LINCOLN PARK - Up in here [at Racked], we love sales. And twice yearly sales at our favorite shopping meccas get our hearts all aflutter. Jayson Home & Garden, the stylish Clybourn behemoth of indoor and outdoor wares, is preparing for its summer warehouse sale, where that chair you've been eyeing and that flower arrangement and expensive vase can all be had for up to 50% off of their original prices. This sale is significant to us because, as stated it above, it happens twice a year, AND it runs for an entire month. Yep, you heard right: an entire month. It begins on Friday, June 29, and runs until July 30. That's plenty of time to furnish that brand new and barren rooftop of yours. [Racked Inbox]
OLD TOWN, NORTH SHORE - The second kick a** sale is at Cityblue Apparel & Denim, and its sister iteration in Lake Forest, CB. ALL of the summer pieces are 20-50% off. We covet Lauren Conrad's pink princess dress with cut out back from her Paper Crown line--don't judge. But you've got to hurry and fit it into your sked because the sale ends TODAY, June 27. If you get there in time, you can at least buy a new sundress to wear to Millenium Park so that you can watch the Paris Opera Ballet on the big screen in high style. [Racked Inbox]
