About us

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.
Looking to expand the Cloister Collection brand in late 2014, owner Steve Moore explored several options before deciding to open his next storefront right in the heart of downtown Athens, Georgia.  Cloister Collection of Athens opened her doors in February 2015 and has continued to feature a mix of eclectic clothing, shoe, and accessory brands. From locals, to students, to fans visiting Between the Hedges, they can all agree that Cloister Collection looks good in the Classic City!
From the Golden Isles to the Classic City, Cloister Collection prides herself on bringing  customers the latest trends and the best customer service. Make our store your one stop shop on your next Saint Simons vacation or Saturday in Sanford Stadium!
