La or Fab’rik. Find discounts on brands like Dolce Vita, Jimmy Choo, Miu Miu, Splendid, Seven for all Mankind, Rebecca Taylor, Lilly Pulitzer, Frye, J. Brand, Joe’s Jeans, Free People and much more.

For those lucky ones who can sneak away from work, the sale starts Friday at 10am. (Start scheduling your “coming in late for a doctor’s appointment” now, ladies.) There’s plenty of parking and lots of dressing rooms, but take note: CASH OR CHECK ONLY.

Ann Taylor’s New Concept Store

8 Jul

Ann Taylor is opening a concept store in Peachtree City this weekend, and we’re all invited. Yes, all of us. Even you, despite that embarrassing incident at the last party.


Join the brand on Saturday, July 9, for styling, music, refreshments, and 30% off your full-priced purchases. We’re assuming concept store means you get to see what’s potentially new for fall as well as other test products not available to the rest of the public yet, so this store might actually be worth the drive if you’re a fan of the brand. Book an appointment with a stylist by calling (770) 486-9889.

And no, for the record, it’s not too early to start shopping for fall.

Ann Taylor Concept store. 216 City Circle, Peachtree City. Party from 1pm to 5pm on Saturday.

Music Midtown Returns (Meekly)

7 Jul

The good news: Music Midtown is returning to Atlanta this September! The bad news: it is a timid shell of its former self.

The festival is scaled down to one day, September 24, featuring two stages in Piedmont Park (so maybe there will be some shade now?!). The lineup so far includes Coldplay, The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant, Band of Skulls, The Joy Formidable and Atlanta-based Manchester Orchestra. There are rumors of a Friday night show in the works, but nothing solid has been announced. Tickets will cost $55.

Will Music Midtown take off again, turning into a three-day festival of all-star acts like in the past? With such a small return, it’s hard to believe that people will embrace it with enough cash flow and demand to help take it to the next level. But only time will tell. Here’s to hoping the new Music Midtown isn’t a one-hit wonder.

Music Midtown. September 24, Piedmont Park. Tickets on sale July 16, $55.

Tickets are $10 each (best price for food in Buckhead ever), and proceeds benefit the Atlanta Mission. Plus, you get first dibs on prime seats to the big event.
