Here at Mint Julep we try to create the most interesting and beautiful windows for you all to look at! This is one of my favorites. First we decide on a color scheme, then pick outfits representing an evening look, something office-appropriate, and a more casual everyday ensemble. Then we accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! (My favorite part). If you'd ever like us to create an outfit for you like the ones we place in the window, just ask- we have so much fun doing it!

Since it's too small to read, allow me to brag a bit... We were voted Favorite Boston Boutique by the readers of Lucky Magazine! Thanks guys! We're thrilled.
Town & Country, huh? We're so high brow now! Mint Julep Harvard Square was recognized as the best place to shop in Cambridge. Very, very exciting.
And this, my friends, is the national ad campaign for one of our favorite designers, 525 America. We are one of five featured retailers! We snipped this one out of InStyle magazine.

What a fun weekend in Harvard Square! The weather was perfect + everyone had a great time at Oktoberfest. The world's longest couch was right in front of Mint Julep, so we had a front row view of community lounging and at one point, people were doing the wave! I hate being left out, so I had to see for myself ...very comfy!
Isn't the Coolidge Corner store looking good? Our Brookline store is our first location and it is truly the heart of Mint Julep. I worked there this weekend and had the pleasure of catching up with many Mint Julep devotees. In fact, many of the ladies have been shopping with us since day one! We're thankful for all the support and friendship over the years. XOXO
