This Week in Fashion: Shotwell's 80% Off Moving Sale, Black V 2.0, Personal Hair How-To's + Martha Davis Shoe Party
1. Spring Sale at Metier (355 Sutter St.), Now, during store hours.
The Spring Sale at Metier kicked off this week with 20% off select items. I've had my eye on their Isabel Marant Jordan Jacket -- here's to crossing fingers and hoping it's on sale! P.S. Be sure to keep an eye on Metier's blog for additional markdowns.
2. 80% Off Moving & Housewares Sale at Shotwell (320 Grant Ave.), Now - Monday May 23, during store hours.
Shotwell is packing up their Union Square shop and bringing it on home to the Mission. I'm excited to scope out their new digs, but even more excited for their ginormous Moving Sale. Get up to 80% off their amazing apparel selection, and 50% off all furniture and plants.
A brand new reason to come out of the woods and go shopping in Cow Hollow comes in the form of Conifer, a cozy little shop just up the hill on Webster Street from Union in the space previously home to Great Overland Books.
The first retail venture from former longtime Built By Wendy employee Amy Mautz, who returned to San Francisco in 2008 to open the indie label’s now-shuttered Mission boutique after several years in the Big Apple, the shop focuses on the smaller New York labels she fell in love with while living on the East Coast.
“I’ve always wanted to have my own store, and I knew that was going to happen one day,” says Mautz.
