In addition to featuring designer labels that would make Tim Gunn blush, Plain Ivey Jane features up-and-coming local brands. And because this boutique strives to be active in the community, it also moonlights as an art gallery and event space.There is nothing Plain Jane about Austin's overstock boutique Plain Ivey Jane. Located in the hip 2nd Street District, this unique women's apparel store speaks straight to the fashionista's heart: "TJ Maxx prices in a Nordstrom atmosphere," she whispers softly in your ear. Poke around the industrial-meets-kitsch shop and you'll find trendy labels by fashion royalty such as Helmut Lang, Marc Jacobs, Nicole Miller and Vera Wang for a fraction of the price. So how are we so lucky to get our snazzy little hands on designer duds for cheap? Thank owner Sarah Reeves who came up with the idea of offering overstock and last season couture for the fashion-conscious Austinite. Plain Ivey Jane is so well loved by the locals that Austin 360 named it "Best New Retailer" in 2010.
Plain Ivey Jane features over 70 different brand names in a variety of sizes. In addition to featuring designer labels that would make Tim Gunn blush, Reeves strives to feature up-and-coming local brands that are hitting the scene. And because Plain Ivey Jane strives to be active in the community, the boutique also moonlights as an art gallery and event space. Don't be surprised if you stroll up to discover a swank Austin Fashion Week party raising the roof.
