Green Spring Station is partnering with Baltimore STYLE Magazine for their second annual, oh-so-mah-velous Style at the Station event on Thursday. The perfect reason to grab your gal pals and play hookie from mommy life for a shopping mini escape.

Here’s why I think this is a ‘must’ for any mom, fabulous aunt, friend, grandmother’s sister or second cousin’s girlfriend who reads this blog:

10) Shopping. Fabulous shopping. TONS of deals from all of your fav Green Spring Station boutiques. Enough said.

9) Pick up some fabulous spring fashion tips from Stephanie from Bradshaw Styling (have you checked out her blog, Girl About Town?) and Heidi Slacum, the fashionista behind FRESH! Boutique. As you may have guessed, they’ll be giving out the tips at FRESH! The boutique will be hosting a Julie Brown Trunk Show that day, too. Check out her summer collection ahead of time!

8) It’s Misha & Co.’s debut! The jewelry store has new digs at the Station. Swing by and say hi!

7) My summer shoe selection needs some serious attention. Yours does too? Matava Shoes is having a Cole Haan Trunk Show as part of the April 14th festivities. Sweet. (PS – did you know that you can buy from them online now, too?)

6) Your bottle of Sérum Oléo-Relax from Kérastase is low — or you don’t own it. I swear by the stuff. And UNO The Salon is giving a 15% discount on all of their products. They just so happen to carry Kérastase.

5) Spring holidays are fast approaching and you just realized you have 3 graduation parties, 6 mothers day presents to buy (your mom, your mother in law, and all the grandmas in your life), three wedding showers and your best friend is having a baby. Forget about the gifts for a second – – that means CARDS for everyone. The Pleasure of Your Company will have all of your stationary needs covered — plus 20% off of Scout by Bungalow, Cat Studio, MacBeth Collection, Graphic Image, Anna Griffin fabric collection, Lily Pulitzer and Jonathan Adler.

4) Live music. And the potential to nosh on the seared scallop appetizer and a bellini with your girlfriends at Tark’s Grill. {{Note: DO ask for the bellini. You won’t regret it.}}

3) Amazing giveaways at many of the boutiques. Who doesn’t love something for free?

2) Wee Chic – A Baby Boutique is hosting trunk shows by Splendid AND Ella Moss — two of this mom’s favorite kid lines. Join Christy & Beth from the New York Showroom of Splendid and Ella Moss kids to preview and preorder your favorites from the July/August deliveries from these two iconic lines. Plus, Bridget is handing out mimosas and treats. Delish.

And the NUMBER ONE REASON TO ATTEND…

1) I can’t go. I’ll be out of town for work and need to live vicariously through all of you!

Green Spring Station has a full list of events/deals/giveaways affiliated with Style at the Station on their website. The fun happens this Thursday (April 14th) from 10 AM – 8 PM. Those of you who aren’t up for playing hookie can leave the kids with the hubs and get your shopping on after work.

If you go, be sure to tell me all about it! Would love for you to upload pics to our facebook page, too.
