Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.

Hoot & Louise


For years, Anna Avant has looted her grandmother’s home of its retro knick-knacks to add charm to her own Memphis home. Anna loves handmade apparel, unique jewelry and rare gifts. So when Anna left the corporate world to open a boutique, she hoped to bring to clients similar treasures to those she’s taken from granny’s house.

Named for Anna’s grandmother, Hoot + Louise reflects the style and charm of Louise “Hoot” Williamson. Hoot is a one-of-a-kind woman, and that uniqueness serves as inspiration for the hand-selected items you’ll discover in this eclectic boutique. The feel at H+L is like granny’s living room, where old mingles with new and where everyone feels at home.

    Hoot + Louise is such a cool and unique shop, and Anna is the best! I love the story about how the name evolved. We are very fortunate to have businesses like Hoot + Louise in the South Main Arts District. Thank you, Anna…especially for sharing your talents and your great merchandise with us, your downtown neighbors!
