    You may have been sad (or glad!) when the bustling Gold Coast Starbucks (a.k.a. pickup joint) shut its doors back in December, but two beautiful things resulted in the aftermath: A bigger and better location was opened down the block, and one of our favorite retailers, Madewell, took over the old space. Of course, this was not without a complete overhaul — you've probably noticed (and heard) all of the construction over the past few months. While it's still a bit too early to tell, behind those papered windows is a gorgeous 4,131-square-foot retail emporium that's yours for the taking starting Wednesday, April 3.

    Trust: You'll want to be there when the store opens its doors at 10 a.m., because the first 150 eager shoppers will score a mystery gift card ranging from $10 to a whopping $500. And to give you a sneak peek as to what you can purchase with your "Madewell money," we've put together 10 awesome pieces you'll be able to find at the Chicago location (the 49th store in the U.S.) in a few short weeks. While Madewell is known for its jeans (since 1937!), click through to see some killer dresses, tops, shoes, and accessories to get you feelin' a little spring fever. Today is the first day of the season, after all.

    Madewell, 932 North Rush Street (between Walton and Oak streets); 312-337-3815.
