Farewell, winter, and hello, spring! Welcome April with an outing to one of these three fantastic local events: celebrate Easter at the Memphis Botanic Garden family egg hunt, walk the red carpet with Kristin Davis at the Malco Paradiso or enjoy an evening of beer tasting fun at the Brooks. What should you wear to these spring celebrations? We have you covered with a little help from Kittie Kyle in Chickasaw Oaks Village, Lansky 126 downtown and Joseph in the Laurelwood Shopping Center.

EVENT: Memphis Botanic Garden’s Family Egg Hunt — Saturday, April 4
