At Anthropologie, I found the Blue Mum beach towel which had a very bright Pop Art print of graphic flowers and vines. The pattern was fun and colorful but reminded me of sixties window curtains. It managed to look dowdy and tacky—far from the chic LV florals I liked so much. I did score a great embroidered cover-up, but the beach-towel department was not a hit. 375 W. Broadway, nr. Broome St.; 212-343-7070.
