Holiday Shopping Card

‘Tis the season to go shopping. No, I’m not talking about the annoying red and green already out in stores, but the wealth of new places or familiar places in new spaces ready for you to explore.

Porsche Design

Anyone who loves high design should head for the new Porsche Design store in The Galleria. It's filled with sleek luggage, sunglasses, watches, leather jackets, high-tech running shoes and more.

One Green Street

I loved One Green Street’s location off Buffalo Speedway, but the recent move to The Heights, seems, well, so much more organic. The eco-friendly store is helmed by Sherry Eichberger and she only stocks her lifestyle store with truly good-for-you, good-for-the-planet items.

Cunningham & Co.

Designer Linda Cunningham left the Haut Chocolate boutique concept for something cooler and more sophisticated. Pop by her newly-imagined boutique in River Oaks Shopping Center for labels like Z by Zac Posen, Issa and Houston’s own David Peck.

Un, Deux Trois

Un Deux, Trois, the trendy boutique for girls and 'tweens has relocated from West Ave to Rice Village on Rice Boulevard. The shop carries everything from dresses and accessories to swimwear and shoes.

Dryden-Kreps

CityCentre retail roster is getting an influx of boutiques this fall. The newest retailer to open its doors is Dryden-Kreps, a men’s clothing store featuring men’s suits, sport coats, custom clothing, furnishings, shoes and leather goods. Located across from Urban Outfitters, the retailer is another addition to the men’s shopping scene.

Envi Boutique

Girls just wanna have fun too, so there’s also Envi Boutique in CityCentre. The women’s boutique offers day-to-night dressing with pieces from Covet, MIilla, Veronica M, Chaser, Plenty by Tracy Reese, The Furies and Analili.

Pomp & Circumstance

It wasn’t so long ago that Pomp & Circumstance was a web-based jewelry collection designed by Marie Earthman. After a short stint in a cozy space off Persa, Earthman is expanding to a large store at the corner of Persa and Westheimer. In addition to affordable handmade jewelry, Earthman also sells apparel and gifts.

Biscuit Homegoods

Bailey McCarthy’s blog Peppermint Bliss is downright addictive, especially if you like interior design, find yourself balancing work and parenting and living life in general. Her latest endeavor, the store Biscuit Homegoods, is an extension of her design aesthetic and includes a line of high quality printed bedding which we have designed and manufactured in the USA, plus furniture, designer pillows, lighting and other home accessories.

The store has its grand opening on Oct. 27.

Tanger Outlets

If you don’t mind driving for deals, check out the new Tanger Outlets in Texas City. The grand opening is set for Friday with national retailers such as Michael Kors, J. Crew and Gap Inc.’s factory stores Banana Republic and Gap.

Holiday Card

Ever wonder how so many people get so much holiday shopping finished before Thanksgiving? Behold the power of the Holiday Shopping Card. From Oct. 25 through Nov. 4 retailers across Houston and beyond open their doors to shoppers who have purchased a card for $70.

In exchange, shoppers receive 20 percent off their purchases and the sales of the card benefits the American Cancer Society.
