I myself, a Chicagoan Born and raised, loves the fact that we have four seasons. But I understand that not all of us do. Pretty soon we'll be challenged with how to be just as stylish with fewer layers. Well, I'm here to give you the deals and steals for spring.
Get ready to shop and save on big name designers and practically everything in the store. This Friday and Saturday, clearance items will be marked down 25-50%. Nice. They had me at half off, so I'll see you there.
The spa professionals at Exhale will make you feel at ease, with a calming Zen that fills the building. For a limited time, you can get a yoga class, massage and facial package for $245 - that's $60 in savings.
If you are not a foodie like me you will still love the lunch and dinner menu at Frankie's. Italian food made from the passionate chefs and on Tuesday and Wendesday, get half off on house red and white wine.
Isider tip: Monday is "Industry Night" at many restaurants and bars. So, if you're visiting for a long weekend, ask the concierge or hotel front desk about those spots that offer industry deals.
Concierge discout cards
Have a conversation with the hotel desk. I promise when you tell them what you like, they will pull out cards of discount goodness from all over the city. I recommend to always have your questions written out for the concierge so they know excatly what you're looking for.
If you're looking for a new pair of glasses, don't wait until you go back home. Instead, stop by Visonary Eye Care. Classy, fun and hip frames that are not super expensive. I've met many visitors who have needed to replace a broken pair and they love this place. They accept vision insurance and, for a limited time, frames are 50% off.
