The key to a fab closet is variety: plenty of styles, brands, textures and silhouettes. But flitting around to the best boutiques—especially when they’re scattered across the city and ‘burbs—is no easy task. (See: malls, invention of.) Enter Philly Mag Shops, our first-ever, one-day-only warehouse sale on Sunday, October 6th, from 12pm to 4pm.
The lowdown: We handpicked over 30 of the area’s best boutiques and designers to set up shop at the Crane Arts Building in Northern Liberties. And then we convinced them all to sell their newest, best fall merch at serious discounts. Sixteen amazing womenswear shops (from city staples like Knit Wit, Third Street Habit, Pileggi, and Vagabond to suburban standouts like Erdon, Per Lei, Shop Sixty Five and Eaves) are all selling fall pieces from top designers at 40 percent off. Peter Kate and Bus Stop are cornering our Shoe Lounge (all shoes at 30 percent off!), and six jewelry boutiques, from TownHome to Menagerie and Verde, are selling their best baubles at 25 percent off. We found some of Philly’s top local designers, too—including the Philly Mag Fashion Project contestants!—and you’ll be able to score their looks, too.
We’ve also got some pampering: nail art, a braids-and-buns bar, and a makeup station, where you can try out fall’s top looks (smoked-out eyes and a super-vampy lip). And, naturally, champagne and light bites round out the mix.
It’s like your dream mall, where everything’s on sale and booze is served. Buy tickets now (they’re only $25) and we’ll see you there.
