There’s definitely no shortage of destinations for ladies who love to shop in Arlington. But where should you go if you want a variety of locally produced goods under one roof?
We’d recommend heading over to Gracie Lane.
Located on South Cooper Street on the corner of Bardin Road, Gracie Lane opened doors with a “soft launch” in Arlington in June. The official grand opening was September 7. It’s a brightly lit and stylishly-decorated destination, offering the ladies of Arlington a unique — and very personal — retail experience. It’s a collection of around 100 retail boutiques ranging from fashion, jewelry, home décor and more. And the owners of the boutiques aren’t selling you mass-produced stuff. Most of the goods are locally produced with love by local people. Talk about a one-stop shop that you can get excited about!
We think one of the best parts of the Gracie Lane experience, however, is their personal attention. Sure – you can come in off the street and shop to your heart’s content. But the friendly greeters & cashiers at the front along with the amazingly kind boutique owners give you the extra touch. We all know you can shop anywhere, but often the difference in who gets your dollars is the customer service and personal attention you experience. You’ll definitely get both at Gracie Lane.
Don’t worry fellas. They’ve even thought about you and your experience. They’ve created a “Man Cave” outfitted with comfy seating, a flat screen TV and sports memorabilia on the wall so you’ll have a place to crash while your significant other shops ’til she drops.
So it’s all under one roof: clothes, candles, art, jewelry, furniture and more. Whether you’re outfitting the house, kids or yourself, you can’t go wrong at Gracie Lane. Who knows – you may want to open your own boutique at Gracie Lane (no boutiques are currently available but you can inquire about their waiting list).
Whatever the case, sounds like alternatives to busy shopping centers and mass-produced goods are alive and well thanks to places like Gracie Lane in Arlington. Be sure to swing by and see it for yourself.
