When style means more than shopping (but that’s a must too) head on over to Chestnut Hill Square where you can style yourself from head to toe. One of Boston’s best lifestyle Centers, Chestnut Hill Square has a little something for everyone in a town square environment that offers plenty of parking.
Start with your body by booking yourself a class at Soul Cycle where you’ll be bouncing to the beats and getting a high spirit, full body workout without hopping off your bicycle. Take advantage of the on-site showers, complete with soap, shampoo, toiletries, hair dryers and towels, then dress yourself in something other than sweats to move on with your day.
Pop on over to Drybar where their cocktail inspired hair styles will have you looking fresh and fabulous. Their expert hair styling mavens will wash and blow your locks to perfection. They’ll even straighten or curl for no additional fee. Freshly coifed, head out for a bit of shopping at the high demand retailers who call Chestnut Hill Square home.
Favorites like White House Black Market, Francesca’s and Anthropologie have stores set up to provide you with an experience you won’t find just anywhere. Home to one of the few Anthropologie retail stores offering their bridal line, you can find the dress to make your special day perfect (or score one of their bridesmaid dresses to wear to a cocktail party, this line really can do double duty) as well as enjoy the eclectic housewares and everyday fashion inside.
Once you’ve filled you shopping bags to the brim, it’s time for some sustenance and maybe even a cocktail or two. Check out Season 52 for a sit down experience with their fresh seasonal cuisine. The menu is calorie conscious ensuring you won’t toss your weight loss plan out the window with one meal. If your doing your day solo, have a relaxing drink and bite at their spacious bar. If you prefer to grab something quick and light then check out Sweet Green where the salads are simply superb.
If you find yourself in need of filling your own fridge before heading home, Wegman’s makes it easy. With a location right in Chestnut Hill Square, you can stay within this one property, fill your cart, then head home ready to face reality with a fresh outlook.
