The Village of Rochester Hills will be all aglow on Friday night; who should flip the switch?
It takes a special someone - or group of someones - to turn on 850,000 lights. That's what's happening Friday night at the annual lighting of the Village of Rochester Hills. The event will feature a parade, music, a toy drive and, of course, Santa. It's a tradition in the city of Rochester Hills, and Rochester Patch wants to help the city and the Village find the perfect special guest to join in the excitement. Patch wants to know: Who should light the Village of Rochester Hills, and why? Post a comment here and make a suggestion. Maybe it's a family that helps out in the community; maybe it's a school club or sports team that's had an amazing year. Or, it could be an individual who has an amazing story to tell. Think about that perfect …

Everything at Apricot Lane is 20 percent off to celebrate the grand opening.
Apricot Lane, a boutique described as a "mom and daughter" destination, opened its first Michigan store on Thursday morning at The Village of Rochester Hills. The shop carries fashion and accessories you won't see anywhere else, said owner Jennifer Braner of Fort Wayne, who grew up in Ortonville and picked Rochester Hills for its first Michigan destination because of the trend factor. "We try to be fashion-forward and trendy, and when we were looking around at where to open in Michigan, we knew this was the place," Braner said. "We only carry five or six of any particular piece, so when it's gone, it's gone. This is a great place for moms and daughters to shop together, because we have things for 16-year-olds up to 65-year-olds." …

If the streets of Rochester Hills seem strangely light on the minivans this week, it's probably because they're all parked at The Village, where Hot Mama opened Wednesday.
There was such a crowd at Hot Mama on Wednesday (the day it opened its first Michigan store at The Village of Rochester Hills) it was hard for me to believe there was anyone left to tell about it. The place was packed with mamas, strollers and kids. In fact, if you closed your eyes it kind of had the buzz of a very successful play date, complete with animal crackers. The right toys — Play Station 3 and Legos — were there to keep the junior shoppers happy and entertained. And the right clothes — trendy, fun but right for all moms — were there to make a shopping mama feel like she died and went to fashion heaven. Oh, yes, and it's all at 10 percent off for opening week! Let's face it, ladies, somewhere between ages 20 and 40, in a place …

Here's a look at more changes ahead for the outdoor shopping center.
Two stores that traditionally catered to teenagers at the Village of Rochester Hills are being replaced with two trendy boutiques that will attempt to attract their older sisters — and moms. Abercrombie & Fitch and abercrombie closed last month. Hot Mama and Apricot Lane, two rapidly expanding shops that feature trendy and designer clothing and accessories for women, will open in their spots this spring. The changes are part of the outdoor shopping area's focus in this, its 10th year, on moms. "It's our 10-year anniversary, and we are looking for new and exciting things to bring into the Village," said Shelleen McHale, the Village's marketing director. "We really have been looking at who our consumer is, and we found they are moms and …

The Minnesota-based store will open its first Detroit-area location this spring at the Village of Rochester Hills.
Hey, Rochester moms: your spring wardrobe shopping just got a lot more fun! The Village of Rochester Hills announced that Hot Mama will be opening this spring.
