Ah, September. The kids are back in school, and you have some free time on the calendar—free time to spruce up your fall wardrobe.
The Glen Town Center is a great destination for all things shopping, and with the leaves just turning, a great place for an outdoor adventure.
Via Gelato is the perfect place to enjoy a crepe and coffee. Of course, we won’t tell if you decide to do dessert for breakfast, either. The Ferrero Rocher gelato is to die for!
Stella315 is brand new on the Glen shopping scene, and they offer the latest trends at extremely reasonable boutique prices. Owner Stella Chun often collaborates with other shops and restaurants on special evenings and events.
Vibrato is a longtime Glen favorite and one of two locations on the North Shore. Vibrant, trend-setting styles with helpful staff make it a go-to shop for every day and special occasions. 2021 Tower Dr. | 847-510-2081
Von Maur is one of the North Shore’s best-kept secrets. A killer shoe selection, free gift wrapping and, wait for it, no sales tax or shipping fees on purchases sent to areas of the country not home to another Von Maur. 1960 Tower Dr. | 847-724-4199
We love Vintage Nest for its artistic sensibilities in furnishings, accessories and fashion. Owner Mindy Schloss is the best at finding the “perfect” in an imperfect piece and repurposing it. 1891 Tower Dr. | 847-834-0287
Oh, Olive! is the second location for this Libertyville-based business, featuring top-notch oils and vinegars for every kind of taste bud. What we love—the wide selection of Galena Garlic Company spices and dry rubs. And yes—there’s gluten-free pasta, too! 1971 Tower Dr. | 847-730-3561
Flight is your girlfriend destination once the kids have the homework done and are tucked in for the night. With at least 80 wines by the glass, it’s a great place to catch up on the day and enjoy some adult conversation. 1820 Tower Dr. | 847-729-9463
