Summer is now officially in full swing, so if you haven’t had an opportunity to give your wardrobe an update for this season then you are in luck. Sales abound, both online and in the stores, with great savings on things you may have been coveting this past spring. Here is a current list of some of my favorite places and what they have going on at the moment.
The purveyor of beautiful fashion with an artful edge for both men and women has great sales on the likes of Dries Van Noten, Acne and Rachel Comey. What I love about this Capital Hill destination is it has pieces that you can build a wardrobe on that will last beyond this season. I always feel like I am shopping in Soho when I am here, and the sales staff is stellar. Free shipping on all ground orders until June 26, 2014. 1523 10th Avenue, Seattle, 98122 or www.totokaelo.com.
This online retailer of the latest and greatest is the go-to for me when I am looking for brands I love like Current/Elliott or 3.1 Phillip Lim, and it has unique accessories and great sales, at up to 70% off. I absolutely love how quick their packages arrive, and with free shipping and Amazon Prime access, it’s the fashion fast track. www.shopbop.com.
I fell in love with this store when I was in NYC and was so happy when Bellevue Square welcomed Intermix in October 2013. This boutique has on trend, edgy pieces that are standouts. From rag & bone to Yigal Azrouel, and Stella McCartney, their perfect selection of women’s clothing, shoes & accessories are a little slice of heaven. Right now they have an additional 30% off sale, so get going! Bellevue Square Mall or www.IntermixOnline.com.
I love to peruse the regular and sale racks at the Barneys in downtown Seattle, but I also love shopping Barneys Warehouse online. It is a fabulous way to score coveted pieces from the current season. I found a pair of The Row for Superga sneakers for a fraction of the retail price this spring, and the clearance section is amazing. Barneys NY at Pacific Place in downtown Seattle or www.barneyswarehouse.com.
This hip little gem in the heart of Magnolia Village is a must for scoring 50-70% off of mens and womens clothing, including Tart, Bella Doll, John Varvatos, Bugatchi and Velvetmen. They have huge selection of not-so-basic basics by Michael Stars, so it’s the perfect place to get fresh tees, tanks, dresses and maxi skirts for summer and into fall. Right now they have 50% racks for both men and women, plus sale denim from Joes, AG and Hudson. 3308 West McGraw Street, Seattle, 98199, or www.shopthebrik.com.
Baby & Company
This Seattle fashion institution has been on the cutting edge of what’s cool for almost forty years. Their innovative approach to nurturing up and coming design labels as well as carrying established designers make this a favorite place for those who love originality and beauty. On Wednesday, June 25 they begin their summer sale, with 30% off of all men’s and women’s collections. Mark your calendars. 1936 1st Avenue, Seattle, 98101 or www.babyandco.us.
