Kirsten Butterfield and Debbie Dager
Wildwood’s Bella Vestiti golf and tennis clothing store is just a short drive away from Potomac. But now, it is no further than one’s fingertips. Potomac’s Deb Dager of Deb D Web Creations has designed www.bv-golf-tennis.com which makes shopping easy and gives sports enthusiasts the opportunity to view and purchase golf and tennis apparel and gifts.
Bella Vestiti owner Kiersten Butterfield opened the store in 2004 to provide stylish tennis and golf wear to her customers. Butterfield has always had a career in sales and marketing, but because she was a tennis player and golfer, she spotted a need to bring fashion into sport. “I seek out styles that are both functional and fashionable. I buy clothes made with the new technical fabrics. They contain SPF, lycra, and spandex. They are cool, comfortable, easy to move in — and very packable for travel,” she said. “Our sports clothes translate into everyday life. They easily go from the court or course to a luncheon, on a plane — to a meeting or anywhere.”
Dager and Butterfield discovered one another when they were introduced by close friends. “I was looking for someone to build and maintain my website,” said Butterfield. “I met Debbie and realized that she is an expert in web design and could facilitate all of it. Since she plays tennis and a little golf, she could also advise me on what athletic women are looking for. The website is perfect but since it is ever-changing, I needed someone who could stay on top of the changes and maintain it. We offer over 1,000 items on our website; thus, it always needs to be kept up-to-date.”
In addition to golf and tennis clothes, both the store and the website feature Brighton belts, colorful floppy sun hats, stylish socks, visors and golf umbrellas. They stock Jamie Sadock, Donna Karen, Ralph Lauren, Bolle, GG Blue, Fila, Tail, Nike and many other clothing lines. Golf shoes by Walter Genuin, Sandbaggers, Sesto Meucci and Aerogreen make a fashion statement both on and off the course.
Shipping is free for items ordered on-line but they can be returned to the store for full refund. The store is located at 10259 Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda’s Wildwood Shopping Center and the phone number is 301-897-2777.
