The countdown is on! We’re officially five days out from the best warehouse shopping event in Philly—if we do say so ourselves. For today’s Philly Mag Shops preview, we’re featuring the effortlessly cool, eco-conscious Wayne boutique, Element Six. The socially responsible shop favors classic pieces with a fun punch (think: interesting textures, prints, and color schemes) and are sure to be a fan favorite.
Looking for something to do this weekend? I’ve got your plans, and they include champagne, cocktails, freebie beauty treatments, and insane shopping. It’s called Philly Mag Shops, and it goes down this Sunday, October 5th, from 12pm to 3pm.
Think of it as the ultimate shopping mall—all of Philly’s best boutiques, all gathered in one spot, and all selling their latest clothing, accessories, jewelry, and gift-y goods at ridiculously discounted prices, for one day only.
Interested? Of course you are.
- Sunday, October 5th, from 12-3pm, at Crane Arts, Philadelphia
- Over 30 of Philly’s top boutiques and local designers
- 40% off ALL boutique clothing
- 30% ALL accessories (think: belts, bags, shoes, scarves, home goods)
- 25% ALL jewelry (we’ve got TownHome, Concrete Polish, John Wind, Menagerie and Bario Neal coming!)
- Food, cocktails, and all the freebie beauty treatments you could want (including nail art and a braid bar!)
Tickets are $25 ($35 at the door), and then it’s all the shopping you could ask for! Even better, we’re giving you a shot to win two free tickets. To win, be the first to email Josh Middleton, at email@example.com, with the subject line “I want to go Philly Mag Shops-ing!”
Don’t want to test your luck? Get tickets here, and I can’t wait to see you there!
Time for us to peel back the curtain on Philly Mag Shops and give you another sneak peek of what you’ll find during our biggest, most fabulous shopping event of the year. This time, we’ve got Old City’s Third Street Habit, quite possibly one of Philly’s most beloved shops.
If you haven’t been to Third Street Habit, think of it as sort of like Free People, but a way more grown-up, luxe version. (More Isabel Marant, less feather earrings.) Last year, their pop-up space was jam-packed; I scored a faux-fur-and-knit muff that I’m still obsessed with.
This year, they’re bringing the good stuff again—all new fall clothing at 40 percent off, all jewelry at 35 percent off, and everything else at 30 percent off. (So, yeah, pretty insane discounts for three hours only.) I chatted with Liz, one of my fave shopgirls in the city, to get the inside scoop on what they’ll have.
Well, hello there! I’m Emily (yep, there are two of us here), and I’m the editor over at Be Well Philly’s sister blog Shoppist. I’m hosting our second annual Philly Mag Shops event, and it’s going to be amazing. And, once again, Be Well Philly told me that I could post about it here if I somehow tied it in to being fit, healthy and, well, well. So here goes:
Shopping by yourself is great and all, but I think it’s more fun to shop with others. And by others, I mean me. (Really, I’m brutally honest; I can show you how to wear that dress as a skirt/tunic/turban, and I can give you my top-secret tips for justifying almost any purchase, and how to then hide this purchase from your significant other. Note: Trunks are NOT safe places.) Did I mention that champagne is involved?
The lowdown: I’m hosting a shopping event at Club Monaco on Walnut Street this Friday, from 6pm to 8pm. The (amazing) team there has pulled out all the stops. We’ll have champagne, catering from Starr, and the cutest candy bar you’ve ever seen. But there’s more!
If the idea of getting to shop Center City’s best boutiques and sample the most delish cocktails around gets you psyched, then we just found your Tuesday night plans. On September 23 from 6 to 8, swing by Rittenhouse Row to do just that.
Grab those calendars; Refinery29 is coming to King of Prussia Mall and we are majorly excited. Pop over to the Nordstrom Court this Saturday, September 20th, for a mashup of the lifestyle site and Simon, King of Prussia’s parent company, for a day of shopping, beauty and style. Basically, you’ll leave with a personal fall fashion game plan—and it doesn’t get much better than that.
Clover Market is back and we couldn’t be more excited. The open-air market will be debuting in Chestnut Hill (25 West Highland Avenue) this Sunday, September 14 from 10am to 5pm, rain or shine. Pencil the market into your plans to shop over 100 vendors and food trucks. Bonus: you can bring the kids along; they have free crafts!
Well, this is cool: Tonight at the Art Museum, you can join the girls behind Art Star, NoLibs’s beloved art/craft/gift boutique, and the cream of Philly’s creative crop for a night of varied crafting lessons. And we’re not talking low-level tie-dye here. This is the stuff that takes off on Etsy and makes everyone dream of quitting their day jobs and taking up the art of collage.
