Thank you for the excellent images. Your mystery shrub is one of the many varieties of the Pieris genus, often referred to as the Lily-of-the-Valley Shrub. Pieris species are commonly used in northwest landscapes where they are valued for their early flowering habits. See https://landscapeplants.oregonstate.edu/plants/pieris-japonica.
