Congratulations. You’ve arrived at the end of the first full work week of the year. Feel like celebrating? Try treating yourself to a little weekend glamour. After all, it’ll be Monday again before you know it.
If a change of pace for your face is what you seek this weekend, then head to Bloomingdale’s, where trained experts and brand ambassadors will be on hand offering tips, special treatments and – as always – complimentary makeovers at numerous cosmetics department counters. Among the special offerings this weekend, facials and skin care analysis at Clarins, mini spa treatments and new lip colors at Lancome and contouring tips from Cle de Peau Beaute. Advance appointments are recommended for all services. Visit Bloomingdale's San Francisco Events for the complete list of counters and corresponding phone numbers.
For brides-to-be, another appointment well worth booking this weekend comes courtesy of Saks Fifth Avenue. The Union Square store’s Bridal Sample Sale kicked off earlier this week and runs through Jan. 20. Schedule a visit with the Bridal Salon for a showing of designer wedding gowns from such designers as Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Amsale, Kenneth Pool and Monique Lhuillier – all priced at up to 50 percent off retail. To make an appointment, call 415-743-5146.
Just as we (sort of) start to (almost) get tired of hearing about sales and more sales, the price tags are getting even juicer. Really, so many discounts, deals and chances to save are showering the city right now that it’s kinda making our heads swim. But don’t worry about us. We’ll muddle through somehow. On our retail radar this weekend are sales at Acrimony, The Blues Jean Bar, Flaunt Boutique, Candystore Collective, Heidi Says (all stores), London Sole and Sample Angel.
