Mixing classic and iconic styles with fashion savvy trends, Duchess M features women’s favorite apparel and accessory brands in the heart of Old Town. The boutique was opened in October 2014 by Susie Freimanis and her mother Mary Pollard, for whom the shop was named. They wanted to create and build a family business in Alexandria that Susie’s children could grow up with and feel a strong sense of their community.
Duchess M features a variety of beautiful items from a designer collection of Nanette Lepore, Trina Turk and Ted Baker, to 7 for All Mankind denim and a table filled with luxury fur scarves by Linda Richards. The store prides itself in carrying familiar brands, but items that you won’t necessarily see somewhere else.
