In 1987, Ira and Marion Moore bought a little specialty shop on Sea Island, Georgia. Being located next to the Cloister, a world renowned five star resort, the shop was fittingly named the Cloister Collection. In May of 1994, a second Cloister Collection was opened in the Shops of Sea Island located on Saint Simons Island. This shop has become one of the twenty Lilly Pulitzer Premier Signature Shops in the country. The last thing you’d expect to find at a strip mall in a small coastal town, as stated in the March 2011 edition of Coastal Living Magazine.
The Cloister Collection is located in the Shops of Sea Island at 600 Sea Island Road Suite 13 on Saint Simons Island, Georgia. The store is open Monday thru Saturday 10:00-5: 30 pm or you can book an exclusive after-hours shopping event for you and your guests. You can visit our website, (which is currently under construction but bookmark it and come back!) or find us on Facebook.
Our favorite spring product is the Clare dress in all prints for the season, not only is the fabric great for traveling, but is classy and flattering for all ages.
Your first glimpse of St. Simons Island is across the celebrated Marshes of Glynn, made famous by Poet Sidney Lanier. Called “the nursery of the sea,” these natural treasures are the birthplace of much of our sea life. You will feel it the minute you step foot on the Island- St. Simons Island is one of the most charming and friendly places on earth! Beneath the draping moss and arms of the giant live oaks that line our roads and pathways, an Island of residents, part-timers and visitors are happy to be spending their time in this special place. And happy to be sharing it with you!
