This burgeoning fashion capital has a ton of must-shops to visit.
And luckily, we have your guide to those shops. From designer women’s boutiques, to specialty food shops, to high-end home stores and cutting edge salons, Nashville has proven itself to be both the music capital and a shopping capital of the country.
Keep on scrolling to see what Music City USA has to offer. And when it’s time to go shopping on your trip, just remember to save some cash for the next plane ticket down.
Nashville is addicting.
This is the girl with casual style’s dream boutique. They have a denim selection that will make you talk yourself into buying yet another pair of jeans, and their collection of easy-breezy dresses are perfect for the no-fuss dresser.
CURRENT/ELLIOTT, James Perse, The Great, Citizens of Humanity and ALC. This is a list of some of our favorite designers, and it also happens to be a list of some of the brands carried at Emerson Grace. Swoon.
The designer-obsessed shopper’s paradise. H. Audrey — owned by singer/songwriter Holly Williams — stocks the best of the best, from Golden Goose, to Vince, to Helmut Lang and Elizabeth & James. It’s also Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite boutique in Nashville. NBD.
If you’re looking to break a shopping habit, a trip to this Green Hills shop is not in your cards. Habit is part-clothing-store-part-lingerie-boutique, and we want every Velvet tee, Eberjey PJ set, and Ulla Johnson frock in store.
Yes, the K. McCarthy Nashville boutique is gorgeous, but it’s the K. McCarthy Fashion Truck that has us obsessed. It’s a boutique that comes to you. How could you not love that?
Where oh where has Seraphine been all our lives? The Peruvian pyrite jewelry (Seraphine’s signature) is the perfect mix of timeless, yet modern style… And it’s also one of Gwyneth’s faves.
The Perfect Pair
The Perfect Pair recently made a big move to Hillsboro, and the new boutique is simply stunning. The selection of clothing, shoes, and accessories is perfectly boho-chic, and any store with a shoe wall is a store for us.
Specialty & Food Shops
We’re calling it — Barton Perreira sunglasses are the new ‘It’ shades. The eyewear designer has a pair for everyone; from aviators, to round shades, to cateye frames and wayfarers. And they’re all available in various colors and finishes. It’s custom eyewear at its best.
If you weren’t hungry before, prepare yourself. Little Gourmand carries the finest caviar, foie gras, truffles, and dips and tapenades in the city. And did we mention the freshly baked French macarons? Can’t forget about those.
This designer baby boutique has everything you need for a stylish baby wardrobe and a stylish baby nursery. They’ll also personalize just about anything with the baby’s name, initials, birth date, or whatever your heart desires.
The Dotted Line
Calling all stationery lovers! The Dotted Line is your new go-to shop in Nashville. Of course the paper goods are top-notch, but it’s the warm environment of the shop — and the gorgeous hanging paper display — that keeps us coming back.
The Frosted Affair
Not only does The Frosted Affair make and design stunning cakes for your most special events, but they also bake up the most scrumptious cookies, cupcakes, and cake pops that also happen to be beautifully decorated. Is it cheat day yet?
This isn’t your run-of-the-mill general store. White’s Mercantile (also owned by Holly Williams) has everything from gourmet treats, to natural beauty products, to designer accessories and unique home goods. And yes — It also has Gwyneth’s stamp of approval.
Home & Decor Boutiques
Looking for a one-stop shop for clothing, jewelry, gifts, accessories, and home decor? X marks the spot. AshBlue has all of that and more. You’ll need to explore the shop for yourself to see.
If you’ve never walked into a store and immediately said, “I’ll take it all,” you’ve clearly never stepped foot in Cadeau. The selection of decor and gifts is exceptional — you’ll leave the store wondering why you haven’t always had a brass bull head to hang above your desk. Seems like a no-brainer to us.
Beauty Boutiques & Salons
Lucy Pop Salon
Warning: Lucy Pop Salon is not for the girl with tame tresses. The badass salon loves color, both in their design aesthetic and hair dyeing practices. Plus, each cut and color is finished to perfection. Seriously, you’ll look like you just stepped out of a photo shoot. Which is how we should always look.
Woo Skincare + Cosmetics
Woo-hoo! A beauty buff’s retail paradise! Kiehl’s, YSL, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, La Mer, Deborah Lippmann, *pause for breath*, NARS, St. Tropez, and Smashbox — Need we say more?
