Discounted items at Vince 
Thanks to the retail cycle, end of season sales are actually the perfect time to shop for items you can still wear in the current season - especially in Chicago, where Winter is just getting started at the same time stores are trying to unload their cold-weather items to make room for Spring collections.

Oak Street is home to many of our most beloved (and sometimes most expensive) stores. And several of them are participating in the Oak Street Council's end of season Let It Snow Sale. We're talking seriously deep discounts on your favorite mid-to-high end brands.
