After another whirlwind year, we’ve arrived once again at peak shopping season — and we’re here to guide you through it. We’ve rounded up over 40 of the best sales, promotions, free gifts, secret codes, shopping parties and more (oh, and we sprinkled in where you’ll also get free booze). But what’s better: For 99 percent of them, you don’t even have to step foot into a mall, so you can avoid rabid crowds and support our coolest local shops. Happy shopping — and saving. Let’s do this.
Well, what are you waiting for?

Fans of Free People know that the bohemian brand’s sales are few and far between. So when word gets out about a 20 to 25 percent discount on full-price purchases, we feel a professional responsibility to share the good news. But here’s the catch, the sale is only going on for four hours tonight.

I think we’re all in agreement that November flew by far too quickly. Sure, Thanksgiving is still a week away, but before you know it, you’ll be trading in your turkey for tabletop Christmas trees, and foliage for festive lights. And who doesn’t love getting a head start? That’s where Terrain’s Holiday Open House comes in—and it’s just as whimsical and festive as it sounds.
Confession: We’re already listening to Christmas carols.

Philly is already home to a pretty impressive import shopping scene (see: Morihata, Millésimé, Via Bellissima, Omoi Zakka Shop and Curio Philadelphia). But today, our cluster of global-centric shops gets a boost thanks to My Little Redemption, a brand-new boutique in Old City that specializes in high-end Israeli designers, and a major shopping event at South Street’s Morcoccan boutique Mushmina.

It’s finally Friday, Shoppists! We know it’s one of the first
chilly bone-chillingly frigid nights of the season, but resist the urge to don a Snuggie and shop from your couch, and pencil in one of these fantastic shopping events happening in Philly. From antiques and British pop music to a cheese expert and cider, this is the fall-worthy fun you’ve been waiting for all season.
Event details ahead!

Remember Nicole Haddad, one of the designers in this year’s Philly Mag Fashion Project? Well, her line of comfy basics, called Lobo Mau, is taking off, cementing her status as a name to know in Philly.
Knit Wit has taken notice, and is hosting a Lobo Mau trunk show tomorrow. Fittingly, the party is called the ‘Sweat Event’—Haddad’s line is made from cozy sweatshirt materials, but in upgraded silhouettes (shawl-collared swing coats, toggled parkas).

You’ve got three days.
When I read this blog post title aloud at our daily digital meeting this morning, there were audible gasps. And for good reason: It’s rare to find Frye boots at such a hefty discount. But we’ve found them, and they’re at Ella’s Grove in Bryn Mawr.

Shop all these goodies from November 7 through November 16.
Hey, we get it, it can be tough hitting up all your favorite local retailers in an afternoon, especially if one is on Fabric Row and another is in NoLibs. That’s why they’re all coming together starting tomorrow for a mega holiday pop-up shop. Yup, Armour, Bus Stop, Ritual Ritual, and Third Street Habit will all be in one place from 11am to 6pm, November 7 through November 16. Your holiday shopping just got seriously easy.
Take that, gift list!

Skirt Boutique email subscribers were sent a cryptic mass email yesterday reading: “Something big is coming, Wednesday November 5th” in bold white letters on a black background. Naturally curious, we wondered: Is it a new brand? A new store? Another awesome service like their style boxes?!
Well, it’s none of those things. It’s something better. I chatted with owner Maureen Doron, and she gave me the skinny: For the first time in 13 years, the boutique is having a massive pre-holiday sale, and it startson Thursday.
“It’s 20 percent off the whole store,” Doron explained. “Not one thing is excluded.”
To get you even more psyched and to sweeten the deal, the shop is also launching a loyalty program this Thursday (think: free gift cards when you spend a certain amount).
Everything you need to know about the sale.

We get it: A winter coat can be a big investment purchase—and you can’t even wear it indoors. But instead of holding out until there’s six inches of snow on the sidewalk (no, your moto jacket won’t get you through a Philly winter), we suggest hitting up Knit Wit‘s insane coat and denim sale.
All three of the boutique’s locations—Margate, Bryn Mawr and Center City—are selling all coats at 50 percent off, and all denim at 20 percent off. And the brands included are really good.
