University Park Shops

Shop neighborhood
Cabana
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.

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.
University Park
Neiman Marcus
400 Northpark Center, University Park
Neiman’s was born in Dallas, and no trip to Texas is complete without a visit to the mothership (there’s the original downtown, and a bigger outpost in Northpark). Here, you’ll experience the sort of service that Stanley Marcus described in his epic book, Minding the Store, which is a must-read for anyone who loves retail. But, we digress: The shoe department here is particularly epic, and dressed models still roam the floors, making it a wonderfully old-world experience.
