Being a small business owner in this amazing city that embraces small business culture, I wanted to share my 4 favorite boutiques and their Black Friday Deals! So take the time on Friday to shop small this holiday season. I promise, it is very rewarding to know that your purchase is directly benefiting the family that owns the business.
4 Best Boutiques in Memphis
Dazzle offers fashionable jewelry, handbags, gift options and accessories in an environment that is unique to Memphis shoppers. Located in the River Oaks area of Memphis in the Regalia Shopping Center, Dazzle features items that are categorized as trendy, fashionable, and classic, for women and children of all ages for all occasions. The inventory is carefully selected to be a unique mix of local and small Southern artists like Margo.Rebecca, Samuels Pottery Designs, Thad Cline, Mark Edge, and Able, as well as a full complement of national brands including Hammitt, Whiting and Davis, Barefoot Dreams, Gorjana, Jenny Bird, Daniella Lahavi, Thacker NY, Simon Sebbag, Kendra Scott, Jason Rose, Capri Blue, Voluspa and many more. Their wide selection of designer brands will excite buyers looking for accessories at all price points.
The owners, Amy and Michael Egerman are extremely helpful, super personable and always available and they know every piece of inventory. I love that they work full-time at the store to ensure a high-level of customer service that enhances the Dazzle experience. They started their professional lives in Atlanta, where Michael began on his path in retail, merchandising and global sourcing, while Amy focused primarily on marketing and media buying. As Michael’s career progressed, the family moved from Atlanta to Chicago and then to Memphis in 2002 for Michael to take the helm as VP of Merchandising for an AK based company. However, soon after the move, Amy identified an opportunity in retail that she had seen in New York, Miami and L.A. while on trips to visit family and friends: a boutique that focused on gifts, fashionable jewelry and accessories at moderate prices from brands that were not represented in the Memphis market! After a few years of research and commitment from brands, Dazzle incorporated in 2006 and opened in 2007.
I just love the accessories I snagged while shopping around at Dazzle last week. I have been eyeing this Hammit bag for a few months and finally get to add it to my collection! It is absolutely perfect for travel, which means it will get a lot of use with all of the trips I have planned for 2019! I chose this Thad Cline, handmade statement necklace for a StyleBlueprint photo shoot and fell in love when the model put it on. I knew I just had to own it. I love the wide variety of price points that Dazzle offers. I paired my beautiful hand crafted necklace with a simple pair of gold colored geo drop earrings for $12.99.

Stripes are in this season and button up shirt style anything is a huge hit! Why not pair the two trends together with a striped shirt dress look? I decided to pair my new favorite dress with our beautiful Ink and Alloy earrings and the very popular, Melie Bianco crossbody.

I love Mozelle’s unique style that fits both the young and the more mature! I always find very trendy yet classic boutique styles that add a little color and flare to my closet! The owner’s style is truly impeccable and the prices are very competitive. I have never been in this store and not find several perfect items to take home with me!
In the pictures below, I chose an oversized, mustard crop sweater and these very comfortable ash black pull on jeggings. Mozelle had tons of great jewel toned, chunky sweaters. It was so hard to choose from. Of course tortoise style jewelry is very popular this winter season and looks great dressed up or down with any outfit! I chose a pair of tortoise hoop drops that I can’t wait to wear with my LBD (little black dress) this holiday season. Mozelle has a great selection of shoes, most under $60. I chose to style this casual look with a pair of faux suede strappy pumps. Of course a pair of casual flats would look great too but I like to be a little extra with my casual wear sometimes.

A true Memphis staple, Lanskys was the clothier to the king, and several other Memphians. Located in the Peabody hotel, Lanskys also outfits people from all over the world. With very established and popular boutique brands stocking the racks, you will be sure to hit the streets in high style after a visit to Lansky Bros.
Lansky Bros has several shops in The Peabody Hotel, my favorite being the accessory shop and Lansky 126. Local jewelry designer, Brave Designs is very exclusive and desired throughout the Memphis community and guess what? They carry the line! My neck piece in the photo is of course a Brave Design! Honestly, even though Lansky has amazing looks, I fell in love with this Brave necklace, fur Band of Gypsy shoes, and this amazing camel colored leather motto jacket, and decided to base my look around these items! I paired this look with a pair of charcoal jeans with a fringe around the cuffs and a beautiful cream, piped top.
LANSKY BLACK FRIDAY DEALS
