It Takes a Village

Totem Lake's new development has something for everyone

For a society slowly emerging from a pandemic, having been cocooned in athletic apparel, sweatpants, and the most leisurely of leisurewear for a year and a half – now feels like the right time to step back into fashion. In Kirkland, the Village at Totem Lake stands out with a selection of retailers to meet the needs of anyone looking to update their style. Purpose Boutique recently opened their second Kirkland store at the Village, offering on-trend clothing and accessories paired with a commitment to fight human trafficking. Whether you’re looking for a fun romper for a concert, trendy denim, or a sweet necklace to complement an outfit, you’ll find many options at Purpose.

Likewise Evereve features contemporary, current styles for work or play. For a more casual and youthful aesthetic, Zumiez carries a range of fun tees, swimwear, and sneakers – not to mention skateboards. Off-price favorite Nordstrom Rack has the wide assortment one would expect, with plenty of space to browse both designer and more affordable brands. If you’d like to keep strutting your stuff in workout clothing, Lululemon and Athleta have the sleek yoga pants, running tights, and tank tops to look put-together while doing so.

The first Pendleton store on the eastside will open soon with the beautifully patterned woolen coats and blankets the brand is known for, while Seattle-based Urban Tread is the place to shop for Euro-Comfort shoes that will keep your feet happy as you walk all around the Village. Grocery shop, get a massage at Yuan Spa, catch a flick at Cinemark – Bryan Kozu, Marketing Manager for the Village at Totem Lake, says the development appeals to everybody in the community.  In addition to the clothing stores, Snapdoodle is the perfect place to find a unique gift for a child’s birthday, and Barnes & Noble opened its first new Seattle-area store in 14 years at the Village. According to Kozu, “people want to physically feel the books and turn the pages in-store.” Both Mayweather Boxing and Madison Reed selected the Village at Totem Lake for their first locations in Washington.

Several fast casual restaurants are open for when you’re feeling peckish, with two more locally owned dining options coming soon. The Village is a place to shop, dine, or just hang out and Kozu says while management is being duly cautious with regard to pandemic safety, we can look forward to fun community events in the future. A live music series made for fun summer nights this year, and more music-related happenings are in the works. As Kozu says, “People should expect the Village to become a gathering place with events for people to enjoy.”

So come to refresh your wardrobe, stay for dinner, get an ice cream cone, catch a concert, and enjoy the community experience at the Village.
