Locally Owned Boutiques

From August, 2023 CH2 Magazine

For more than 65 years, locals and visitors have known Coligny as Hilton Head Island’s downtown—nothing less than the place to shop, dine or simply spend a day browsing through beachfront stores that offer a dizzying array of retail therapy options.
But for some locals and visitors, it’s not just a place to shop. It’s a place to curate a style and fashion sensibility all your own. And behind this fashion-forward fame that Coligny has acquired, you’ll find the women holding the reins. And what’s just as fascinating about the fabulous fashions each brings to their respective store is how each has found the perfect home at Coligny.
Lucille Tanner took over at Bennali’s Coastal Wear in 2020, following years of success thanks to its beach-friendly vibe and dazzling dresses, blouses, accessories and more that embody the island’s laid-back refinement.
“Being part of the family in the plaza and getting to know everyone has been great,” she said. “All the businesses in here communicate with one another and are so supportive.”
It’s a tight-knit family that engenders a strong following among shoppers. For 16 years, Island Girl has given the entire family a place where they can find that perfect look. So, when the opportunity presented itself to become a larger part of the family, Cheryl Klippel jumped at the chance.
“You can’t ask for a better environment than Coligny, so we knew right away we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to expand and allow for more offerings,” she said.
Brody Kenneweg is another of Coligny’s fashionistas who has expanded her own empire in Coligny, moving her store Haskins & Co. into a larger space as soon as the opportunity presented itself. At her new space right by the beach, her unique array of all-occasion fashions for women of all ages enjoys an even bigger spotlight.
“I don’t think I would have a store if I couldn’t be in Coligny,” she said. “Not only do we have that draw of people who come back year after year, but I’ve been able to develop real friendships with my customers.”
Kim Mischik shares that same love of customers, and those customers happily reciprocate, making Fresh Produce a must-shop for women seeking fresh new looks. “We have such a great local following, plus I feel like everybody visits Coligny,” she said. “We get customers in from all over the world.”
