220. New Digs for LUXE wearhouse’s High Fashion Discounts

 You’ll find discounts of up to 75% off on some of the hottest designer merchandise for fall at the LUXE wearhouse pop-up shop which reopens to the public TODAY in a brand new Kildeer location!  Marcy Sparr, the Barrington woman who owns the business with her partners, says you’ll find incredible deals on designer handbags, premium denim, fall and winter coats, cashmere and much more at this season’s shop which will remain open through December after this weekend’s 4-day opening event.
You’ll find LUXE wearhouse at The Quentin Collection shops, 20771 N Rand Road in Kildeer , just around the corner from Fresh Market. Marcy says the new location is a little smaller and warmer and feels more like a boutique than last season’s space at Deer Park Town Center.  There are plenty of fitting rooms plus so much merchandise to choose from thanks to Marcy and her partners’ background and connections in the fashion and retail industry.
“We have great outerwear, fall jackets, puffer coats, awesome jeans, colored denim, amazing cashmere sweaters, a lot of silk chiffon shirts, printed shirts and plaid is really big for fall.  You won’t want to miss the amazing designer bags we found.  You can’t beat the price and quantities will be limited so shop early!”
You’ll find more details about their merchandise and this season’s trends below, but here are the LUXE wearhouse dates and hours for their opening event.
Friday, September 20:  Hours 10 am to 9 pm

Saturday, September 21:  Hours 10 am to 6 pm
Sunday, September 22:  Hours 10 am to 5pm
Monday, September 23:  Hours 10 am to 6 pm
Here are some of the trends they say are hot for the fall and can be found in their store……

263. Marketplace: “Top 10 Must-Haves for Fall” at Notice: Accessories for Living

 I recently left one of Barrington’s hottest new apparel and gift boutiques with a major retail therapy rush and a list of the top 10 new items in the store that they call “must-haves” for fall. If I were you, I’d run to Notice: Accessories for Living on Cook Street if you’re in the market for:  a.) a “little bit of sparkle”, b.) the “perfect pants” or c.) a perforated vegan leather dress that’s “celebrates your curves, is hot, very hot, and great for many occasions”.
We’re excited to welcome Notice:  Accessories for Living as the newest member of the Barrington Online Marketplace here at
We’ll be sharing their Top 10 “Must Haves” list in a moment, but first, here’s a quick look at how our Marketplace works…

Notice:  Accessories for Living opened in Barrington this past May.  The Barrington location is the third in this series of family-owned Notice boutiques run by by mom, Mari Barnes and her two daughters, Hannah and Becky.  They have two additional Notice locations in Evanston and Lake Geneva.
I caught up with Hannah and Becky to find out about the store’s latest inventory and they shared their favorite new items for fall.  Hannah, who manages the Barrington store,  told me one of the highlights at Notice is that they work hard to keep their inventory fresh.
“Everything is constantly changing with new scarves, new gloves, great fall pieces, winter items and spring merchandise which will be here before you know it.”
Becky says they’ve learned a lot about what Barrington shoppers want since opening this past spring and are introducing new products based on local customer feedback.
“The Barrington shopper loves feminine designs.  They like to be on-trend, with put-together looks that are very fashion-forward, but done in a sophisticated and ladylike way.”
So, without further delay, here’s the list of Notice’s “Top 10 Must Haves for Fall”, complete with explanations from Becky about why these items are great as gifts and made for any wardrobe.  (But hands off my perforated vegan leather dress ;))……
