Answer: All three brands are featured under one roof at Southern style retailer, Palmetto Moon!

If you've never heard of Palmetto Moon, now's your chance to get briefed on Charlotte's newest Southern style supplier. Palmetto Moon, with South Carolina's iconic palmetto tree and crescent moon as its logo, is technically a chain store, but they customize each location to match the city it serves. Now open as of April 6, here's what you need to know about this special Charlotte store.

 

They will have all your favorite Southern brands

If Palmetto Moon does one thing and one thing only, it is celebrating the slow-and-sweet Southern lifestyle. Basically, if you're known to wear colorful shorts, sip from a YETI cup, or sport an oversized T-shirt, this store will be as close to Heaven as it gets for you. Below are some (though not all—see the full list here) of the brands you'll have the pleasure of shopping when the store opens in Charlotte.

 

They will have UNC Charlotte gear

Show off your alma mater pride in style with Palmetto Moon's curated collection of collegiate gear—from Tervis tumblers to creative stitched pillows to hats, sweatshirts, and more. As mentioned above, the store customizes its offering based on the city it's in, so all the UNC Charlotte tailgating gear you could ever want will be just a short shopping trip away. (These types of items also make great gifts for the super-fan—hint, hint.)

Their Instagram feed feels like a permanent vacation

Just sayin'. If you love scrolling for inspo on IG, consider checking out Palmetto Moon's account—it's bright, beachy, and as Southern as your sweet tea. Speaking of beaches, they have an entire beach essentials collection to make your seaside vacay unforgettable (we're obsessed with the jellyfish float, palm leaves cooler, and printed round towel with tassels).

 

They sell adorable Southern baby clothes

Be the aunt or uncle (or parent!) of the year with some of the sweetest kids clothes on the market. This gingham bow dress is to die for, and mini Tigers-to-be will look darling in this spirited, orange-striped dress-and-bloomers combo. Proceed with caution, though, looking through Palmetto Moon's kids' styles could give you baby fever. You've been warned.

 

The store now open in the SouthPark Mall with a giveaway-fueled celebration on April 21 & 22

It's the moment you've been waiting for... Palmetto Moon's Charlotte Grand Opening party!
