Style + Design
Earlier this month, the sole West Coast outpost from Paris-based Lilith relocated from its former location on Berkeley’s Fourth Street to Pacific Heights. We recently caught up with the shop’s longtime manager Sharon Haag to learn more about the new destination for feminine, French fashion and what’s in store for spring.
How would you describe the Lilith aesthetic?
Why should San Francisco women flock to Lilith?
We love supporting San Francisco businesses and we love good deals. So we're teaming up with cool local company Joffer to offer 7 days of killer deals to some of our favorite local San Francisco businesses. From now until Friday, March 5, check back here to cash in.
So without further ado, here's Deal #2...
Do you like manicures? Of course you do. Your poor hands have been pocket-shoved and shielded from the winter elements for long enough: it's time set them free with some lovin' and some color! For seven bucks. That's like less than two lattes. Plus, a warm oil hand massage is included. Win.
Now that Noise Pop is officially in full swing, chances are you've already seen more live music...well, since last year...and it's not even the weekend yet.
We say it's time to switch things up a bit on Saturday and check out another kind of independent artist at Noise Pop's insanely popular indie design fair, Pop 'N Shop.
Need a new cropped sweater, quirky jewelry or a bold print for your walls? Yeah neither do we, but you'll likely change your mind once you set foot in The Verdi Club. With over 40 local artists and designers like Turk+Taylor, Seccession Art & Design and SanFranPsycho slingin' their unique and affordable wares, we dare you to walk out emptyhanded.
Time to deal...
Sync Salon: Local deal site Fresh Guide is offering a $35 shampoo, cut and bow dry (reg. $70) at this Financial District salon. You’ve got to purchase within the next two days to get the discount.
Taxi CDC/Collective: During a trunk show and art opening tonight from 5-9 p.m. for Maria Puopolo’s new Hello There Friend works of art, you’ll save 40 percent on all clothing in the shop.
We hate to have to tell you this, but it's supposed to be another wet weekend. That said, there's no reason to cancel your plans and stay home with takeout and the remote or risk fighting everyone in SF for a taxi.
Instead, we suggest coercing your friends to come to you with a good old-fashioned dinner party. Not only does it give you a chance to show off your latest and greatest dish, chances are you'll save money and most importantly, stay dry.
And since what to wear at such an occasion is always up for debate, we decided to show you what we'd show up in:
If San Francisco’s most fashionable enclaves seemed a little deserted over the last two weeks, it’s for good reason. Not a few fashion-minded Left Coasters flocked east for New York Fashion Week, and we’ve been eating up their electronic missives from under the tents ever since.
For a Fashion Week redux with a San Francisco perspective, we turn to a few of our favorite local fashion sources for the skinny:
Jennie of Going West had a whirlwind spin through New York, which culminated in a photo shoot at Bryant Park and the discovery of two new bags she didn’t know she had – too bad they were under her eyes.
You might say it's a done deal…
LF: Through the end of the month, deals abound at this Union Street destination for trendy women’s apparel during the shop’s semi-annual 60 percent off sale. We hear jeans are going for $48, while sequin tops and skirts are $24 and knit dresses are $36.
Nine West: A sale on boots means up to 50 percent off the lowest ticket price at the retailer’s Westfield Centre location.
We don't know about you, but a week of rooting for Team U.S.A. in the Winter Olympics has us feeling unusually patriotic. And while we're perpetually on the edge of our seats waiting to see what Johnny Weir twirls around in next, we found sartorial inspiration in all-American style that's more Ralph Lauren than pink-trimmed latex. With that, this week's look:

Much to our dismay, there’s rarely news in the SF fashion scene that’s epic enough to garner international buzz, leaving us with baited breath for months of speculation. But such is the case with Levi’s, answering our sartorial prayers with their latest venture and the time has finally come to take a collective exhale and feast our eyes on the spring Levi’s by Opening Ceremony collection.
