The Best Boutique Shopping in Manawatū


Whether you’re shopping locally or checking out some new wares on your weekend getaway, there’s nothing like a bit of retail therapy. Wandering in and out of boutiques brimming with luxurious clothing and gifts is an afternoon well-spent, and Manawatū has plenty of inspiring stores to satisfy your shopping appetite.


KILT Manawatu

Founded right here in Aotearoa, this fashion label is a firm favourite. KILT’s kaupapa is all about producing New Zealand-made products that are friendly to both your wallet and the environment, and they pride themselves on providing a top-notch customer experience. Not your typical chain store, their team truly want to get to know those who stop by, not just make a sale.

What sets this boutique apart is that their designers create pieces, not collections. They focus on making classic, sophisticated items that are built to last. Versatility is the name of the game at KILT and their clothing is designed to be worn, loved, and stand the test of time.

Location: 68 George Street, Palmerston North.


Established around 40 years ago, Trumps has been a local icon for decades. The current owners, Mavis and Marama, have over 60 years of experience between them – so they know a thing or two about women’s fashion.

The passion and dedication these two women have is well-known throughout Palmerston North and beyond, with customers travelling from all around the motu to pay this beautiful boutique a visit.

Trumps has something for everyone, stocking some of the most sought-after fashion labels from New Zealand, as well as a selection of international brands – think Beau Coops and Briarwood, Diesel and Dr. Martens, and plenty more. For a designer shopping experience with a friendly vibe, give Trumps a try.

Location: 15 Coleman Mall, Palmerston North.


Boutique Bash Ashhurst 5

About 15 minutes out of Palmerston North lies a little town by the name of Ashhurst, nestled at the base of the Tararua Ranges. Head to the heart of the village and you’ll find Boutique Bash – a store full of ‘humble style’ pieces to add to your wardrobe or home.

Run by mother-of-four Belinda, Boutique Bash is a haven for the curious shopper. Stocking a unique range of clothing, accessories and decor, it’s a treasure trove of thoughtful and charming gifts for yourself or someone special.

Shining the spotlight on New Zealand brands and artists such as Moana Road and Flox, this shop is a perfect addition to your weekend country drive, or as a destination in itself.

Location: 160 Cambridge Ave, Ashhurst.


Salt & Honey is a Kiwi-owned business that’s been generating quite the buzz since opening Feilding in 2022. Browse the fantastic range of clothing and accessories to put together a gorgeous new outfit, and top up your shop with a fine selection of beauty and homewares. There’s always something new to peruse in their central location.

The husband-and-wife owners love the town – and their playful Friends-inspired “Feilding” range is an emblem of their community spirit. All profits from these tees and sweaters go towards Manchester House, the not-for-profit organisation that delivers vital social services in Feilding.

Location: 72 Manchester Street, Feilding
