We have some big news for 2013! After nearly 10 years as a brick and mortar clothing store in DC, Jackie Flanagan is making changes to her business model. Flanagan will continue to design the Nana Clothing line, produced here in DC, and host numerous sales events, but she will close the brick and mortar store in Mount Pleasant

"This is an extremely personal decision for me -- one based on my desire to spend more time on my favorite aspects of the Nana business: designing the Nana line and planning fabulous shopping events! It is bittersweet to leave the brick & mortar environment after a decade, but I am excited to focus on the design and styling side of Nana and to stay connected to our wonderful community of customers through our events in 2013," says Flanagan. She adds, "I love Mount Pleasant, and the Nana spot is a great one. I am excited to see what entrepreneur scoops it up and brings a new idea to the neighborhood."
