BEST BOUTIQUE

Cliché

The outside of the dirty brick building on Lyndale doesn't seem like anything special, but once inside, the store's raspberry-colored walls and vaulted tin ceilings welcome browsers to a secret fashion wonderland. From high-fashion white drop shirt dresses and vintage jumpers with buttons to die for, A-line skirts, designer jeans, and a dizzying array of shoes and bags, the Uptown boutique is perfect for any young hipster looking for classy dress with an edge. With new and locally designed clothes and accessories, featuring Twin Cities-based designers like Pather Yang, Annie Larson, Arwyn Birch, and Kjurek Couture, the selection at Cliché is matchless. The inventory is fresh, refined, and affordable, reflecting the tastes and passions of the store's local owners, Joshua and Delayna Sundberg. The store is perfect for young twentysomethings looking for new threads on a college student's budget. Joshua loves pairing style and thrift, while Delayna studies runway and vintage fashion in films. Grab anything off the rack at Cliché and leave your dull clothes behind. No matter what you take into the dressing room, you'll come out sporting an outfit no one else has but everyone else wants.
