“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.”


Dawn Skoien

I LOVE Lake Forest & I ADORE Fashion! I started working in a woman’s clothing store when I was sixteen. During my twenties, I worked right here in beautiful, historic Market Square as the Woman’s Apparel Manager at our own Marshall Field’s.

Fast Forward through raising 3 ‘Fashion Loving’ daughters in Lake Forest to today and now. I am working at The Lake Forest Shop and I couldn’t be more excited to connect with dear friends and be a part of such a wonderful team!
The Lake Forest Shop is a one of a kind shopping experience in this busy hectic world we find ourselves living in. The LFS has an unparalleled legacy of customer service. Ellen Stirling has curated a selection of designers and brands that I know you will love. Right here in Market Square, one of a kind gowns and special occasion dresses are created daily. I look forward to sharing my love of fashion with friends here at the Lake Forest Shop.

Many of you have busy lives, from the boardroom and charity galas to wonderful trips and vacations! Many of us are quickly becoming Mother’s of the Bride or Groom, and the list goes on and on! I look forward to seeing you by appointment or as you are strolling by.

I couldn’t be more delighted and proud to be working at The Lake Forest Shop.
