A Large. * Number of Interested Wo
men Will Call During the Next
Three Days Predominant Color
This Season Is Said to Be Brown.
Beginning with today the ladles of
Norfolk and of the new northwest
have an opportunity to view the
splendid 'Easier millinery openings
In this city. The three millinery
stores in Norfolk have never looked
prettier than they do this season and
it would seem that the most exact
ing tastes might be satisfied from
the gorgeous variety of effects on
The opening of the Millinery & Art
company , successors to Inskeep , be
gan this morning and ends tomorrow
night. Miss Bender and Durland Sis
ters will receive visitors In search of
Easter bonnets on tomorrow and Sat
urday. Each caller at the Millinery
& Art dpenlng receives a free souve
nir. The displays In all three stores
are exceedingly Inviting and no
doubt large crowds of Interested wo
men will pass in and out of the doors
from now on until late Saturday
The New" Styles.
There will bo many pretty and in
teresting novelties In huts this spring
and summer , but probably the most
distinct feature of the season will be
the gossamer hat. The thinnest and
most delicate fabrics will be used
for hats this spring and summer and
the colors will mostly be light
Among the materials which will bo
used principally for the foundations
of hats will bo crepe llsse , tulle and
moussellne. They will bo used in
different ways , but always so as to
preserve the semi-transparent effect.
All kinds of lace , fine straw braids ,
quillings and ribbons will bo used for
decorative purposes on the new style
hats. Flowers will bo used moro
than over for trimming. There is
only ono difference. Formerly the
style ran to largo and bulky flowers ,
while this year small flowers will bo
the style. They will bo used in the
form of garlands , clmplets or little
nosegays , connected by dainty festoons
teens of smaller flowers. Most of
these flowers will bo used without
foliage. - - - ' i- ,
'There-will be-a
shapes in hats this year , Including
variations of the styles worn last
year. Many of the models Imported
hero recently show irregular shapes ,
some of them decidedly original In '
their structure. Laces of all kinds ,
Including Brussels , Mechlin and oth
er pillow laces , will be great favor
ites. Straw braids , particularly the
light forms of plain Tuscan will bo
employed a. great deal for decorative
purposes. They will bo used In com- )
blnatfon with > ce , ribbons and flow
ers. 'Large bulging bows of rlbboria
will not be in style. Where large
bowsT'lire used they will bo stitched
down flat.
The question , which colors will be
most fashionable during the comlfig
season Is one which Is of great In
terest to all women who wish to be
In style and , naturally , It is more
burning at this time , just before the
opening of the spring season. Brown
promises to bo the most popular col
or ; next to It will probably be palo
violet. Lavender has been revived
and will have a strong run and var
ious shades of green , especially em
erald green are rapidly gaining in
