J.McLaughlin—the All-American preppy brand that started on Manhattan's Upper East Side, but feels straight of the Hamptons—is getting ready to open its second Twin Cities store this weekend in Wayzata. And if you've been a bit underwhelmed by the Galleria location, give Wayzata a go—this is a brand that thrives in a neighborhood—especially one on the water.
Outside of a shopping center, J.McLaughlin has more flexibility to design its space, and the Wayzata store feels much more beachy and modern with white washed wood beams, a striking checked wall, and water skis as decor. Check out the cashmere ponchos and vegan leather vests! J.McLaughlin features menswear as well. The store opens Friday at 743 Lake Street.
