Shop Talk — February 2009
CB2 in Berkeley, plus lingerie sales for V-Day.
CRATE & BARREL'S younger, hipper sibling, CB2, is set to open on Berkeley's Fourth Street early in 2009—the fifth CB2 in the country.
DiPietro Todd Salon, named best salon by Allure magazine, was due to open a new location in Walnut Creek.
This month, the Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation hosts a Chinese New Year fashion show. Details at lafayettelib.com.
Art lovers, check out Kevin Milligan Gallery in Danville for Milligan’s landscapes of Mount Diablo and the Oakland-Berkeley hills.
For something sexy, Danville's Original Sin lingerie boutique offers Pinup Parties. They’ll dress you up and give you the full photo-shoot treatment with two wardrobe changes. There's also a $50 discount on purchases of over $150 the week up to V-Day.
And, Walnut Creek's Bonne Nuit lingerie is offering 15 percent off all purchases through the 14th if you mention you read this in Diablo. Happy Valentine’s Day!
