We are huge supporters of shopping local, and we consider it a huge bonus if you can save money while also supporting your community. This Saturday kicks off the nine-day Warehouse Sale at the beehive, an independent designer showcase in Edgewood. Shop early and shop often–early birds on Saturday will be rewarded with Wanderlust Cold Brew Coffee and Revolution Donuts, plus first pick of all the 40%-90% off goodies.  But late sleepers don’t fret, vendors will restock throughout the week!

Stock up on apparel, jewelry, housewares, gift items and more from over 50 local vendors. If you’re a crafty-type person, you’ll be able to scoop up discounted DIY supplies. Check out a full list of vendors and details here. Shop the extended kickoff Saturday from 9am till 7pm, or stop by during normal business hours (11:00am – 7:00pm, M-Sat; Noon – 5:00pm, Sunday). The sale ends on August 31.

It’s the season of the end-of-summer clearance, and K-la is pulling out all the stops. Everything at their Atlantic Station location is 70% off, from tops to bottoms to dresses to…well, all of it. Sale starts today, and it’s probably a smart idea to get down there before the goodies are gone.

To-Do: Boutique Bargains Warehouse Sale

It’s time for the twice-a-year event that is the closest Atlanta gets to a sample sale: the Boutique Bargains Warehouse Sale. It’s not so much a sample sale as several local stores pooling their clearance sections under one roof, but we’ll take it. The convenience of shopping multiple sales at once is hard to argue with.

This year the sale is at the Shops Around Lenox on July 25 and 26, in the former Roche Bobois space. They’ve got discounts from 50% to 70%, dressing rooms and a giant parking lot, but they only take cash or check–which is kind of a pain, so make note and don’t be That Girl. There’s a variety of shops participating this year, from Sandpiper to K-La, so there’s something for everyone. Highlighted brands  include lots of premium denim, Alexander Wang, Lilly Pulitzer, Joie, Rachel Pally, Moschino Cheap & Chic, DVF, Lauren Moffat, and more.

There’s also an Uber code for 10% off your ride to the sale, in case you’re the kind to get drunk on deals: ORIGINALBOUTIQUE. Mark off your two hour lunches and get ready for some bargains.

Your Holiday Solution: Alice + Olivia Trunk Show

20 Nov

We’ve all experienced that what-to-wear panic…there’s an event coming, we’ve known about it for weeks, and yet we’re still frantically crawling the mall at the last minute looking for something to wear. Because nothing in the closet looks “right.” But neither does anything on the racks. This time, it’s because the holidays are here, and we’re not the only ones who need something for a holiday party.

Fret no more.

Tootsies is hosting an Alice + Olivia trunk show. If you’re not already familiar, you may need the full disclosure that we’re kind of fans here. But truly, Stacey Bendet’s dresses are the ultimate effortless chic. Statement dresses that don’t scream “look at me, I’m a statement dress!” Mostly because of flattering cuts and subtly glamorous materials.

Stop by Tootsies at the Shops Around Lenox Nov 21-23 during regular business hours to shop the hottest holiday dresses, and find something that suits you. (And avoid the overcrowded mall entirely.) Because you already have enough stress in your life.

Now, what to do for New Year’s…

-Alice + Olivia Trunk Show at Tootsies. 3400 Around Lenox Dr. November 21-23.

Don’t you wish someone would make a brick-and-mortar Etsy-style store that has great holiday gifts for everyone? On Friday, your wish comes true: the Indie Craft Experience is popping up in Candler Park from Nov. 15-Dec. 30, giving you items from more than 50 vendors to fill your holiday wish list. Think: jewelry, home goods, art, paper goods, bath and beauty, food and even goodies for pets (.

Stop by for the launch party between 7-9pm on Friday and get a bag ‘o swag if you’re one of the first 100 people in the door.

Too Damn Cute: Starbucks x Alice + Olivia

There is a soft spot in our hearts for Alice + Olivia–Stacey Bendet’s designs are fun and sexy in an effortless way every season.

This holiday season, she’s teamed up with Starbucks to offer cute gifts for the season, a teddy bear and a matching tumbler. Retailing from $20-$40, this just may make us reconsider our love for Dunkin.

Get Out: Erica Domesek of ‘PS I Made This’ at Saks

12 Mar

If you’ve ever wished to be as creative as the guru behind hit blog PS – I Made This, you can at least have the opportunity to pick her brain at Saks Fifth Avenue this Wednesday. She’ll even help you make a piece of your own jewelry using Swarovski crystals, just in time for prom/wedding season. Where was this kind of budget-friendly stuff when we needed it?!

Stop by the dresses section upstairs between 4 and 7pm on March 14.

Ch-ch-changes: Perimeter Mall Edition

29 Feb


Much kudos to Eli Zandman at Tomorrow’s News Today – Atlanta for specifically tipping us off via Twitter about the new stores slated for Perimeter Mall: Madewell and Sperry Top Sider. When Bloomingdale’s announced it was pulling out of the iconic mall and would be replaced by a Von Maur, we got a little worried about the fate of the shopping mecca. But the expansion of J. Crew’s sister brand is exciting (although perhaps it would do better at North Point?) and Sperry Top Sider’s new store promises to offer more than those famous boat shoes that are currently making a huge comeback, including a variety of accessories like scarves, bags, hosiery, belts, eyewear and more.

But remember: it’s a sin to wear socks with Top Siders.

Coming Soon: DVF for Gap Kids

28 Feb

Time to get jealous: Diane von Furstenberg is creating a lower-priced line for the Gap…Kids. A bummer to anyone over 14 and childless, the collection is slated to launch on March 15 at Gap Kids stores and online, featuring DVF’s famous bright prints, colors and wrap dresses for babies, toddlers and kids. Much like the Stella McCartney collection two years ago, we expect this will 1) fly off the shelves, and 2) you will see a lot of petite and slender women trying to squeeze into them in the dressing rooms.

If you’re looking for ways to shop local/indie this season (and if you aren’t–why not?), check out the Midtown Pop-Up, returning this weekend to the Midtown Mile. Stop by on Thursday after work (5pm to 9pm) to shop the Clothing Warehouse, Drew Lewis’ new private label menswear, En Paris gifts and Revolution 11 vintage apparel. Then come back on Friday and Saturday for more from Olive, Pieces of Me, Lisa Jill, Kristi Hyde and Junebug, plus Sinless cocktails and Rockin’ Cupcakes. Not only will you get your holiday shopping out of the way early this year, but you’ll be able to bask in the (smug) satisfaction of knowing that you helped a small business.
