The most fashionable place to be in Long Grove last week was at the Mother’s Day Boutique Fashion Show, held on May 7th at the Grove Country Club. This marked the second year in a row for such a stylish event, coordinated by several of the merchants in downtown Long Grove. The evening featured shopping, cocktails, appetizers, and a runway show highlighting the current looks available in our local stores such as Olivia’s Past and Bella Donna Boutique. It was great fun to mix and mingle with so many well-dressed friends and neighbors, and to be inspired by the beautiful new fashions being modeled. Raffle tickets were sold to benefit the fight against Breast Cancer, and to support a group of local women who participate in a walk for the cure. Lady luck was on my side, because I ended up winning a gift certificate for High Tea with Gerri (our lovely Long Grove tea room), complete with an antique china cup and saucer. It takes a tremendous amount of effort to pull together a successful event like this, and I appreciate the local businesses who participated and helped make this all possible. It was an elegant evening of charity, community, and ultra-chic style!
