What's in Store: A Giveaway!

Enter for a chance to win two VIP tickets to a sale blowout in San Francisco.

Sales, Contests, and Events

Calling all fall and winter brides (or spring and summer brides who love to plan ahead): Kinsley James is having a huge blowout sample sale. Save up to 70 percent off on Saturday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are no appointments, so I suggest arriving early to score the designer dress of your dreams.

Another way to keep your closet and wallet happy simultaneously: Nordstrom’s women and kids sale is happening May 21 through June 1. During the first two days of the sale (this Wednesday and Thursday), you’ll receive double points on your Nordstrom card. 

Put your love of fashion and social media to good use: Specialtees in Lafayette is having an Instagram contest. Simply follow the store, post a picture of your outfit, tag Specialtees, and be automatically entered to win a $250 gift card. The winner will be announced May 30.

Are you on a Bar Method kick? Tucks and Tans is now stopping by the Bar Method in Walnut Creek. Every other Thursday, stop in for a spray tan from Apres Soleil (not before you get all sweaty, of course). Catch them this Thursday, May 22.

Christian LouboutinRead Booksellers in Blackhawk Plaza is having an author event. Local author Sean Lynch, a former police officer, is launching his second novel, The Fourth Motive. Join him Saturday, May 31, at 7:30 p.m. to get in on the action.


Openings and Movement

Danville is becoming an East Bay shopping destination in its own right. Pelican Rock has moved from Walnut Creek to Danville’s East Prospect Avenue, and Duchess Boutique will be moving from Lafayette to Hartz Avenue. Construction on the new place is in beginning stages, so check back for updates.

A Christian Louboutin boutique is now open in San Francisco. This is the first one in Northern California; the closest stores to us are located in Southern California and Las Vegas. At 1650 square feet, you’ll be sure to find the perfect pair of incomparable kickers–or five. The stunning space is located on Maiden Lane on the border of the Financial District and Union Square. There are both men’s and women’s fashions available.
