Shopping Tour Recap with DahlStyle's Favorite Portland Area Boutiques

Last Sunday, Portland Shopping Tours had another fun and successful tour. This time the tour was a collaboration with Sara Dahlquist of DahlStyle, who took us all to five of her favorite Portland area boutiques that she has worked with over the years.

To recap the tour, here are the five boutiques we visited with a little summary from Sara about each:

1. Consign Couture

DahlStyle says: Consignment is a significant part of not only my own wardrobe, but it’s also a tool I teach my clients to use to keep garments in rotation and out of landfills. Consign Couture is one of my favorite consignment boutiques, not only to sell but to shop! Some of my very favorite pieces have come from Consign Couture.

2. Adorn

DahlStyle says: I’ve been working with Shop Adorn since there was just one location and now there are FOUR Shop Adorns! A fair amount of my own wardrobe was found at Adorn. They not only offer the BEST selection of denim in Portland, you can also find that special dress or jacket there that can add so much personality to your wardrobe.

3. EcoVibe

DahlStyle says: EcoVibe has something for EVERY woman. When I have clients who want comfort and style, I bring them to EcoVibe. I also respect their love for natural fibers and the environment. You can feel good about what you’re wearing! They give 1% of all their sales to 1% For The Planet.

4. Grayling

DahlStyle says: Designer Katy Kippen has an incredible talent for designing pieces that are not only contemporary and innovative, but also timeless. You’ll be able to find whatever you need - whether it’s a casual earring or an elegant statement piece.

5. Foundation

DahlStyle says: Foundation is the epitome of understated elegance that will not break the bank. They offer pieces that you’ll own and covet for years to come. Plus, they donate 100% of their profits to a rotating selected charity. This month’s recipient is Store to Door.

Each location we went to on the tour provided wine, snacks, and a 10-20% discount. We had lunch catered by Elephants Delicatessen in a beautiful location.

Portland Shopping Tours was launched by Tamara (owner of Consign Couture) in 2018 as a way to showcase the amazing small businesses of Portland, connect people, and of course, provide a fun shopping experience for people looking to discover new places.
