Fabulous Shopping!

More than 25 shops from the Galleria will be on hand to show you the latest items that are “must-haves” for your holiday shopping list. From fashion to jewelry, to home décor and hostess gifts, we have you covered for even the most discerning gift receiver.


Find a staggering array of home furnishings and decor, both trend driven and timeless, at the Twin Cities' first and only Arhaus store. The Ohio-based retailer collaborates with artisans on many of its exclusive, globally inspired collections, which are complemented by upholstered pieces. Arhaus is known for using green materials, and anything with a "reclaimed relics" tag is a one-of-a-kind antique.


The name stands for Dress Up, Go Out. You’ll find clothes that are on-trend yet classic, whether you want something for lunch with the ladies, dinner with your sweetie, or a wedding with the family. Designer labels include Marisa Baratelli, Lafayette 148, and Zelda, with accessories to complete the look.

Eileen Fisher

The brand's first in the upper Midwest, this minimal yet warm boutique is full of timeless pieces. Come here to stock up on well-constructed basics and elegantly draped cardigans and tanks.

Epitome Papers

This award-wining stationery store in Edina offers extensive collections of custom stationery lines. The selection includes invitations, announcements, boxed cards, leather goods, pens, and gifts. Standout lines include Filofax, Vera Wang, Crane, Kate Spade Collection, Lallie, Smock, Elum, Bella Figula, Lettered Olive, and many other letterpress and engraving companies. The store offers in-house printing as well as custom-designed stationery and invitations.

Fifth Ave Optical

Find prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses by Lafont, Tag Heuer, and Alain Mikli, as well as contact lenses. This retailer also offers eye exams. Ask for options for specialty lenses, including lenses for your favorite vintage frames.


Talk about retail longevity—for more than 65 years, Gabberts has been a major player in town. The enormous two-level store and design studio, which anchors Edina’s Galleria shopping center, furthers the company’s niche as a high-end destination retailer for those who take pride in creating distinctive home environments. Gabberts boasts exclusive vendor relationships and signature product categories. Plus, check out the Odds & Ends outlet for designer furnishings at up to 70 percent off.

Indulge & Bloom

Indulge & Bloom has been a staple in the Minnesota floral world for more than 10 years. The tradition continues as Indulge & Boom strives to bring elegance and beauty to each floral design.

Lili Salon

William Anderson’s Lili Salon Spa of Minnetonka has opened a second location at the Galleria, replacing Rocco Altobelli. Lili offers cuts, color, nail, and waxing services and skin care. The salon itself—known for outdoor services in the summer—will have a “classic Hollywood glam” vibe.

L'Occitane en Provence

The colors and fragrances of Provence are the lure of these French–inspired products for face, body, and home, but the superior quality of the products keeps customers coming back.


This upscale specialty chain with a robust online following offers a wide range of sizes—4 to 13—as well as wide and narrow widths that can be difficult to find, even at department stores. As for styles, it’s fashionable basics (pumps, boots) and comfort with class (sleek flats) from brands such as Vaneli and Eric Javits.


There's something no-nonsense here. Origins isn't too chichi, and the stuff does what it promises. The company boasts that nothing in its complete line of cosmetics and hair-care, skin-care, and bath products is tested on animals.


Family-run since 1971, this boutique carries fun, colorful clothing, plus bright purses, comfy shoes, and jewelry to complete the look. Its interior is a bright and lively showcase for about 50 lines of clothing, mostly from Canada and the US, accessories by Vera Bradley, and shoes by Caressa, Spring Step, Easy Street, Footskins, and Børn.

Polarn O Pyret

Sweden’s largest children’s apparel retailer is right at home in the Twin Cities. The brand—pronounced POH-lahrn oh PEE-rhet, which is Swedish for “Buddy and the Little Guy”—is all about quality basics, performance outerwear, and bright colors, with sizes for infants through 12. The practical but modern vibe is our vibe. There’s a play area to keep the kids busy while you shop.

Pottery Barn

This popular store is known for traditional and transitional home furnishings, tablewares, and outdoor accouterments.


Owner Scott Rudd has gained a reputation for his mix of both traditional and contemporary, as well as handpicked imports. Designer names include Temple St. Clair, Simon G, Robert Lee Morris, and Honora for jewelry and Oris and Fredrique Constant for watches. Also find a selection of estate jewelry.


If you're a hard worker or frequent traveler, Tumi can supply you with the tools of the trade—the trade of stylish, luxury-priced luggage and bags, that is. One of its many signature lines is Alpha, an all-black leather collection of today's hottest trends in backpacks, laptop bags, and suitcases.


With something for everyone and every occasion, this kitchen/cooking/tableware shop stocks books, linens, gadgets, cookware, serving pieces, and small appliances—and does a great job with seasonal wares. The Galleria location is one of the largest in the country.


Whymsy at the Galleria offers a unique assortment of fun and colorful women's apparel, gifts, jewelry and handbags at a variety of price points. The boutique specializes in nontraditional mother of the bride and special occasion dresses and jackets. The selection changes frequently so check back often. Special orders are available.
