Dropped in to Emma Jane's last week and got an adorable outfit for my son for a great deal! They have a terrific toy room as well.

I also dropped by Emma Jane's last week and got some amazing deals for my two daughters. A lot of their "summer" outfits can definitely run into the fall too, but are still on sale because they are considered "summer". And the shoes are adorable! They were 25% off, plus the TSP discount made them 50% off. Not too shabby! And the owner was SO helpful and really sweet. Oh, and there is an awesome room for your kids to run around in and play. First time I was able to "shop" with a 4 1/2 year old AND 1 year old in tow.

Just visited the store for the first time and couldn't have been happier with the service and child friendly store. We found more shoes than we needed and thanks to the smarty pants discount, paid a ridiculously good price for them! Go if you can, I may make it back for tax free weekend!!
