Houndstooth in Eden Prairie

Monday, August 29th, 2011

If you can make it selling upscale fashion in Savage, then Eden Prairie should be a breeze. Popular women’s boutique Houndstooth has opened a second location near Eden Prairie Center. It’s a huge, raw space bordered by racks featuring Current/Elliott, Hudson and J Brand jeans, flowy tops by Joie and Alice + Olivia, and flats and wedges by Sam Edelman. Owner Amber Toste is planning to bring in some higher end lines specifically for the Eden Prairie location, including 3.1 Phillip Lim and Alice Temperley. I think the local ladies are going to love this boutique, once they find it (across the lot from the mall, past the McDonald’s, near Party City) in the maze that is Eden Prairie. 582 Prairie Center Drive #223, Eden Prairie, 952.261.2974

Getting in Touch

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Hazard of an “intimate accessories” shop in the suburbs: Busy moms like to multitask. Since we were already in Eden Prairie for gymnastics class, I figured I could check out the brand new Touch Boutique at Town Square Shopping Center (just south of Eden Prairie Center)… 2 year old in tow. He ran straight for the condoms and asked “Is that a treat?” Well, kind of, yes, but not for you! Hershey kisses at the counter provided momentary distraction.

Moral of the story: leave the kids at home. While there’s nothing vulgar about the merchandise – no movies or hard-core gear – the battery operated accessories are not behind beaded curtain, either. But the hockey mom crowd is sure to love this tasteful boutique, which takes the awkwardness and inconvenience out of shopping for bedroom toys, games and books. High-end lingerie adds credibility and a touch of class.
