OpenInPHL: Rittenhouse Spa Offering Huge Discounts on Saturday Treatments

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 »

This Weekend: The Furniture and Home Accessories Warehouse Sale of Your Dreams

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 »

Attention Late-Night Shoppers: Erdon’s Midnight Madness Sale Is Tonight

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 »

The Super Bowl of Sales: Joan Shepp’s Blowout Basement Sale Starts Tomorrow

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?  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.

Where to Shop in Philly on Black Friday


Grab your girls, and get your shop on. And bonus points if you go out shopping looking like this. | Shutterstock.

As I say every single year, Black Friday is to Shoppist what the Super Bowl is to a football fan. Our whole year of sleuthing out the best shops, steals, deals and trends comes down this – the sale day of all sale days, the bargains to end all bargains. But while less-than-savvy shoppers might line up at big-box spots like Best Buy and Target, we know that the real deals are found in our incredible local shops.

Here are the less-publicized (read: less-crowded) but equally fantastic sales taking place on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. Because you can always find another TV on mega-sale. But that covetable Maison Scotch sweater at that insane price won’t come around again. Happy shopping! (And keep checking back! We’ll be updating this list throughout the week as more deals come in.)  Read more »
