Pittsburgh has no shortage of great places to shop. We’ve gathered four of our favorites for you to check out this holiday season as you check off everyone on your list.
Offering clothing and accessories as well as home and beauty products, this storefront in McCandless Crossing is a local gem.
Growing up in Israel in the 70’s, Rue Boutique founder Ayellet Rubinstein learned first-hand from her parents what it means to have strong work ethic. As a fashion lover, she babysat and worked every summer so she could buy those coveted “must haves” on her list.
Rubinstein got her first taste of the fashion industry working as a store manager in a boutique in Tel -Aviv. Running a small business and attending to customers came naturally to her and she did it with great joy. In 1990, she moved to Pittsburgh to join a family business.
After 25 years of building a different retail destination, she aspired to branch out on her own and create a fresh new concept in retail as she knew it. Inspired by a trip to Paris, her lifestyle boutique opened its doors in November 2016 as Rue Boutique and encourages cutomers to cherish the old – and embrace the new. With gorgeous, high-quality apparel and jewelry, plus unique home decor and furniture not found anywhere else, customers are sure to fall in love with this one-of-a-kind shopping destination.

Luna Selene is an atelier of handcrafted footwear invoking the everyday elegance and timelessness of femininity.
Founder and designer Shannon Slack spent over a decade in the corporate world, struggling to find the perfect pair of shoes that were timeless and would hold up while she marched around the office all day. As a result, Luna Selene was born.
Slack’s vision for the shoe label was timeless femininity made to empower. Luna Selene, atelier of high-elegance shoes, was inspired by a woman’s daily life – from the boardroom to the red carpet – and the many places she will travel. With the belief women are unstoppable, Shannon handcrafted the perfect shoe that urges women and all fashionistas to dream big and never slow down; your shoes should keep up with your drive and determination.
Proudly designed in Pittsburgh with love, Luna Selene shoes are brought to life in the city of steel. With pride in their roots, Luna Selene embeds a little bit of the city into each shoe while being celebrated on runways worldwide. Slack’s first New York Fashion Week show was a tremendous success attracting the likes of New York City influencers, socialites, and media. What’s next? The designer is already brewing ideas for her clothing line while maintaining the ethically-sourced, hand-crafted credibility shoppers have known and loved.
