Reese Witherspoon to open 12South store
It’s official: Actress turned entrepreneur Reese Witherspoon is opening the first brick-and-mortar store for her new lifestyle brand Draper James in Nashville’s 12South neighborhood.
The store will be located on the first floor of the under construction Becker’s Corner development on 12th Avenue South between Summer Classics and 12 South Dental Studio, the building’s developers confirmed Thursday.
The Nashville location will be the first Draper James store in the country, which launched online in May.
Witherspoon’s brand is meant to honor her grandparents, Dorothea Draper and William James Witherspoon, and also to put the spotlight on Southern style. It pays homage to her Music City upbringing with products such as the “Vanderbilt tote,” the “Nashville shirt” and the “Belle Meade dress.”
“I created Draper James to honor my past and allow others to embrace the beauty, style and excitement that embodies what is happening in the South today,” Witherspoon said in a statement in May.
According to the Draper James website, the Nashville store is aiming for a fall opening.
The Becker’s Corner development includes 4,500 square feet of retail space and four apartments. The developer is The Shop Trust, a partnership between Andy Howell of C.A. Howell and Company and his brothers.

Reese Witherspoon named People magazine’s ‘best-dressed’ of 2015
Actress Reese Witherspoon was named People magazine’s best-dressed person of 2015 on Wednesday.
Witherspoon, the Oscar-winning star of Johnny Cash movie “Walk the Line,” headed a list that includes Hollywood stars Julianne Moore, Kate Hudson, and 15-year-old “Mad Men” actress Kiernan Shipka.
Witherspoon, 39, has clear ideas about what she likes (bright hues and clean lines) and what she doesn’t (crop tops and puffy dresses).
“I’d look like a mushroom,” she told People magazine of such styles, saying her height, at 5 ft 2 in (1.58 meters), is a fashion liability. “I always tell my stylist that it’s hard to dress short girls.”
Witherspoon ironically was one of the women leading an #AskHerMore campaign at the 2015 Oscars ceremony in which reporters were encouraged to ask actresses on the red carpet more about their work in movies than their style choices.
The actress is often a fashion favorite on red carpets, opting for a pale blue fitted off-the-shoulder Tom Ford gown to this year’s Oscars, a silver beaded strapless Calvin Klein dress for the Golden Globes and a one-shouldered Giorgio Armani gown for the SAG awards.
People magazine also named some of their best-dressed couples, including actress Gabrielle Union and Miami Heat basketball player husband Dwayne Wade, singer John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen, and “Magic Mike” actor Channing Tatum and his actress and dancer wife Jenna Dewan Tatum.
People magazine’s 30-page PeopleStyle special can be found in the issue on newsstands on Sept. 11, or online at www.people.com/bestdressed.
