Del Sol Details
This little shop is packed with fashionable sunglasses, apparel, and even nail polish. You will quickly find yourself decked out head to toe in Del Sol gear. Located right downtown on Toledo Avenue, Del Sol is open May – October, from 9am – 9pm everyday.
Their innovative color changing technology is amazing, and so is how fashionable every item in the store looks. The shirts, including tees, tanks, and coverups, include tropical graphics in bright colors that then change when you hit the beach.
Del Sol Product Offerings
Ladies, select one of their sweet white dresses with a beautiful hibiscus detail on the hem. Watch as the colors change from light pink to vibrant yellow as you enjoy a picnic in the park. Dudes, marvel as your cool graphic tee transforms from white to a tropical sunset while you play beach volleyball.
The nail polish is also really fun. Coat your nails with a glittery silver and watch it transform to brilliant purple. Try a tropical blue which magically changes to a rich green. They carry a whole range of colors. Coat each nail with a different color and really go crazy!
The sunglasses are one of the most popular items. The frames are all decidedly contemporary and fresh. Pick your favorite color and frame combination and head outside. The chunky frames change from clear to pink, silver to blue, the combinations are endless! The aviator frames are really eye-catching, with the metallics transforming from silver to gold, gold to rose gold, silver to gold, the list goes on!
Other items include bags, headbands, and even jewelry! The hair clips are really pretty. In the shape of a flower, they change from fresh white to a variety of tropical colors. Bring one of their oversized beach towels to the shores of Lake Erie and watch as it turns from white to pink.

Relax on one of their chaise lounges, with a towel from Del Sol of course.
