Fire up for Fall! It’s back to school season and we have all your needs from preschool to dorm room! Get ready for football season with personalized baseball caps for your school with rain boots to match!


Sending your son or daughter off to college can be made a little easier with some fabulous accessories to make sure they’re heading off in style! From shower caddies to blankets, we will make sure your student is all set with personalized items to give them a piece of home.


We love watching all the little ones head back to school as well and we have everything they need to be ready to tackle a new year! From notebooks to backpacks we will make sure they’re all set to show up to school and style. You can also add a monogram to almost any item for a personal flare (and so they don’t lose it).


One of the best parts about fall is that it’s never too early to get in the holiday spirit! Order your Christmas cards through our September sale to get 50% off and be sure that you’re all ready when the holiday season rolls around. It’s also never too early to start stocking up on all your Christmas essentials.

A New Happy (Colorful) Year!  We are so excited to see all the new possibilities for us this year.  We are busy looking for some fun new vendors that match all the "happy" colors and products we already have at NorthShore Boutique.

Today, is great day to wear your collegiate rainboots that you bought for yourself for Christmas or someone did for you.  Enjoy the rain -- it never looked so pretty while you are wearing these stylish boots!  If you still have the boots on your wish list -- today is the day to call!  Fire up! and Happy New Year!

Of course, all your gifts will arrive beautifully wrapped and delivered to your door in NorthShore Boutique fashion. We can’t wait to chat with you about your vision so we can help to make it come true.

Heating up for Fall

Time flies when you're having fun - we have SO many updates for you! The weather might be cooling down as fall is approaching, but North Shore Boutique is heating up! We are so excited to share our new fall line with our customers and to create perfect gifts and accessories for the crisp sweater-weather.

One of our absolute favorite new arrivals are these fabulous boots – a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes, and these fun, personalized beauties can be your go-to foot fashion this season. Pair them with our new cozy blanket scarf and your fall look is complete! We think it's the perfect attire to wear to those chilly football games, and we also have great coolers and bags to haul all of your game essentials. 

We’re also excited for fall because it means we can start getting ready for the winter holidays and all of the gifts that come with them. We’re going to be attending a few shows this season to show you our products – check out our show list to see if you can visit us. Can’t make it? No worries! We can also do events in your home. Call Sallie for availability at 847-250-1900.

We can’t wait to help you find (and wrap!) the perfect gift for everyone on your gift list this season. It’s our job to make sure you get AND give the most perfect gifts.  

We are always looking for gifts for you, so if you have any suggestions about items that NorthShore Boutique should carry, please let us know. We have some great things coming this winter too, so stay tuned! Until then, enjoy a pumpkin-spiced latte and have a FABULOUS day!

A New Year means New Opportunity!

It’s a new year at NorthShore Boutique and we are so excited to look for new and fabulous products to feature at our store this year. We had an outstanding show season, going all over the Midwest, from Milwaukee to Toledo and all over the Chicago area. We enjoyed every show we attended and loved meeting all of our new customers and catching up with our returnees!

This past year we were able to expand our vinyl and acrylic options and it seemed to be a hit! One of our most popular items was a bundle we created with a beverage tub, scoop and 4 wine glasses – all personalized in your favorite font and color. It is so fun to help guide our customers in their designs and deliver their gifts all packaged up and ready to go for Christmas and other holidays. 

As our most of our customers now know, one of our specialties at NorthShore Boutique is our packaging. We take pride in adding a special touch to your item you’ve purchased by adding a colorful ribbon, glitter and bow! We try to match the ribbon to your item and personality which always fun.

In 2016 we are hoping to expand our product line even further and we will be visiting gift shows and scouring new brands to make sure NorthShore Boutique stays fresh, fun and fabulous! 

Do you have something you think NorthShore Boutique should carry or make? Please let us know, we love hearing feedback from our customers!

June Update!

Fire Up Boutique Peeps!

Our summer is off to a fantastic start and we hope yours is as well. Can you believe it’s almost July? It seems like the weeks go faster and faster all the time. We just wanted to give you all an update on what’s been going on here at NorthShore Boutique headquarters.

On Thursday, June 18th we attended the inaugural Diamonds are Forever Boutique & Luncheon for Catholic Charities North Regional Services. It was a fantastic event for a great cause close to my heart and we were so excited to participate. There were over 200 guests at the sold out event and it was so much fun seeing some new faces as well as catching up with some long time NorthShore Boutique customers. The event was especially exciting because we were able to premier our new 4th of July items to get everyone ready for the holiday. The 4th is my favorite holiday of the year. I love how enthusiastically we celebrate our nation’s independence even after 239 years. I always feel a sense of pride thinking about all we’ve accomplished in that time and imagining everything we’re still going to do.

Not only were we able to attend the Diamond are Forever event, we were also featured during the fashion show. Our vibrant Scout bags were a huge hit with the crowd! So much so that we nearly ran out of the stock we brought with us. Thankfully, everyone who wanted a Scout bag was able to go home with one. I’d call that a successful day, wouldn’t you?

The store has been redesigned yet again, this time to showcase all our summer products. If you haven’t been yet or haven’t been in a while, I highly recommend setting up an appointment to see all our new products. Feel free to call us at 847-250-1900 or email and we’ll get something set up right away! Even though June is almost there’s still plenty of summer left to enjoy.

Have an OUTSTANDING day Boutique Peeps!


Springtime News

Fire Up Boutique Peeps!

 It’s only been a few weeks since we launched the website and big things are already happening! It’s hard to believe the amount of people who have already checked it out and where they’re coming from! I never expected we’d receive visitors from places as far flung as Turkey, Chile, Mexico, China, and closer to home here in the US!

 Since the unofficial start of summer has officially begun, we’re focusing our attention on products for fun in the sun! We’ve got monogrammed towels, vinyl wine glasses, customized drink cozies, and all the best hats. Graduation season is also in full swing and Summer Camps open in just a few weeks. Check out the catalogue page to see what’s available online or call/email to make an appointment in the store for an even larger selection of products!

 We recently had the opportunity to head out to New York City for the National Stationary Show and had a FANTASTIC time! It was so nice to see some of our vendors, preview upcoming products, and meet so many new and interesting people. There are tons of outstanding new products coming out soon that we can’t wait to show you!

 In June, we’ll be a vendor at the Catholic Charities North Region Diamonds Are Forever Luncheon & Boutique at the Westmoreland Country Club (2601 Old Glenview Road, Wilmette, IL). The exact date is June 18th and the event is open from 9am – 3pm. Tickets are $60 and include shopping and a noon Luncheon & Informal Fashion Show. If you’ve got the time, please stop by and say hello! Visit to register.

I think that’s everything for now, there are a few customers coming by the store in a little while so I need to go get ready for that. A returning customer is bringing some friends so hopefully we’ll get a few more Boutique Peeps today! J

Have an OUTSTANDING rest of your day!


Welcome To Our New Website!!!

By Sallie Nyhan

How we doin’ Boutique Peeps? Welcome to the NorthShore Boutique website!

We’ve been working diligently over the last few months to get this website up and running. Our goal is to connect with our customers in a fun new way. We want this website to be somewhere you can come to find out about our products, shows, and special promotions. I’ll also be writing new blog posts periodically talking about what’s going on with the store and fun ways I’ve found to use the NorthShore Boutique products.

For those of you who have been shopping with us over the last year, you’ll notice we’ve changed our name. After a lot of thinking we’ve decided that NorthShore Invitation Station no longer reflected who we are. While we still carry them, we’re more than just invitations and stationary, we’re a place where our customers can come and get gifts for any occasions, where they can decorate their homes and themselves. We wanted our name to reflect all of who we are and NorthShore Boutique does just that.

Coming up this season we’ve got some OUTSTANDING new products and patterns. Spring and Summer 2015 is all about adding a twist to the traditional. This season my favorite pattern is “Toil Aboard” from Scout. You can carry around some of the most iconic sites from Washington D.C. and London and impress all your friends with how well traveled you are. Or are pretending to be J. My favorite product right now is our yoga mat. I love doing yoga and having a personalized monogrammed mat makes it very easy to stand out in a crowd. I think my instructor gives me more attention just because she can see my mat anywhere in the room. Also, we know that wedding shower season is right around the corner, and we have some fabulous stationary that will make your invitations pop!

I think I’ll end here for now. Don’t want to throw too much information your way at one time. I’m so glad you came by the website. A special heartfelt thank you to RJ who put this website together. To Diane, who keeps us all on track with her attention to detail. And to my husband, Jeff, who gave me the gentle push to explore my passion for color and personalization – Thank you! Please take a peek and check it out.

Fire up Boutique Peeps!
