Away from the thrill rides and mouse ears lies a shopping lover’s mecca. From luxe fashion powerhouses such as Chanel and Jimmy Choo, housed at the dazzling Mall of Millenia to the savvy shopper’s sanctuaries, Orlando Premium Outlets, there’s no shortage of options for style connoisseurs. But, if you really want to dive into one of a kind finds away from the masses, these boutiques are the city’s hidden gems.
If you do find yourself in the middle of the tourist attractions, you’re in luck. Tucked beneath the busy Universal Orlando City Walk sits a refreshing alternative to its kitschy t-shirt mecca neighbors. Think bright vibrant colors synonymous with the sunshine state in easy to wear styles for all sizes. Flowy trapeze dresses to carefree tunic. Coastal inspired attire is cool, both literally and figuratively and alluring to just about any age. Pick up a cute tote, the Happy Reversible Tote beckons to go home with you, or opt for the beaded sea life stretch bracelet. For only $20, this versatile trinket makes a great yet useful souvenir.
From baby to bridal, this little gem in Southwest Orlando has a little something for everyone. Fun finds like the Lily Pulitzer agendas for students, blue tooth fairy doors for toddlers, and of course the ultra-stylish apperal in the likes of Michael Stars, Simply Southern and Mudpie to ensure the entire enclave will come out smiling. Living up to its reputation, the 2016 Winner of Best of Southwest (Orlando), prides itself on customer service and unique gifts.
