Beer And Boots At Benjamin Lovell Tonight


Here’s a great way to kick off your weekend: beer, boots and a sale.

It goes down at Benjamin Lovell Shoes‘s Rittenhouse location (119 South 18th Street) and it starts right now. So close up shop and head over there. Hey, it’s a long weekend. Might as well kick it off early.

Here are the details: From 4pm to 7pm tonight, you’ll get free beer and 20 percent off all men’s shoes and boots. Sounds pretty good, right? We’ll see you there.


18 Best Instagrams From Philly Mag Shops


A bohemian lounge; a jewelry table.

Well, our second Philly Mag Shops went off without a hitch on Sunday! It was a huge success, with—as one designer told me—”all of the coolest shops and people in the city” there. It was a seriously inspiring event, whether you took inspiration from the truly incredible event design (that is all thanks to Maggpie Vintage Rentals, who created one of the most insane lounges I’ve ever seen), or from the smart curation of some of our best boutiques, or from the cool styles of attendees (you’ve gotta check out the toddler wearing one of the coolest outfits I’ve ever seen a little kid wear).

I’ve rounded up some of the best #phillymagshops Instagram posts right here. Check out all the event goodness, see what you scored there (some of your pics might have made the cut!), and get inspired. Thanks for coming out!

Philly Mag Shops Store Preview: Third Street Habit


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.

Score a Secret Club Monaco Discount On Friday


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!

Find out how to also get a 20 percent discount.
