High-End Holiday Shopping in Cleveland Follow @nyccitiview
Maybe it’s your boss, a client, your spouse or someone on your holiday list who’s known for his or her refined tastes. Whomever they are, there are just some people who should receive a gift that doesn’t fall in the same holiday gift-giving category as fleece pajamas, romance fiction or Santa-themed neckties.
When that’s the case, the area offers variety of high-end shopping locations with dazzling luxury brands like Tiffany & Co., Lilly Pulitzer and Saks Fifth Avenue. So regardless of whether you’re doing a Black Friday marathon or a last-minute Christmas run, Cleveland has you covered.
[Be sure to check these locations for all the many events, musical offerings and family-friendly activities they’re hosting this holiday season!]
Few places can compare to Crocker Park, a lifestyle center located in Westlake (West Side) that boasts tons of retail stores, office buildings (including the headquarters for American Greetings), luxury-style apartments and more than 25 places to dine. High fashion starts at BCBG Maxazria and extends to Michael Kors. Locally owned apparel favorites include the hugely popular CLE Clothing Company and the vintage-y Homage. There’s a bevy of upscale salons and spas, as well as more than 30 locations for gorgeous fashion accessories. Crocker Park also offers a fantastic variety of family-friendly events, tree-lightings and Santa sightings throughout the holiday season.
For upscale- and boutique-style shopping, one of your best options is ETON, located on Chagrin Boulevard in the East Side neighborhood of Woodmere. It’s here that you’ll find a unique variety of independently owned and major national retailers—all offering products with an upscale flair. Get a makeup refresher and a facial from the adorable Powder Room. Sport some bling from big-name Tiffany & Co. Nosh some cupcakes and pies from the Vegan Sweet Tooth. Or, tip back a few muddled mojitos from Paladar Latin Kitchen and Rum Bar.
What do folks mean when they call this East Side destination a “lifestyle center?” They’re referring to Legacy Village’s 15 dining locations, weekly events, live music, 135-room hotel and, of course, the dozens and dozens of boutique-style retail stores. Shop local apparel and jewelry at the independently owned Banyan Tree. Check out the hottest new serving ware at Crate & Barrel. And, enjoy some craft brews at the Granite City Food & Brewery. It’s all happening at this Beachwood area shopping Mecca.
Cleveland’s upper echelon knows that if you need your fix of high-end shopping, you get familiar with Beachwood Place. This 129-store indoor mall boasts tenants like Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Kate Spade, Vera Bradley, Michael Kors and COACH (among many others).
