Tired of all those shopping chains and snooty designer wares on the Upper East Side? Enter Sam & Lex, a sister-owned boutique that boasts brands not typically seen this far uptown, like Veda and Mother. Alexandra and Samantha Mann have created an intimate shopping experience catered to twentysomethings with a feminine edge. Walk in or book a private appointment and receive styling tips from the girls while perusing items like LNA Fallon V-neck T-shirts ($71), Paloma blue silk shorts ($158) and Mother denim Dropout overalls ($275). And though it’s no rooftop party, the loftlike space features an outdoor terrace (with a bar cart!), to be used for trunk shows.
