The Purple Parasol was opened more than 30 years ago at its first location in Walla Walla, Washington, by 3 sisters. Sheryl, Sharlene, and Shirley then opened up a second location in Kennewick, Washington, about 5 years later.
After 25 years in its former Kennewick location, the sisters decided in late 2011 to move forward on a dramatic increase in the size of their facilities, opting to move to the historic downtown Kennewick district while more than tripling the size and space of their store.
The Purple Parasol's Kennewick location now stands just under 7,000 square feet of bridalwear, formalwear, dresses, tuxes, shoes, accessories, and more. They have 11 dressing rooms, with extended hours for working brides-to-be and dress-hunters.
Kennewick hours: Monday & Tuesday 12 noon to 6pm. Wednesday & Thursday 12p-7p. Friday 12p-4pm. Sunday 12p-4pm. Closed Saturdays.
Walla Walla hours: Monday through Thursday 10:30am to 6pm. Friday 10:30am to 5pm. Closed Saturdays and Sundays.
