Green City Market

The Green City Market (outdoor version) is upon us once again…..yippee aye oh!

I love going to get the freshest, locally, organically grown foods. Last year, I picked up some purple asparagus (it actually looked a lot more exciting than it tasted), sweet strawberries, and some interesting cheeses on one visit.

Last year, I saw Dale from Top Chef at the market picking out some fresh ingredients!

The market also has a great selection of flowers! Here are some gorgeous peonies (my fave flower of all time!) It’s definitely worth checking out if you are in the area…

Chicago People: Neiman Marcus Last Call

Neiman Marcus Last Call has arrived in Gurnee Mills! The grand opening is today but they had a pre-opening yesterday and I had the chance to check it out. The store was jam packed which made it a little hard to shop (especially with a huge stroller and baby in tow) but they definitely had some great deals! They had huge piles of shoes from D&G, MiuMiu, Modern Vintage, etc with an additional 30% off already reduced prices. If you’re looking for a dress for wedding season, you are in luck. The whole store was FULL of dresses all at great discounts.

I have a coupon for an additional 10% off 1 item and it’s only valid May 8-10. If you plan to check it out, leave your email and I’ll forward you the coupon.

If you do end up going to Gurnee, also checking out Off Fifth right next door. I found some great steals there as well! Happy Shopping!
