A Day at Lyndhurst With UGG Australia

Autumn with children holds the promise of farm trips, pumpkin carving and ample time for outdoor explorations. Watching the simple pleasures of childhood is what I love most. We have been enjoying our full weekend fall days and the cooler temperatures. I imagine that I’ll still be discovering acorn collections and removing leaf art from the corners of our home for many weeks to come.

Last weekend we ventured out to Lyndhurst, an architecturally stunning Gothic Revival mansion overlooking the Hudson River. We were invited to attend the special “Scarecrow Invasion” event from the kind team at UGG Australia and began our day at their store located in the Westchester Mall. We’ve previous declared our UGG Australia love – and this year they celebrated 35 years of pairing sheepskin heaven with stand-out style. We carefully looked through their chic, sophisticated selections of distressed leather and unique embellishments with exquisite feel. We decided on boots for the whole family – the ultimate form of luxurious comfort to carry us through the colder months.

Naturally, Lucia was thrilled when asked to test out UGG Australia’s new in-store custom Swarovski Crystal Customization. Sunny and Gillian from UGG Australia hooked LP up with a unique design, and the in-store application drew quite the crowd of window watchers. Someone clearly loved her combination of pink, bows and unique sparkle.

Outfitted for crisp weather in our coveted UGG Australia staples we drove a short distance to Lyndhurst to spend a full day at the expansive estate. We loved checking out the plethora of full-size scarecrows, designed and decorated by local students.

Lucia and Adrian even had the chance to create their own scarecrows with the help of the UGG Australia team. We searched through clothing (which will be donated to charity) and a bin of beautifully Mod Podged masks created by local middle-schoolers. Lucia had a knack for discovering the most elaborately adorned clothes and Adrian was thrilled with his “man”. As we were about to move on to the next activity, Adrian spotted a lone pint-sized scarecrow stand. With the help of his sister, he proudly assembled the littlest scarecrow on the Lyndhurst lawn.

We had plenty of time to explore the grounds and take in the stunning landscape surrounding the Lyndhurst mansion. We even enjoyed hot chocolate with the UGG Australia team while viewing their new home collection. I especially love the sheepskin area rug, an accessory often found in designer nurseries.

There is nothing quite like watching the sheer joy in my children as they explore on their own terms. With plenty of open space to run, tumble and rest – we enjoyed a full family day together.
