When you're holiday shopping for loved ones (and NOT shopping for yourself), it might be a little dangerous to step into accessories boutique à pied, 2037 W. Roscoe. You may end up shopping the store's unique scarves, jewelry, slippers, gloves, shoes, and boots for your own wardrobe. But if you can focus, here are events that could help you save money on friends or family who love stylish accessories:
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5 (5 to 9 p.m.): As part of Roscoe Village's Winterfest Weekend, à pied will host live music, wine, a Dove chocolate tasting and 15 percent off the entire store. Stop by à pied's sister store, Kickin', 2142 W. Roscoe, for mom-to-be and baby presents. Most Roscoe merchants will be open late with special events and sales.
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6 (1-5 p.m.): Winterfest continues with more live music, snacks and 15 percent off everything. Bring the family and then head down the block for Santa, sleigh rides and other children's activities.
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10 (6-9:30 p.m.): Try on winter styles and make your wish list for your hubby or mom at the All I Want For Christmas event. Make your list over French martinis and appetizers, leave it at the shop, and anyone who buys from the list from December 9 through 25 will get 15 percent off. Buying for yourself this year? Anything bought that night is 15 percent off. Store will also be giving away a pair of earrings from local designer Jodi Rae.
