Groupon's deal of the day: $35 VIP tickets to the Beauty Bash at Hudson Hotel (retail $75). Two dates available: Monday, May 10 and Monday, Jun 21. Event time: 6:30-9PM.
- Two-hour open martini bar
- Mini facials, massage, makeovers, and spa services

A VIP ticket to a Hudson Terrace Beauty Bash works like a gilded key to a treasure trove of tranquil treats. Traipse from station to station on this beauty train, indulging in everything the style salon has to offer. The event will be held in the second-floor salon space of Hudson Terrace, 5,000 square feet of open floor, red leather couches, and opulent crystal chandeliers. Makeup artists will clack brushes alongside hair and beauty stylists, and skin consultants from iS CLINICAL may be seen distributing free samples like a generous prince tossing gold doubloons to assembled peasant clusters. A live (not reanimated) DJ will spin tunes to warm the air follicles, and an open martini bar will shake the very souls of guests over the course of the evening.

Until Friday, Apr 2, Tina Tang's initial necklaces are 50% off, making them $63. Dilly dally too long and they go up to $88. Then on Monday, Apr 5 they go back to full price. This would make a fabulous b/day present. Only available in sterling silver.
Daily Candy has just introduced me to a whole new level of geekout. 3floz.com carries small sizes (and some regular sizes) of skin and hair products. PERFECT for testing out at home before committing, or, you know, traveling. I am definitely going to try some of the Philip B white truffle haircare that would a ridiculously expensive gamble if you hate it. I'm also going to stock up on some items that I get at CO Bigelow (the one on 6th Ave that never participates in F&F!) like Ted Gibson hair sheets and Dr. Hauschka nail pens.
Use code "DC3FLOZ" and get 25% off your order too!

If you are not too fussy about your undies, you might want to check out the clearance section at HerRoom.com. There's not a whole lot, but if you have a particular brand you adore, it's worth a look. I am pretty loyal to Hanky Panky, so I'll just snap up any pair at a good price.
Not tons of selection, but there are some nice finds in the Blue Bee Sale section, which is now 70% off.
I just bought a leather House of Harlow bangle for one of my best friend's birthdays! I'm excited to see it once it comes in, in case I want one for myself ;)

ShopBop has been kind of quiet lately, so I checked to see what was going on. Not a whole lot of new things added to the sale section, but there are some cute bags on sale right now for 30% off, including Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Rebecca Minkoff, and my favorite of the bunch, the Diane von Furstenburg Carmen tote. It just looks so summery. Now $346.50 (retail $495).
I'll check back on them again next week.
Hold on to your hats because TheOutnet.com will be having a Christian Louboutin sale on Tuesday. Just a heads up to save room on the credit card for a potential pair of shoes ;)
Will have more info soon! Have a great gorgeous weekend!

Blue Bee has marked down some new Spring merchandise by 60%. The selection isn't super robust, but they did get some new Philosophy by Alberta Feretti pieces, Creed perfume, and a nice selection of jeans under $75.
Update: forgot to add, size 2 is running thin, but they are restocking, so I'd go now if you have time to dig (or wear size 1,3, or 4), or show up first thing tomorrow morning.
All I can say is, OMG. This sale is all out insanity and awesome bundled into one. There is SO MUCH merchandise for women, a pretty good selection for men, and 2 racks of clothes for children.
What you'll find for women: tanks $18 (although the selection is VERY slim. I didn't even think to head there first, and it was ravaged), t-shirts $20-39, long sleeve t-shirts $25-39, long sleeve tops (a lot of overstock FW) $25-39, sweaters $59-129, those fleece jackets and hoodie pullovers from FW $59-129, lounge pants $49-59, canvas/cotton pants $59, wool wide-leg trousers $59, lounge shorts $59, button down long-sleeve shirts $59, maxi dresses $59+, sweaters $129, long tunics $59-129, overcoats $129+ ... basically, everything in the warehouse.
Although I didn't thoroughly browse the mens section, which was really calm compared to the chaos in womens, the selection looked pretty good, and there were a lot of men in the check-out line, which is a solid testament to the selection.
Original posting here, but it's in Chelsea Market (which is adding an Anthropologie!). Go go go.
This weekend's Shop-In: an additional 40% off accessories from Lanvin, Thakoon, Proenza Schouler and Kenneth Jay Lane. You can browse now, but the +40% discount isn't live until noon EST. You'll see it upon checkout.
Thursday, March 18, 2010

Sale ends Monday, Mar 29.

I'm a big fan of Nordstrom Rack, and over the weekend when I was in Austin, I made sure to squeeze in a visit. I wasn't disappointed. They had Cosabella bras for $24, Hanky Panky undies for $12, and a rack of James Perse! I scored a black scoop-neck t-shirt for $25 and grey fleece pants for $50. I also found these Burberry platform peep-toe heels which were 50% off $399 (retail $795). So if you're heading north, or visiting the Container Store, you should pop in to see what you can score.
Red Envelope is having a Spring sale, having marked some things down 50%. One thing that caught my eye: this Tourmaline Cluster necklace which is now $50 (retail $295). It comes with a descriptive giftcard which will absolutely make the receiver believe you spent way more than $50 on it.
Or, for the moms out there, there's a gorgeous St. Kilda mother's necklace for $65 (retail $295).
Plus you can use code "REDTIER" and get 10% off all orders or 15% off $80+ or 20% off $125+.

I'm actually waiting on a pair of titanium Chanel eyeglasses to come in. When I ordered them two weeks ago, I had a lot of fun looking through all the frame styles at the Lenscrafters Optique near my house. I was surprised to learn that they can put prescription lenses in the designer sunglasses frames! They say so long as the lens required isn't super curved (like a wrap-around), they can do Chanel frames, Ray Ban frames, Prada frames, etc. Pretty cool since I can't go outside in the bright sun without sunglasses (and therefore only wear contacts during the summer).
If you are interested in Chanel frames, you have to go to an Optique location. Otherwise most other locations carry Prada, Ray-Ban, D&G, and even Tiffany & Co (don't get me started on the "Tiffany blue" frames).
The 50% off discount covers regular lenses, bi-focals (no lines) and prescription sun, with frame purchase. Ends Saturday, Apr 3.
Mintbox has a great promo for trendy East Village boutique Cry Wolf, which carries great brands like 80%20, Acne, Chronicles of Never, Cutler and Gross, Fremont, Generic Surplus, Nudie Jeans, s2vs, Surface to Air, and Vanishing Elephant (among others).
Log into your Mintbox account to print a coupon good for 30% off all new merchandise and 20% off sale, plus 10% cashback. Or, you can shop online and get a flat 20% off with code "PROMOWOLF".
* If you don't have a Mintbox account, use referral code "AAMB5" to skip the waiting list
