This holiday season, we're encouraging our readers to support local businesses by shopping right here at home. Consider these Memphis-area establishments for your gift-giving needs.
Your giftees will sport their love for our city in style with Memphis-inspired T-shirts designed and screenprinted by the passionate people at Sachë. With 901 designs, skyline styles, and shirts supporting our grit-and-grind Grizzlies, these unique tees will please even your hard-to-buy-for friends. And "Hey, you guuuys!" we love this Goonies/Grizz mash-up; truffle shuffle optional ($25). Available at 525 South Main or sachedesign.com.
At this lifestyle store, shoppers can find men's and women's clothing, home goods, and made-in-Memphis items from Letters&Co, Rowdy Dept. by Kyle Taylor, Embrace Your Inner Memphis, Kreep Ceramics, and more. We're fans of the tumbled marble coasters from ARCHd, creations of Memphis-born sisters Kristen and Lindsey Archer. A variety of coaster sets ($29) showcase some of the city's most iconic views and spaces. Visit Stock&Belle on Facebook, instagram, or 387 S. Main.
Dedicated Elvis fans will love this fashionable pair of Blue Suede Shoes ($155). The longtime Memphis retailer offers these and other Elvis-inspired garments for men, as well as stylish activewear, polos, and more — for both men and women. Pick a gift from Lansky, and the recipient will "Thank ya, thank ya very much." Visit Lansky Bros. at 126 Beale Street inside the Hard Rock Cafe, 149 Union Avenue inside The Peabody Hotel, or lanskybros.com.
