Best Place for Preppy Chic
The Lucky Knot
101 King St., Alexandria, (703) 549-1797
Color is the name of the game at The Lucky Knot. This is not a store for shrinking violets, but rather for those gregarious personalities who aren’t afraid of vivid hues and brilliant patterns. Designer brands carried include Kate Spade, Vera Bradley, Lilly Pulitzer, and Vineyard Vines. It’s preppy, yes, but not stuffy. The Lucky Knot is not about restrained refinement. You are meant to brunch in their lemon-yellow sundresses, wear their coral statement necklaces to parties, and pack their fuschia-pink tunics for your next vacation.
