At Saluda Outfitters, we can’t wait for Spring and the reopening of our outdoor deck and live music venue on April 6! We are gearing up in March with new spring apparel and shoes from some of your favorite vendors and a few new ones, too.

Here is something special you do not want to miss. For all you out-of-doors and adventure lovers, we are bringing in new tee shirts from The Landmark Project with some fun retro styles commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the legacy of Smokey Bear. These commemorative tees are part of a one of a kind collection and for every product sold, The Landmark Project will donate 10% to the U.S. Forest Service for wildfire prevention education. You know you are going to want one so be sure to check in with us for their arrival date.

We have a new, updated and colorful selection of Keen footwear arriving mid-month. As well, our first delivery of Kuhl apparel and Astral shoes will be in store by months end.

Come check out our new jewelry line by Regina Andrew. This unusual stone, leather and natural metal jewelry is like wearing a work of art. We have also added a pillow line from Chandler 4 Corners. These New Zealand wool pillows are perfect for your lake house or mountain cabin. They are colorful and quality hooked pillows with beautiful artisan designed mountain scenes such as black bears, fall leaves and fish.

This is just a touch of what is to come for spring and summer apparel and gear.

 Also in the retail section, you will continue to see some great sales on winter wear and shoes. Stop by before it is too late to cash in on some great deals.

 Green River Eddy’s Tap Room is also making some changes. You will be surprised when you drop by to see our newly expanded bar area that adds more seating space for groups and meetings and just a great area to relax and enjoy friends and good music.

To enhance our 14 taps of locally crafted beers, domestics and wine, we have added a menu of tasty and quick bar foods that include crispy baked shrimp, fries, chicken twists, cheesy stuffed pretzel bites, humus veggie plates and more.

We have lots of fun activities scheduled in the tap room, including our Thirsty Thursdays with $4 drafts; Friday Open Mic Nights welcoming local talent to sign up for a fun evening of sharing original music; and Saturday night live music through March with the rotating members of Second Souls and special guests.
