Joan Shepp’s eponymous store on Chestnut Street.

Ready for an all-day blowout? Today until 9pm, Joan Shepp is having a huge fashion celebration. Right now, head there for a portrait session with local fashion artist Denise Fike. At 3pm, models will be showing off top spring looks for men and women. But the party really starts at 5pm, when the cocktails are served and Rittenhouse’s most famous shopgirl, Tuesday Gordon, will school shoppers on how to mix and match prints. (PS: It’s her birthday, so there will be cake, too!)

The shopping — and sipping — continues until 9pm. The fine print: Shoppers can enter to win a pair of designer sunglasses or sneakers of their choice, and 10 percent of the day’s proceeds will go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

United by Blue Celebrates First Store-in-Store Concept at State & Union Tonight

Good news: Environmentally conscious local clothier United By Blue is expanding — sort of. The lifestyle brand is known for its weather-ready waxed canvas bags, comfy tees and classic accessories (it seems like everyone was rocking this beanie this winter). And currently, they have two Philly locations: a flagship in Old City and a recently opened spot in University City.

But now, shoppers will also be able to get their hands on UBB merch at Kennett Square’s hip heritage lifestyle shop State & Union. State & Union has carved out a section of its shop to stock the entire line of United By Blue apparel, bags and accessories. State & Union owner Doug Harris tells us it will differ from a pop-up shop in that it’s intended to become a permanent addition to State & Union.

And though the new section has been up and running for the last few weeks, they’re celebrating the new concept tonight with foods, drinks and live music.  Keep reading to get in on the action.
