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

GREER, S.C. —
The city of Greer is addressing the potential sale of Victor Gym and Park.
City council gave initial approval this week to sell the city-owned property to Meridian Property Purchaser.
The proposal still faces another vote by council before the deal can be finalized.
“The main reason for considering a sale of this property is to accommodate the demand for our recreational services. The growth Greer has experienced in recent years has outgrown the Victor Facilities,” City Administrator Andrew Merriman said. “The City is exploring options to create a new, multi-use sports and event facility to accommodate those needs. We are committed to doing our due diligence in finding a purchaser who will deliver a project that will provide the right mix of residential and commercial uses to support the vitality of our growing city.”
Here are the answers to some questions that are posted on the city's website:
Continued programming on this site is unsustainable. As a result of our growth and the demand for recreational services, our ability to serve those needs are limited given the size of the facilities at Victor Park. We have outgrown the space and need to expand to meet the recreational needs of our growing community.
With recent improvements to Greer Station through the CenterG project, making the property available for a residential or mixed-use project would continue the renovation and improvement of the central business district and expand the pedestrian-friendly nature of Greer Station. Also, part of the City’s Smart Growth strategy is to increase density in the central business district, which this would help accomplish.
Rebuilding on the site to accommodate our current and future needs would still require the removal of the ballfield and basketball courts to accommodate for the required parking.
Income from the sale of the property will fund infrastructure, be that in the form of utilities, pedestrian safety or capital facilities.
The City’s Recreation facilities, which currently include Country Club Road Park and Century Park for baseball and softball, as well as the Suber Road Complex, will be complemented by renovations at H.R. Turner Park that include a new ballfield and expanded amenities for both players and spectators. Turner Park is located on Virginia Ave., 1.4 miles from Victor Gym.
The City has maxed out the capacity of the current space at Victor Gym. Planning for a new sports and events center will allow the City to create a multi-use facility to meet the needs of current and future recreation and athletic programming.
The City of Greer intentionally negotiated a due diligence period for this project of  days in an attempt to create a smooth transition from the current facility to new, more modern facilities capable of handling the City’s growing needs. The goal is that there will be no interruption of services for those who take full advantage of the City of Greer’s recreation amenities.
Should timing make it necessary, alternative space will be made available to accommodate these valuable programs in the short term with the expectation of locating both in a new permanent setting in the future.
The City is working on options to relocate the outdoor courts to a convenient location in the Victor Community. Basketball courts for public use are currently available at Greentown Park, B.P. Edwards Park and Wards Creek Park. Those facilities, in addition to Victor Heights Park, Greer City Park and the Center for the Arts Park all offer quality play structures for young people.
The highest and best use of this property is for mixed use, residential, or commercial. Through the use of a development agreement, the City will be able to determine whether a prospective project meets the desired current and future use for the property.
While the City of Greer is taking steps to enter into an agreement to ultimately redevelop this property, until all due diligence is completed by the prospective purchaser, the City of Greer cannot be certain that this redevelopment will occur. Regardless of the outcome of this opportunity, the City of Greer remains committed to its plans to modernize and grow its recreational footprint to meet the needs of a growing City.
Greer CPW has invested heavily in improving downtown infrastructure over the past decade. The property’s access to Highway 101 provides ideal ingress/egress. The townhomes constructed on Park Ave. have been a welcome addition while having little impact to traffic and utilities in the area.
As with any development in Greer, a Traffic Impact Analysis (TIA) and environmental research will be conducted prior to any construction on the site. A TIA will identify peak use time and outline necessary road improvements to mitigate a projects impact.

GREER, S.C. —
Greer Golf Course in South Carolina is about to get $2 million worth of renovations.
The first phase of the construction will begin July 24.
Renovations will begin by converting the pool area into an outdoor event space.
The renovated space will be available to rent for private gatherings including parties, receptions, and tournament scoring.
The area will feature an outdoor bar with lounge furniture, food preparation space, and restrooms. These renovations are expected to take two months to complete.
Work will then move to the clubhouse, where planned renovations over a four-month span include a redesigned pro shop, additional seating in the dining room, a full-size bar in the dining room and cosmetic upgrades throughout to include flooring, paint and fixtures.
Golf cart storage will be relocated to the basement of the pro shop and additional ADA parking and building entrance enhancements completed.
“It’s been exciting to watch the progress at Greer Golf and to see the vision we had when the City purchased the facility in 2020 coming to reality,” said Mayor Rick Danner. “This is one more sign that the City of Greer is committed to providing first-rate parks and recreation offerings for our community.”
“The feedback we received after completing extensive work on the tees, fairways and greens was overwhelmingly positive,” said Ann Cunningham, Director of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism. “This next phase will take Greer Golf to the next level as the premier public golf facility in the state.”
Golf operations will not be interrupted during construction. The pro shop will remain open during the first phase of work and will be temporarily relocated to the event space once clubhouse work begins. Tee times may be scheduled online at www.greergolf.com.
The design was prepared by the SGA/Narmour Wright architecture firm and will be completed by general contractor P+F Construction.

GREER, S.C. (WSPA) – It’s almost that time of year, where we celebrate the red, white and blue. But one celebration in the upstate likes to start the Fourth of July festivities early.
The City of Greer is set to host it’s 15th annual Freedom Blast on Saturday at the City Park.
“Freedom Blast is totally different from your typical Fourth of July event, where you come out and celebrate the birth of our nation. We celebrate and honor the reasons for freedom,” Event Supervisor for the City of Greer, Robbie Davis said.
One of those reasons is the men and women who serve this nation.
“It’s our way and our community’s way to give back to the reasons for freedom and for those men and women who fought and served to provide us those freedoms. So, the city is really big on our veterans.”
By throwing a jammed packed four-hour celebration, “we’ll kick off with our sky divers and end with our world famous- we’ll say world famous firework show,” Davis said.
As well as everything in between, “Our Texas Roadhouse rib eating contest right into our live music,” Davis said. “On site we will also have mechanical rides for a nice cheap $5 dollars. So, we keep everything at our festival within a reasonable price for families and friends. Then we will have over 24 food venues.”
This year’s event is expected to draw in 20,000 people.
“We expect a huge crowd and each year it seems to keep getting bigger,” Davis said.
Those big crowds are also good for businesses like Abbotts Frozen Custard.
“Freedom Blast for Abbotts is huge, it’s always a big turnout, a lot of prep goes into it and it’s an all-hands-on deck kind of day,” Amanda Hopper, Abbots Frozen Custard owner, said. “It will be a huge day with lots and lots of people and lots of business for all of the businesses downtown.”
The City of Greer says there are some rules that people have to follow. No smoking, no pets and no drones.
Poinsett Street will be closed Saturday for the event. As for parking, the city said it will be tight but there is plenty of free downtown parking locations as well as side streets.

GREER — Jason Clark is not remorseful over the closing of his restaurant after a decade. Rather, the chef and owner of The Strip Club 104 in downtown Greer is taking time to appreciate the experiences he had and time to consider the experiences he still wants to have.
“They are kind of open ended,” Clark said of his plans right now. “My wife deserves a vacation.”
The Strip Club officially closed Feb. 24. While news of the closing hit some hard, Clark said he’s excited for a change. All the pieces have come together in a way that makes now the right time to close this chapter.
“It’s exciting,” Clark said. “I’m handing it to a perfectly capable person that is going to take it to the next generation.”
Rick Erwin Dining Group is planning to open a new restaurant in the space. The deal was sealed Feb. 28.
Michael Ivey, owner and CFO of Rick Erwin Dining Group, confirmed the information, but said the restaurant group’s team is not ready to release details yet.
(Editor’s note: Rick Erwin Dining Group announced March 15 it would open Rick Erwin’s Greer, which will follow the traditional steak and seafood model used in other locations.)
“The fact is that’s what you hope when you sell that house,” Clark said. “You hope the next owner is going to appreciate it as much as you do.”
Speculation abounds about why Clark closed The Strip Club.
The industry veteran isn’t much for speculation. Instead, he speaks about his restaurant with a respect but also a matter-of-factness. A restaurant, he said, “is a living, breathing thing.”
Clark knew from the day he opened the restaurant’s doors in 2011 that it wasn’t forever.
“The first thing that Joe Copeland at Greer State Bank taught me as my mentor, he said ‘Jason, you need to know how to get into business, you need to know how to change your business, and you need to know how to exit your business.’ I knew when I got into business, I got into it to be successful and have fun doing it, and eventually it was gonna be sold.”

Thank you to Trapped In The Upstate Escape Room for providing complimentary admission for the purpose of this review. All opinions are those of the writer.
An Escape Room is a place where solving puzzles will lead you to clues that will lead to another puzzle until you’ve solved the mystery that creates the theme for the room. There’s usually an attendant watching players through a security camera, to help give you clues if you get stuck. They want you to succeed and are there to gently guide you to the clues you need to continue on and keep the fun going if you become frustrated.
You’re not really trapped, locked, or otherwise restricted to the room. You can leave to use the restroom or for any reason. Just remember, the clock doesn’t stop and you’ll have teammates counting on your help. Escape rooms are the perfect date night, team-building activity for co-workers, and birthday celebration activities for those impossible-to-please teens & tweens! The rooms come in all different themes depending on the venue.
At Trapped In The Upstate, Greer’s only escape room, they currently have six themes, including Saving Santa, The Legend of Lizzie, Asylum, Master Illusionist’s Parlor, and VooDoo Shack. Each room had a varying difficulty level, with most of the rooms lasting 60 minutes.
“Archeologist Robert Robertson ventured into a Voodoo Shack and was never seen again. His family believes that he has been cursed and his soul is being held by supernatural forces. Can you find Robert’s Relic and set his soul free…or is it too late?” -Trapped In The Upstate
I feel like I have to tread carefully, so as to not give anything away that would spoil for readers that go (and you totally should).
Waking up to the Roberts Relic Escape Room, sets the tone for what you are about to experience. The reclaimed wood panels and flickering gas lamps begin to transport you to the bayou and some undisclosed location where no one would hear your screams. Why are you even there? Budget Basement travel agent? Who knows? That’s not important anymore. Now you just have to figure out how you’re getting back home.
Solving the mystery of what happened to “Uncle Robert” is your only goal. That and doing it in 60 minutes or less, or before that voodoo priestess comes back to claim another victim.
This room was a lot of fun, and I suggest you bring at least two other adults with you. The more eyeballs on things the better.
Without giving anything away, I can offer you these tips for your time in the rooms.
The room is not super scary, but young children won’t be able to help solve the puzzles and may become a hindrance to others trying to solve the room. This is best suited for tween-age and older players. The Magician’s Parlor will be better suited for families and elementary-aged children.
You can book your visit to these six rooms:
