89 Vic No Start

My mother in law's 89 vic decided to leave her stranded at the grocery store tonight. The car drove fine all day, and when she went to leave from the grocery store, she turned the key and nothing happens. She has no headlights, tail lights, dash lights, dome light etc... Turns the key and its dead silent. When the tow truck gets it home, I'm going to start with the obvious and check the battery and cable connections. Can anyone think of anything else I should look for? Never had any issues with this car in the year that she's had it, and if I remember correctly, the battery is only a month or 2 old....
