Friday Fun

Friday, January 6th, 2012
Uptown boutique Local Motion has found a way to lift the doldrums of January clearance shopping. Stop by every Friday this month from 4 to 6 p.m. for happy hour(s) and find secret sale items each week. Racks are packed with fall and winter markdowns, and spring fashion is already arriving.
And if it’s Friday, then you can shop for bargain fashion accessories at Fun Sisters in Minneapolis. That’s right, any Friday. One of the original “occasional” stores is changing its format and will now be open every weekend, Friday-Sunday. A storewide sale is on all month. Get 25 to 50 percent off everything.
Local Motion, 2813 Hennepin Ave. S., Mpls., 612-871-8436

Maiden Minnesota

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

It’s safe to assume Maiden Minnesota will become an annual event, based on the turnout for Wednesday night’s inaugural event at the Chambers Hotel. The 200 gift bags – which I’m told included full-size products from The Thymes (I really should have arrived earlier) – were gone within 20 minutes. The stylish shopping event showcased women-owned, Minnesota-based companies and girls, there’s a lot to be proud of. It was fun to see Red Stamp‘s sophisticated stationery in person – the company is Minneapolis based, but sells primarily online. (The Russell + Hazel shop at 44th and France offers a small selection of Red Stamp products). Kirke Design had some cool, stretchy shirts and I couldn’t get over the crowd around the Elin & Clara table of decorated belts and headbands. Funny enough, one of the biggest discoveries of the night was actually one of the longest-standing companies represented: Local Motion, the Uptown shop that used to focus on local lines, but now has moved full-force into updated and affordable contemporary women’s apparel, including Free People and lesser known brands. I heard several women, gushing over the cute sweaters and coats for less than $150, comment that they always thought of the store as "granola," but not anymore!
