Nana Looking Good in Mt. Pleasant

After the huge success of the Mt. Pleasant Temporium – I’m happy to share photos showing that the new tenant, Nana, is looking equally awesome. Nana is located at 3068 Mount Pleasant St. NW (formerly of U St, NW). Their Web site says:

“The shop has evolved over the years (and Jackie and her “boyfriend” may have evolved from a U Street-out-and-about-couple to a married-with-two-kids-city-residing family) but the mission to share unique, finely crafted, beautiful and attainable styles in a genuine, friendly, neighborhood shop will always stay the same.”

I think it’s safe to say this is an awesome addition to Mt. Pleasant.

Now if they just had a new coffee shop

Lots more photos after the jump.

    Nana, you look marvelous. Thanks for being here. Making plans.

  • Neighbor

    Could anyone tell me what the prices are like here? What a shirt or dress goes for? Thanks in advance.

      Regular boutique prices (read: expensive). At the U St location there was a small section at the back of the shop with lower priced, resale items. Don’t know if the new store has that as well.

    Great addition to the neighborhood. I hope everyone stops by and checks it out. The owner is incredibly nice.

    We are happy to have you, Nana!

    Really? I was disappointed because –
    a) there is a difference between “vintage” and “consignment”
    b) if you want consignment, you can cross the street to Frugalista for waaaaay better prices
    c) I don’t want to spend $80 on a dress that looks like my sister put it together from scraps of fabric on her sewing machine.
    Wow, I’m grumpy today.

    Stopped in the store this weekend and it looks great! I love nana’s selection of clothes – they are classy, unique, and versatile. I get tons of compliments on the pieces I buy here. SO happy to have this store in Mt. Pleasant now!!

    I’m so excited about Nana moving to my ‘hood! They carry cute, unique clothes (and bags and jewelry). It’s not cheap but that’s life with a small, non-chain clothing business, I think. I really hope they do well in this new location.

    Store looks great, just not sure what they offer that would stop me from going to say Banana Republic?

    Love Jackie! Love Nana! So glad they’ve finally re-opened.

    Some things can be rather spendy ($70 t-shirt?), but they have lovely, unique clothes that are beautiful and well made. Plus, when they’re in stock, their IT! jeans are fantastic. I’d rather spend $150-200 on a more classic dress that will last me years, than a $30 piece of trendy poo from H&M. Nana also carries some eco-friendly and independent designers, which is cool. With shops like the Gap and Banana Republic it’s a lot easier to run into someone with the same outfit. Plus, Jackie is just really nice and fun.

    But if it’s not your thing, then at least I will have better luck finding something in my size! :)

    Really? I stopped by and while some of the clothes were ok, they sure were not worth $100+ I would rather go to anthropologie for that sort of prices and style. Things looks so “arts and crafty.” nothing special to me. But overall I think is a good addition to the neighborhood.
