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. If you're looking for the highest quality women's tops in Greenville, SC, you just hit the jackpot!
With that said, finding the right top for the right occasion is easier said than done. However, at Copper Penny, we make finding the right top fun. 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

Naked Pasta in the Village of West Greenville is a picturesque space.
The business functions as a grocery store where guests can take restaurant-quality plates home and finish the assembly there. Natural wines from small-scale producers and Oreno Hellenic Ladi olive oil adorn the entrance, along with refrigerators of pasta and sauces made in-house.
The shop is small – about 500 square feet. That’s about to change.
A wine and beer bar will be added. It will serve small plates so guests can have a glass of wine and a snack. With the changes, the store could nearly double in size. Although the soon-to-be grocery and wine bar may host a pasta or lasagna night, the goal is to stay true to its roots.
“We’ll do some pasta things, but kind of want to keep that where you can be creative at home and cook,” said owner Christina Barest. “By making this change, the store may also become a place guests can go before going out to dinner.”
Barest hopes to add a garage door to the storefront so the pasta shop can provide indoor-outdoor seating. She also wants to add to the grocery element by offering more take-and-bake options and fresh produce from local farmers.
Naked Pasta is located at 1286 Pendleton St., which neighbors Villa West Designs. Sarah O’Dell, owner of the interior design studio, owns the two properties.
O’Dell and her husband purchased her studio part of the building in 2019 and Naked Pasta’s property in 2022. At the time, the pasta purveyor was looking for a larger space.
“We’re neighbors of Naked Pasta’s and so I had heard that they were looking to move into a larger location,” O’Dell said. “I hated to see them go because they’ve been great neighbors.”
From there, discussions began about how to give Naked Pasta the space it needed to stay in the Village.
“We’re taking a lot of my business upstairs to the second floor,” O’Dell said. “[We’re] still keeping something on the first, but kind of forgoing some of the space that we initially had planned for, for my business for them.”
O’Dell is excited about the changes and has plans for the building to reflect an Old World-modern twist on an art deco design. Those plans are not set in stone, and structural changes are pending approval.

Not many people can say they got to fly an F-16 on a Tuesday morning during the work week, but that was the experience some enjoyed on Jan. 30 at the State House.
A simulator providing a virtual experience of being in the cockpit of one of the South Carolina-built fighter jets was in the atrium of the South Carolina State House on Tuesday as part of a ceremony commemorating the 50th anniversary of the F-16.
The simulator featured an exact mockup of an F-16 cockpit and allowed participants the chance to experience take-off, landing, maneuvers and even to participate in a “dogfight” and shoot down enemies, led by two guides.
The event was held in conjunction with S.C. Manufacturing Day at the State House, sponsored by the South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance.
Gov. Henry McMaster officiated, reading a proclamation he presented to officials from Lockheed Martin’s Greenville offices and declaring Jan. 30 “F-16 Fighting Falcon Day” in South Carolina.
State officials and members of the military were also present, including pilots who fly F-16s for the 169th Fighter Wing, known as the Swamp Foxes, based at McEntire Joint National Guard Base in Hopkins. About 80 F-16s are also based at Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter with the 20th Fighter Wing.
“The F-16 is a key piece of 21st century security, and by having them manufactured in Greenville we’re in the middle of security for the whole world,” McMaster said. “Lockheed Martin’s Greenville facility has a $100 million economic impact in South Carolina, and the company exemplifies everything that makes this state a great place to do business.”
The event was held to commemorate the F-16’s first flight on Jan. 20, 1974, which actually occurred accidentally during a high-speed taxi test at Edwards Air Force Base in California. The plane’s first official maiden flight took place on Feb. 2, 1974.
Lockheed Martin moved production of the F-16 to Greenville from Fort Worth, Texas, in 2019. The plant currently produces the F-16 Block 70, and is on track to deliver between 19 and 21 jets to Bahrain, Slovakia and Bulgaria this year, company officials said. The Greenville plant currently employs 1,700 people, 25% of them veterans.
“South Carolina is one of the few remaining epicenters for defense manufacturing, and in today’s international climate having a working production line and supply chain for defense is crucial,” said Trish Pagan, vice president of the F-16 production program for Lockheed. “We are thankful for the steadfast support Lockheed Martin has received supporting our growth in South Carolina. Greenville is a national security asset.”
About 3,100 F-16s are currently operating around the world, and since its beginning the jets have logged 13 million sorties and 19.5 million flight hours, according to Lockheed Martin statistics.
“At any moment day or night, there is a good chance an F-16 is in the air somewhere in the world,” Pagan said.
Currently seven Bulgarian F-16s are in various stages of production in Greenville, with the inaugural flight of the first Bulgarian F-16 Block 70 planned for later this year. The production line in Greenville currently has a backlog of 135 of the fighter jets for customers around the world. Bulgaria is the second European country to purchase the F-16 Block 70, after Slovakia. Slovakia’s first two F-16 Block 70 jets successfully completed their inaugural flights in September 2023 at Lockheed’s Greenville facility, and the jets were successfully delivered this month. F-16s built in Greenville have also been purchased by Bahrain.

For TALK Greenville
Jianna, a downtown restaurant known for its elevated Italian-inspired cuisine, featuring dishes from all regions of Italy, also offers a flavor-filled journey straight to the heart of Tuscany.
“The trips were first inspired by a friend who lives in Montalcino and who, like me, is extremely passionate about great food and wine,” says Michael Kramer, owner and chef at Jianna. “We thought we could share a unique food experience with others who feel the same way.”
Kramer said that the experiences during a trip last year included an exceptional winemaker dinner with a private chef. The culinary adventure is “a great way to get close to regional dishes and famous Florentine steaks,” he says. “We went truffle hunting and visited cathedrals and sights with our private tour guide – it was personal and one of the most memorable trips I’ve experienced.”
The next trip in Jianna’s travel series is set for Tuscany in April, with curated tours of Montalcino, Montepulciano, Florence and Pienza.
Expert-guided excursions grant insider access to Tuscany’s culinary gems. Here, every bite has a story. Visit the farms and sources of many artisanal treasures Tuscany is known for, such as olive oil, cheese, and prized Tuscan meats, like heirloom Cinta Senese pigs. A lineup of interactive classes includes pasta-making and cooking with truffles.
Wine tastings are an immersive experience that combines history, culture and art. Travelers explore vineyards, meet producers and taste some of the region's most revered wines at top wineries in Montalcino, the homeland of Brunello.
Highlighting seasonal Tuscan dishes, dining experiences are arranged at wineries, farms and some of Montepulciano's most highly-rated restaurants. At historic Osteria Porta di Bacco, a five-course feast celebrates regionally focused ingredients, and specialties like roasted pig and classic duck ragu with pasta, paired with locally produced wines curated by an on-site wine shop. At Antica Trattoria II Marzocco, savor Old World classics like rabbit terrine, beef tagliatelle and hand-rolled Pici pasta.
Your home base for this culinary adventure is Villa Benefizio, a luxury hotel situated within the hills of Tuscany. Surrounded by fragrant gardens, ancient olive groves and vineyards, the intimate villa features a Wellness Center with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool.
Beyond the pleasures of food and wine, there’s plenty of free time built-in to explore on your own, such as shopping excursions in Florence, spa treatments and a visit to a natural thermal bath.
“It’s a bucket list trip of a lifetime for many,” says Jianna General Manager and Managing Partner Andrea Ciavardini-Royko. “From food, wine and culture, it hits everything you need to experience the best of what Tuscany has to offer -- plus you get to drink some really good wine.”
Back in Greenville, Jianna connects diners with Tuscany's culinary traditions through special tasting events held throughout the year.
“The trip has created long-lasting bonds,” Ciavardini-Royko says. “Those who have traveled with us in the past regularly get together for a reunion.”
Look for winemaker’s dinners, wine-tasting workshops, and other culinary-focused events at Jianna that tap into the Tuscany travel series. For more info, visit jiannagreenville.com.
Join wine expert Andrea Ciavardini-Royko, General Manager and Managing Partner at Jianna, on an immersive culinary journey to Tuscany, April 20-27, 2024. This seven-day curated excursion includes exclusive tastings at notable wineries, elevated dining experiences, cooking workshops, spa treatments, private tours, and more. Space is limited.
