March is Women’s History Month!
While we surely empower women all year long, there is something special about taking intentional time to celebrate the progress and amazing contributions women have made in a variety of fields over the course of our nation’s history. One fun way to honor women this month and even going into the rest of the year is to shop from some of the many local women-owned businesses in Omaha. Here are just a few from multiple categories you can check out for yourself!
Clothing & Jewelry
Scout buys and sells modern and vintage clothing, committing to sustainable fashion. This groovy little shop is the perfect place to spend a Saturday afternoon if you're on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind, new-to-you addition to your closet!

If you love fresh juices, bowls, and smoothies, Ital Vital Living will be your paradise. Inspired by her Jamaican roots, founder Imani is passionate about providing healthy and sustainable options for everyone in her community. The Bob Marley smoothie is one of the most popular products, with beautiful layers of blended fruits and veggies!
Before you skim over this one just because it’s vegan, take a look at the photos of founder Isa’s incredible creations. With a second location in New York City, Modern Love is wildly successful for one reason: delicious food for herbivores and carnivores alike. My fave is the chickpea parm sandwich- and be sure to save room for dessert!
