Chalk Boutique

  Owners Carrie Kane and Sharon Watrous built Chalk’s roster of designers with one woman in mind: She is feminine yet urban. She appreciates established designers while hungering for emerging talent.

That’s why Chalk’s line of apparel and accessories is not only well made. It’s every bit as thoughtful, creative, and beautiful as you are. Stroll down Central Street to shop Chalk’s sensibly glamorus array of: • Designer dresses and skirts • Dazzling boots and shoes • Handbags and accessories • Sweaters, blouses, and fashion-forward tops

Dame Couture

  If it were up to us, every wedding dress would be as lovely and unique as the bride who wears it. Now, they can! At Dame Couture, our goals are simple: to create an outfitting experience that is more down-to-earth and personal than traditional shops, and to ensure that North Shore brides are free to express their personalities instead of worrying about bridal trends (that is, unless they are the trendsetters!). We meet-and-greet with each bride who crosses our threshold—learning their style, getting to know their personality, and helping them to visualize the perfect wedding dress. Then we make their dream come to life by sewing our values of quality, individuality, and sustainability into every single garment. That’s how Dame Couture has become a bridal-wear staple in Evanston in the North Shore. From restyled classics to first-of-their-kind modern, we’ll always have the ideal garment for your specialist of occasions. And if we don’t, we’ll make it! • Customizable, made-to-measure dresses • Bridal gowns by independent designers • Vintage and restyled gowns • New & vintage accessories

Bluestone

You know that feeling….when you just want comfort and home? Familiar faces, tasty food that reminds you of Mom’s home cooking, and a friendly smile. Welcome to Bluestone! Your home away from home, we strive to give you a great experience everytime you walk in the door. Wanting to bring the Chicago style neighborhood restaurant to Evanston, Bluestone was the very first. Always family run it’s maintained that hometown feel. When you come into Bluestone and look up, you will notice there are over 250 pin flags from all over world. The flag collection was born from John’s love of the game that began at Peter Jan’s as a boy. He would take the L from Dempster to Central street with his friends from St. Mary’s School and hit the course. Fresh ingredients, menu variety, and affordable prices have always been standards. We take pride in our fresh fish, and daily specials. The sizzling burgers, paper thin pizza, smoked wings, and the legendary key lime pie have become staples on Central Street and beyond!
