  • They've Got You Covered

    As a new season gets underway our thoughts (especially here in Minnesota!) turn to successfully staying cozy yet stylish too. Two of our esteemed vendors do a wonderful job  providing fashionable comfort. Both are proudly designed and produced in the USA!

    Cameleon is a line of jackets created and produced by the mother daughter team of Carolyn & Kristen in Minneapolis. Cameleon  began in 1988 when Carolyn, after being laid off from her twenty year career in teaching, created a line of wearable knits and started selling to her friends and neighbors. The duo are devoted to selling unique well made pieces that inspire their customers. They offer a Fall/Winter line of jackets in wool and in Polartec fleece.  The wool line combines their love of prints and textures with an easy fitting style. Their fleece line is the ultimate choice for lightweight warmth in a rainbow of colors.

    Generously sized and softly shaped, the Sylvia Coat has a single hidden button. Featuring a shawl like collar, long sleeves and two front pockets in a wool blend.

    Sylvia

     A Cameleon bestseller, the B. Coat has a soft fleece interior and a wool blend exterior that is treated with dintex, a state of the art membrane that is wind and waterproof, making it impenetrable to weather conditions. It has a dramatic foldover collar, an off center button front and on seam side pockets.

    B

    Janska was founded in 2003 by Jan Erickson whose dream was to make clothing both comforting and beautiful. Jan had no experience in the industry when she designed a jacket for her friend Jean who had limited mobility because of a stroke. Jean lost her ability to dress in the beautiful things in her closet. One night Jan had a dream about a jacket design that would be comforting, beautiful and easy to wear-a jacket that would keep Jean warm and give her back her sense of style. It was the beginning of what would later become Janska. Today Janska sells to clothing boutiques all over the United States and Canada. Jan was named the 2014 Colorado small business person of the year for her commitment to providing jobs in the Colorado Springs community. Whether you want to make a statement or simply keep the chill away, Janska has clothing for you.

    We love Janska's Annie's Wrap!  Equal parts cape, shawl, and fleece vest. Cascading shawl collar. Unstructured design with open front, roomy pockets, and ample armholes. Generous curved hemline hits mid-thigh in the back. The oversized collar can be turned up and worn as a hood.

    Annie's

      This heather, faux felted wool cover-up features an open cascading front, generous patch pockets and contrasting black stitching. The Cascade Vest's versatile design makes it easy to be worn open or accessorized with your favorite belt. Perfect for adding that extra touch you've been searching for to update your wardrobe.

  • Funky Ficklesticks

    Diana Taylor has been creating, devising, and designing since pre-school and has developed a life long fascination with fiber and textiles. She began by producing large sculptural figures made with patchwork fabric and paint. These designs were sold in artisan galleries, boutiques and museum gift shops. Along the way Ficklesticks was born. In 2007 she discovered a way to produce Ficklesticks that were only about a quarter inch wide. This opened some fantastic new doors. Suddenly she was a jewelry designer, a fiber jewelry designer to be exact!

    Diana  turns bendable fabric strips into fun and funky adornments and engaging jewelry pieces. Incredibly unique and innovative, they are all made with bright and wonderful fabrics and no two are exactly alike. Overtaken by creative energy she takes these bodacious wire filled fabric sticks and turns them into gorgeous necklaces that look fabulous with everything.  Her whimsical designs come in a variety of seasonal colors that will surely complement your wardrobe.  These cheery concoctions have been a big hit at our Fawbush store and we are  excited to offer them online as well!

  • The Longevity of the LBD

    Fashion historians ascribe the origins of the little black dress to the 1920's designs of Coco Channel. She introduced her famous little black dress in 1926. Vogue magazine declared it was the fashion industry's answer to the Model T Ford. Intended to be long lasting, versatile, affordable and accessible to a wide market, its ubiquity is such that it is simply referred to as the LBD.

    The LBD is considered essential to a complete wardrobe, every woman should own a simple black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion,  for example, worn with a jacket and pumps for daytime business wear or with more ornate jewelry and accessories for evening.  We at Fawbush's  continually strive to offer our customers a number of choices in finding that perfect black dress. Here are a few of our favorites that encompass the traits of an LBD; simplicity, versatility and functionality.

    Chalet's

The Jeri Dress is done in a bamboo/cotton blend with a touch of stretch. Sleeveless, it has a face framing ballet neckline with shirring detail and fabulous draping at the below the knee hemline.

Building your wardrobe and adding flair is easy by introducing Sympli's novelty separates. The V-Neck Dress is a stunning basic that will stand the test of time. Add a jacket in cooler weather and wear it on its own as temps warm up.  A colorful scarf or chunky necklace will elevate it to new heights.  It has a banded v-neckline and a sophisticated longer length.

  • A Fresh Look For Our Fawbush Store

    After buying and thoroughly remodeling a building for the Fawbush website and staff, owner Dave Rutt focused his attention on enlivening the Fawbush store in the Galleria of Edina. Fawbush's has been a proud member of the Galleria family since 1991. Dave has currently renewed Fawbush's lease for another eight years, so women throughout the Upper Midwest are ensured of high quality unique fashion choices well into the future.

    It has been a busy and productive five weeks at the Galleria! Construction crews worked overnight and miraculously disappeared(along with their messes)by opening time each morning, allowing the store to remain open for business during the renovation. The sparkling result of that hard work is indisputable. From the moment a customer passes through the gorgeous new doors and takes in the fresh paint, dashing new carpet, sophisticated wallpaper, gleaming chandeliers and welcoming cash wrap, they are truly in for  a delightful shopping experience.

    We extend an invitation to all of our Fawbush customers to stop by our store, say hello and browse through our fabulous selection of women's fashions. If a trip to tropical Minnesota is not on your agenda, we are always here for you at Fawbushs.com

  • Fabulous Flax

    Each year Flax returns to Fawbush's with several lines in a variety of colors from subdued to vibrant. They offer simple linen separates that make life easy for women. Flax began as Angelheart Designs in the late 1980's in an old barn outside of Ithica New York. Designer Jeanne Englehart and her husband turned their handmade clothes cottage industry into true manufacturing after they traveled to the Baltic states where factories lay dormant and linen was plentiful. In 1993 the first lines of Flax hit the U.S. Despite the fact that Flax does not advertise and the lines are sold only in boutiques and online, Flax clothes are wildly popular. In fact an online Flax fan community for people with "Flax sensibilities and spirit" has over 1300 members who find Flax to be the most comfortable clothing in the world.

    Flax cuts their sizes on the large side, they are clothes that fit real women comfortably. Everything can be thrown in the wash and ironing is optional. Flax even includes affirmations on the care tags with thoughts such as; I am whole, full and complete in me, I am happy, and I am considerate of others, these affirmations are inspired by ideas from customers and employees.

    Thus far this season we have received three lines of fabulous Flax creations. Neutral Flax is comprised of their popular basic color palette which pairs well with each of the other lines offered throughout the year.

    Bold Flax is known for their bright and beautiful vibrancy, fun to wear colors with a pop of plaid to enliven the mix

    Star Gazer Cardi

    Underflax is the softest and easiest to wear, mechanically softened linen, so fabulous it is no longer just a sleepwear collection.

    We hope the easy going style of these lines makes you a Flax enthusiast!

  • A Word From Our Shoppers

    We have recently heard from a few of our treasured customers who were kind enough to share a few thoughts about shopping online with Fawbushs.

    Kalee writes: I started shopping with Fawbush's several years ago. It was at a point in time when independent women's boutiques were either closing or targeting younger women. Here I was, in my 50's,being pushed aside by the retail world. Somehow, the idea of wearing bright colors and jackets with loud patterns, sequins, and pockets on my boobs, did not make me happy. Over time I began to shop online and discovered Fawbush's. I love their website for so many reasons. There is something for any woman, regardless of size, who wants to wear fun and/or funky clothing. The site offers a wide variety of price points. Measurements are provided for each item,rather than showing the item on a 5'9" model and describing it as hitting the thigh. I'm 5'2". I can't relate to that image, but i can relate to a list of measurements. And if more help is needed,you can call and talk to a real person. I'm 63 now and still like wearing clothes that are trendy and fun. Fawbush's gives me that and I don't have to have pockets on my boobs, or sequins or zebra stripes. Thank you for being there for us.

    Karen writes:
    Where to begin in my praise for Fawbush's? As a fashion-conscious, comfort loving, quality loving plus size woman, finding clothes that I actually enjoy wearing was always difficult. If they fit they looked dumpy. If they were fashionable they didn't fit. Discovering Fawbush's was a dream come true. Fun clothes. Well made clothes. Affordable clothes. That FIT! Lots of them! Every season! I no longer have that what- am- I -going- to wear quandry every time I have to go somewhere. All of this would mean nothing if the service was bad. But no, everything comes just as I ordered it, on time, neatly packaged with those irresistible little Jelly Belly packets in the box. I've referred friends to Fawbush's and they love it as much as I do.
