relish—enjoyment of the taste of something; a liking, a zest, keen or pleasurable anticipation..

The space is serene. The clothes are distinctive, well made, and wearable. A personal stylist makes the experience easy and enjoyable.

The clothes are a fusion of career and vogue. Clean lines, a unique color palette, and sexy nonchalance are met with mannish tailoring and considered fabrications.

When customers walk into relish, they react.

relish brings style to life.

A true specialist store, we balance a distinctive aesthetic with classic tailoring and sophisticated nonchalance. From the edit of each season’s collection to the expert care each customer enjoys, relish is the product of owner Nancy Pearlstein’s vast experience in fashion.

A fourth-generation retailer with renowned taste and a keen merchandising eye, Nancy founded relish to provide women in Washington a source for clothing that is at once current and understated, chic and wearable.

Tucked into Cady’s Alley in the historical Georgetown district, relish offers exceptional clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories specially sourced to bring style to the lives of our customers.
