It's no wonder that Reese Witherspoon and her brand Draper James took the award for Best Shop in Tennessee.

We love boutique Draper James (with brick-and-mortars in Dallas, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee) for its bright, colorful prints, oh-so-Southern charm, and quirky sayings. Shoppers are encouraged to make themselves at home, sip on a glass of sweet tea, and stay awhile as they experience true Southern hospitality. You'll find Southernisms at every turn – from stationary to t-shirts to melamine platters – that make Draper James the go-to stop for quick birthday presents and hostess gifts. So, it's no wonder that in the polling for the South's Best spots, Southern Living readers voted Draper James as the Best Shop in Tennessee. The little blue and white-themed shop also came in at #2 on the best overall list.

In honor of this award, owner/creator/muse Reese Witherspoon has shared a little video with us as a token of her appreciation to you, the Southern Living readers, who voted. In the video, Reese is wearing Draper James' new Scallop Sweater Dress.

And, Draper James would like to share a special treat with Southern Living readers as well:
