothing lines are available at Cornerstone Garden and Fashion Boutique located at 414-B State Street in Greensboro, open Tuesday through Saturday 10:30-4pm or online by selecting Cornerstone Garden page at View clothing online, click here

Sentiment Gardens Workshop-Cornerstone Garden

Treasured Memorabilia turns Memories into Gardens

Free Workshop Cornerstone Garden (414-B State Street)
September 3rd and September 10th at 10am
Beginning next door at The Secret Tea Room (412 State Street)
RSVP 392.4031

Strolling through the eclectic grounds of Cornerstone Garden in Greensboro,NC, several patrons openly expressed to store owner Diana Gardner-Williams that many keepsakes of loved ones past were difficult to part with.CornerstoneGardenis designed by using non-conventional items or pieces not necessarily found in the landscape, creating unique outdoor scenes or vignettes.

Stressful events such as loosing a loved one can lead to collecting because one often associates certain objects with the lost loved one.  Not letting go of “things” which may be viewed by others as unimportant, trivial, or even trash, is a physical way to “keep” the loved one who is no longer present. Popular television shows such as; Hoarding: Buried Alive and Hoarders have revealed the secret lives of those having difficulty in letting go of tangible objects after such events.

 All are welcome to a free workshop in Greensboro, Cornerstone Garden to discuss the art of incorporating keepsakes into homes and gardens with a designer’s eye. Workshop will begin at The Secret Tea Room (412 State Street) at 10 am Saturday September 3rd and Saturday September 10th, 2011. Please call Diana for reservations at 336.392.4031. Individual questions can be answered after the tour.

Diana Gardner-Williams, store owner of Cornerstone Garden, is a professional landscape designer working under the name Diana Digs Dirt for the past 13 years. She began helping the community create memory gardens after the stillbirth of her son in 2003. “My family keepsakes are designed into my daily environment providing great comfort because of the emotional connections,” says Mrs. Gardner-Williams.

If interested, there will be a plant swap September 3rd 8:30am at Cornerstone Garden
