Home to high-end fashion brands and locally made wares alike, Bellevue is a one-stop-shop for all your holiday retail needs.

Bellevue has been a shopping destination for years, but even more so now that it is the PNW’s exclusive home of some of fashion’s biggest names retailers like Neiman Marcus, Jimmy Choo, and Tory Burch. Many of Bellevue’s high-end retailers are located at The Shops at the Bravern. Between Jimmy Choo, Tod’s, and Salvatore Ferragamo, the exquisite-footwear box is more than checked. Pick up a gorgeous handbag at Louis Vuitton or Hermès, eyewear at Oliver Peoples, a timepiece at Omega, and Haute fashion straight from the runway at Bottega Veneta, Gucci, and Prada.


Boasting even more great shops, The Bellevue Collection is a sprawling lifestyle complex anchored by Seattle-based department store Nordstrom. Here you’ll find everything from top fashion brands like Vince, Ted Baker, and Burberry to the brick-and-mortar presence of a local tech giant, Amazon Books, and even a Tesla showroom.


On Bellevue’s Main Street (also called Old Bellevue), find an assortment of upscale boutiques offering items for the home, gifts, and jewelry. Discover the warm glow of one of Oprah’s favorite things: a Glassybaby hand-blown votive candle holder. Or indulge yourself (or your sweetheart) with a piece of custom-designed jewelry at locally owned Gordon James Fine Diamonds.
