Food and fashion are perfect partners, if you ask me, so Danville’s Consignment Week in downtown Danville from August 6-14 is definitely on my summer calendar. Spend more than $50 at any Danville restaurant, and bring your receipt to Something Old, Something New; A Dress Change; Cottage Jewel; or Consignit Couture for a $10 discount on any purchase. And—get this—you can use the receipt more than once! This is an event you won’t want to miss.A Dress Change, Danville

The bookstore chain will only have two remaining East Bay locations, in Dublin and Emeryville. Anthropologie will be relocating and taking over the Barnes and Noble building, according to Beyond the Creek. 1149 S. Main St., Walnut Creek, (925) 947-0370, barnesandnoble.com.  

The Last Detail gift shop in Danville, which sells everything from greeting cards to jewelry, is closing at the end of June. Stop by for mega discounts. 294 Railroad Ave., Danville.

Broadway Plaza Update

A few stores are bouncing around to new locations. J. Crew is relocating across the street, and L’Occitane en Provence is moving next to Macy’s. The fragrance shop will reopen in November.

The beauty store Sephora got its own little makeover: It's now bigger, with a bolder-than-ever black-and-white design.

And two new tenants have been announced at our beloved plaza: Zara, a modern woman’s clothing store, and Kit and Ace, which carries luxury wear from the founder of Lululemon. Stay tuned for opening dates! broadwayplaza.com.
