Best Women’s Eveningwear

  Readers, upstate: Lady’s Image (3910 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 478-7921)
  Readers, downstate: Twila Farrell (122 Second St., Lewes, 645-7007)
  Critics, upstate: Pat Halfpenny praises Lady’s Image for “its good selection of formal wear for all occasions.” The evening department boasts a large selection of gowns, but “There aren’t so many outfits in stock that you meet other people wearing the same thing.” (3910 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 478-7921)
  Critics, downstate: No matter your age, ladies, The Angel Shack is the place to find that standout dress. Just ask the customers who popped in before the most recent presidential inaugural ball. Owner Penny Grafton keeps a registry of sizes, styles and the events customers wear her dresses to so that no two women show up at the same affair wearing the same thing. Fortunate customers discover the one-of-a-kind evening dresses from Nicole Miller. Grafton orders just two such dresses each year and hangs them on the rack without fanfare. Other brands include Velvet, Splendid and Ed Hardy. Designer jeans lines include Hudson, Genetic and People’s Liberation. (170 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 226-8630)
