great boutique. 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.
Retail as a cultural experience, complete with Italian leather, Turkish finery and Andalusian overtones..
Like its namesake in Granada, Alhambra's decor features traces of Moorish influence. Intricate wrought iron arches that shelter women's clothing and jewelry evoke the Kasbah; thick carpets luxuriate on wood floors; tea is served at all hours. Amidst these trappings, sumptuous silks, original jewelry and 1930s teak furniture abound. Owners turn to New York, Paris, Milan and Istanbul for a women's wear collection that's a tasteful blend of fashion-forward and elegant classics.
Alhambra is the best store in Seattle. They have A+ costumer servise. Every body is friendly. They have nice items in the store.
i shop here!. 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!
Beautiful Store and selection. 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.
Beautiful, unique shop. 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...
