Whether you’re looking for a cozy cardigan, a warm knit beanie, or a stylish mask, Penelope’s has it. The neighborhood boutique was launched nearly 20 years ago by a husband and wife who wanted to make an array of high-quality pieces accessible to everyone. That’s why the carefully crafted apparel is always reasonably priced.
Another cornerstone of Penelope’s philosophy is that fashion should be fun. Expect bold tones and whimsical prints when you shop here, alongside some more muted, classic pieces. For instance, you might find a cozy cream-colored sweater that will go with just about anything alongside a baby’s lounge set emblazoned with bananas. If you have a special occasion coming up, check out the selection of cute greeting cards and gifts—such as tea towels featuring famous Chicago structures.
