What’s New at MOA

I haven’t been to the Mall of America since my store closed 5 months ago. After spending 6 years there, I needed a break! Yesterday, I decided it had been long enough and went to see what was new at MOA.

The right bracelet makes all the difference

My first stop was the new store Superdry. Superdry is a very popular mens and womens retailer in Europe and is now making it’s way Stateside. The Mall of America location is one of nine in the States and the only one in the midwest. The store manager, Shannon, is one of the best when it comes to customer service and her staff is equally as passionate as she is. Superdry is a mix of preppy and trend, and their jacket collection is just what we need in Minnesota.

The remodeled Gap is just lovely. It’s more like a boutique and I found it much easier to shop. They are running a pant and jean promotion-buy one, get one 50% off.

I can always find something at Urban Outfitters! I just love the store manager, Sydney. She has the best energy and it is infectious. Urban has a little bit of everything and is like a treasure hunt. Love this jacket-

I really found my heart’s desire at H&M. I find this store very hit or miss, but they have some great fall items now. I think it’s no secret I have a love for faux-fur and this jacket is the one!!

A little info from a birdie-MOA will be opening at midnight Black Friday. Don’t know if it’s rumor or not, but if you love the craziness and early bird shopping, I’d keep my eyes open for an upcoming announcement. So glad I don’t work there anymore-I could not do a midnight shift!!

Sunday afternoon at Lake Calhoun

What a glorious afternoon for a walk around Lake Calhoun. We are so lucky to live in a city that has such a beautiful chain of lakes. And have you tried Tin Fish Restaurant? Located at 3000 East Calhoun Parkway-right on the water-this gem offers great food and great views of the lake and the skyline. The menu offers everything from tacos, fish sandwiches, chowders and soups to sweet treats. But hurry! Tin Fish is only open through mid October.
