Located in the Heart of West Knoxville across from Franklin Square is one of the most unique shopping environments in Knoxville. After traveling the world, two native Knoxvillians have decided to return to their Smoky Mountain roots in launching Uncle Lem’s Mountain Outfitters. The store evokes impressions of an age gone by – a time of honesty and simplicity, with its rustic interior of reclaimed barn wood and cedar posts – while providing shoppers with the best equipment and apparel for a modern encounter with our beloved Smoky Mountains or destinations beyond.
At Uncle Lem's you will find the best in outdoor performance apparel, fashion wear, footwear, outdoor gear, kayaks, Stand up Paddle Boards and more. Like our slogan says, Uncle Lem's (ULMO) will outfit you from town to trail.
From fishing to hiking to camping to rock climbing to extreme kayaking, Uncle Lem's has you covered!

Currently Kevin and Cheryl Hill own and operate the west Knoxville location, while Kendrick Smith invested in Uncle Lem's first expansion store to South Knoxville along Sevier Ave. Investing in this up and coming area has been a very exciting endeavor!
