Fall is the season for snuggling. Get out and start shopping for flannel — the coziest fabric — and other closet must haves commemorating the season.
Taking an afternoon to spend shopping is one thing, but to feel really spoiled you have to head to the Village Center Tahoe. This tourist and local hotspot is full of art galleries, designer brands and sassy salon shops. Sidestreet Boutique is my favorite location to change over my closet each season. This shop is coined Best Clothing Store in South Lake Tahoe and is even more charming as it has been family owned and operated since 1972. Pop into Savvy for the best seasonal fashion brands from Free People and Lucky, the flannel champions of the market. villagecentertahoe.com
Tahoe Nevada Love embodies the region with a mission for a “rugged body, conscious mind.” Fill your cart online with fall fashion for men and women or head to their downtown Reno location in the Basement. This locally owned and operated designer has a killer logo and even better
products, like their beanies, hoodies and long sleeved T-shirts. tahoenevadalove.com
With so many stores to choose from, The Shops at Heavenly Village are a dream for flannel. Buy touristy take homes and fill your suitcase with the latest looks from Up Shirt Creek, Earthbound Trading, Blue Pebbles and Patagonia. One of the coziest stores in the place is High Chaparral Western Wear with hats, apparel and even home furnishings celebrating the checkered textile. theshopsatheavenly.com
