We got word late last night that South Windermere boutique I Heart is closing on Friday. Charleston native Kate Pittard opened the original location in Avondale in 2006, and it was one of West Ashley’s first independent women’s boutiques. A few years later they moved to Windermere, but continued to offer unique, stylish apparel in an effort to break Charleston’s pearls-and-Croakies mold.

Pittard is moving to Philadelphia, where her husband will be attending Wharton business school at the University of Pennsylvania.

Right now, Tibi is 40 percent off, Judith March and Alice and Trixie are 30 percent off, and Amanda Uprichard is 20 percent off. The sale will change daily. Stop by 38 Windermere Blvd. to take advantage of the final sale. Call (843) 225-2722 for more details.
