It’s almost summer and you know what that means – ROAD TRIP!! For the second installment of the Tall Shopping Road Trip Series, I’m featuring tall boutiques in the U.S. Grab a tall girlfriend or two, pack up your car and cruise around the U.S. on a dreamy tall shopping trip! If you’re feeling really daring, you can even go coast-to-coast. Check out the interactive map at the end of the post to create your own route.
First stop – Talltique
6’4 Talltique founder Helen Pappas knows a thing or two about tall shopping (or the lack thereof). Lucky for us she saw a problem and decided to be part of the solution! The pants and jeans at Talltique start with an inseam of 37″ and go all the way up to 41″! Whoa! Wait! What? 41″ inseam?!?!?! Can you imagine? In addition to long pants and jeans, you’ll find on-trend maxi skirts, jackets (like my faux leather bomber jacket that I love so dearly), tanks, tops, dresses and even accessories.
Want to know what it’s like to actually visit the boutique? The Tall Muse was lucky enough to visit Talltique recently and kindly shared this photo with me. Check out her write up and more photos here.

Second Stop – Amalli Talli
Remember my Entrepreneurial Tall Sisters write-up featuring Amalli Talli? If not, here’s a refresher. Amalli Talli is a specialty boutique in the Minneapolis area providing casual and fun style options that flatter tall women. They carefully select trendy merchandise from national mainstream vendors that have the right silhouettes that work for longer arms, torsos and legs, and stock over 35 styles of denim in inseams from 34-38″!
If you can’t make it to the store, Amalli Talli just launched its online store last week. I pretty much want to buy everything on the webstore. Quick! Somebody confiscate my bank card!

Third Stop – Long Tall Sally
Depending on your level of wanderlust and time, your third stop can be at one of the 4 LTS’s in the U.S. – Utica, Bloomington, Chicago or Denver.
Last Stop – TTYA at Barneys Beverly Hills (or NY)
If wanderlust got the better of you and you chose the coast-to-coast route, your last stop will be Barneys Beverly Hills where you can try on clothes from the Taller Than Your Average (TTYA) line. You can also check out the TTYA line at Barneys in Manhattan.

Have you ever visited any of these stores? Am I missing any tall stores in the U.S.? Do you love road trips as much as me or do they drive you nuts?
