When October is in sight, all of your fall dreams come to life. Pumpkin spice is everywhere. The leaves are changing from those summer greens to beautiful reds, yellows, and oranges. And there are scarecrows, cornstalks, talk of Thanksgiving and Halloween. Of course, with Holidays comes sales with Christmas top of mind. 

This Fall, do something a little different; something outside of your usual routine of preparing for the impending holidays. Gather your girlfriends for a weekend getaway to Hilton Head Island for a fun shopping excursion. Come browse great deals for yourself or someone special on your holiday list.


Shopping for Top Brands

Autumn Excitement? Post-Thanksgiving Blues? Pre-Christmas deals? Shopping Fixes Everything! There are dozens of shops in Coligny Plaza, but a few are more revered than others. The Watusi Café (in neighboring Coligny Plaza) is a number one place for breakfast and has a lovely marketplace. You'll find wonderful Lowcountry-inspired gifts, candles, and housewares. The selection of hand-crafted coastal treasures make the perfect gifts. In Coligny facing N. Forest Beach, you'll find The Pelican's Pouch. This popular Coligny store sells unique, rustic, ocean-inspired gifts that make you reminisce about your time on Hilton Head Island.


While many of the Coligny Plaza shops are popular, Island Girl is one of THE best. The merchandise is ever-changing and unique, with apparel and accessories for toddlers, teens, adult women, and so on. Ladies love Island Girl for their retail selection, laid back atmosphere, and top brands, such as Tolani, HOBO, Barbara Gerwit, Waxing Poetic, Lenny & Eva, and Pura Vida to name a few.
