Refresh this Fall in Edmonds
With the change in seasons, it’s a natural time to shake things up in your routine. Whether that’s looking to spruce up your closet, change up your look, or embark on some healthy new habits or fun hobbies. Whatever strikes your fancy this fall, you can find it in Edmonds.
As we move into chillier weather, it’s a great time to update your closet. PNW weather means layers and many pieces can be worn throughout the year – so you can shop new arrivals as well as seasonal clearance racks for great updates to your closet.
Local style hub Rogue added a men’s section a few months back and this season they have added a section just for juniors, just in time for back to school. Make sure to stop by to check it out!
Rebekah’s Boutique is known to carry beautifully colorful scarves which are a great transitional accessory from summer to fall as the weather may still be sunny but with a bit of a chill in the air.
Shoes, specifically boots and booties, are a fall staple. You can easily take summer dresses into fall with a denim jacket or cardigan and a cute boot. Visit Crush Footwear to see their stock of boots and booties…and cardigans!
Updating on a budget but still have champagne taste? Pear Tree Consignment refreshes their stock daily and carries beautiful items at a discount from regular retail. Also, if you are looking to clear some room from your closet, you can easily make an appointment online to consign your in-season pieces.
A favorite Edmonds event perfect for a closet refresh returns the weekend of September 24-26. Brouhaha is a backroom blowout sidewalk sale when over 20 local retailers clear out merchandise ahead of the holiday season. This means GREAT deals to be found on fantastic items!
