Fleur

We could not give a bigger thumbs-up to the smart mix of lines—Mayle, M Missoni, Robert Rodriguez, Tocca—at this chic shop owned by high school friends Eliza Stoecker and Christina Cerwin.

There's no shortage of dainty shoes with details like bows, kitten heels, and buckles at this ladylike North Carolina footwear chainlet.

Scout & Molly's

The ability to constantly surprise is what makes this colorful, antique-decorated boutique so great: Half the stock is feminine and pretty, while the other 50 percent has a citified edge.

Time After Time

Good vintage stores are an anomaly in the area, so when we came across this one on Chapel Hill's main drag, we figured its prime location equaled a lame selection. And yet: The first-rate medley of denim vests and plaid skirts quickly proved us absolutely wrong.

Uniquities

This is Chapel Hill’s longest-running supplier of the latest jeans, T-shirts, and newest small-designer labels. It's been in the same high-visibility location for the past 13 years, and owner Julie Jennings knows exactly how to keep her clientele happy.
