Team Jilly’s Local Faves

My heart is breaking for everyone that has been affected by COIVD-19! As an empath, I’m always trying to rack my brain on how my team and I can help all of those whose lives have been hindered because of the outbreak.

So, today, Team Jilly and I thought it would be fun to round up some of our favourite local spots to try to help support them during this time!

Whether you are wanting to visit the Okanagan once we can get our lives back in order or if you are wanting to support Canadian locally run shops online here are some of our favourite places from in and around the Okanagan!

Places to Shop

Okanagan Lifestyle

A one-stop-shop for timeless and comfortable wear! The true Okanagan fashion, where comfort meets style.

Chicken Little

An online shop filled with the best products for new moms and little ones! 


A CDN apparel company with cozy and stylish loungewear perfect for working from home in!

The Room Collection

An amazing little shop filled with so many inspiring decor pieces! 


They have a wonderful blend of fashion-forward meets free-spirited clothing selection and they just launched their online shop!!


A small shop curated with a variety of lifestyle, home decor, jewelry and so much more!

Man Woman

This is a hidden gem in the mall. They offer a great variety of trendy clothing for both men and women.

Jardine’s Domaine

They carry the most trend-worthy items from the biggest name brands and are located downtown Kamloops BC! P.s. many of their items are currently on sale!


It’s safe to say that we are ALL obsessed with Fossellos! They have such unique pieces, it’s so easy to create a capsule wardrobe with all of their pieces!

Franky Rose Jewelry

All of their pieces are handmade and you can usually find them at all of the markets but since those will be closed for the foreseeable future you can purchase online!

Big Sun

A local family run beach shop in Vernon that has been in business for 20 years! While they are not open to the public at the moment they have just launched their online store!

Birch Hill Studio

Another local Vernon fave!! Birch Hill Studios carry a wide array of brand name clothing and they even have a line of their own called Haus of Birch!

Pomme Salon

Team Jilly’s favourite spot for all of our hair care needs! Nicole is a rockstar in the hair care department. While the salon is closed for the moment you can find some great tutorials on their Instagram account and the most amazing products online.


Frankie We Salute You:

A vegetarian restaurant that uses all local ingredients for their dishes. They are still open for take out and are offering a limited menu including their bestselling dishes!

Quails Gate

Most of you know that this is an all-time favourite of Team Jilly. They are still offering the same delicious menu options for take-out only!

Naked Cafe

Another Team Jilly’s fave is Naked Cafe. They have so many great vegan options … bring on the comfort food!


Is a NEW Turkish restaurant in Penticton but the decor and cocktails are so trendy and the food is delicious and unique. You might even forget you’re in the Okanagan

Skinny Dukes

This is a new RETRO restaurant in Kelowna. As soon as you walk in you’ll feel like you’ve walked into that 70’s show … and their pizza is amazing!

Mamma Rosa’s

This place has the best homemade pasta and Italian food! It is unbelievably cozy and has the best three-cheese cannelloni. 

Krafty Kitchen

They are offering curbside pick-up or delivery! Their menu is truly “krafty” and creative, they have something for everyone. They are even making DIY cocktail kits to-go during quarantine!

Momo Sushi

If you’re wanting sushi this one is a fave! They have lots of yummy veggie-friendly options.


A place in Vernon that is an amazing little spot for breakfast and lunch. We’re talking delicious waffles and endless Egg Benny’s – they have it all! 

Arcadian Kitchen

They have an endless amount of Vegan and Vegetarian options and the food is just SO fresh and delicious! Plus, they have Taco Friday … need we say more?!

Coffee & Snacks


Team Jilly’s fave spots to meet up for quick meetings and grab a delish cup of coffee. They also make fresh bread daily and normally have beautiful flowers for sale from Melinda at A New Leaf!


They have the most amazing doughnuts made fresh every Friday! Make sure you pre-order online ahead of time because they sell out fast!

Triumph Coffee

Great local spot to grab a coffee in Vernon! Their exquisite coffee and decor will keep you coming back for more.

Wayne & Freda

This is a new coffee shop in Penticton but it is worth the drive to get the winter toast and an oat mylk latte!

Mount Royal Bagel Factory

They make the best bagels in all of BC, they are worth the trip to Kelowna just for their bagels alone!

Drinks & Dinner

Sandhill Wines

You can’t forget wine while you’re in quarantine! Especially if it’s our favourite team go-to, Sandhill’s Rosé (which was JUST released by the way!). 


A one-stop-shop for beer tasting, amazing food, entertainment, and bowling. While they aren’t open at the moment they are offering to deliver beer right to your doorstep, your choice of cans or a keg, just enough to get through quarantine!


These guys have the BEST local pub food (I promise it’s not all just greasy grub) … they have vegan and plant friendly options as well as unreal caesars.

Perch Cafe and Lounge

This rooftop bar is a hot spot in the summertime, they have the best drinks and a perfect view of Okanagan Lake! 


This is a new brewery in Penticton and they offer a variety of fun games and rooftop patio … with really great food and beer to boot!

There you have it! Our quick round-up of all the hidden gems in and around the Okanagan! Let us know in the comments below if you have visited any of our favourite spots or better yet, use this graphic and share it with us on Instagram by tagging @jillian.harris and @jhthebrand!
