Mannequins make wonderful pets because they quietly flaunt the latest fashions and don't need bones to love you unconditionally. Earn their ardor with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $30 worth of contemporary women’s apparel and accessories at Chocolate Peacock Boutique, which is located in Hilltop Plaza across from Rockbrook Village and east of 108th Street; look for the blue awnings.
Chocolate Peacock is devoted to stocking and selling the latest in contemporary women’s fashion, from event dresses and jewelry to casual everyday wear and dapper accessories. Dandify your soul sack for the autumn descent into cooler climes with your choice of hot fall trends, from shimmer and sequins to skinny cargo-pant leggings, military-inspired jackets, and faux fur. Casual apparel goes chic with a pair of jean leggings garnished with gold ankle studs ($38), or a pair of classic, skinny black stretch pants ($44). Keep officewear intriguing with a short, shimmery brown jacket ($62), or step it up a notch with Peacock’s wide array of affordable necklaces, chunky bracelets, double rings, and other vintage-inspired jewelry, ranging in price from $15 to $80. Dresses, from the subtle to the super-sequined, range from $75 to $200, with the majority hovering around the $100 mark. Accessories, including handbags, belts, and headbands, range from $25 to $100, and pull outfits together like a terrifying cartoon magnet drawing in your silverware through the television screen.
The boutique is itself a chunk of eye candy for the discerning shopper. Soft green-and-white walls painted with stylized peacock feather decals offset rich brown wood floors and glossy furnishings, while racks of clothing and accessories add to the aesthetic appeal. As the shop is locally owned and operated by the pleasantly alliterative Chaley Chandler, an Omaha native, customers can expect a friendly shopping experience with a personal touch and attentive service. Peruse the Chocolate Peacock to find the ideal dress for an upcoming fall formal, a big interview at an impossibly tiny micro-office, or a live-action role-playing game about stylish but otherwise normal people.
