Shopping in Portland, OR
Girls who live in the 'burbs of Portland, love Lake Oswego's Meringue Boutique! They are a lifestyle boutique, meaning that you will find something for every aspect of your life here -- great jeans to fill your closet, purses to carry around town, home accessories to keep your living space fresh and gifts to give to the other gals in your life. Meringue carries the top brands in women's appareal, so prepare to bust out your highest-limit credit card while you're here! However, they also have fantastic sales on a regular basis, so don't count them out if you're more of a budget shopper.
If your favorite type of shopping is for your little one, then Posh Baby or just Posh, as it's known to locals, should be at the top of your list for Portland baby boutiques. Really, there's no need to shop anywhere but Posh Baby if you're a Portland parent because they carry everything you'll ever need or want -- from cribs and bedding to clothes and shoes to bottles and Bumbos, Posh has you covered. Even better, Posh Baby stocks all of the best lines in children's clothing and gear -- Dwell Studio, Tea Collection, Petunia Pickle Bottom and even their own Posh brand line.
Tired of showing up to dinner with your girlfriends and be wearing the same shirt or dress as more than half of them? We have the cure. Sloan Boutique in Portland's Alphabet District is the perfect place to find something you love that is unique, while still being on trend. Another wonderful reason to come to Sloan (not that you need one) is to take advantage of their knowledgeable sales staff who will gladly help you put together an outfit for an upcoming event or special occasion. Don't miss their second location, which just opened on SE Hawthorne at the beginning of October 2011.
Portland parents who prefer to dress their kiddos with a bit of an edge are big fans of Black Wagon. This Portland children's boutique carries brands such as Vans and Small Paul and has one of the coolest selection of kid's shoes in the city. In addition to clothes, Black Wagon also carries furniture, room decor and gear that will make even the hippest Portland hipster drool. Be sure to check out Black Wagon's website as well -- you can shop online for days that you're stuck at home for naps!
Even walking by Tilde, you'll be able to tell that this is a Portland shop you'll want to visit -- the exterior of the store is painted bright turquoise and green, drawing you in to the goodies inside. Tilde describes itself as a "modern lifestyle accessories shop and art gallery" and we would second that notion -- Tilde is a true boutique, with only one or two pieces of each item they carry, so you're sure to buy something unique for your home. The next time you need a gift, no matter what price range, consider a visit to Tilde.
