Most shopping in South Lake Tahoe seems to be reserved for large brand companies. But the Sidestreet Boutique near Stateline (just over the border in California) is creating some fans – especially shoppers looking for a beautiful dress for a wedding or special event.
The boutique even thinks of their male customers and features a “man cave” area with a TV, snacks and drinks, where husbands can wait while their wives try on outfits, or vice versa.

Sidestreet – which has been in the area since 1972 – features both brand name and independent designers, including Sympli travel clothing, Naughty Monkey, Sky Clothing, bebe, Haute Baby, Eileen Fisher, Isabella Fiore, Jag Jeans and Double D Ranch. The store also sells accessories by Baggallini Bags, Blowfish Shoes, Ugg Boots and Anuschka.
Sidestreet Boutique even sells their own brands of wallets and fur coats and shawls. Sidestreet also sells the entire brand of Sympli, the travel clothing line that mixes and matches with each item.
The mother and daughter team of owners has designed the 12,000-square-foot shop to accommodate clothing and accessories for women, men and children, and the owners specialize in items for parties, special events, weddings and galas. The shop also rents out tuxedos for men and boys.
Prices for clothing range from around $30 for women's and men's tops to around $300 for a cocktail dress or suit.

The store also offers a huge array of jewelry, belts, hats, scarves, sunglasses and winter wear that is fashionable and utilitarian. The children and baby clothes are unique and adorable and includes sets and jumpers.
Sidestreet Boutique regularly has sales over 50% off and also offers free ground shipping on orders over $200. If you don't find what you want on your next trip to Tahoe, you can order from the Sidestreet Boutique website.
The boutique also serves espresso drinks, pastries from a local bakery and daily lunches like sandwiches and salads from the Sidestreet Café, located inside the store. So there's no reason to stop shopping just to pick up some lunch.
Sidestreet Boutique is located close to the Heavenly ski resort and the casinos of Stateline.
Also nearby are several major hotels, special event locations and restaurants in the South Lake Tahoe area of the lake. These include the Montbleu Resort, the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the Edgewood golf course and restaurant and the award-winning Chart House on Kingsbury Grade.
