Newburyport eco-chic boutique The Studio—Best of Boston winner for shopping on the North Shore—has introduced an exclusive hoodie coat from Prairie Underground. Available in store and online (and in long and short versions), the Plum Island coat is a greyish, bluish green, “like the ocean water on Plum Island in the fall,” according to the store—not to mention a nice reminder of warmer days.

100% organic cotton, and pleasantly feminine. Buy it online, and get recession-friendly free shipping.

For pessimists, the cute coat is also sold in black. The shorter version is $190; the longer sells for $234.
