University Village Review
Make a beeline here for fabulous upscale shopping and good restaurants in a pretty, outdoor, tree- and fountain-laden shopping "village." You can have your fill of chains like Williams-Sonoma, Banana Republic, L'Occitane, Hanna Andersson, Crate & Barrel, Sephora, Aveda, Restoration Hardware, H&M, Madewell, Apple, Anthropologie, Coach, and Kiehl's. If you get enough of that at home, however, there are a few unique gems among the batch, including the excellent Village Maternity Store, candy wonderland The Confectionery, and local artsy chain Fireworks. Note that parking here is a nightmare, and the atmosphere is slightly snobby. If you're in the mood to brave it, go immediately to the free parking garage, even if it means you have to walk farther.
