Where to buy girls' clothes that aren't pink and/or sparkly?

My 5 year old daughter does not like sparkly pink clothes. Sunday we went clothes shopping for kindergarten and we had a heck of a time finding clothes. The girls section at like 6 stores were complete busts, she found most of her stuff in the boys section...which is completely fine. She can wear clothes from the boys section if she likes.
But, I'd like her to have options. I think shed be fine with 'girl' clothes, as long as they were funky and cool and not sparkly and pink. I don't want to force 'girl' clothes down her throat, but I don't want her to be falsely railroaded into the boys section either.
In short, I'd like her to be able to express herself without such a false dichotomy of choices.
Does that make sense? I am completely fine with her wearing whatever she wants, I just want her to have actual choices to...you know....choose from.
So the actual questions....
1. Where are all the funky cool non sparkly/pink hypergender divided clothes at?
2. Have you gone through something similar with your child? Any advice?
PS I have nothing against sparkly pink things.
