The best part of shopping in the burbs has to be avoiding the crowds and tourists on Michigan Avenue, but unfortunately the worst part is missing out on the high fashion boutiques and department stores that can only be found in the city. Luckily for you, Mallory Ulazek, owner of Chicago's CityBlue boutique, has created a mecca for high fashion that combines the merchandise of city boutique, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Located in Lake Forest, this new boutique is called CB, and this Friday, April 27th from 6 to 9 p.m. you can enjoy an opening soiree with complimentary champagne, horsʼ doeuvres, and a store-wide 15% discount. So next time youʼre considering sharing the Metra with commuters, remember youʼll have CB to shop at and itʼll make your trip a little sweeter.
CB, 662 North Western Avenue (at Western Avenue and McKinley Road); 847-283-8888.
