We have a huge selection of women's dresses in Greenville, 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.

Whether you're looking for a top that makes a statement or you need a classic button-down for a subdued style, we've got your back. 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.
Need help measuring? Swing by Copper Penny and ask one of our friendly sales associates to help you out! While you're there, don't forget to check out our huge selection of women's tops in Greenville, SC.Contact Us

For many in the city, both young and old alike, the opening of Unity Park, a project decades in the making, was the biggest story in 2022. But that’s just the start of the story. With the park’s Thomas and Vivian Wong Honor Tower now on the horizon, it was a year when long-held plans finally came to fruition. The city also improved traffic, grappled with development in the village of West Greenville and made affordable housing a higher priority.
Greenville’s Unity Park opened over the summer to great fanfare, with more than 1,000 people greeting the park that had been initially proposed by members of Greenville’s Black community in the 1930s. The area has a controversial history, with parts of the area being used as a shooting range and a place for junked cars, despite being the only place in the city where Black children could legally play.
Now the park is loaded with new playground equipment, picnic areas, a splash pad and a community center, among its major amenities. Spread over 60 acres, the park will have one more piece to construct — a 125-foot observation tower that aims to be the capstone of the project.
The Thomas and Vivian A. Wong Honor Tower has been a controversial project, however, with a number of city residents questioning the need for the tower and the $11 million price tag for its construction. The tower was ultimately approved, using funds raised through the city’s hospitality tax (which can only be used to fund tourism-related projects) and private donations.
Notably, the tower’s construction will be aided by a $1 million donation from Thomas and Vivian A. Wong, longtime philanthropists and entrepreneurs in the community, after whom the tower will now be named.
The Greenville Drive and the city of Greenville celebrated two memorable events in early August by officially opening District 356 on the same day as Green Day, the annual event celebrating Greenville’s birthday.
The grand opening of the project, which had been in development since last year, is the result of a $2.5 million partnership between the Greenville Drive and the city. It is a space for outdoor entertainment that will continually feature street performers, pop-up shops, food trucks and live music during special events for the community held by Fluor Field. The district’s name refers to the lifetime batting average of Greenville native Shoeless Joe Jackson.
As more people move to Greenville, the supply of available housing is shrinking rapidly, causing prices to skyrocket. The city has made affordable housing a priority, and it has been approving a number of projects designed to stem the tide of higher housing costs in the city.
One of those projects, Woven, is a proposed 214-unit mixed-use development in the Village of West Greenville, with 20% of units potentially slated for affordable housing. But concerns from local residents over how these developments should come together remain a vexing issue for the city and developers alike.
In Greenville, it takes two full-time minimum wage jobs to be able to afford a studio apartment and almost three full-time minimum wage jobs to afford a two-bedroom unit. The city has offered tax incentives and is working to simplify the system for which builders can qualify for subsidies to build affordable housing.
Augusta Street was named one of the most dangerous thoroughfares for pedestrians, so city leaders made it a priority to address the problematic road with a road diet. A road diet reduces the number of lanes from four to three, making two travel lanes and one center left-turn lane. The goal, according to city leaders, was to slow down traffic and make travel safer.
Following feedback from residents and traffic analysts, the city now has its eyes on several other corridors for road diets: Grove Road, Cleveland Street and Elford Street. So far, the feedback has been positive from residents, who noted the slower traffic and increased ease in getting around.

Rapid growth continues to pose challenges for Greenville County’s leaders with one key issue remaining at the top of the list: inadequate funding for road maintenance.
After a contentious start to 2022, Greenville County Council members settled into a relatively collegial pattern for the remainder of the year and passed some significant measures with minimal discord.
A common theme emerged repeatedly throughout the year during council meetings and meetings of the planning and development committee and the county’s planning commission: many area roads can’t support new growth.
Prospective developments that would add new housing stock often met pushback from surrounding residents voicing concern such projects would overtax already congested roads and intersections. For this and other reasons, rezoning requests for those projects were many times denied by council.
Seeking to regain funding stripped away last year by a state Supreme Court decision, the council reinstated a $10 increase in the county’s road maintenance fee after the General Assembly clarified the law regarding such fees this past summer.
The road fee is again $25 and is expected to raise about $14 million annually for road upkeep, but county leaders acknowledge this funding is inadequate. Late in the year some council members began speculating the time is coming when county taxpayers may be asked to approve a local option sales tax for roads.
February saw the council’s Finance Committee shoot down a proposal by Greenville Triumph owner Joe Erwin for a new $38.6 million stadium for the soccer club to be constructed at BridgeWay Station in Mauldin.
The public-private partnership would have involved the county and city of Mauldin issuing bonds and ultimately owning the stadium with the team paying about $350,000 annually to lease the facility.
Erwin presented plans to the Finance Committee in January, but in February the committee voted down the proposal without discussion. That vote set off a heated argument in March as some members tried to bring the measure before the full council for reconsideration. A deadlocked vote of 6-6 left the Finance Committee’s denial in effect and sent the soccer club’s ownership back to the drawing board for alternate plans that have yet to emerge.
Over the summer council made several consequential decisions on how to spend the county’s remaining federal COVID relief funding under the American Rescue Plan Act.
In June, council approved one-time $3,500 bonuses for the county’s roughly 1,100 frontline workers. The council further approved a 6% cost-of-living increase for all employees in July in the face of growing inflation rates and concern the county’s pay scales were not as competitive as some neighboring jurisdictions.
In September, council voted to spend the remaining $13.5 million in ARPA funding toward reopening an emergency room in northern Greenville County. The approval directed county administration to negotiate with Prisma Health to reopen an emergency department at its North Greenville facility.
Prisma had initially asked for $16 million to resuscitate the ER, but negotiations between the two parties still have not been finalized as 2022 draws to a close.
In a welcome sign of agreement, County Council moved forward on two separate fronts to ensure parts of the county will be protected from development.
Following up on its creation of a new agricultural preservation district zoning category last year, council in May approved the first of what is expected to be a growing number of properties seeking that zoning protection.
In November, council gave final approval authorizing the county’s Historic and Natural Resources Trust to award a $400,000 grant that would help expand Paris Mountain State Park by as much as 17% The grant would help purchase the Shiloh ridge property, which would be combined with other nearby properties and eventually be given to the state park service.

I have lived in Greenville since I was 5 years old, and Christmas has always been a special time in the city. This year, I’m sharing some of my family’s favorite Greenville holiday events and Christmas traditions that we never miss.
I’m just sharing a few of my favorite events here, but if you’re looking for more ways to spend time with your family this holiday season, check out my team’s holiday guide. Whether you’re looking for a Christmas Tree Farm, a Christmas Parade, or a New Years Eve Party, the Hamilton & Co. Holiday Guide has you covered with over 70 Greenville Holiday Events!
The Festival of Trees has been a Greenville Christmas tradition since I was a kid, and I always enjoy sharing it with my family. Every year, dozens of Christmas trees can be found at three Greenville hotels – Courtyard Marriott Downtown, Embassy Suites by Hilton (Riverplace), and Hyatt Regency Greenville. Each tree is decorated by a different company or organization, and all proceeds this year support the St. Francis Foundation’s purchase of a second mammography coach.
I love touring the trees each year with my family, and my kids love picking their favorite among the many creatively decorated trees on display. This is a great free, family-friendly event and a wonderful Christmas tradition!
As a BJU graduate with children currently enrolled at multiple grade levels, the Bob Jones Christmas celebration is a can’t miss event. My real estate team Hamilton & Company was also a corporate sponsor of the event this year. In addition to a tree-lighting ceremony, this free event includes choral performances, a Christmas Village and Alumni Market, Christmas storytelling and cookie decorating, and so much more. I have kids ages 10-20, and each one of them can find an activity to enjoy at this event.
Unfortunately Bob Jones’ Tree Lighting has already happened this year, but keep it in mind for next year! This is an annual event and it gets bigger and better with each passing year!
A Greenville favorite as well as a personal one, Greenville’s Ice on Main is a must-see this holiday season. The skating rink is located in the heart of downtown Greenville right in front of the Courtyard Marriott. Hours of operation vary, but the rink is typically open 7 days a week from about 2pm-10pm so there’s lots of flexibility! Tickets are reasonably priced at $8 for children and $10 for adults for an hour of skating.
Ice on Main is a Hamilton family favorite for sure; we hit the rink at least once every year and it’s always a lot of fun. Even if ice skating isn’t your thing, be sure to walk past the rink! In its prominent location on Main Street, Ice on Main definitely makes downtown Greenville feel like Christmas every year.
Our family gets our Christmas tree from Boyd Mountain Farm every year and are always impressed with the service and beautiful trees! Boyd Farm has been owned and operated by the Boyd family for over 100 years, and the family began planting Christmas trees in 1984. Some of the trees on their farm are over 25 years old! Looking for a weekend getaway? The farm also features a handful of beautifully restored log cabins which are available to rent.
Boyd Mountain’s “Choose N Cut” at the farm is closed for the season, but the farm’s retail location (1373 Dellwood Road, Waynesville, NC) is still open 7 days a week and I’ve been told it still has lots of beautiful trees to choose from! You can check out their Facebook page for more updates.
Are you looking for a unique light show? Then head to Pelzer for the Pelzer Light People’s annual performance! This group has been spreading Christmas joy for over 30 years and are a family favorite.
The Pelzer Light People dress up in elaborate light suits and stand outside the Pelzer Gym every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 7pm-9pm waving at passing cars, handing out candy, and spreading Christmas cheer. The group also visits shut-ins and will be attending tree lightings and parades in the Anderson area. Check out their Facebook group for a full 2022 schedule.
Whether or not you’re a hockey fan, attending a Swamp Rabbits game is a Greeville bucket list item. If you’re looking to make the ice hockey experience especially memorable for your kids, consider going to the Teddy Bear Toss Match on December 10th!
Bring new or gently-used stuffed animals with you, and when the Rabbits score their first goal of the game, join the rest of the crowd in throwing your stuffed animals onto the ice! All the stuffed animals will be donated to local children in need. If you are looking for a fun and engaging way to teach young children about giving this season, I definitely recommend this game!
Finally, this isn’t a Greenville-specific tradition, but one my family loves nonetheless. Every Christmas Eve, our family enjoys dinner at Waffle House. It’s a great way to spend time together as a family during a busy season without the hassle of putting together a large meal.
Don’t forget, you can access my real estate team’s complete guide to the holidays HERE. This article combines new, exciting Greenville events with some of my team’s favorite long-standing traditions to bring you a complete guide to enjoying the Christmas season in the Upstate.

GREENVILLE, S.C. —
A new restaurant is set to move into Haywood Mall in Greenville, South Carolina, next year.
Texas de Brazil Churrascaria is touted as the world's largest family-owned and operated Brazilian steakhouse brand.
Texas de Brazil says it is famous for its time-honored tradition of churrasco cooking combined with generous southern hospitality and superior service.
The menu embraces a time-honored tradition of cooking meat over an open flame, just like the gauchos, or Brazilian cowboys of Southern Brazil.
"Haywood Mall is a major shopping and entertainment destination for so many in the region, and we are honored to open our doors to the community and visitors alike," Salim Asrawi, President of Texas de Brazil, said in a statement. "We can't wait to start sharing our Brazilian fare and having guests make their best memories with us while enjoying a high-quality dining experience."
"The highlights of this Brazilian steakhouse dining experience are the continuous servings of fire-roasted meats and unlimited plates from the chef-crafted salad area," a news release said. "The concept comes to life through the illustrious red and green cards, which guests use to indicate when they'd like to sample more cuts of meat, or when they need to take a break. The dining experience is also enhanced by the extensive award-winning wine list, rich in South American varietals."
You can sign up for the Texas de Brazil e-club to stay informed of the opening and then start receiving special promotions and exclusive offers to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and much more.
