Apricot Lane

Apricot Lane opened in the Triangle last week, and I was able to attend their grand opening.  On the way to the event, I was drinking some chocolate milk (random, I know) and spilled it all over my top.  Do you see that shirt?  It's white.  Thank goodness for baby wipes and my car heater.  When I pulled up to North Hills (a beautiful shopping center), I saw a parking spot across the road, and with a 20 point turn, I was in!!  Yay for me being the worst parker in the history of all drivers.  The grand opening was just great.  Catered by Ruth's Chris (I was the one in the corner shoveling in food), I enjoyed a lovely fashion show, shopping, and chat time with my friends Mary Catherine and Angela.  The owners and employees at Apricot Lane are so incredibly nice and their selection is fantastic.  Go like their FB page and give them a visit!
