At Theophilus, we believe in comfort and style for every woman. All shapes, all sizes, all ages. No pressure to look a certain way or be told what is in style. Instead, we believe what's in style is what you love to wear. What - when you wear it - makes you feel like yourself.
We understand that our customers are who drive our business. That's why we are here, to serve you in finding the perfect gift, an outfit for a specific occasion, or that special piece that will grace your closet for years to come. Styles that bring comfort and simplicity to your life. Life can be hard and fast- we want to help you relax a bit, have a little fun, and enjoy the experience of giving.
“I love connecting with the people that walk through the door. I love having the opportunity to be creative with display and merchandising. I love hunting for new and exciting merchandise that I know our customers will enjoy. I love how well received Theophilus is in Brevard. That sums up, in a nutshell, why I love what I do! ”

66 East Main Street - Brevard, NC 28712
Theophilus is nestled in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina - situated in the midst of Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Forest. We are surrounded by waterfalls, hiking trails, biking, cycling, paddling, a brewery right across the street, restaurants, and so much more!
The bad news is, there is no major highway leading right to Brevard.

“The location of Theophilus is part of what makes it so great. It is off the map. People have to hunt for it. I am excited to launch our online store so it can be available to those who don’t live close by - but would still encourage people to come to Brevard to experience the small mountain town vibe of our downtown.”
