What You'll Get
Mannequins make wonderful pets because they quietly flaunt the latest fashions and don't need bones to love you unconditionally. Earn their ardor with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of designer apparel, accessories, beauty products, gifts, and more at Blue Elephant boutique, located near Central Market.
Blue Elephant stocks high-end women's fashions and products from popular designers and brands such as 7 For All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, J Brand, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Roxy, True Religion, bareMinerals, OPI, Catstudio, Kiehl's, and Bumble and bumble. Instead of wafting through a sea of grimy thrift-store blazers with rumpled tissues lodged in the pockets, you'll get a wardrobe that smells fresher than a 16-year-old's bow-adorned first car parked on a driveway made of air fresheners. Blue Elephant's colossal selection of basic tees, denim, dresses, and jackets makes it easy for naked time travelers to deck themselves out in style from head to toe to the miniature heads at the end of each toe.
Modish matriarchs, meanwhile, can get gifted this Mother's Day with a variety of accessories and handbags, candles and home fragrances, skincare products, cosmetics, and more. Thank moms for years of dishwashing with a luxurious Lollia hand cream ($23.99) or an Austin-themed dishtowel by Catstudio ($15.95), or garnish her chic new outfit with a Dogeared necklace ($34–$75). A whimsical Washington, DC throw pillow, meanwhile, will protect her from getting lost during a visit to the nation's capital and wandering onto the Senate floor during the traditional morning mud wrestle.
With the sunniest season waiting just around the corner like a stark shadow in a surrealist painting, now is the time to stock up on airy summer frocks. Spend an afternoon browsing Blue Elephant's trendy boutique and update your own treasure trunk with goods, gear, and gifts galore.
- Hands down, my favourite place to shop in austin. They have the perfect mix of high & low priced items, so there's something for every girl. – tay r., Yelp
- I shop here for the cosmetics. They carry Fresh, Bliss, Mario Badescu, among other brands. They also carry clothes and shoes here, but these items are more casual and geared more toward the college crowd. – Sue L., Insider Pages
