Last night my mom (Rare Birds Blog) and I attended a VIP shopping and fashion event held at the new Timberland store on Michigan Ave! The event, hosted by Alison Ray of Sassy Moms in the City featured give-aways, personal styling sessions with Eric Himel, and plenty of sweets and treats.
Admittedly the first thing I think of when I hear Timberland, is that classic yellow work boot. I was impressively surprised to find that Timberland has upped the style factor in their shoe collections for men and women, even adding fashion forward scarves, hats and gloves!
I had the opportunity to chat with the store manager, Jeff Palmer, who was incredibly stylish and excited about the new direction Timberland has taken over the past several years. I was amazed to find that there were an abundance of styles for women, knee high and ankle boots, rugged urban alternatives and quite a few with heels and comfy warm shearling which is great in a city like Chicago. I definitely plan to add a pair or two to my closet this winter!
At the conclusion of the night we were gifted with a cute little bag which included a “City in a Garden” Tree seed kit, which is in keeping with Timberlands initiative to help reduce their impact on the planet, a gift card and a luscious textured infinity scarf!
Thanks again to Sassy Moms in the City and the Timberland store on Michigan Ave for a fun evening!
