Alhambra is my favorite boutique in Seattle. It is one of the only stores with a cohesive and well-chosen selection of formal and semi-formal dress, featuring Bianca Nero, Graham & Spencer, etc. I brought my mother to the store and found the styles to be accessible to her generation as well as mine. They have gorgeous light-weight cashmere sweaters, with a variety of necklines, and an interesting and varied selection of tops and pants. They also go outside of the box on the designers they carry, and I love their vintage fabric line (Burning Torch?). Huge fan of this store.

Pros: selection outside of the traditional boutique box

Cons: stringent return policy

I love Alhmabra! This is a shop filled with such lovely, beautiful things. I get the priveledge of attending a special black tie holiday party every holiday season and I always find my dress here. The staff is so amazing and friendly. Even though I only come in a few times of year, they remember me, are very friendly and are so helpful. The clothes they have rival clothes you'll find in Europe and are very unique. Won't find this stuff in the Gap! I've found the prices range from reasonable to wouldn't that be nice! But what I like about this shop is that they are unique and you really can't find this stuff in hardly any shops in Seattle. They have a creative mix to their clothes that isn't pretentious. I just so love shopping there when I have the reason to buy something special! They never dissapoint me!

alhambra is not only a beautiful and unique place, but a successful small business in a sea of corporate cookie cutter shopping. it's true that they don't offer refunds, but what can you expect? i think people have been spoiled by nordstroms lax return policy. a family owned establishment, and a longtime seattle gem cannot be expected to absorb a loss beacuse someone simply changed their mind. the atmosphere and merchandising are exceptional, as are the wonderful fashions. owners serpil and shakir are active in the downtown community, and are lovely people, stop by and say hi to them and find out for yourself!

Having walked past this store downtown several times, I decided one day to go inside. They carry a lot of designer labels that are hard to find and the store is quite attractive.

However, there's a seriously snooty attitude going on in here, especially if you decide to browse the sale racks and aren't dressed to the nines. As a size 12, I felt a bit out of place as most of the display clothes are teeny-tiny (like size 0) and the staff wasn't exactly friendly and inviting, so I didn't want to ask for bigger sizes.

Prices are expensive, but not any more than other places with comparable merchandise. Parking is extremely difficult to find as this store is very close to Pike Place Market and in a busy part of downtown Seattle.

I love Alhambra BUT I love their warehouse outlet even better. Lovely imported goods, clothing, jewelry, shoes and stuff. The downtown location is all about experience but the warehouse offers great buys on past season goods. Usually a good deal of turnover so check back often.

I agree that Alhambra does not deserve such a low rating. The clothing selection is beautiful and so is the antiqued atmosphere of the store. It is true that it is considerably more expensive than a typical clothing store, but you don't find clothes like these is a typical store. All other boutiques in Seattle that have similar clothing, including some of the same lines, have similar prices. As for comments that the quality is not good, consider this: What kind of quality do you get when you shop directly in Paris or Rome? The same. It's not as if they are selling sweatpants and overalls. You pay for the unique elegance you gain by wearing this clothing.

Pros: Unique clothing, Beautiful layout

I don't understand why this beautiful store has received such a low rating. They're clothes are gorgeous and unique. This boutique is quite spendy, so I don't buy much there, but a girl can dream...
