One of the places I think I can accomplish that is with the patio umbrella. I've been thinking of buying of a nice marketplace umbrella but haven't been able to come across any on my old faithful, Craig's List. K-Mart and Ikea, however, do offer nice versions that are pretty wallet friendly.
I love this umbrella from K-Mart and it's on sale for $42.49.
Ikea also offers a similar option for $49.99.
While browsing on Ikea's website, I came across these awesome stripped umbrellas for $9.99
They don't have the same shape as the marketplace umbrellas and I'm wondering if it's actually a beach umbrella rather than a patio umbrella but I'm loving the black and white stripped one. I'm planning on checking them out in person!
