Not a huge fan of the customer service here. Once they realized I wouldn't be spending a ton of cash and was "just looking" I got the cold shoulder. I wouldn't recommend it unless...

Not a huge fan of the customer service here. Once they realized I wouldn't be spending a ton of cash and was "just looking" I got the cold shoulder. I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a black card.... Pros: Selection of namebrands... Cons: Price, Customer Service, Attitude... more

I've been going here for years and it is a great experience every time- even if you're just looking! The selection is wonderful and the customer service stellar! You can get everything you need for a special night out in this one store. Don't let the parking stop you- that just part of the ballard charm! Pros: excellent customer service, designer lines more

Snobby girl is gone 10/23/2007

odonelly Provided by Partner
I read some of the reviews about snobishness at Olivine, I have to say this was the case a few months ago. But... snobby girl is gone!! Now really great and friendly girls are working. Georgia is so helpful eveytime I come in and the new girl Karen, also make up artist, is so sweet. I was able to come in a find the perfect dress for an up comming event. I also think that what the owner is doing with sustainable lines is just fabulous!!! Really great new lines, Beau Soleil, and Emily Katz, just to name a few. Pros: Great NEW sustainable lines Cons: costly more

CJ is the best! 2/20/2007

jaimeh Provided by Partner
I've had brazilians done at many different places, but never liked any of them to keep going back to the same person or place. CJ at Olivine was very warm and friendly and made me feel relaxed from the moment I met her. Brazilians are of course never painless, but this was as close as it gets. She was very quick and always concerned about how I was doing, not to mention very thorough. Olivine is a really hip and trendy store with this little clean and relaxing "beauty lounge" in the back. I'll definitely go back to CJ for all of my waxing needs! more

Love this store! 12/14/2006

Today was my first trip to Olivine and I loved it! The really helpful staff helped me pick out a gift for my best friend and even wrapped it and then they told me about their new esthetician and her super waxing! She had an appointment available and CJ did an outstanding job (and I'm really picky)! I will definitely be a regular now! more

it's all part of the Ballard experience 10/30/2006

Make Olivine part of your weekend field trip to Ballard! Check out their sale racks and then head over for a cupcake and maybe a movie. more

Olivine Beauty Bar! 9/9/2006

blulu Provided by Partner
Olivine has added a new twist to its' already successful shopping experience -- the beauty bar! If you haven't booked an appointment with Rebecca, you MUST put a facial and an eye brow wax on the top of your to-do list. Rebecca has a ton of experience, and the products are delightful. Now Olivine truly has something for every inch of your body. more

All In One Date Prep! 8/14/2006

First of all, nicest ever store owner!! Super cute store, attractively arranged and decorated. Your one stop shopping for date night! Everything from frilly underclothes to make-up, boots to jacket, and everything in between. Love it! more

I love it there! Too cute for words! 8/1/2006

I have been coming into Olivine for years. I adore this little shop and the staff that work there! They have unique items that I have not seen elsewhere. I read a review that they are overpriced...they can be a little spendy. However, I believe that spending a little more to not look like a Nordstrom clone is worth it, and their items are great quality. As far as the staff...these girls are my bootie divas. They absolutely will tell you the truth about the way jeans fit you and whether or not that look good on you. That is one of the many reasons why I now will only purchase jeans from them. Honest staff, unbelievable jean selection! Rebecca Wendfeldt...skin and eyebrow extraordinaire! I have been going to her for a very long time and followed her all around Seattle. I am delighted that she is back at Olivine as an in-house esthetician! My brows have never looked better! If you have not had her do your brows you are missing out! She is THE BEST! Oh yeah, and she cleared up my blemishes when I was younger...she's magic! Go treat yourself at this little gem in Ballard, you will wonder why you didn't go in sooner! Pros: Fabulous jean selection, Cute clothes, AMAZING staff! Rebecca! Cons: none more

Great Ballard boutique by Lily V. at InsiderPages 11/19/2005

Citysearch User Provided by Partner
Olivine is a great little store that sells not too trendy but more in the classy category clothing, shoes and accessories. They have some really designer items like Cosabella, Kate Spade,. Miguelina. I just love the vintage perfume bottles. The customer service needs some improvement though and parking is kind of a pain. more

i loved it ..well i am a girl and this is place to shop..so nothing new but great prices! by Hemlata P. at InsiderPages 11/8/2005

Olivine is a really great little store in the heart of downtown Ballard. They have clothes, shoes, accessories, lingerie, make-up, beauty products and candles. They carry a lot of small designers and upscale brands like Citizens of Humanity jeans. There is a good selection of pieces you won't find anywhere else. It can be hit or miss in finding your size, as most things only come in one or two different sizes. If you don't find something you like the first time you go there, it's worth going back later, as their inventory changes a lot. And the semi-annual sales are AMAZING. more

Cute boutique, needs improvement in customer service by Ruth W. at InsiderPages 9/28/2005

Citysearch User Provided by Partner
I heard so many great things about the selection of clothing, shoes, bags and lingerie at this store, so I decided to stop in one weekend to check it out. They definitely lived up to my expectations with regards to their selection, as they did have quite a collection of pretty, feminine dresses and tops, trendy handbags and a plethora of bath/beauty products. However, the one thing that deterred me from making a purchase was the fact that not one salesperson approached me (even though there was only one other person in the store), or even greeted me. I got a very unfriendly vibe and some not so nice looks which really took away from the shopping experience. more

pretty, friendly, waaaayyyy too expensive 5/5/2005

jayteeinseattle Provided by Partner

Stuff I Get Compliments On 3/16/2005

thidekow Provided by Partner
To this day, the items I bought from Olivine 4 years ago - stand out in the crowd. I went in when I felt like I'd lost my girlie image in the techie world. The girls were helpful, but not too aggressive. For a boutique experience, try Olivine. Pros: Lingerie more

I've been a customer of Olivine for about 2 years, and I always have a positive experience there. The sales girls are friendly, helpful, honest, and never try and give you the "hard sell". The selection changes almost daily - new stuff comes in all the time. Pros: Heidi - makeup artist, lingerie department, music more

What's All The Fuss About 4/3/2004

deviatrx Provided by Partner
I don't know what all the fuss is about - yes - it's a nice girly looking store - but what can you buy? It's so expensive for what it is - and who needs another pair of seven jeans to look like everyone else? I think stores like this make everyone in Seattle look like they walked out of Nordstrom - BORING. I've seen hair clips there for $20 that I've found on Cap hill for $4!!! That's not even a small difference! Overpriced, Unoriginal, and BORING. Pros: Makeup is Affordable, Small, so quick trip Cons: , Out of the Way more

always come back 1/2/2004

Olivine is a feminine experience. I enjoy the stylish, yet classy selection in clothing. The customer service could be perked-up a bit, but then again there is nothing worse than an annoying sales person. I have been a returning costumer for years. If you want a deal go to the Gap. If you want to treat yourself and feel special, go to Olivine. Pros: Quality Clothing, Wonderful Make-up, boutique setting Cons: Expensive, Limited parking more

no different from nordstrom 8/19/2003

Don't get me wrong, Nordstrom is cool - but I guess I just had hoped that Olivine would have things that no one else had. . .But I've seen these $$$ brands all over town, and that's a bummer. I just hate looking like everyone else in town. . .Tons of selection for such a little shop. Totally, totally cute with a happy atmosphere. The shop girls pretty well leave you alone which is ok, but all around I've been bummed with it. I personally think that if you want to find cute original stuff - pass on Olivine. Pros: cute atmosphere, fun clothes Cons: not unique, parking scarce more
