About Us

Slate is a fashion + lifestyle shop born in Edgartown, MA on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Tucked away under a sunshine hued striped awning, our storefront offers a carefully curated assortment of established and emerging fashion designers, jewelry, home accessories & clean beauty products. 
At Slate we put a big focus on giving back to our community through partnerships, events, conscious selection of brands and charitable giving. We believe that our differences make us stronger and our stores proudly support a diverse group of designers and makers.  Transparency matters to us. We actively seek out brands that are openly committed to bettering their communities, reducing their environmental impact and have an eye on the future.  This is really important to us! 
We love puppies, people, blue jeans, bare feet, fresh flowers, surfing, traveling, a good book and a gray day (every once in a while), year round white, lots of layers, and helping our customers & friends define and express their personal style.
Our island store is open seasonally from late March thru December.  During the off-season we stay busy buying, traveling, reading, skiing and finding inspiration in all of these experiences for the coming season.

Just before Covid we opened a second store in Charlestown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Boston, MA.  Our family has lived here (on and off) for years and we waited a long time to find the right space - which we did! A historic, corner store with high ceilings and great light!  While the start was bumpy (to say the least), we made it thru and found our stride and hope you'll come visit us on the corner of High + Green Streets. Open most days and year round.
