It's hard to believe we're basically in Christmas shopping crunch time. Wasn't yesterday Black Friday?! Hopefully you're not like me and you've gotten a few gifts crossed off your list. I've barely started! Thankfully there are some terrific boutique sales and holiday events coming up starting Thursday and running through the weekend.
City of Neighborhoods: Nashville Soca Clothing Pop-Up - Come see me Saturday at Soca in Green Hills from 12-3p. I'll have the full collection of City of Neighborhoods hats ready to shop. The Dry Bar Nashville will be there with a braid bar and you can register for a $100 Soca gift card. It's going to be a fun afternoon to sip (champagne of course!) and shop.
Porter Flea - The Porter Flea Holiday Market is one of the best artisan markets of the year. You can cross a lot of people off your gift list at this market. From clothing and jewelry, to art and home goods, Porter Flea is full of amazing handmade goods. There are several ways to attend this year. I much prefer to pay $25 and attend the Preview Night on Friday. This is the best way to shop without all the crowds on Saturday. Saturday is free however you can purchase a "Porter Pass" fro $15 and skip the line.
Stacey Rhodes Boutique - Two great brands are hosting trunk shows at Stacey Rhodes through Sunday.
Cavanagh Baker - Save the Date! The Cavanagh Baker x Alizah Greenberg Jewelry Holiday Event is set for next Friday, December 16 from 10am-5pm. Shop for a head-to-toe holiday outfit from Cavanagh's gorgeous collection or pick out a gift for someone special. Make sure you shop Alizah Greenberg's jewelry collection that will be set up that night as well. She has some fantastic pieces. Guests can also take part in the Cavanagh Baker Holiday "Wish List." From now through December 16th, shoppers are welcomed to make a list of the pieces from the Cavanagh Baker FW16 collection that they'd love to unwrap. They'll reach out to the "designated gift-giver" and give them a heads up.
Gus Mayer- They had me at champagne, but this is one killer sale at Gus Mayer on Thursday only!
H. Audrey - Stop by H. Audrey Thursday afternoon for the Beautycounter + Brooke Worthington Trunk Show. I am obsessed with Brooke Worthington's gorgeous jewelry. I recently received a sample of Beautycounter's rejuvenating eye cream and I love it! I'm interested to learn more about this beauty line which has banned the use of 1,500 harmful or questionable chemicals from their products.
Levy's - Levy's always has great trunks shows around holiday time. They're also a great place to shop for the guys on your list.
Fabu - I say it all the time, but Fabu is one of my go-to gift spots, especially during the holiday. They host sip and shops every Thursday night from 5-8pm. If you needed a reason to pick up a few more Christmas ornaments or decorations, head to Fabu now through Dec. 10 because they are donating 15% of sales from these items to Dolly Parton's "My People Fund."
UAL - Check UAL's Instagram for daily holiday specials! Just this week, they had shoes marked down an additional 50%. This is the time of year that I find things like Stella McCartney pants for $45. And $400 brogues for $25.
