CHARLESTON, S.C. – Palmetto Moon, a Southern lifestyle retailer celebrating two decades of rapid growth, proudly announces its arrival in the Kentucky market with two new locations set to open in the Bluegrass State this spring. Palmetto Moon will unveil its first Kentucky store in Lexington on March 25th, followed by Lousiville on April 8th – marking the retailer’s 40th location across its growing Southeast footprint.

Palmetto Moon’s new Kentucky stores will be located at:

• Fayette Mall – 3401 Nicholasville Rd, Lexington, KY in Suite 820 (6,900 square feet)
• Matt St. Matthews – 5000 Shelbyville Rd, Louisville, KY in Suite 1725 (7,100 square feet)

Upon debut, Palmetto Moon will operate locations in seven states that include Kentucky, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Tennessee.

“It’s an honor to build on twenty years of incredible momentum as we open our doors to Kentucky,” says Palmetto Moon EVP, Chief Brand Officer Amber Dube. “We’ve seen firsthand how our brand resonates with customers here who shop our thoughtfully curated online storefront, and as a brand grounded in community, we’re especially thrilled to bring the authentic Palmetto Moon experience to life with our new locations in Lexington and Louisville.”

Palmetto Moon is known for its relentless focus on customer service and locally inspired shopping experience for all ages that celebrates the Southern lifestyle. Unlike mass merchants, the retailer hand-picks its showcase of top brands alongside emerging makers and gifts tailored to the community. Thoughtful store layouts incorporate bright and airy open floor plan designs, with stylized fitting rooms reminiscent of a cozy Southern front porch.

The new Lexington and Louisville locations will offer popular brands including YETI, Simply Southern, Bogg Bag, Hey Dude, Southern Marsh, Chubbies, Vineyard Vines and Local Boy Outfitters, as well as up-and-coming brands and Palmetto Moon’s exclusive products. In step with Palmetto Moon’s legacy as a Collegiate destination, both stores will feature custom University of Kentucky collegiate gear and apparel; the Louisville location will also represent University of Louisville. The retailer proudly partners with Kentucky makers such as Bourbon Barrel Foods, Doodles By Rebekah and Bluegrass Brothers.

“Lexington and Louisville are two vibrant Southern destinations with rich, yet distinct local character that perfectly reflects our homegrown brand,” says Palmetto Moon Chief Executive Officer John Thomas. “We can’t imagine a better introduction to the Bluegrass State as Palmetto Moon celebrates this tremendous growth milestone. From humble beginnings as a kiosk in Charleston, South Carolina, it’s a privilege to offer 40 brick-and mortar locations in seven states and counting.”

Extending a warm welcome to the Lexington and Louisville communities, Palmetto Moon will host a Grand Opening Celebration for each location on Saturday, March 25th and Saturday, April 8th, respectively. Highlights include grand prize drawings, giveaways, live music and more. Between festivities, guests can easily shop dedicated departments – Women’s, Men’s, Children’s, Home and Gift, Footwear, drinkware, coolers, and Collegiate as well as feature displays for trending brands and emerging products.
