Sara Saferstein, a local woman with years of retail experience, snapped up the former Monique Lhuillier space at 50th & France for A La Mode, a luxury nail spa and gift boutique. Manicures start at $25; pedicures at $40. Memberships are available, with discounts for frequent customers. No acrylics—a la Mode prides itself on being chemical free. The product area is stocked with a smattering of upscale gifts and accessories, including jewelry, candles, pillows, and pajamas.
