Dallas retail darling Merry Vose has fully solidified her position as the fairy godmother of must-have fashion — and of ever-burgeoning West Lovers Lane — with the opening of Clover, her third boutique within a half-mile. Following the cult success of Cabana (which opened its lavender doors on West Lovers Lane in 2008 after operating out of Vose’s Devonshire pool house) and Canary, the sophisticated elder sister, Clover debuted in late spring as the fun, bubbly youngest of the group.
As the unofficial clothier of every chic Dallas mom (and beyond — Southern Living once deemed Cabana and Canary as two of the “10 Best Boutiques in the South“), Vose realized she couldn’t neglect their daughters. Beyond Clover’s emerald front door, you’ll find a well-edited collection of youthful contemporary brands like Acacia, Place Nationale, American Vintage, S/W/F, Koch, and denim from AGolde.
To complement the ensembles, a variety of vintage Murano glass bowls are filled with enamel charms for DIY necklaces and the store’s embroidery and monogramming station, a partnership with the Monogram Club, is always humming.
Vose’s eye for emerging and under-the-radar designers remains a unique draw (in a city like Dallas, you can get your label fix elsewhere), but much like the beachy, bohemian Cabana and the more luxe — but still approachable — Canary, the interiors make the experience.
Housed in a sunny cottage reenvisioned by Julie Hayes, who also designed Cabana, Canary, and Vose’s own homes, Clover is a perfect mix of elegant and playful, offering a dreamy retreat — complete with a sunny backyard oasis — to discover your next lucky find.
