The HerKentucky Louisville List: Pop-Up Shop

So, we have some rather big news at my house. We're moving back to Louisville this summer!

There is so much to love about the Commonwealth's biggest city. Over the next couple of months, I'll be packing up our stuff and the dogs and making plans to join my beau, who's already there. Here on HerKentucky, I'll be compiling The Louisville List, a series of posts that highlight my very favorite things about the Derby City: things like the food, the parks, the volunteer opportunities, and the awesome neighborhoods. Oh, and did I mention the shopping?

Well, the shopping is pretty great. Louisville is home to some amazing boutiques. The malls are, hands down, the best in Kentucky. (Don't get me started on how, in high school, I seized every opportunity to travel the four hours from my hometown to Oxmoor Center, then boasted of my haul to my Benetton-deprived friends.) There's even the promise of a fancy new outlet mall. And, starting next week, will bring a unique pop-up shop to the East End. 

Y'all know, right? It's a flash-sale site for high-end clothing and home furnishings. You can find unique, luxurious items at a steal. Brands like Missoni, Vera Wang, Zac Posen, and  my imaginary BFFs Badgley Mischka. And now, for one month, they'll have their very first brick and mortar store. The fun starts next Friday, June 28, at The Shelbyville Road Plaza (4600 Shelbyville Road). I hope y'all can make it out to the Gilt Designer Outlet. In the meantime, here's your invitation to shop around on

I can't wait to re-discover one of my favorite cities, and I'm excited to do some shopping!
