One doesn't have to be a rock lover or a hippie from the 1970s to like the Lucky Brand Jeans. The outlet opened its doors to Albertans at the new Cross Iron Mills in Rocky View.

The styles at Lucky Brand are not only affordable, but a welcome addition to the fashion environment in Alberta.

This is a great, child-friendly store that teaches as it astounds, which is the best way to learn. There are, of course, the ubiquitous Beanie Babies (with quite a large selection by the way) as well as numerous colorful mobiles for hanging on the ceiling, or over a crib. There are also bird feeders, wind chimes and specialty cards. But the real treasures involve their huge selection of excellent educational games.

For those with teenagers there are also interesting puzzles, toys and CDs.
