The Pink Whale Has Arrived...

On February 1st, Vineyard Vines---known for its pink whale logo and colorful preppy clothing---opened in The Regalia Shopping Center (Poplar at Shady Grove). It is one of only a few Vineyard Vines retail locations nationwide, the rest of their business being in catalog and internet sales. The other retail stores are located in Nantucket, Edgartown and Mashpee, MA, and Greenwich, CT.

Oak Hall, a Memphis tradition in fine clothing since 1859 (my father worked there while in high school) has carried the Vineyard Vines brand for several years, but this year partnered with Vineyard Vines to open a separate location for the brand in the same shopping center. The store carries both men's and women's clothing, and one of the features on the store's interior is a lovely old Chris Craft boat which has been used to create the main counter for the store.

Edit: I am still having trouble with Blogger comments, mainly on the same blogs as yesterday. The "comments" window won't open, as if it is still waiting for photos to download, etc. I checked my pop-up blocker and it is not on. Is anyone else having trouble with this? It is soooo frustrating, as I enjoy visiting and saying hello to you!...

I don't live very far from the Regalia - may need to check them out. Have always enjoyed your blog, and looking forward to new posts.

I've never noticed this brand or known of this store. I'll be coming over this week and drive by, look, at it, maybe even go in.

I'm not familiar with this brand either, but lucky for Memphis!

So do you fancy red or white? I enjoy going to a wine shop - although I don't drink. I haven't acquired a taste for anything alcoholic.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo. Happy Heart's Day!
