What is Portaluca?

Portaluca is a vibrant boutique located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, at 209 West Fourth Street. Portaluca exists to provide quality fashion at affordable prices, helping women to feel confident, optimistic, and beautiful. With our mission in mind, our name was inspired by radiant light – hopeful, powerful and bright.

Open to everyone, we sell women’s new and new-ish clothing and accessories at great prices. We regularly carry items from a variety of well-known brands like St. John, Banana Republic, Coach, Gap, Armani and many others. Delighting the environment and savvy shoppers alike, we give high-quality, donated items a second life.

Most importantly, all proceeds from Portaluca boutique benefit Dress for Success Cincinnati to help women achieve economic independence. Learn more about Dress for Success in Cincinnati here.
