During the Stone Age, dressing for distress was all the rage, because cavepeople knew tattered threads would make them less likely to be courted by a handsome triceratops. Dress for success with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of apparel and accessories at Silkwood in Lake Oswego. This Groupon may be used toward anything in the store except Belle Blanc items.
Silkwood’s style savants bedeck shoppers with retina-regaling attire in an elegant, family-friendly boutique. The chic yet comfy torso-adorning cotton Miilla shirt, complete with hand-stitched details, is perfect for summertime frolics in the frozen-foods aisle, and is available in black, charcoal, and white ($59). The HardTail football bootleg flare pant envelops appendages in fluffy 90% preshrunk cotton for stylish snug-as-an-arthropod comfort ($48). In addition to bolstering an outfit or coat, a handmade silk scarf can keep necks warm and intellectual-looking during scholarly spinal consortiums ($18+). Silkwood's shelves are brimming with a number of dresses, suits, shoes—including a prismatic assortment of Italian-made ballerina flats ($82+)—and handbags. Easily distracted counterparts can watch TV in the sitting area, and junior fashionistas can gab with other burgeoning blouse buffs in the children's play area.

When stocking Silkwood Boutique, owner Sandy Varzarschi is equally concerned with how the clothes look and how they feel. A self-professed lover of soft fabrics, she strives to find comfortable styles from both local and national brands, including Neesha, Neon Buddha, and Moontess. Most pieces cost under $70, and the boutique's many gifts—ranging from candles and soaps to scarves and jewelry—are likewise affordable.
