My Messy Mom Life: 10.6.21
It’s that time of year when giving a little bit to an incredible organization creates great savings for you—it’s the annual Glennon Card shopping event! For just $60, you can save 20% at more than 270 places around town and online over 10 days—all while supporting SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we gave our Amazon accounts a little break and shopped locally? We could get ahead of things for the holidays, support some truly amazing businesses in our city and help fund efforts that save thousands of children’s lives.
I am so excited to be spreading the word about the Glennon Card this year and wanted to highlight some spots participating that may be fun for a little moms’ day out or early Christmas shopping. Here are a few of my faves on the list, all conveniently located in the Colonial Marketplace off
Blown Away Blow Dry Bar: Owned by a mother and daughter, this salon provides the best blow outs for all of your events this season, especially if you’re attending dances and weddings. I think I can speak for everyone when I say dressing up after over a year at home has never felt so good.
Ylang Ylang: Every holiday, birthday, anniversary and random argument, I name drop Ylang Ylang to my sweet husband. It also is a mother-and-daughter-owned business with truly the most unique and exquisite jewelry around. I have a custom name necklace with all three of my kids’ names on it and it’s one of my most treasured possessions.
Splash St. Louis: This place is near and dear to my heart because it is where I had my first job as a teenager. It’s a family-owned business, and I know the owners take exceptional care and pride in finding on-trend clothes for their shoppers. When you walk in, it’s a rainbow of fabulous colors.
Marmi Shoes: Brand-new to Colonial Market, this store is every girl’s dream come true: floor to ceiling shoes.
Ivy Hill: This adorable boutique offers the most unique and adorable finds. It’s all curated by the owner Hilary, who is the kindest and sweetest. My mom and I love to shop this store.
Dominic Michael Salon: I am headed here soon for a total hair makeover, and I could not be more excited.
Women’s Exchange: Did you know this treasure of a boutique is a nonprofit organization? Did you also know you can do curbside delivery for their world famous salad? It’s the best of the best,and my go-to catering order for any shower I throw. Be sure to stop in for lunch and the cutest kids clothes of all time.
This list is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the places that offer savings through the Glennon Card. So grab your sister, grab your mom, grab your bestie and head to Colonial Marketplace to shop 20% off with your Glennon Card this October. Head to glennoncard.org for more details.
