Everything in life is made in pairs.  Shoes, gloves, and socks are just a few of the many items that exist as a set of two.  A pair, in actuality, is defined as a set of two things used together or regarded as a unit.  

Food and fashion often co-exist together as a pair even though we often skim over that tandem without giving it much thought….but think about it.  When you are going out with the girls for dinner, is your outfit not dictated by where you are noshing?  If you are on a first date feasting at somewhere intimate and fancy, are you not going to pull together a tailored look to fit the location?

Regardless of where you are going or who you are going with, e.Allen has the perfect and complete look broken down for you so that you are fashion ready for some amazing food.  Our e.TEAM has the benefit of experiencing all three of our locations on a routine basis.  We are, of course, aware of the inventory ready and waiting for you in The Gulch, Franklin and Murfreesboro; however, it is also safe to say we know where to grab a bite in close proximity as well!

MURFREESBORO – Just Love Coffee has opened literally right next door to e.Allen.  The aroma of freshly brewed coffee mixed with Belgian waffles and savory breakfast options make it the perfect stop to starting off your day.  Looking great & waking up in style is an easy tandem in one of e.Allen’s casual, overall looks.  Perhaps a Chaser tee front tucked into some AGOLDE denim cut offs would be a good base?  Throw on some oversized QUAY shades and some Dolce Vita tennies and call it a day…or at least a solid start to one!

FRANKLIN – The McEwen area is the perfect spot for lunch and the perfect place to pop in and shop as well!  Our Franklin store is located just outside the hustle and bustle of the Brentwood area, making it a great stop for eating and trying on our freshest arrivals.  A CP Shades linen dress option paired with woven espadrilles and a HEARNE accessory will have you fashion-ready for your lunch date at Bricktop’s.  The Little Gem and architecturally-exquisite Chopped Salad are sure to satisfy your midday palate!

GULCH – The litany of places to shop and eat in Nashville are obviously endless.  Thankfully, our prime e.Allen location in The Gulch is in the heart of the culinary giant our town has become nationally known for.  A fabulous linen blazer and short set from French Connection (such as the amazing marigold one our founder, Elizabeth Allen, sported at the recent Caroline Herrera fashion show) would be acceptable and envied literally anywhere!  Paired with one of Chinese Laundry’s shoe options and some dainty layered necklaces, this look is so chic. Pop by Saint Anejo for a drink or set aside some time at Marsh House for a delectable dinner…either option will welcome your keen ensemble with open arms!
