Walnut Creek is getting a big dose of preppy when Vineyard Vines opens at 1500 Mount Diablo Boulevard. Don't start mapping your drive across the Bay Bridge (and through the Caldecott Tunnel) quite yet: The prospective opening date isn't until next spring—at the earliest. The retail development that will play host to the store is still in the early construction phase. Until then, you'll have to shop the whale prints and pastels online or north, across a different bridge, at the store in Tiburon.
