Hi Readers, Ryan Beshel here! Ahhh, spring. A time of change, renewal and celebration! Here at 900 North Michigan Shops, we don’t always need an excuse to celebrate – but, this month – we feel it only right to honor all the fabulous women in our lives. (And what woman doesn’t like a bit of shopping?) To do just that, we present to you “A Day For Her” – an all-day shopping event featuring exclusive discounts, activities, treats and raffle prizes on Saturday, May 12th from 10a.m. – 6:30p.m. All proceeds will benefit Friends of Prentice, the fundraising board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s Prentice Women’s Hospital. A special ticket price $20 (pre-sale) and $30 (at the door) leads the way to 20% off at Michael Kors, Mark Shale, L.K.Bennett, Karen Millen, Intimacy Bra Fit Stylists, Preggers and many more of our stellar retailers!
To sweeten the deal – the first 75 ticket buyers to purchase tickets in advance (and the first 25 people to purchase the day-of) will each receive two complimentary passes to an advance screening of Lionsgate’s What to Expect When You’re Expecting on Monday, May 14 at 7 p.m. promptly at a downtown Chicago theater.
Speaking of renewal … why not amp up your wardrobe with a little help from a friend?

Hey Readers! It’s Sarah Vargo from Maven and Social Gravity. Are you looking to help children and travel through time while simultaneously mingling with Chicago’s non-profit, fashion and social scene? Look no further…One Hope United’s “Eras of Hope” event is this Saturday at Mercedes at 1520 West North Avenue, 7-11PM. One Hope United is celebrating a 117-year history of protecting children and strengthening families with this inaugural fashion event. April is Child Abuse Prevention month. We are gathering to raise awareness and funds to support One Hope United’s efforts to prevent these horrific events from happening, or happening again.
I am honored to be on the prestigious host committee along with Benjamin Cottrell (Benjamin Cottrell Designs), Delrice Adams (Forecast for the Arts), Glenn Murray (220 Communications), Jenaeth Markaj (One Hope United), Larry James (House of Trend) and Marco Foster (Marco Foster Events). This special evening will highlight four different eras: The Roaring ‘20s, Spirit of the ‘60s, Awesome ‘80s and Into the Future. What era will you dress up in? I am still trying to decide…should I be a flapper, hippie, a Go-Go with shoulder pads or a futuristic robot? The possibilities are endless!
This event is sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, St. Claire, Chicago Magazine and Soul Beauty. Fabulous fashion installations produced by Benjamin Cottrell Designs will feature looks created by four designers, with hair and makeup by Strange Beauty Show and Lora Michael. Fashion and music will change hourly, starting with the 1920s and moving through the eras. Guests will enjoy entertainment and dancing, music by David Fenmore, bites by Lucero Latin Catering, beverages by St. Claire vodka, premium goodie bags, silent auction and a complimentary one-year subscription to Chicago Magazine.
And of course the party will continue at Underground (56 W. Illinois). Thanks Rockit Ranch Productions! Display your Blue Ribbon pin from Eras of Hope for no cover and express entry. Can’t wait to see which ERA you will be representing!
Thanks and see you there – Sarah Vargo
