Minnesota is home to some fantastic boutique shops, most notably in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. There are so many good places to shop; it can be impossible to know where to start!

To help you find the perfect boutique for you, here is a list of the top Minnesota boutique fashion shops in Minneapolis, Wayzata, Excelsior, and Edina.

Minneapolis

Queen Anna

As a leading contemporary women’s lifestyle boutique in the Twin Cities Queen Anna House of Fashion is not only a great way to find some new, fashionable clothes, but to also support independent and emerging artists. Also, Queen Anna is philanthropic and promises to support brands that share similar core values as their own. This includes humanitarian efforts of organizations that assist in social justice, awareness, and disaster relief.

Mille

For women, by women is how Mille describes themselves, and they back that up. They work with a large number of designers, forty-seven to be precise, to make sure their customers are getting the latest and greatest from the design world. Whether you’re looking for jeans, dresses, or a new favorite shirt, Mille is a great place to start.

Parc

Born in 2008, Parc has focused on simple, wearable pieces from independent designers from around the country. Between their small goods, accessories, shoes, jewelry, and clothing, it’s hard to imagine you won’t walk out without falling in love with one item.

D.Nolo

D.Nolo is only six years old, but it’s already one of the fastest growing co-ops in the Midwest. Located in the trendy North Loop area, you can shop at the following boutique stores: Bluebird Boutique for all your denim, tee shirts, and sweatshirt needs – Bomber Shute for a range of products from both established and up-and-coming designers – Kindred for luxury brands – Requisite for European designs – Rosegold for amazing jewelry.

Martin Patrick 3

A gentleman’s paradise, Martin Patrick 3 features three main product categories: interior design, fine home furnishings, and men’s apparel. In 1994, they were simply an interior design firm, but they have blossomed into one of the top shopping destinations for men in Minneapolis.

Askov Finlayson

Askov Finlayson’s mission is simple: Keep the North Cold. They make high-quality, fashionable gear for all seasons that help facilitate adventure and exploration. Better yet, they give 120% of their climate cost every single year to support climate solutions. Founded by Eric and Andrew Dayton (sons of former Minnesota governor Mark Dayton) in 2011, Askov Finlayson has since grown into a staple of the Minneapolis community.

Edina

Bluebird Boutique

Not only can you shop at Bluebird Boutique at the D.Nolo co-op, but if you’re in the Edina area, you can also stop by their standalone store. Here, you’ll find brands like Citizens of Humanity, Nation LTD, Monrow, Vince and EQuipment, and Elizabeth and James.

Nani Nalu Beachwear

It may be winter now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t shop for a new swimsuit! Nani Nalu translates to ” beautiful wave” in Hawaiian, and their goal is to find the perfect swimsuit for all women. During their Fit and Flatter service, you’ll try on swimsuit after swimsuit as their swim fit expert races around the store finding the perfect swimsuit for you. It’s never been so easy to try on swimsuits.

Pacifier

Pacifier has two locations, one in Minneapolis, and another in Edina. Their mission was to create a place for “cool kids” gifts for parents. From their car seats to strollers, books, to travel toys, odds are you’ll find everything you’re looking for here when it comes to kids toys. You might even find some items you didn’t know you needed!

Wayzata

44 North

44 North is branded as a lifestyle boutique + beauty bar. From Brochu Walker to Ecru, they have an excellent range of designers to choose from. With a bare site that doesn’t reveal much, you’ll have to visit their store in Wayzata to see what they are all about. However, judging by their Instagram page, you won’t be disappointed once you arrive.

Merilou

Dresses + Rompers, Tops, Bottoms, Jackets, Denim, Sweaters, and Small Goods, and more. That’s what you’ll find at Merilou boutique. You can also expect excellent customer service, as the owners promise a genuine, warm, and welcoming experience during your time shopping.

Excelsior

Primp

For the fashion-obsessed, Primp is the spot to shop. As their owner Wesley Uthus puts it, “Primp is meant to be a place where you can experiment with style and discover what you like by just trying things on.” They have everything from athleisure to outerwear, so you’ll no doubt walk out of their store with a bag in hand.

GRAY Home + Lifestyle

GRAY Home + Lifestyle is a mother-daughter team that wants to help bring an extra amount of beauty into your life. In their boutique shop, you’ll find clothes, bags, home decor, and furniture that embraces the classic, minimalistic aesthetic that is so popular today.
