Yup. Vermont, for all its other wonderful attributes, is also a great place to shop.

Whether you’re looking for a new outfit for a special occasion, or a whole new wardrobe, Vermont offers some of the best shopping in New England. If you live in the Green Mountain State, or if a trip to Vermont is on your calendar, here’s our top ten list of clothing stores in Vermont.

10. The Yellow Turtle

If your travels take you to the ski resort town of Stowe, take some time to browse at The Yellow Turtle.

Their collection of fine children’s apparel includes some of the best choices in kids’ outdoor wear. Choose a warm and cozy parka for winter, a bright raincoat to keep spring’s showers at bay, or the perfect summertime swimwear.

9. Ecco

If designer denim is your style, be sure to check out Ecco on Church Street in Burlington. For nearly 20 years, they’ve been bringing the best in casual, modern style to Vermont.

With brands like Rich and Skinny, For All Mankind and Citizens of Humanity, the best of city style doesn’t have to mean a trip to Boston or New York.

8. Elevation Clothing

Quality choices in fine outdoor apparel is the standard at Elevation Clothing on Central Street in Woodstock.

The shop is the perfect place to find a warm jacket for wandering among autumn leaves, the right winter boots, or a set of high tech exercise and running attire for workouts in any season.

7. Skirack of Burlington

When people think of Vermont, odds are they think about skiing. And when it comes to clothing for the ski slopes or your next cross country adventure, Skirack is ready to outfit you.

And when winter snow melts away, head back to Skirack for the cycling and running clothing men and women need to enjoy Vermont’s warm weather sports.

6. Effie Dudley

Get ready to shine when the skiing ends and the apres skiing parties begin in stylish clothing from Effie Dudley in Killington.

From dresses to casual wear, they are one of Killington’s premier clothing stores.

5. Zutano

Babies and children are the star of the show at Zutano. Based in the heart of Cabot, Vermont, this 20 plus year old company believes in providing quality, beautiful clothing that parents will love to see and kids will love to wear.

Check out their stores on Main Street in Montpelier or in their hometown of Cabot on Coits Pond Road.

4. Taylor Lauren

If you’ve ever seen the old films where stores provided one on one customer service, and made each visitor feel special, you’ll know what to expect at Taylor Lauren. But if you haven’t you’re in for a wonderful surprise.

From the comfortable western-style seating, to the exceptional service, shopping at Taylor Lauren is like nothing you’ll find in a mall or discount center. And you’ll leave feeling special, with the perfect new outfit in hand. Visit them on Central Street in Woodstock, or on Depot Street in Ludlow.

3. Orvis

Yes, Orvis is a national chain, but there’s something special about visiting a store where it started. At Orvis, you can find everything from the right outfit for Monday’s meeting to the perfect gear for your next fly fishing outing.

Visit the flagship Orvis store on Main Street in historic Manchester.
