Let’s go shopping!!!

I mentioned earlier that Athens is unlike any other town I have ever been to. The town has so much charm. Some students may think that downtown Athens is just a place to go party and get drunk, but all students should definitely visit downtown during the day. It is a totally different atmosphere! In my post today I am going to highlight two stores that I adore.

The first store that I visit frequently is Pitaya. Pitaya is located at 282 East Clayton Street near Mellow Mushroom. Although Pitaya is not unique to Athens (they have locations all around the United States), they still stock items that are sure to make you stand out. The store itself has a charming, boutique feel about it that is hard to duplicate. The staff is always super helpful and I love checking out their new clothes! All clothing items with Pitaya’s label sewn in are made in the United States (This is a wonderful thing, as it puts money back into our own economy!). All UGA girls should check out Pitaya! The clothes are affordable and stylish too (What a great combo for college students)!

The next store in downtown Athens that I love is Heery’s Clothes Closet. Heery’s is located on the corner of College Ave. and Clayton Street, and this store has been a staple in Athens for many years! They opened in 1959 and they are just as popular with students as they are with adults! For those of you on a tight budget you might want to just window shop because Heery’s carries some popular ‘luxury’ brands with ‘luxury’ price tags including: Tibi, Lilly Pulitzer, Marc Jacobs, BCBG, Tory Burch, DVF, Longchamp, and many more! They also carry the latest collection of Vera Bradley. I have gotten quite a few purses at Heery’s and love them all! I have also purchased a few formal dresses at Heery’s, and my latest purchase-a Lily Pulitzer Easter dress (cannot wait to wear it)!
