4711 W. Lovers Lane, Bluffview
This store was once literally housed in cabana on owner Merry Vose's property. However, when her covert, by-appointment operation was shut down by the city, she took her fanbase to Lovers Lane. It's equally easy to miss there, which only adds to the allure and sense of discovery upon spotting the unmarked, lavender door. The same mix of pretty, affordable, labels—MiH, Monrow, Steven Alan, Nili Lotan—abounds. Merry has since opened a bigger sister store, Canary.
4609 West Lovers Ln., University Park
Merry Vose’s Cabana is a siren song in Dallas for all the women who love pretty, easily wearable labels, and so in response, she opened up Canary—a bigger, splashier store just down the street. The space is equally homey, and filled with a mix of lesser-known finds like Christian Wijnants, SEA New York, and Each x Other.
8300 Preston Rd., University Park
At first glance, this looks like it’s solely devoted to evening wear—and evening wear is its mainstay. But these aren’t your average cocktail dresses: Mary Katrantzou, Chloe, and Balenciaga all line the racks, along with Pierre Hardy shoes and a smattering of jewels.
Cebolla Fine Flowers
4415 Lovers Lane, University Park
Cebolla Fine Flowers is owned by couple and business partners Luit and Jamie Huizenga, who have been running the business since shortly after Luit emigrated from Holland in the '80s. Their state-of-the-art warehouse (where they also live with their daughter) is equipped with geothermal heating, which keeps the countless orchid plants healthy year-round. In the summer months, they actually offer monarch butterfly chrysalises, which eventually hatch and fly away. If you can't make it to their shop on Lover's Lane, they deliver to almost every neighborhood in the city.
Ceylon et Cie
1319 Dragon St., Arts District
Michelle Nussbaumer, the interior designer we collaborated with on the goop pop-up, has a not-to-be-missed showroom of her own. The best part is that it is literally packed to the gills, which makes it feel like an amazing treasure hunt. Nussbaumer has nailed a distinctly Texan brand of luxury: You’ll find an eclectic mix of antiques of all ages and styles (her 18th century French tabletop is particularly great), sitting next to African and Middle Eastern tribal relics, Mid-Century modern furniture, and Michelle’s own line of contemporary designs. Anyone in the market for top-quality antiques, including copious varieties of porcelain Chinoiserie, would want to move in here.
Emily Summers Studio 54
54 Highland Park Village, Highland Park
Celebrated interior designer Emily Summers just opened her own showroom in Highland Park Village, which is a pretty great source for inspiration. Her style is undeniably refined without being cold—lots of gorgeous velvets and other luxe fabrics on nice clean lines.
Forestwood Antique Mall
5333 Forest Ln., North Dallas
In a state known for its antique fairs, you’re bound to stumble across great vintage troves, this one being one of the very best. As its name suggests, it’s an antique mall not a shop, and you should expect to spend some time. You’ll find everything from Murano glass chandeliers, to Art Deco dining tables, to Chinese lacquered everything, to Art Deco dining tables. Bonus: They ship everywhere.
Forty Five Ten
4510 McKinney Ave.
Brian Bolke and his late partner, Shelly Musselman, revolutionized retail in town back when they opened in 2000, bringing some of the world’s best designers, homeware, and a restaurant— T —all under one beautiful roof. You’ll find Proenza Schouler, Marni and Delpozo, to Kelly Wearstler home accessories, and Diptyque candles—and most recently, the goop line of organic skincare.
8687 North Central Exwy., North Dallas
We’ve always been fans of Nordstrom, but now we have another big reason to stop by their Northpark outpost: From May 12th through June 25th, goop is setting up a shop-in-shop inside. We’ve assembled a wellness-centric edit of best-selling clean beauty products, workout gear, dinner-simplifying cooking tools, and so much more—including essentials from our own family of house lines: goop by Juice Beauty skincare, closet basics from goop Label, goop Wellness vitamin and supplement regimens, plus goop Fragrance edition 02—shiso, which is crafted from gorgeous, natural ingredients (without any of the typical toxins). You can find goop-in@Nordstrom (furnished by 1stdibs) in seven other cities—including LA, Seattle, Toronto, and Chicago, to name a few—plus a full expression online, through June 25.
4445 Travis St., Knox / Henderson
Grange Hall, with its gothic, cabinet-of-curiosities vibe, is the ying to Dallas’ glitzier yang. There’s a pretty gorgeous range of home goods—Ted Muehling candlesticks, Astier de Villate ceramics, Cire Trudon candles—along with really stunning jewelry. They just opened an on-site café too, that serves artfully arranged food and an encyclopaedia's worth of teas. This is inarguably one of Dallas’ very best stores
