Suburbanites, this one’s for you: We’ve got the details on how to score a free car wash today (and it involves shopping).
Today, head to the car wash right next to Skirt‘s Bryn Mawr location; it’s called Bryn Mawr Car Wash. The attendants will scrub your car to a sparkling sheen, and then park it for you in Skirt’s lot, all while you shop. (Think of it as a tricked-out valet service.) Show your Skirt receipt at the car wash checkout and Skirt will pick up the bill. Best reason to shop ever? We think so. Read more »
In our humble opinion, it’s time to ditch the fast-fashion spring merchandise—i.e. seven variations of the floral romper, “hippie” fringe jackets and, frankly, other items we think need to go during your spring cleaning frenzy—and start shopping the collections at Philly’s finest indie boutiques. The Northern Liberties Spring Cleaning Sale is no April Fool’s joke, and you need to carve out some free time this weekend check it out. The stores have everything to update your wardrobe and home, at discounted prices that’ll make you want to replace everything you own. (You’re not alone.) Read more »
Savings are just an email entry away, shoppers. | Image via Tibi.
Remember how we’re always going on about how fast-fashion is the worst, save your money and invest in lifelong, quality garments, blah, blah, blah? If you don’t have the luxury of shopping for designer goods and paying your rent, I understand how this message could fall on deaf ears. (Solidarity, my friends). However, every so often, the wardrobe gods smile upon us, blessing us with things like this gigantic online Tibi sample sale happening right now. Read more »

Your pre-snow day checklist: Stock up at Whole Foods tonight (they’re closed tomorrow!), prepare a Netflix binge-watch list, move your car if it’s parked on a snow emergency route, get your shovels and snowblowers ready, and then book yourself a freaking massage. Seriously: The Rittenhouse Spa is open tomorrow, and it’s offering snowed-in locals 20 percent off massages, facials and body treatments all day.
My advice? Do some preliminary shoveling early on in the day, and then soothe tired muscles with a massage. See? Your snow day just got a whole lot better. Read more »
Cella Luxuria’s Chestnut Street flagship. | Emily Goulet.
Scratch your weekend plans to make room for this: Cella Luxuria is kicking off a four-day warehouse sale on Saturday morning. In short: You should be there. The home store – which has two locations (a cavernous Chestnut Street flagship, which skews more Restoration Hardware/industrial, and a South Street outpost, which houses modern, apartment-friendly pieces) – has taken over a 6,000-square-foot Northern Liberties warehouse to unload merchandise. If my recent visit to the South Street outpost is any indication, it’s shaping up to be the sale of the season. (Seriously, half of the shop’s second level was empty, as all furniture was already transferred to the warehouse.) Read more »

Unless it’s Black Friday, there are far and few opportunities to plan an after-dark retail adventure. (Note to Philly shops: Please consider staying open later!) Lucky for you, Shoppist is here to provide one worth the 25-minute drive: Erdon is having a Midnight Madness sale tonight at the Moorestown Mall that you just don’t have any excuse to miss.
Here’s the skinny: From 5pm to midnight, get up to 70 percent off on their fall/winter collection. We’re talking store-wide deals on avant-garde designs from coveted international brands like Ivan Grundahl, MM6 Maison Margiela, and Moyuru, so expect layer-perfect asymmetrical tunics, stylish Japanese lounge pants, and unique statement footwear. Plus, you’ll have the chance to preview apparel and accessories from Erdon’s incoming spring collection before anyone else. Read more »
Joan Shepp’s minimal interior. | Emily Goulet.
My ultimate shopping secret is this: Every January, Joan Shepp holds a sale. But it’s not your average end-of-season sale, where things like droopy scarves and deflated puffer jackets are half-off. This is the Super Bowl of sales, one that sees discount racks lined with Balenciaga and Dries van Noten. It is, in a word, heaven.
Here’s what to expect: All fall merchandise is marked up to 75 percent off (it’s often organized by discount level), and the good stuff goes quickly. So make a point to take an early lunch tomorrow to nab terrific picks from the likes of Ann Demeulemeester, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Maison Margiela. The sale kicks off on Wednesday, January 13th, at 10am, and lasts through Sunday, January 17th, though items that don’t sell are usually still available afterwards. So … I’ll see you there?

You made it! Happy almost-weekend! While I won’t blame you if your plans for the next two days include nothing but an interminable Netflix binge (it’s been a long week), might I also suggest taking advantage of some of the awesome post-holiday sales that are kicking off this weekend? (I’ve even got details on where to find free yoga while shopping!) Here are the shopping events that should be on your radar. Read more »
- So apparently today is Green Monday, a shopping holiday that’s touted as the third-largest online shopping day, after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. (Who knew?) Here’s a roundup of the top Green Monday sales to shop today. [PopSugar]
- Forget the poly-blend red suit: This year, Santa’s sporting Ferragamo and Burberry. Meet Fashion Santa, a hilariously good-looking, ultra-dapper model who’s been modeling high-fashion looks for a shopping center in Toronto. Simon Malls, consider this the ad campaign to beat. [WhoWhatWear]
- Back in the time of pink bedazzled Motorola Razrs and velour sweatpants, the place to shop in L.A. was Kitson. Sadly, the go-to boutique for circa-2000 celebs like Paris, Nicole, Lindsay is no more: Kitson is closing all 17 stores as well as its online operations. And now I officially feel old.
