Luxetips Automobiles! Lincoln MKC Boutique Tour Comes to Atlanta
Dream the biggest dream you can think of and then go for it!
The Lincoln Motor Company engaged media and influencers for a day of fashion and luxury on the Lincoln MKC Boutique Tour. This tour featured driving in the luxury MKC around Atlanta, amazing fashion, and wonderful eats. More importantly, we learned how fashion influenced the interior design of the Lincoln MKC. Fab!
Our day started with lunch at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Atlanta. Delish.
Our first stop was Emly Benham boutique in Vinings, a ritzy suburb of Atlanta. This boutique is small, quaint and luxurious. The store’s origins are in Jacksonville, Fl, but now they have a location in Atlanta. This store is so fab. I snagged a pair of lovely earrings courtesy of Emily Benham and Lincoln. Swoon!
We then ventured to one of my favorite boutiques, Bill Hallman, located in Virginia Highlands.

All fashionistas know that Bill Hallman is an Atlanta staple. Love! Bill Hallman creates his own designs and also buys some fashions out of L.A. His designs are unique made of great material and are of good quality. We learned that Bill Hallman is a family business and everyone is involved. Nice.

This connection can be seen with the vehicle’s available Bridge of Weir® Deepsoft leather and the tailored stitching that gives fit and comfort to the inner door panels and seat coverings.
We ended our night at the famous Kevin Rathbun restaurant in Inman Park. Kevin Rathbun has been on Iron Chef, but more importantly, he has one of the absolute restaurants in Atlanta. Orgasmic!

Priced from just $33,995 – the lowest entry price in the segment – the Lincoln MKC offers customers the ultimate no-compromise small premium utility vehicle. With a powerful, fuel-efficient all-EcoBoost® engine lineup, complemented by an array of premium amenities and technologies that prioritize comfort and convenience, MKC targets a growing audience of luxury consumers who want a vehicle that meets their unique needs.
I drove the Lincoln MKC on the boutique crawl and the engine definitely has some pick up and go. The ride was smooth but powerful. Also the ride was super quiet. I barely heard any outside noise. That is priceless in Atlanta. Lincoln’s The SYNC® with MyLincoln Touch™ driver connectivity system, which includes navigation, allowed me to seamlessly get to one destination to the next with no issues. This system also enables control of phone, entertainment, and climate by means of voice-activated commands or simple touch controls on an 8-inch screen.
Of course the vehicle is luxurious. The exclusive Bridge of Weir® Deepsoft leather-trimmed seats were like “butta.” Deepsoft leather is a non-embossed, chromium-free leather that undergoes a 16-hour softening process to give it a supple, natural feel.
