What are your favorite stores for preppy/nautical clothing?

I like the Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Brooks Brothers outlets for good basic pieces, but I feel like every time I go in they just have the same things. I also like Talbots for more individual style pieces like blouses, but what other stores have this style of clothing that I'm just not looking in? Nothing too expensive please.

Re: What are your favorite stores for preppy/nautical clothi

Ive gotten some great stuff at Old Navy and even Target along those lines. Sometimes Gap, Sometimes JCrew, Sometimes even Lands End. I am having a big of an "identity crisis". Part of me wants to be a nice normal looking adult, that looks the part of a wedding vendor. The rest of me is clinging with serious desperation to the punky artsyfartsy butch kid I was and had a job that allowed me to continue to be.

I sign up for the mailing lists of J crew and Lands' End Canvas so I hear about the sales...then I click through via fatwallet.com which offers a % of cash back. It ends of being cheap like originally $250 J crew dresses for $35. I also love that it is $6 to get items monogrammed at lands' end canvas.

Shabby Apple has some cute nautical stuff - they're online only, but they've got a good return policy.

I can't walk into a Lilly Pulitzer without feeling like I've been transported to Nantucket. I love her dresses, though admittedly I shop the clearance rack.

I shop at Esprit every season for casual & young-looking clothes. Their inventory is constantly changing, so I can always find something new there.

Vineyard Vines is a typically New England nautical, preppy brand. Love their flip flops!
