Shopping online might be the way of the future, but for now, there is still plenty of action in Dallas stores. Whether you want to splurge on a hard-to-find item at The SIL pop-up at The Mansion on Turtle Creek or indulge in winter beauty products at a newly expanded Bluemercury, these shops have their doors open and waiting.
Billy Reid x Mumford & Sons
Southern gentleman-designer Billy Reid and Mumford & Sons have collaborated to design a capsule collection inspired by the band's new Delta Tour EP. The collection launched November 9, and the EP launches November 20. Reid has dressed the band for many shoots and appearances through the years and they have always wanted to create a capsule together, a spokesperson says. The collection is a Gentlemen of the Road project, and all of Mumford & Sons' proceeds from the capsule will benefit the Equal Justice Initiative.

Those who have been patiently waiting for the expansion of this beloved beauty shop at 83 Highland Park Village will be elated to hear that a grand opening has been slated for November 13. The new space is double the size of the original space. The boutique also includes an 836-square-foot mezzanine that offers the brand's Conscious Beauty Program. Shoppers will earn $20 in rewards cash for every $100 spent at the new boutique on November 13 and 14.
This fashion jewelry boutique is one of three new shops at Galleria Dallas. It offers earrings, hair accessories, necklaces, bracelets, rings, kids’ accessories, face masks, and ear piercing. Since launching in 2010, Lovisa now has more than 400 stores in 15 countries globally, including one at the Parks Mall in Arlington that opened in 2019. The Galleria boutique is on level two near Altar’d State.
Dallasites cannot get enough of this brand and its blouses and dresses that are crafted by more than 600 artisans all over Mexico. Owner Cristina Lynch has launched a holiday collection of apparel plus tree skirts, Christmas ornaments, table runners, and more. Prices run about $35 for a three-ornament set to $450 for the gorgeous "Falda de Navidad" tree skirt that was hand-embroidered and woven on a backstrap loom by a community in Zinacantan, Chiapas.
New in West Village, this chic boutique founded by 21-year-old Stephen Swetish is offering small businesses based in DFW (and throughout Texas) a place to showcase their goods. Think clothes, jewelry, and even home goods with the intention of rotating product and product lines to keep the store fresh. For the opening lineup, shoppers can expect to find everything from trendy clothing to a cult jewelry line to a bohemian brand that was previously available only online. There are also oodles of gift options like bath bombs, candles, and cocktail kits.
The revered home goods name, formerly headquartered in Fort Worth, is getting new life as a Dallas-based online store. This comes after Pier 1 went bankrupt in May 2020, much to the dismay of its loyal following. The new online presence offers the same assortment of furniture, lighting, fragrance, tableware, and décor they've offered since they were founded in 1962.
