3rd restaurant opens in Mount Pleasant center this year; Charleston clothing shop to open | Business

A Florida-based restaurant chain now offers two locations in the Charleston area and is the third new dining venue to set up shop in a Mount Pleasant shopping center this year. 

Maple Street Biscuit Co. opened Tuesday at 996 Queensborough Blvd. in the Publix-anchored Queensborough Shopping Center near U.S. Highway 17 and Anna Knapp Boulevard. It follows Paisano’s Pizza Grill, which opened earlier this year, and Groucho’s Deli, which opened in the fall.

Maple Street’s specialties include freshly made biscuits, never-frozen chicken and newly ground beans every day for fresh coffee. Full-plate offerings are on the menu as well.

Owned by Sandy Powers, it’s open 7 a.m.-2 p.m. each day. Richard Starling will oversee the new location.



Record holiday spending projected from more disposable income due to pandemic

Maple Street previously opened is at 1739 Maybank Highway in the Harris Teeter-anchored James Island Center.

Jacksonville-based Maple Street has 41 restaurants in seven Southern states, including two Upstate locations in Simpsonville and Greenville.



Portal on St. Philip St.

Tina Heath-Schuttenberg will open a new vintage clothing shop called Portal at 189 St. Philip St. on the Charleston peninsula on Dec. 10. Warren L. Wise/Staff


Vintage threads

A new vintage women’s apparel shop is opening in downtown Charleston.

Portal will offer pre-owned threads in a 1,023-square-foot shop at 189 St. Philip St. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday. It’s scheduled to open Dec. 10.

Tina Heath-Schuttenberg, co-owner of James Island restaurants Kwei Fei and Micho, said she has been walking past the site for the past five years and dreaming of opening her own clothing store.

“I come from a retail background with my history spent as a buyer and merchandiser for a quirky mix of high/low brands (such as) Buffalo Exchange, Zac Posen, The Plaza Hotel and Dean & Deluca,” she said.



Eyewear shops, handbag vendor, rebranded grocer offer new retail venues in Charleston area

During the past few years, she and her husband and business partner David Schuttenberg worked to create the two restaurants at Charleston Pour House on Maybank Highway, which she said kept her busy.

“The stars finally aligned, and I’m making the move back to my first love of retail,” Heath-Schuttenberg said.

Portal, she said, will be a buy-sell-trade-rental concept for vintage threads. She also plans to include contemporary brands. With an all-inclusive size range, she says clothing styles from edgy to demure will come in “an odd mix” that will be offered at an “affordable luxury price point.”

The shop also plans to offer curbside pick-up service and appointments for those who might need a safer shopping experience during the pandemic. All selling and trading will be done by appointment.

Holiday Food & Wine Gift Guide With Shop With Style

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to holiday gift-giving, food and wine always seem to be just the right fit – especially for people who are difficult to shop for. If you’re looking for gift ideas to suit any taste, Lifestyle Expert Amy Sewell worked with several companies to put together some ideas.

First, Omaha Steaks always has fabulous gift packages for the holidays – and this year is no exception! Their Tasteful Gift assortment has four each of their bacon-wrapped filet mignons, top sirloins, boneless pork chops, boneless chicken breasts, Omaha Steaks, burgers, and jumbo franks. You even get individual scalloped potatoes for sides and these scrumptious caramel apple tartlets for dessert! This entire package is $179.99, and while you still have plenty of time to order for holiday delivery, go-ahead place your order now so you can take advantage of standard shipping and check it off your list. You can order this at www.omahasteaks.com – and if you are anywhere near their stores, you can pick up the same item there as well!

Winter may almost be here, but it’s still the perfect time to enjoy that delicious year-round favorite…ICE CREAM! eCreamery has the perfect gifts for those with a sweet tooth. Their Santa’s Sweet Treat Collection includes four pints of their hand-churned holiday ice cream flavors such as Chocolate Cake with BrownieBites & Fudge Swirls, Sea Salt Caramel Brownie, Vanilla with Toffee Crunch, and my personal favorite, White Chocolate Peppermint with Chocolate Flakes. It comes with a dozen freshly-baked cookies that are individually-wrapped with these cute holiday stickers. In addition to their holiday collections,eCreamery lets you customize your own ice cream flavors and labels for those cartons! All of their pints are packed and shipped in dry ice, so they arrive in great condition and ready to enjoy. The Santa’s Sweet Treat Collection is$74.99 plus shipping, and you can find more information at www.ecreamery.com.

Next, personalized gifts are always popular, and PersonalizationMall.com is Amy’s go-to place for that. They are a leading eCommerce provider of personalized products and offer thousands of items with a broad range of innovative options. For the holidays, Amy loves these gorgeous Christmas Plaid Wine Glasses. These come in three different sizes, such as a stemless glass, along with both red and white wine glasses. They also have beautiful colors – you can also choose from red, green, or a mixed plaid. They are festive for Christmas – but they are not specific to the holiday, so you can enjoy using them anytime! These glasses start at $11.99 each, and you can find them at www.personalizationmall.com.

Finally, if you give wine glasses, you might want to give a little something to pour into them as well! White wine lovers will enjoy this Louis Jadot Chardonnay. It is a medium-bodied wine that pairs well with everything from fish and poultry to grilled vegetables. A versatile red wine for holiday gift-giving

What Is Sustainable Fashion? Here’s How to Shop Responsibly

I used to think I was a conscious shopper. I wouldn’t allow myself to buy new clothing unless I donated old pieces in my closet. I would donate clothing, shoes, and jewelry to Goodwill or various other charity organizations, priding myself in not disposing to landfills. And I tried to shop each season versus shopping when there were sales or a hot trend to capitalize on. Although these are all good tactics to becoming a more ethical shopper, it wasn’t until the pandemic slowed down my calendar and need to travel that I took sustainability more seriously.

While sheltering-in-place, I’ve spent time cleaning out my closet and have been shocked at how much I’ve consumed, underutilized, and thrown away without so much of a thought. In efforts to do better and offset my carbon imprint, I began researching sustainable brands and practices. With so many brands claiming to be sustainable, this was quite a daunting task. But considering fashion is the second largest industry responsible for pollution, it’s a task worth taking.

If more people committed to creative ways of sourcing, prolonging, and recycling clothing, we could heal the planet. But, what does this look like? To help us decide how to determine what clothes we have (and want to purchase) are sustainable, we consulted a couple of experts: Cassandra Dittmer, sustainability stylist; Dalia MacPhee, celebrity fashion designer; Shona Quinn, social consciousness director of Eileen Fisher; and Melanie DiSalvo, founder of Virtue + Vice.

How To Style Leather Pants, Plus 10 Cute Pairs To Shop Now

Scroll To See More Images

I like to think I’m pretty well-versed when it comes to styling, but figuring out how to style leather pants was a tricky one. I’m a curvy, mid-sized gal whose size fluctuates pretty much every other day, and we all know that leather—even faux leather!—can often be a little unforgiving, and sometimes even unflattering. That said, as I’ve whittled down my closet over the past few years and created a wardrobe of quality basics, leather pants have become something of a staple for me, and I’m here to share my styling secrets.

I love how versatile leather pants are: They can be dressed up or down, they work well with lots of other fabrics, they offer a unique texture and (when you find the right pair!) they can be super flattering, so don’t rule them out if you try one pair that makes you look like Sandy from Grease’s understudy. Though I tend to dress pretty simply—I describe my personal style as minimalist chic, with an emphasis on elevated basics—I feel like leather pants make my very plain pieces have far more impact.

Incorporating leather into an outfit can make even the most monochrome, neutral look feel super luxe and sophisticated. It’s easy to mix and match my favorite blouses, bodysuits, and outerwear on top of them, and putting on a pair of leather pants makes me feel like I can strut down the sidewalk Cheetah Girls-style (Except, not in the Barcelona heat, because I’d probably pass out from sweating).

My collection of leather pants has become quite large, so I’ve been able to play around with styling them to figure out the best ways to make the most of this closet staple. (My boyfriend has even asked me to please, please stop buying more leather pants, because we live in LA and I can only wear them a couple months out of the year. My unhealthy shopping habit says No, but I digress.)

Below, take a look at some outfit inspo for how to style leather pants in a few cute, uncomplicated ways.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

Monochrome Magic

TBH, I have no idea where I would wear this outfit, but that doesn’t stop me from loving it. I really like that these Get Choosy pants aren’t as traditionally slim-fitting as lots of other leather options. The cargo pockets and semi-safari vibes make these a little more casualand, in my opinion, a lot more versatile.

I played with volume by pairing them with an oversized blazer and skin-tight top. I’m a huge fan of mixing neutrals, so finishing off the look with some Yeezy shoes that match the pants perfectly really tied
