Every spring can feel a bit like the end to a long hibernation, sparking an urge to freshen up the wardrobe and get outside looking great. Our extended hibernating over this last year has most of us feeling more ready than ever to clean up – or even rethink – our look. Here are four Charlotte shops where you can get a fresh start, so you’ll be looking your best in the springtime sun.


Head to Versona to peruse a wide selection of clothing and accessories at comfortable price points. Of several locations around Charlotte, their store at Rivergate Shopping Mall is closest to The Palmer and will give you the chance to hop into neighboring boutiques, too. For unique finds – an eye-catching necklace, a new dress or shoes for an evening out – Versona delivers, and with plenty of flowing sundresses, playful sunglasses and handbags, they’ll set you up to enjoy the sunshine.

Charm City Boutique

Bold style and distinctive character define the offerings at Charm City Boutique, located on University City Boulevard near the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Looking for a statement piece? Charm City has showstopper dresses and unique tops for fun evenings out, when you’re ready to be seen. It’s not all about after-dark attire, though; they’ve got professional and casual items, and trendy pieces for men, too. Expect an awesome customer experience and a stylish selection unlike anything you’ll see elsewhere.


For bright and colorful items to match the playful energy of spring, francesca’s makes a great first stop. Visit their location at the Charlotte Premium Outlets in Dixie – Berryhill and choose from a wide-ranging selection that will help you to fast-track your wardrobe update.

The Sporting Gent

The rustic hunting lodge decor and fashionable sporting and lifestyle attire at The Sporting Gent make this Charlotte menswear boutique “a slice of southern and sporting heaven.” Located in the Colony Shopping Center in Myers Park, TSG features high-end, high-quality clothing, hunting gear, fly fishing goods, and all manner of manly accessories, from tumblers to woodsy-scented “mandles.” If you’re heading to the field after suiting up here, it’ll be the best-looking hunting trip of your life. Otherwise, you can show off anywhere in your stylish new duds.
