Owners Pearson and Spencer Turnbull open apparel storefront

Staff Report

In late summer 2021, Santa Ynez General debuted not only its second location but also its exclusive line of Italian-made clothing and accessories. 

Husband duo Pearson and Spencer Turnbull are thrilled to expand their lifestyle and design shop (located on Sagunto Street across from the Santa Ynez Inn), with their new apparel storefront (located next to Pony Espresso). 

“After a couple of years since we first opened here in Santa Ynez, we’re thrilled to further integrate ourselves into the region with the debut of our second location,” Pearson Turnbull said. “The new space provides us with an opportunity to bring a larger variety of brands to Santa Ynez, with a focus on California-based artisans.” 

They founded Santa Ynez General in 2019 with a vision of creating a luxury design shop. Pearson previously had a career in fashion, working at Giorgio Armani and Neiman Marcus; and Spencer was previously an attorney. 

Spencer Turnbull is originally from the Santa Ynez Valley and decided with Pearson to open a destination home store. 

This month they celebrate their second anniversary of their design store as well as the new location.
