Our Story New Site Test

since 1994, scarpa has helped customers feel confident and (sartorially) ready for anything through kindness, beauty, and a dash of humor.

founded in charlottesville, virginia by uva architecture school graduate amy gardner, scarpa offers a distinct selection of women’s clothing, footwear, accessories, and beauty from established and independent designers. amy originally opened scarpa as a shoe store, serving up an edited collection of footwear to a town in need of good shoes. with scarpa’s evolution into a full-service specialty womenswear shop, our guiding principles have remained unchanged; we choose items for their thoughtful craftsmanship, smart design, and timelessness. eschewing the tide of trends, our buyers seek to offer fresh ideas for your wardrobe and lifestyle at the intersection of pretty and interesting.

we’ve been in the same storefront since we began, though as we’ve grown, the space has grown with us. over the past several years, we’ve completed six extensive renovations, which serve our goal of creating an atmosphere that’s warm and inviting, unique and memorable, and as well-designed as the goods on our shelves.


we pride ourselves on our talented and dedicated staff, and we deeply value the longstanding relationships we’ve built with our customers. we know that everyone is different (and keeps life interesting), and our stylists are always ready to chime in with personalized advice based on your lifestyle, tastes, and goals. from what to wear on an impromptu vacation (and even how to most efficiently pack your suitcase!) to curating a wardrobe that perfectly captures your personal style, we’ve got your back.

looking for the recipe to scarpa’s secret sauce? meet the gang or get personal (styling, that is).

momo and fuku

we LOVE corgis— they’re our (un)official mascots. if you stop by the store, you may get to meet fu. he loves attention almost as much as he loves snacks.
