It was a wonderful celebration at Levy’s in Nashville of 160 years in the fashion apparel business. Hundreds of well-dressed customers, vendors, associates, family and friends stopped by to toast this amazing clothing store, in business since Zadoc Levy, a German immigrant, began selling fabrics and custom clothing on Nashville’s South Market Street in 1855.

Above all else, the evening was filled with love! A silent auction benefited Second Harvest food bank; fabulous food was prepared and served by Hattie B’s, Union Common and generous friends (who personally smoked turkeys and pulled pork); music by Kingston was enjoyed by all, and the wine, craft beer, home-made sangria and amazing bourbon was flowing freely throughout the night.

Also throughout the night, the Levy family thanked customers, vendors, sales associates and friends for their unwavering loyalty and support; customers, vendors, and friends thanked the Levy family and their committed associates for consistently providing beautiful clothes, impeccable tailoring and exceptional service. Bottom line: a great time was had by all. Happy Anniversary Levy’s; here’s to the next 160!
