On top of being fun, this show is approachable and informative, giving attendees tidbits of information that can apply in their own closets or while shopping. We’re showcasing the best of Edina retailers and where to find the hottest new items for Spring,” Mayers said. That’s part of what makes the event really unique, Loberg says. It’s local, it’s personal, it’s useful and it’s fun. “We aren’t just sending models down the runway with music,” she explains. “Jodi provides helpful narration that guests can take away and implement in to their own wardrobes.” Travel Tip: Can’t make it to Style Edina for the weekend of April 13?
