The Tannery is a unique store that has done a fantastic job reinventing itself over the years. Now some of you who live in Boston might be surprised by this choice but not only have I found many favorite pairs of shoes on their shelves, I have also picked up some fantastic dresses and blouses too. I adore many of the unique, small label and luxe clothing brands that they carry and think that the mix of merchandise makes it a “must stop here” on your shopping list. That being said, the merchandise can be a bit overpriced and the owner is known to be quite cranky. So, buyer beware.
The Tannery is best known for being a go-to for footwear – carrying brands that range from Hunter and Sperry to Frye and Marc by Marc Jacobs. With recently revamped expansive retail shops in Back Bay and Harvard Square, The Tannery has expanded its footprint into apparel carrying on-trend looks for men and women that rival some of the better boutiques in Boston. The Tannery also carries high-end gear for the trendy outdoorsman (and woman) so it’s worth checking in if you’re in the market for a stylish parka.
What are some of my favorite women’s clothing brands at The Tannery?
Sea – Pretty tops and dresses
Smythe – Tailored and pretty perfect, this Canadian company delivers gorgeous clothes
Gryphon – A unique NYC based outerwear collection
Erin Kleinberg – I love her silky creations
If you haven’t been to The Tannery in a while, pop by and take a look. If you’re willing to drop $200+, you’ll leave with something quite pretty.
