Our most anticipated sale of the year is almost here! That’s right, its time for Allegro Barrington’s Annual Sidewalk Sale! We’re even more excited than usual because the Village of Barrington is really going all out for this event. This year’s revamped Sidewalk Sale is hosted by the 105.5 STAR radio station and is set in a more festival-like atmosphere. That means more vendors, discounts, artisans and local crafters and probably snacks. Everyone needs snacks while they shop!

Our sidewalk sale is our biggest sale of the entire year! Outdoor merchandise will be 25%-80% off (you read that right; up to 80% off!) and there are even chances to win discounts on full-priced merchandise indoors.

imageFor Barrington High School Orchesis dancers and supporters, spring season means it’s time for the BHS Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser, attended by over 400 people each year. The Allegro Barrington store has both BHS Orchesis dancers and alumni on staff, and we feel honored to support the continued growth of their program, led by Nancy Creswell. Each year, BHS Orchesis provides an outstanding dance education and performance experience for its dancers by inviting professionals from the Chicago dance community and beyond to give master classes and set work on their dancers. This year they did an Aerial piece, co-sponsored The Giordano Project alongside Giordano Dance Chicago, and produced two student choreographed shows, among other things.
We’re thrilled to have been asked to be a part of the luncheon and fashion show event. Dressed in a little bit of everything we offer, BHS dancers were seen in Allegro active wear, leotards, leggings, tutus and warm-up apparel. The dancers looked great as they walked (and danced!) the runway.


FullSizeRenderAlways fans of shopping and supporting other small local businesses, we were excited to see our neighbors, Grassroots and One Girl, showcasing some of their amazing spring/summer collections (the perfect pieces for an outdoor music festival…and we did just buy our Lollapalooza tickets…). It was great to see Heads Up (our neighbor across the tracks) featuring some clothing in addition to the awesome accessories they have (think an afternoon aboard a fancy yacht on Lake Michigan). Other local Barrington boutiques, Tru Bleu and Savvy Spirit, had that perfect dressy casual look, ideal during warm summer months. Larger stores, Francesca’s Collection and Anthropologie showcased looks in the show as well! The afternoon was full of raffles (we won some!!), silent auctions and jewelry giveaways, good food, fashion and fundraising for a great organization. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon if you ask us! We’re already planning for next year.
