1. It’s finally, blessedly, temperate out (we won’t dare say warm just yet, but a few of us doffed our coats this afternoon! Progress).
2. Tomorrow kicks off the first-ever Shop for CHOP, a three-day event during which 20 local, independent retailers will be donating 20 percent of proceeds to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The participating shops are all heavy-hitters in the local boutique world (which means you’ll be able to find amazing things), but even better, you’ll be helping raise funds for the hospital. Win-win!
