Private Shopping Parties

Get after-hours access to Portland's favorite women's boutique

We'll help you choose pants, skirts, tops and dresses that fit your personal style and body type while you enjoy delicious local wine and hors d'oeuvres and catch up with friends.


Give back to your community

15% of everything you and your friends purchase at your Private Shopping Party will be donated to your favorite local charity. After a fun and relaxing evening with your friends, you'll head home with some amazing new Fall clothes and a great feeling knowing that you've contributed a little something to your community.

Get a Look behind the curtain

During your party, Carla Mink (owner of Mink Boutique and one of Portland's most successful clothing designers) will give you a behind-the-scenes look at her design process, from inspiration all the way through production.
You'll learn just how easy it is to shop locally, and how many creative, hardworking makers you support in your local community when you avoid big box stores.


Sip wine. Catch up with friends. Shop locally. Do good. Feel good.

Private Shopping Parties in Portland Oregon



Are the parties free?

Yes! However, we put a lot of work into making sure that these parties are special with catered food, local wine, etc. So we do ask that you provide a $250 booking fee which is 100% APPLIED TO YOUR FINAL PURCHASE at your party. 


What if I don't spend my entire reservation fee during my party?

The remainder of your reservation fee will be added to your party's charity donation.


How many people can I bring to my private shopping party?

We require a minimum of 8 guests and can handle a maximim of 15. This number of guests allows us to be available for anyone who wants styling help, etc.


When can I have these parties?

We are available for Private Shopping Parties after regular business hours, 7 days a week. 


How long do the parties last?

Depending on the size of the group, these parties can go on for 2-3 hours.


Can we bring our own food/booze?

One of the wonderful things about these parties is that you will feel pampered. Let us do the work. We promise to provide delicious small bites for your entire group... enough to keep everyone's tummy happy throughout the party. We will provide 3 bottles of wine or bubbly, and a Mezze-style platter from a local restaurant. All offerings are vegetarian.


Is there a minimum spending requirement?

Absolutely not. However we do require a $250 booking fee to reserve your date. That fee is 100% applied to the party hostess's final purchase.


Who should I invite to my party?

Invite women you would like to spend an evening with and who will enjoy the styles that Mink Boutique has to offer. We love any opportunity to meet new customers!


How far in advance should I book my party?

Give us a call or email us - sometimes we can coordinate a party for you within a week. You'll want to give yourself plenty of time to organize your group!


What should I know about returns?

Our regular return policy is in effect for your party. All discounted items are final sales.


What is your party cancellation policy?

If you cancel your reservation with at least 7 days' notice, your entire fee will be refunded. If you give less than 7 days' notice, we will refund half of your reservation fee. Fee is fully transferrable to another date if you give at least 7 days' notice.
