Can’t find boutiques on Beale? Check out these timeless and trendy shops just a few blocks away.

Muse Inspired Fashion
After searching for the right venue, Memphis native Lisa Doss found a home for her eclectic boutique nine years ago. Lisa stays away from carrying basics—no simple shift dresses here—and instead focuses on pieces such as embroidered Old Gringo Boots, artisan necklaces (below), and other out-of-the-ordinary clothing for men and women. 546 South Main; museinspiredfashion.com

Shop Girl New York
Owner Tamara Sorman applies her 30 years of experience as a buyer for New York City shops to cherry-pick every item in her store. Choose from Elizabeth and James tees, Hunter wellies, and Nicole Miller party dresses. 119 South Main; shopgirlnewyork.com

This affordable gallery shop at the Memphis College of Art features juried work from students, faculty, and alumni. You’ll find one-of-a-kind keepsakes (not shown) ranging from $1 recycled bottle cap magnets to handmade books and $1,500 fine-art paintings. 477 South Main; facebook.com/477store

Sir Samuel’s
When South Main developer Cynthia Grawemeyer opened Sir Samuel’s (named after her new grandson) in July, she wanted to recall the feel of the area in the 1920s. So she designed the boutique to look like a dress shop combined with a speakeasy. Cynthia stocks men’s hipster sport coats and vintage neckties, alongside sophisticated dresses and embroidered Feltman Brothers baby outfits. 522 South Main; sirsamuels.com

Hoot + Louise
After a lifetime spent playing dress-up with her granny “Hoot” Louise’s clothes, Anna Avant opened this charming boutique filled with vintage finds. “I like clothes that say something and are unique,” she says. “Each piece should be like a work of art.” 109 G.E. Patterson; hootandlouise.bigcartel.com

Run by Cynthia Grawemeyer’s daughters, Sir Samuel’s sister boutique stocks young women’s clothes that are all under $100. It focuses on eco-conscious designers such as LTR and REUSE Jeans made from recycled fabric. 534 South Main; everleahs.com

Time for a Shopping Break?
Make a meal out of the $5 sides at South of Beale (SOB) choosing from gastropub fare such as duck fried rice topped with a sunny-side-up egg, bacon-maple Brussels sprouts, and Gouda mac and cheese. The drink menu is equally enticing (and affordable) with $8 martinis such as the Smoky Bleu—chilled vodka served in a glass rimmed with Laphroaig and topped with blue cheese-stuffed olives. 361 South Main; southofbeale.com
