  • March of Dimes Celebrates 75th Anniversary

    March of Dimes will celebrate its 75th anniversary at Thursday’s Signature Chefs Auction Dallas. To commemorate 75 years of stronger, healthier babies, there will be a surprise package auctioned by chef Kent Rathbun. A special tribute will honor longtime volunteers Leonard and Pauline Graivier for their nearly 50 years of service to March of Dimes. The 2013 Ambassador Family, Drs. Jennifer and Thomas Heffernan and their daughter Genevieve, will share their story during the Fund the Mission segment of the program. Genevieve was born about four months early, weighing only 15.3 ounces, and now is a thriving 5-year old thanks to the work of the March of Dimes.

  • Kelly Mitchell Fine Jewelry Brings Wow Factor

    Kelly Mitchell Fine Jewelry is open in The Shops of Highland Park.

    Kelly Mitchell Fine Jewelry is open in The Shops of Highland Park.

    You know the feeling — you walk into a high-end jewelry store, and the stuffiness nearly consumes you. You have to dodge the judgmental glares of the salesperson deciding whether you’re worth their time or just another window-shopping vagrant.

    Forget those preconceived notions and prepare yourself for an entirely new way to shop at Kelly Mitchell Fine Jewelry’s new store at The Shops of Highland Park on Oak Lawn. Kelly has taken her years of experience in the jewelry industry to create what she believes to be the best kind of high-end shopping experience you could ask for.

    The new shop was designed to be less like a snobbish store and more like a salon, where each associate caters to the individual and helps them find the perfect pieces that match their unique style. Kelly has foregone the typical jewelry display cases that seem too closed off for her, opting for a much more open floor plan where associates can mingle with the customers on their treasure hunts.
