A Note About Our Online Store

While you’ll always find the best selection when you visit our downtown Asheville boutique, our NEW online store features many seasonal favorites and new arrivals. Please note that we often order items in small quantities and our inventory moves quickly. If you see something you like online and it’s not available in your size, reach out to us and we’ll do our best to find what you need.

Occasionally, an item may sell on our store floor simultaneously with your online order. In such rare instances, we will promptly notify you and discuss available options. 

Thank you for shopping with Adlib!

Meet Our Owner, Anna Sagel

A lifelong world traveler, Anna settled in Western North Carolina in the 1980's with the dream of bringing the goods she'd seen on her travels to her new home in the mountains. Not quite sure how her vision would take shape, Anna liked to say, "I'll Adlib it!" The phrase stuck, and more than 30 years later, Anna runs Adlib Clothing with her signature sense of adventure and style!
