If you're anything like us, you'll be at 938 W North Avenue at 10 am this Friday.
Why, you ask? Because that's when Chicago gets its brand-new Lincoln Park Sephora (the first one on the city's North Side.)
Need some incentive to hop out of bed early (or perhaps step out of work for a minute or two) to be one of the store's first customers? The first 100 shoppers will get gift cards for up to $100, and anyone who spends over $50 is entitled to a free 60-minute makeover session.
