Magical Holidays. Let it Snow.
Snowfall in the PNW can be challenging to predict, but at The Bellevue Collection, it happens nightly at Snowflake Lane, celebrating 15 years of snowfall! And downtown Bellevue’s premier shopping center is full of luxurious surprises for the holiday shopper and lots of delight for the family, too.
You’d be forgiven for thinking of Bellevue Square as just another shopping mall, but you’d be wrong. Home to more than 200 shops, the center features several brands that can’t be found elsewhere in the state, like Korean beauty brand TonyMoly and workout apparel enterprise Fabletics. It also features showrooms for current megastars like Tesla and Peloton bikes.
The shopping center is part of a larger selection of retail stores, entertainment areas and eateries called The Bellevue Collection. Bellevue Square—and nearby Lincoln Square & Bellevue Place—are a great destination to visit to get your gifts in order.
Snowflake Lane. The most magical winter wonderland.
The star of the show for the last 15 years in Bellevue is Snowflake Lane, a nightly celebration that runs from Black Friday through Christmas Eve. Great for kids of all ages, Snowflake Lane draws crowds from the Pacific Northwest and beyond! Some of the fun to be seen at this complimentary event includes costumed dancers, parade floats, and snowflakes drifting from the sky. Looking for something fun and educational for the kiddos? Check out the nearby Kid’s Quest Museum and then head out to dinner before catching Snowflake Lane.
New and only at The Bellevue Collection
Always bringing in fresh, interesting brands, new to the Collection this year is Tory Burch, the bright and colorful women’s fashion and lifestyle brand. For the minimalist in your life, The Reset is a capsule fashion store with pieces designed to pair with the rest of your wardrobe. Meanwhile, if you’re looking for ethically-sourced gifts, check out Matt + Nat, a PETA-approved vegan and recycled clothing store that specializes in bags, outwear and shoes. Better yet, you know your gifts will be unique, as you won’t find any of these stores elsewhere in Washington.
