After a few months hiatus, Urban Style Emporium's blog is up and running once again! First off, I should probably introduce myself. I'm Aimee and the intern at Urban Style for the summer. It's my third week and i've already learned so much about the industry--it's nuts!
Some updates on Urban Style Emporium! Like we've stated in previous posts, we have moved to 200 East Delaware in a brand new location! On our Web site (www.urbanstyleemporium.com) we have specific directions that i'll place in the post, too.
We are located UNDERGROUND on the northeast corner of Delaware Place and Miles van der Rohe. Walk east on Delaware Place one block past Michigan Ave. to Mies van der Rohe and turn left. Look for the brick stairs leading down. We are located just inside on the right. For handicap accessible, just past the steps you will see a walkway at street level leading into the building. Take the elevator to the lower level. STORE ENTRANCE IS ON MILES VAN DER ROHE DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM CAFE MED BY BICE.
Since opening up the store at the new location, owner Terri Vizzone, Ines Manrique and Andrea Slack have been working hard to get the Urban Style name out to the masses! For the summer and into the next few weeks, we have MAJOR sales happening! The majority of items in the store are 25% off and an extra 20% at the register...can't beat that! We also are having our Annual Indoor Side Walk Sale in the next few weeks, so keep looking at our Web site, Twitter (twitter.com/urbanstyleemp) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/urbanstyleemporium)!
Sale items include pieces from Elm, Planet, Ivan Grundahl, Lorain Croft and more! We also have a lot of great opportunities for you, the customer to benefit!
On our Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/urbanstyleemporium) post a picture of a Urban Style outfit and get the chance to win an $100 gift card in store during the Fall season!
I'd say that's a pretty sweet deal for summer. And speaking of fall's lingering possibilities, keep a look out for trends that will be popular during the autumn months. Leathers and furs are a must to keep warm in the Windy City and if that's not your thing, try the hot-selling line of jeans by Cookie Johnson with a basic t-shirt and bold, statement necklace! Dressing up or down, Cookie Johnson's jeans are a must have for fall!
Just a little preview for the beginning of the week, but every post i'll pose (a little alliteration for you folks) a question at the end!
So, this week's question is...
Who is your favorite designer and what is on your fall MUST HAVE list?
