Best Boutique

Cliché

What other boutique in town acts as an epicenter (or catalyst, really) for an entire fashion scene? Cliché's "Avoid the Grey" annual event was especially creative this year, featuring models in peep-show-style booths, and the boutique is always the highlight at the Envision Artopia art and fashion showcase. Owners DeLayna and Josh Sundberg also support local clothing and jewelry designers by featuring their lines in the store. Cliché houses more than 100 local and international labels and puts forward a tone that's both classic and stylish. If you're looking for a unique outfit or accessory to show off at a special event or even on a date, Cliché will have you covered.
