If it's a fashionable way to spend, and happening in the Bay Area, we're talking about it in Shop Talk.
We couldn't be more ready to transition gently into spring, and what better way than with the coming of some eye-catching prints from our go-to S.F. shops. Craft yourself a gorgeous get-up from these mis-matched prints from whimsical scarves, to striking geo-patterns.
As Ben Stiller once said, can you deal with this?
Saffron Rare Threads: This local label by designer Priya Saraswati is celebrating its 5th anniversary in business this month. Much of the merch in the online shop is already on sale, and you can take 50 percent off the second item in your purchase with the discount code weare5. The deal also applies to Saffron Rare Threads items in stock at design collective and boutique Studio 3579.
It may be c-c-cold outside, but at least these deals are hot....
Union Street Sidewalk Sale: While plenty of San Francisco streets seem to be having block-long sales (just walk Maiden Lane, and you’ll see what we mean), others are making it official. Head to Cow Hollow this weekend for a three-day sale that we hear from retailer Mabel Chong will feature just about everybody along this popular San Francisco shopping corridor. For her part, Chong will be offering 20 percent off new items and up to 70 percent off previous collections to make way for fall inventory.
