One of the things shoppers love about the Francesca’s boutique is that you can go in every day and find something new. Francesca’s style is modern-chic and contemporary, making it one of the few shops where moms and tweens can find something they adore. The cozy boutique at Grand Ridge Plaza is one of the first Seattle-area outposts for the popular Houston-based fashion retailer. Francesca’s is packed with cute and eclectic clothing, jewelry, shoes, handbags and more.

Here’s what you’ll find at the boutique:

Dresses: From casual to special occasion, dresses are usually less than $50, with many in the $25 and under range. The selection is one-of-a-kind, making it a good resource for events such as holidays, graduations and weddings.

Clothing: Fashions at Francesca’s run the gamut from rompers to ponchos and wraps. While each piece is sold separately, they are color-coordinated to make it easy to pull together an outfit. Don’t hesitate to ask for help mixing and matching pieces. Sizes range from extra-small to extra-large; be sure to try everything on.

Jewelry: For such a small space, Francesca’s manages to fill it with an abundance of sparkling earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and hair accessories. Most pieces are in the $20 and under range, and earrings are usually less than $15. Check out their BOGO 50% off rack for sweet deals (buy one get 50% off the second item).

Home & Gifts: From wine stoppers shaped like roses to clocks painted with funky designs, Francesca’s has some surprising finds. If you’re looking for an affordable and endearing gift, it’s a windfall.

Bags: Clutches, wallets, totes and satchels—Francesca’s has them all. The boutique also has unique evening wear bags for proms and parties.

Shoes: As you browse, be sure to look down: The shoe selection is usually stacked beneath clothing racks.
