A fresh crop of stores has sprouted in Dallas, while a few old favorites are offering something new. This is where to wear out your credit cards this month.
What started as one of the first flash-sale Facebook pages is now a brick-and-mortar shopping destination on Lovers Lane. The shop offers baubles, trinkets, scarves and clutches that range in price from $25 to $50. Don’t leave without visiting the necklace bar, where you can build you own jeweled adornment. You can also bring in a party dress for personalized accessory pairings.
Owner Jason Lenox’s cool home accessories line, J. Alexander, has been picked up by The Smithsonian. The collection includes boxes in various sizes, candlestick holders, cigar ashtrays, wine coasters, vanity trays, napkin holders, ring holders, letter openers, matchbox covers, tissue box covers, picture frames and vanity mirrors. Prices range from $69 to $495.
The brand claims to be "the perfect blend of femininity and toughness, both contemporary and timeless." The Galleria store is the first in Dallas, offering the signature quirky prints, flirty silhouettes and luxe fabrics.
Embree & Lake
Marc Lake has modernized the 54-year-old antique shop, first by changing the name from Donald J. Embree Antiques to Embree & Lake. The venerated Donald Embree Antiques focused on 18th- and 19th-century antiques, and when Lake took over, he carried on the legacy by incorporating more current pieces, including modern art.
If it’s been a while since you visited this Lakewood store, you may want to put it back into the rotation. Newly remodeled, it features even more coveted home decor, like a summer art profile series. You can even pick up fresh flowers and a bottle of bubbly.
Luxury Garage Sale
After a series of pop-ups, this Chicago import has found a permanent home in Snider Plaza. The 1,500-square-foot luxury consignment boutique features designer clothing and accessories — some new, with tags still on, as well as vintage and gently used — from Chanel, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Celine and Oscar de la Renta.
A charming new shop is coming to NorthPark Center, where you can find hand-finished jewelry in sterling silver, 14-karat gold and Pandora Rose accented with precious gemstones. Bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings are designed to be combined, matched, layered or stacked.
The California-based retailer is planting roots in Texas in the former Trunk Club space on Henderson Avenue. Everything has a Cali-cool vibe, with lines like Blue Life, For Love and Lemons, Stone Cold Fox, Nightcap, Free People, and Mara Hoffman. Prices range from around $85 to $495, and you can score dresses, rompers, jumpsuits and accessories.
Dsquared2 takes over the pop-up space formerly occupied by Comme des Garcon Play. This curated collection features men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, shoes, and accessories collections. This pop-up is the only place in Dallas to find the women’s collection and Italian-crafted shoes. You’ve got a year to visit the pop-up, so save up so you can splurge.
Design maven Trina Turk recently visited her Dallas boutique at Highland Park Village to celebrate her brand’s 20th anniversary. Turk created special prints to mark the milestone, used throughout the bold and vibrant ready-to-wear garments women have come to know and love.
