Our local boutiques are the fashion gems of the city. Here, you’ll experience shopping as it should be –friendly and charming, the southern way.
Your first stop for quaint, family-owned boutiques is Devine Street. Mother-daughter owned Monkee’s has designer labels for women across generations, from college students to the mother of the bride. Trying to teach the man in your life a thing or two about fashion? He’s in the right hands at Brittons. Be sure to check out their bow tie selection, a great finishing touch to any southern gentleman’s ensemble. We teamed up with Brittons to create one of the most watched bow tie tutorials on YouTube, so you’re all set once you leave the store. And what Southern city is complete without a signature Lily Pulitzer store? Stop by Pink Sorbet for the latest bright color combination of the season.
Keep strolling down the sidewalk to complete your look with accessories from Handpicked or Just the Thing. We recommend a monogram – that’s our Southern bias coming through. Finish the family shopping at Little Lambs & Ivy, a children’s clothing store or get ready for the big day at London and Lace Bridal Boutique. You’ll love the variety along Columbia’s walkable boutique corridor, and if you need a shopping reboot, stop by one of the many food and drink hot spots that line Devine, like Henry’s, Craft and Draft, or the Mediterranean Team Room.
Whether you’re running errands or grabbing lunch with a friend, you’ll stumble on more one-of-a-kind boutiques scattered across Columbia. In the heart of downtown, Granger Owings offers classy, modern, and stylish clothing for men and women. If you’re looking for more urban, relaxed pieces, head to Bohemian in Five Points. Down the road in Forest Acres, you’ll find a number of quaint, upscale shops mixed in with national retailers, as well as children’s boutiques, like Carousel Kids and Tootsies Children’s Shoes. Once the kids are covered, head over to Gwen Rawls, an Italian shoe boutique in Trenholm Plaza that will take any shoe lover’s breath away.
Need a one-stop-shop for birthday, wedding, and baby gifts? Check out the selection at Nifty Gifty boutique in Chapin. In nearby Lexington, give Purple Peacock Boutique a try. As the store promises, you’ll find color and fashion style as unique as a peacock.
We’ve got the creative, imaginative spirit that gives way to great fashion. Whether it’s southern staples, like bright colors, eyelet dresses, and seersucker—or urban, eclectic, and European, we’ve got you covered in Columbia.
