Sonic open in Willow Grove (and a coupon!)

A new cool fast-food restaurant to our area -- Sonic, "America's Drive-In" -- has been open for a few weeks on Easton Road. We hear it's been packed with people since opening.

Though I have never been to a Sonic, I hear that it's decent food and fun for adults and kids. I also hear there are some more options for picky eaters here.

Check it out, and click here for a coupon for a free Sonic burger when you buy one.

Old Navy: Great deals at Jenkintown, Grand Opening in Willow Grove

Did you know that the Old Navy on Old York Road in Jenkintown is closing this month? A brand-new, huge Old Navy will be opening up right outside of the Willow grove mall.

I went to the Jenkintown Old Navy this week and there were AMAZING deals to be found. I bought about 20 items, all priced between $.99 and $2.50. (Most of the store is 75% off!) I got some summer stuff as well as fall stuff (sweat pants, long sleeved shirts, a jean jacket for me, jeans for Mike, etc) Two big bags later filled with great stuff for my family, I felt great spending $40 total! It's definitely worth a trip, but items are going fast and the store is closing in a week or so.

The new store, which is at 2510 West Moreland Rd (where the old Circuit City used to be, next to Dick's Sporting Goods) is part of Old Navy's "Beautification Project" and is one of their new and redesigned stores for 2010 (The only one is PA to be redesigned). They are having a Grand Opening Party next weekend, on July 31st. Doors open at 9am. They are giving away some awesome prizes:

  • $500 shopping spree
  • $200 shopping spree
  • Old Navy famous jeans or
  • Graphic tees
To be eligible to win one of these prizes, you need to be one of the first 200 people to visit the new store. The first 200 people will be given a wrist band or ticket. Each person with a wrist band or ticket will receive a prize!

Have fun!

ps. If you visit the Jenkintown store, make sure you pick up a coupon for the new store ($10 off a purchase of $50 or more, on Saturday July 31st only)

Very excited about new fall shopping!

Yesterday I had an amazing shopping day for two reasons:
1. It was the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I got some amazing deals and
2. I was able to order an amazing amount of new jewelry from the new Stella & Dot fall collection, which launched yesterday. (Yes, shameless self-promotion to come. But after all, this is my blog!)

Ladies (and men)... you need to go. Fall and winter items at 33% off, and amazing styles to choose from! The sale goes from now through August 2nd, and it is not to be missed. (Family promotion: should you go, ask for my step-brother Jay Eisenberg or his fiance Heather Wright to help you! They are fabulous and knowledgeable!)  If for some reason you can't get there, check out the items online!

Stella & Dot:
Some of you may know that in April I started a new business as a stylist for Stella & Dot, an amazing, trendy, incredible jewelry company. Yesterday their gorgeous fall/winter line was launched, and I was like a kid on Christmas (or at least what I think a kid on Christmas would feel like!) picking out all of my new jewels.

Please, check out the new look book and let me know your thoughts! I love the collections which range from Metro-chic, to vintage luxe, pieces that can easily go from day to night, and so much more.

(And here comes the REAL shameless promotion...) If you want to be one of the first of your friends to host a fall trunk show, and you book in August or Sept, I am giving $25 gift certificates to be used at your show. Woo hoo! More free beautiful jewelry on top of the hundreds that most of my hostesses get. Email me to book your show!

Some nice specials at Trax Cafe!

I really like Trax in Ambler. Every time I eat there I really enjoy the food and atmosphere... plus it is around the corner! I think it is time to go back soon, especially now that Trax is offering three nice promotions right now!

They are now offering a 3-course prix fixe dinner including a Trax house salad, choice of 4 specially-prepared entrees (Penne Portobello with Pesto; Veal Sirloin, Picatta; Pan Seared Pork Tenderloin with Seasonal Salsa or Oven Roasted Tilapia Scampi) and their freshly-baked dessert du jour. It is available on Tuesdays through Fridays from 4:30 - 6 p.m. for $24.95 per person, not including tax or gratuity. Great when you're hopping off the train, have a "tired-of-cooking" night or for a pre-theater dinner. Or a girls night out! Reservations needed: 215/591-9777 or online.

Trax is offering a sweet birthday gift for you! For your birthday, they'll send you an email good for a complimentary dessert at Trax Restaurant & Cafe. Just tell them your birthday and when your special day rolls around, you'll hear from them. You can redeem it any day that month. What a sweet way to celebrate!

Chef Waxman suggests pairing his Half Roasted Duck with 3 Berry Sauce with Wild Horse Pinot. The pairing works so well, in fact, that they're offering a complimentary glass of wine with every order of the Half Roasted Duck.

The 2008 Pinot from Wild Horse Winery in California has a lush mouth feel and enticing acidity. The aromas and flavors of fresh strawberries, forest floor and hints of vanilla from 100% oak aging make the wine an ideal partner for the crispy duck dish, with its blackberry, raspberry & blueberry sauce. Available while supply lasts.

Enjoy these specials!!!
