Most of the shopping near The Cloister caters to women, but then again, so does shopping in general. Cross over to St. Simons Island, which is a straight shot down Ocean Road, for some retail therapy. Sea Island and St. Simons Island are traditionally known for being very preppy; and the shopping options are no exception. Head over to Tibi, which is a well-known women’s clothing line that specializes in crazy patterns and fun colors, or to treat your feet, shimmy on down to The Pampered Foot where you can find dazzling designer shoes by Stuart Weitzman and Kate Spade.
Guys can find their inner southern charm at Gentlemen’s Outfitters with the ultra preppy Vineyard Vines clothing line. If you continue to wander down the streets of St. Simons Island, you’ll find plenty of interestingly preppy stores filled with pastel shirts and embroidered pants, seemingly appropriate for this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star resort.
We have five shops at The Cloister that carry everything from resort attire, gifts, t-shirts, caps, golfing apparel and more. On St Simons Island there are art galleries and local craft shops.
