About Us

The Dandelion is a unique shopping experience housed in a former parsonage built during the Steamboat Era in the heart of Irvington, Virginia. It has been described as a “living catalog” and a “treasure trove” of fabulous ladies’ clothing, accessories and gifts that owners Jean Ward-Smith and Sheila Broderick Brown have searched for worldwide. For over 40 years, women have regarded The Dandelion as their personal shoppers! Come by or make an appointment-our service is extraordinary! Like and Follow us on Facebook, The Dandelion-Irvington, VA, and Instagram, #thedandelionirvington, to stay connected and allow us to share what’s happening in our little fashion corner of the world.  Of course, for us, there is nothing better or more exciting than to share with you our Finds, in person, and to provide the unique shopping experience that The Dandelion is known for; but, in the meantime, let us inspire you through our images and posts and then come visit us in the store – we are not that far away!  A few of the brands we carry:
