Shop Local: Kittie Kyle

Lovers of luxury shopping and fresh-off-the-runway styles will love Kittie Kyle boutique in East Memphis.

Kittie Kyle is a chic women's boutique that specializes in timeless, unique designer clothing and accessories. 

Whether you are shopping for resort pieces for travel or a night out on the town, Kittie Kyle has been a go-to boutique for luxury shopping in Memphis since it opened its doors back in the early 80s (it's named after the great aunt of the founding sisters).

Kittie Kyle: Women's Boutique In Memphis

Cindy Gambrell purchased Kittie Kyle in 2000, and with her background in Retail Sales and Merchandise Buying, she's curated a boutique that caters to the bold, creative woman that thrives on having a unique sense of style. 

After 17 years in the iconic Chickasaw Oaks Shopping Center, Kittie Kyle moved to a new space in The Shops of Laurelwood in 2018. I stopped by recently to talk with Cindy and her friendly, impeccably styled staff, and to check out all of the new arrivals—they get them almost daily!

Personal Styling At Kittie Kyle

One of the things that I really enjoy about Kittie Kyle is the personal styling experience that you have while you're in the boutique. Personal shopping and consulting can be a lost art in the time of fast fashion, but their team of stylists truly help you build a wardrobe of pieces that work with your life, vs. just getting you to shop, shop, shop.
