Cary.Lane: Let a slew of 80’s hits put you in the shopping mood at this Hayes Valley destination for discounted designer labels. Along with an all-day sale of 30 percent off merchandise, those who turn up for the nighttime 80’s party from 8 to 11 p.m. will find drinks, art, tunes and prizes for the best 80’s outfits.
Have you ever wanted to get your hands on a hot stylist’s rack (people, not like that). You’ll get your chance this Friday, when Bianca Starr unveils its first “stylist boutique,” a new in-store concept that’s sure to have local vintage fashion fans drooling.
“We have the hottest, most talented women in the city who have graced us with their fashion influence and asked them to pick out 20 to 30 of their favorite pieces that they can part with to be out on consignment,” store owner Bianca Kaplan blogged recently.
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?
