I am about to make somebody’s day.

Scratch that. Two people’s day.

My day was made the day I discovered Apricot Lane at the Shops at West End in St. Louis Park, MN. And now I get to share the love with a couple of you!

I honestly fell in love with the shop – and the owner, Kristine, and her staff couldn’t have been nicer.

Though Apricot Lane is a nationwide company, each location is individually owned and purchases are made locally.

You’re going to love what they’ve purchased! There’s everything from the fun night-on-the-town ensemble, to hanging-at-home comfies, and work-out-wear that’ll inspire you to actually work out. And there are accessories, shoes, and bags to go with it all.

Plus, so many of the items available are from companies that give back, like bracelets from Good Works and from 3 Strands, so you can feel good about the shopping you’re doing.

And now a couple of lucky Wild Ruffle readers are going to be able to experience Apricot Lane for FREE, and make over your closet just in time for the holidays! Wanna know what you could win?

One lucky reader will win $100 gift card to spend in the store. But wait – there’s more! In addition to the gift card, you’ll also receive Stylin Tape by Bristol 6, Apricot Lane Roller Parfum, and a Dye Ties hair tie AND headband. Pretty good right?

A second winner will be chosen via the Apricot Lane Facebook page, and will receive a $10 gift card to spend in the store, as well as Flipped Bird stretchy hair ties and headbands stuffed in an eco-friendly jar and an Apricot Lane Roller Parfum.

Read on for more details.

  1. You know that time, after you have just had a baby, and nothing fits right?! I am there and in desperate need of a closet overhaul! I am feeling motivated and inspired to get in shape again and I know some new clothes will help. Thanks for the offer!

    1. I hear you Jacquelyn. After having a baby is the PERFECT time to have a closet overhaul. Not to mention the need and drive to want to dress up and feel like you again. Good luck, I hope you win!

  2. I want to enter my sister in law Brittany. She just got back from serving our country in the army for the past 10 years, including three deployments. She is now looking for a job and could definitely use this money for a new wardrobe. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway!

  3. I would love a $100 closet makeover from Apricot Lane because I love to support local and I am always shopping for the kids this would get me to shop for myself! 🙂

  4. I would love a closet makeover! As a mom of a toddler I don’t have time to shop for myself as much…this would be a fun treat! What a fun way to update my winter wardrobe!

  5. I would LOVE a closet make-over, because I feel like I have been holding on to clothes that I “hope” to fit back into, and are out of style now. Being a new stay-at-home mom, I want comfy clothes, that still look stylish!! I hope I win!

  6. I need some fashion in my life!! Winning a gift certificate combined with help from the staff at Apricot Lane might be the winning combination to get me out of my sweats and lookin like a hot mama!

  7. I adore the store – I have gone a couple of times, and found more than a couple of things to purchase. 🙂 Such a fun shop – and a great giveaway!

  8. Oh. So many reasons why I would love this! Two of the big ones are that I turn 30 in the New Year AND will be celebrating ten years of marriage to the love of my life! To bring in a new era of my life with some style would be wonderful!

  9. I nominate Mrs. Molly Lujan 🙂 I remember well how amazing and challenging it was to become a stay at home parent. More power to you Molly! I hope you win!

  10. I would love a new outfit for the holidays, but even more, just an excuse to get out of the house…alone! My hubby has been traveling nonstop this month and will be up until Christmas. I NEED some ‘me’ time! : )

  11. I would love a closet makeover b/c since having kids I’m so focused on them & their “closets” I forget to address mine!

  12. Of course the irony is that Sweden was a united and peaceful nation before the truarotois so called political elite decided without reference to the Swedish people, to open the doors to the 3rd world scroungers and misfits.
