Today is a bittersweet day for Park Style.
On the sugary side, there are quite a few promising events on the St. Louis Park retail horizon to chat about.
However, there is very little time to gab about them as this column—here comes the tart part—will be my last Patch contribution for the foreseeable future.
I'm donning black today, as I've just taken a writing position at another local publication and will thus no longer have time to spend my days shopping and chronicling SLP fashion happenings. Yes, woe is me.
While I'm excited about my new job, I've enjoyed navigating the blossoming St. Louis Park retail scene in this column and will miss sharing my great finds with Patch. Here are a few final gems that I don't think you want to miss:
