7 Tips for a Stylish and Cool Memorial Day Weekend

With Memorial Day Weekend the unofficial launch of summer, we've come up with some tips to make it cool and stylish and possibly somewhat unexpected. Cheers to Summer Days ahead!

7. Listen to music underneath the stars. The 
Omaha Symphony will be giving a free concert at Playland Park in Council Bluffs on Sunday, May 24th at 7pm.

6. Stop and smell the roses. If pruning these fragrant beauties isn't your thing, then we recommend you get 
Diptyque's Rose Geranium candle at Trocadero and bring its heady scent into your home.
5. Break out the whites. We love wearing our white jeans year-round. If you don't have a pair we suggest you head out to 
Delure at Rockbrook Village to see their assortment from Joe's and J Brand. Just don't wear them with white shoes or you just might be mistaken for an 80s tribute band member.
4. Go topless. By that we mean schedule a test drive of a Mini Cooper Convertible. What's more fun than cruising around with the top down? The Mini Cooper is not only cute as a button but you'll get amazing mileage and that's something to consider now that gas prices seem to be going up-up-up again!
3. Add some hummus and kebabs to your BBQ weekend. Recently we ate at Juba, a Sudanese restaurant around Nicholas and NW Radial Hwy. Bare-bones but serving flavorful dishes (goat, anyone?) including a delicious tilapia as well as a refreshing spiced iced tea.
2. Open the windows. With nighttime temperatures hovering around 60 degrees, it's the perfect, natural air-conditioning for a delightful night's rest.
1. Get your shoe on! It's definitely sandal season and at Trocadero we have a great selection of fun, casual flat sandals. Mention this Troc Talk post and receive 20% off any spring sandal. Buy 2 or more pairs and we'll also give you 40% off the lower-priced pair. But hurry as
this special is only valid this Mem
orial Day weekend!  (And please note we are closed on Memorial Day Monday and our usual Tuesdays.) This offer cannot be combined with any other special promotion.
