East Nashville Shops
1900 Eastland Ave., East Nashville
Given our loyalty to nontoxic skin care and makeup, it's only natural that we love a beauty boutique that checks off certain boxes: clean and luxurious products, transparent labeling, and a great overall message. So when Lemon Laine—a modern beauty boutique with an ethos that revolves around natural, effective, and sustainable products—opened in one of our favorite cities, we were instant fans. Owner Laura Lemon brings her decade's worth of beauty industry experience to the shop, in which she stocks some of our favorites, including Kjaer Weis, True Botanicals, and our very own goop skincare. Best yet: The design is clean with bright color—and there's an oil bar where you can mix bespoke beauty formulas to meet your specific skin needs. Photos: Caroline Sharpnack.

This store has the vibe of a college radio station with its crafty wooden shelves and endless rows of CDs and LPs. They’ve got an extensive selection of indie music, a very knowledgeable staff, plus they host intimate shows inside the shop a few times a week.
