Score Something Cute from Hoot + Louise
Everything in Hoot + Louise, South Main’s newest boutique, is almost guaranteed to make you say “aww!” It’s like owner Anna Avant hand selected everything in the shop for maximum adorablility.
The bright, high-ceilinged shop is stocked with handmade housewares, vintage dishes, silk screened onesies, jewelry and a well-curated selection of clothing.
While they’ve got a fairly large selection of hand-picked vintage clothing, it would be wrong to call Hoot + Louise a vintage store. About half of the clothes in the shop are new items from independent designers that can’t be found anywhere else in Memphis. When I was there yesterday, I fell hard for a new green tweed blazer by Dear Creatures.
The shop, which was inspired by Avant’s grandmother, has been open about two weeks. I’m excited to watch them grow – I have a feeling it’s going to become one of my favorite stores.
