If you’re looking for high-quality apparel and gifts to help you express your love of Lake Norman, you’ve come to the right place.

LKN Local is our go-to source for Lake Norman apparel, t-shirts, and creative gifts that all reflect a genuine passion for life on Lake Norman.

Owners Larisa and Anne have been friends for over a decade, and like everyone else in the area, they LOVE life on the lake and wanted a way to share that love with others through trendy apparel. That passion, coupled with their degrees in art and graphic design, brought LKN Local to life for all to enjoy.

Long Sleeve Tees & Pullovers

LKN Local offers extensive long-sleeve tees and pullovers for different occasions. Select one of their performance tees for a day on the lake boating, fishing, or kayaking. Or, one of the buttery soft cotton vintage long-sleeve tees for those cooler days around the lake.
