To help support busy frontline medical personnel and first responders during the COVID-19
crisis, Skylark Dry Cleaning is offering free wash and fold services. This includes free pickup
and delivery to your home!  We figure these folks have enough on your plate these days, so this is our way of eliminating one little chore and making your days a little easier.

A Note To Our Customers (Updated 3/27/2020)

Mar 27, 2020

Skylark is open for business, including both our store and Metro-Wide free delivery service.  As a Critical Sector, laundry and dry cleaning services continue to operate while the stay at home order is in place (see the full text of the 3/25/2020 Minnesota Executive Order here).  We have made the following temporary adjustments to our services.

  • Delivery Service: We continue to run our normal delivery service schedule.  However, due to reduced demand, we are asking all scheduled customers to call or email us if they have pickups.  You can schedule a pickup by calling 612-379-2532 or emailing, or via your online account.
  • Skylark’s Store: Our store is open from 7-5 Monday thru Friday and 9-4 on Saturdays.  As an abundance of caution, all store customers are asked to use our drive thru.  Our 24-hour self-serve kiosk is also open. 
  • Want to Switch to Delivery or Self Serve Kiosk?: If you are a store customer interested in either free home delivery or our 24-hour self service kiosk, please let us know and we will get you set up.  New customers can also sign up at

Please know that Skylark is taking all necessary precautions to assure the safety of our customers and employees, including social distancing and frequent cleaning and sanitizing of our work areas.  

Stay safe, stay healthy, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Keeping Linens Looking Their Holiday Best

Dec 26, 2017

At the many family dinners, festive parties, and neighborhood open houses this holiday season, you want your table to look perfect. Many linens are special, especially when they are gifts or heirlooms handed down from generation to generation. But unfortunately, even on holidays, people have "accidents" and spill food and drinks. As a result, knowing how to properly care for your linens becomes especially important.
