The Story

Hi, Patty and Lauren Feinstein here. We’re so excited you visited our store! Since you’re here to shop, allow us to quickly introduce ourselves so you can get right back to it!

My husband Jeff and I opened Cotton Island in Dallas 40 years ago. Jeff had successfully started and later sold a store in Houston called Tootsies (If you’re from Houston, you know Tootsies!) At that time, I was a hairdresser in a top Houston salon. With our shared enthusiasm and love for fashion, we moved to Dallas to set up shop. Cotton Island immediately took off! First in Highland Park, across from SMU and later a second store in Plano. Everyone loved us! We had a fresh, new style that women, college girls, mothers and daughters all wanted.

As a little girl, Lauren grew up coming to the store on Saturdays and later worked summers as a teen. Cotton Island became part of her DNA!

Sadly, in 2008 Jeff unexpectedly passed away. Lauren and I keep him in our hearts always, IN his honor a tiny heart with initials are on our Cotton Island Tees.

Since then we’ve become a dynamic mother/daughter duo that absolutely love what we do and take it very seriously. That means searching the markets and hand picking the best of the best styles and trends so we can guarantee quality for our customers.

We offer a comprehensive collection of jeans, shoes, clothing and accessories with fashion and your budget in mind. Our goal is to have something for every style and occasion but if you have any suggestions we would love to hear your feedback.

Now back to shopping – enjoy!
