You don’t have to go to the UK to find what’s hot in fashion. Sashay Around in Cashiers has the latest line of Wellies and Wellie Bobs, which guarantee happy feet in rain or snow. For the uninitiated, Wellies are cool polka-dot, stripe, and flower-print rubber boots you’ve probably seen strutting around town and country. Add to that Wellies’ line of sweats and vests in dazzling colors. If country club casual is more your style, check out Sashay’s full array of contemporary classics: blouses, shirts, pullovers, skirts, pants, dresses, rainwear, and more. Accessorize with beautiful scarves, handbags, and belts. There’s something for every taste from divine to sublime to glitzy and glam.
And don’t forget wedding apparel from mother-of-the-bride to the bridal party. In fact, Sashay Around began as a clothing and fabric store, complete with a professional seamstress who would design custom-order clothing. Times have changed and they no longer make garments, but Sashay still has a world-class alterations expert on staff to give you that perfect fit.
Sashay Around has been serving Highlands and Cashiers for nearly 40 years. Co-owner Debi Stewart says the shop got its name when she and her sister reached high school age. Her mom, Gay Townsend, was looking for a new venture to occupy her time, so she and her business partner sashayed around the U.S. and Europe looking for cool clothes to sell in Cashiers. They found them, and clothing history was made.
You are just in time for a Sashay tradition celebrated every October: the year-end sale event. Clothing and accessories are marked down 60-80 percent. Perfect timing for holiday gift and party wear shopping.
