Psst: Here’s How to Get Free Childcare While You Shop

For some much-deserved “you time.”

Main Line moms, we’ve got the best news for you. Between bundling up the little ones against the cold, impossibly short attention spans, and a few inevitable tears, shopping with the kids can be a stressful occasion. That’s why Skirt Boutique’s owner (and mom of three boys) Maureen Doran is giving you one of the best presents you’ll receive this holiday season: some free time. 

This Black Friday, and every Wednesday in December, drop off your little ones at Play Cafe across the street from Skirt, where staff will help them make a holiday craft and have a blast in their private playroom. All you have to do is present your Skirt receipt when you pick the kids up, and Skirt will pick up the childcare bill. How amazing is that?
