Party with MYKITA

Join us this weekend for the MYKITA trunk shows.

MYKITA creates minimal, functional and durable frames for both gentlemen and ladies.  Their collection spans from amazing sunwear to sophisticated eyewear that can take you anywhere. Come see the new you.

We love MYKITA!  Thirteen years ago when we opened Wink eyewear in Lawrence, we brought in this tiny collection from Berlin.  We were intrigued by the ingenious hinge design, the lack of screws, the super flexibility of the material and how incredibly comfortable they were.

MYKITA quickly proved to be our top selling collection and has remained at the top for over thirteen years.

Join us this weekend to see the entire new collection!

  • Friday in St. Joseph, 10am to 6pm.
  • Saturday in Lawrence, 11am to 6pm.
  • Enjoy a beverage and small bites whilst you browse this incredible collection from our favorite German eyewear powerhouse.
  • We will have door prizes, a drawing for special prizes (including a free pair of lenses in 2019,) and gifts with purchase.
  • Save $100 on every pair of lenses in a MYKITA frame purchased during the show.

It’s the largest and densest shopping event in Lawrence.  Hundreds of downtown businesses will take part in the Annual Sidewalk Sale next Thursday July 19th, but Wink eyewear holds our version of the Sidewalk Sale for five days instead of just one.  We put everything on sale not just a few things.  And we keep it inside where it’s cool not out on the hot sidewalk.

This year we are including our St. Joe location in the fun too!

Join us at either location during Sidewalk Sale week for a great deal on a new look.



Don’t have a current prescription?  Don’t Worry!

You can still take advantage of our Sidewalk Sale!  After you purchase your frame, we hold the order until you get a new eye exam.  You still get a great deal on your new frames and then see your optometrist when it’s convenient for you.




Wink Lawrence will open early for this year’s Sidewalk sale!  Stop in early to beat the heat and the crowds.

  • Sunday           12-4
  • Mon – Wed     11-7
  • Thursday        10-7




Wink St. Joseph will also be a part of the fun of this year’s Sidewalk sale!  Stop in early to beat the heat and the crowds.
