We have a huge selection of women's dresses in Fountain Inn, SC, from stylistic sheath dresses to drop-waist styles that will make your girlfriends jealous.
These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.Shop Now
Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.Shop Now
A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.Shop Now
Once you know the kind of waist that fits your body type, it's time to find your shape. A few of our most popular dress shapes include:
Unless you're feeling extra sassy, chances are you're wearing a top at this very moment. Tops are garments that cover the top half of your body. At Copper Penny, we have an endless selection of tops in a wide range of styles - from basic tees to blouses and everything in between.

We only carry the most popular tops from the best brands and designers around the world.
Sometimes called broadcloth tops, poplins have classic characteristics and are often woven with an over/under weave. This kind of weave gives more substance to your top while also giving you room to breathe. Poplin shirts are typically soft and smooth, and are great for everyday business attire, some formal occasions, and for certain ceremonies. Sweet and feminine, our Bruna poplin eyelet bib top features ruffles at the sleeves and an eyelet lace yoke at the front. Pair your poplin with your favorite pair of shorts or jeans for a contemporary, relaxed look.Shop Now
Great for wearing solo or layered over a camisole or tank top, wrap tops are lightweight, versatile, and great for many different occasions. Wrap tops go well with jeans, maxi dresses, and high-waisted jeans or trousers. Our V-Neck Wrap SLV Top by Jayden is uber-popular at Copper Penny and the perfect choice for dressing down or dressing up. The choice is yours!Shop Now
For a dose of feminine fashion, be sure you add an off-the-shoulder top to your everyday wardrobe. A casual, sexy choice, off-the-shoulder tops have unique necklines that cut across your upper arms and chest, leaving your shoulders bare. The result is a flirty flash of skin, which elongates your neck and gives a relaxed, "daytime casual" look. Our Nola off-the-shoulder top pairs perfectly with shorts or even a flowy skirt and is hand-woven in Spain using Jacquard fabric.Shop Now
Who doesn't love a good tank top?! Tank tops are lightweight, versatile, and equally great for lounging in the yard or running errands on weekends. Tank tops lend an air of simplicity to your outfit and can be styled in endless ways. Take our Velvet Heart Victory Tank, for instance. This tank is a refreshing update on our classic sleeveless tank top, complete with fray details and a scoop neck. Throw in the fact that it's machine washable, and you have a wardrobe winner.Shop Now
When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements. For most women's tops, the best areas to focus on are your hips, waist, and chest.

Fountain Inn, a cute little town just 25 minutes south of Greenville, has an awesome, free splash pad. The town is small but growing and building up their Main Street so the splash pad is accompanied by shops, restaurants, and farmers market along Main Street in Fountain Inn, SC. Here’s everything you need to know about the splash pad, plus what to do when you’re in the area.
Splash pads are fantastic because kids of any age can enjoy the water without fear of swimming and all you need is a bathing suit and towel. All the splash pads in the Greenville area are free, as is this one, so it costs you nothing to come and let your kids cool off in the summer heat.
The Fountain Inn splash pad is right on Main Street so you can go check out the area restaurants and spend some time there. Area restaurants include Growler Haus, Cucina 100, and JPeters. Also, check out Gio’s Pastry Shop for amazing Italian pastries.
The farmers market is across the street and during the summer, Fountain Inn hosts Friday night live music in that same space. There are events all year round that really provide families with a wonderful small-town experience.
Also in Fountain Inn, you’ll find the Emmanuel Sullivan Sports Complex which is home to a fun, shaded playground with a ground-level trampoline. It takes just a couple of minutes to drive from Main Street to the park, where there is plenty of parking available.
Don’t miss Fountain Inn’s great parks.
The splash pad is right behind a beautiful arbor with plenty of benches for seating. One big positive about this splash pad is the shade. No other splash pad in Greenville has shade, so while the kids are running around in the water, us parents are sweating it out in the hot sun. The space has seating areas that has umbrellas for shade.
The splash pad originally opened in 2019. A group called Leadership Golden Strip, which is a collaboration between Simpsonville, Mauldin, and Fountain Inn chambers of commerce, spearheaded the fundraising efforts and the City of Fountain Inn and the Chamber of Commerce also added assistance. The teams raised $125,000 for the installation of the splash pad (now you know why not every town has one – it’s not cheap).
Greenville Water donated $25,000 to the effort. They also had a local artist do a mural on the far side of the splash pad.
The Fountain Inn splash pad is open daily. If the water isn’t on, there is a small tower on one end of the splash pad where a button can be pressed. The water will then turn on for five minutes. Just press it again to keep the water on. This is such a smart way to save water when the splash pad isn’t in use.
Public restrooms are available at the Fountain Inn Welcome Center (102 Depot Street).
Parking is available right behind the splash pad as well as directly on Main Street.
The splash pad will light up at night, too, for an extra cool ambiance.
Per the City of Fountain Inn, the following are rules and regulations for use of the splash pad:
1. All persons using the splash pad do so at their own risk. This is an unsupervised facility. 2. Water shoes are recommended.3. All children under (12) must have adult supervision at all times. Children under 6 years old must be within arm’s reach of an adult while on the splash pad.4. Clothing/swimsuits are required. Children in diapers must wear swim diapers.5. All participants must conduct themselves in a courteous, safe, and family-oriented manner.6. Water in the splash pad is not to be used for drinking.7. No running or rough play. 8.

No Bicycles, skateboards, skates, or rollerblades are allowed.12. No glass containers are allowed.13.

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. —
Some scary moments during a Christmas carriage ride in Fountain Inn, South Carolina, when the carriage came apart, and the horse ran away.
The incident was caught on camera, and you can watch it above.
This happened Thursday night. The carriage rides are part of the Christmas in Our Town event.
The video shows the carriage falling apart during a ride, and the horse run away with some of the carriage still attached at the intersection of Trade Street and Main Street.
Kennedy Szymanski is a hairstylist at a nearby salon.
"I was doing one of my client’s hair, and we just heard a loud crash," Szymanski said. "We just thought it was a car wreck. We looked out the window and we saw the horse taking off down Main Street and a lady following behind. That’s not something you’d see out of a Hallmark movie, but it’s something to add to it, I guess.”
Dreze Shell is the owner of Uptown Barbershop along Main Street.
“This ain’t the wild wild west now," Shell said, jokingly. "So, all of a sudden, a flash went by the window. We’re trying to figure out what’s going on. All you saw was a buggy and a horse, and the horse just took off. The buggy was sitting in the street. Poor little horse. I’ve been here over 12 years, and this is the first time a horse has ever got away in Fountain Inn.”
City of Fountain Inn
Carriage falls apart during ride
The person who shared the video said the horse was caught.
The folks who were in the carriage are able to get out and appear to be uninjured.
The rides offer folks a tour of downtown Fountain Inn during the holiday season.
The city of Fountain Inn told WYFF News 4 the following:
"The horse is happy and well…just got spooked a bit. There were no injuries or property damage reported.
"We took a little time last night after the incident to double-check all carriages to make sure this was an isolated incident and we’re convinced that it was. We will also do a thorough inspection of all carriages again today.
"The most important part of any event in Fountain Inn is safety and we take every step possible to mitigate any risk of injury while still providing a fun, family friendly experience. However, as with anything, unforeseen incidents can happen. This was the case last night.
"We will spend more time today and in the coming days trying to understand exactly what happened and why. However, at this time we are convinced it was an isolated incident that thankfully resulted in no injuries to the horse or anyone involved."

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Over the past two years the city of Fountain Inn has had at least two dozen groundbreaking’s and ribbon-cutting’s, and the latest one is happening at a spot which hasn’t had visitors in years.
At the site of the Ellison Flour Mill, things are coming together, such as a brewery, several restaurants and a greenspace.
Developers and co-owners, Bryan Beal and Nate Tomforde, gathered for the groundbreaking on Tuesday, February 28. They say they were drawn to the historic location for the opportunity to take something old and make it new again.
“This land is on the historical register of South Carolina so it’s a historical landmark so everything we do is going to have to adhere to those standards,” said Beal.
There are three existing buildings on the site, which previously served as a flour mill, auction house and vehicle repair shop. The developers plan to restore all three while preserving the buildings’ history and repurposing as much of the original material as possible.
The former three-story mill building will house a new brewery concept from Tomforde, who also owns Southernside Brewing Co. and Double Stamp Brewing.
“There’s not kind of a local gathering spot here and so being able to put that together with an old historic building, it’s just a special thing,” said Tomforde. “Our city council and I have a vision of making downtown Fountain Inn one of the best small downtown’s in the Upstate.”
The brewing equipment will be installed on the ground level, along with cold storage, a bar area and seating on the main level. The second floor will be used for additional seating and special events. The bar will feature about 15 taps, with a wide selection of house-brewed beers, as well as wine and cocktails.
The middle building will be a common area with indoor seating and access to the outdoor greenspace, which will include even more seating and an outdoor screen for movies, sporting events and live music.
The mill equipment will be refurbished and put on display at the front of the building, to pay tribute to Fountain Inn’s textile history.
Community members are also excited about this site being restored as an entertainment area.
“And we are super excited to see such a great venue come here. It’s going to be awesome,” said Stacy Jacobs. “Sometime this spring will be able to start construction this spring, and we can hopefully be open between now and the end of the year.”
The former repair shop building, on the far side of the property, will become a food hall with multiple local restaurant tenants, which are yet to be announced.
“It is an honor to bring this community gathering space to downtown Fountain Inn,” says Beal in a release. “We are incredibly grateful to the City, the Chamber, and all of the local leaders who are helping make it possible. We are thankful for the support and partnerships that got us to this point. We can’t wait to see our vision for The Mill at Fountain Inn come to life.”
The brewery will likely be the first to open, with the full development projected to open by early 2024.

I was first introduced to Cedar Falls Park by Deirdre at JDaniel4’s Mom. Deirdre and I are friends, and she is also a local blogger. She blogged about her visit to Cedar Falls Park during the 2013 Greenville Park Hop. I could tell that she and J Daniel had a lot of fun during their visit, and I decided that my family would need to check the park out ourselves.
After our visit my husband and I agreed that Cedar Falls Park is a local secret. The playground is imaginative and great for getting kids active. But the best part about Cedar Falls Park is the paved path (yay for strollers!) that leads to a beautiful wooded area where the Reedy River rolls over waterfalls and wildlife abounds.
Cedar Falls Park doubles as not just a recreational spot but also as an historic area. The site originated as a Cherokee hunting ground and transportation hub across the Reedy River. Later in the 1800s, a dam was built to power several mills. In the 1900s, a larger dam generated electric power for the Fork Shoals Mill. A more complete history of the Cedar Falls is located on a park sign on the trail.
On the trail, you will also find a sign explaining the Cherokee history of the site as well as a sign about the environmental aspects of the Reedy River which includes a chart of wildlife in the area.
The 90+ acres at Cedar Falls Park contains so much:
My kids really enjoyed the play area located at the first entrance of the park. The playground based on fairy tales, included a bean stalk ladder, rock wall, small cave window, and large fun climbing structures. As a mom of a very brave toddler, I was glad to see that even the larger playground wasn’t terribly high (not that I would have wanted her to fall off it).
The playground designed for smaller kids was a little larger than other local options. I liked how it was still challenging and fun for even my 5 year-old (though he was fascinated with the larger structure on the other side).
The playground did not have a fence and both levels of playgrounds were connected. Since the playground was beside the parking lot, you did have to watch small kids closely to make sure they didn’t wander off.
The walk to Cedar Falls was not difficult. Our kids (2 and 5) complained a little and we ended up toting the toddler, but we made it there and back without too much trouble. We did not bring a stroller, but the path was completely paved down to the falls.
We noticed a lot of people playing in the water, but we did not due to it being part of the Reedy River. Parents will want to know that this portion of the Reedy River has the same toxic level warning signs as you will find near the Reedy River at Falls Park.
I wore flip flops and the kids wore shorts on our visit. I would recommend tennis shoes and long pants as you will want to explore off of the path once you reach the falls. Don’t forget plenty of water and snacks too. Basically dress and pack for a hike.
The area was beautiful and we noticed lots of interesting insects and birds.
Even though the park was a little outside the normal area we travel for park visits, I’m sure that we will visit again. The kids really enjoyed their time playing at the park, and word is that Cedar Falls Park is a must-see spot in Greenville in the fall.
Cedar Falls Park is open daily from 9 am – dusk.
