The Avenue’s charming storefront in River Oaks
The Avenue Houston style blogger Lyndsey Zorich first launched The Avenue as an e-commerce site specializing in capsule collections. A brick-and-mortar (in the form of an enchanting jewel box of a house) now complements the online destination, yet we’re still hooked to Zorich’s digital gift guides and curated lookbooks. For presents, you can shop by recipient, occasion or price. 3209 Westheimer Road, 832.888.6623, onlyontheavenue.com
