As boutiques and other unique clothing stores continue to pop up around the Twin Cities, Cliche, the shop that more or less kicked off the renaissance, continues to flourish. The Wedge neighborhood destination offers a variety of clothes, jewelry, shoes, and bags from crucial wardrobe basics to quirky statement pieces. This winter the location was filled with cozy sweater dresses. This spring, the place is teeming with bright-yellow rain coats, '70s-style jeans, flowy maxi-dresses, and moccasins. Featured designers include local talents as well as folks you won't find anywhere else in town. Though Cliche is always a store, it frequently becomes an event center too, as the shop regularly hosts trunk shows, fashion-week parties, and industry nights.
