Weekly Guide to Nashville Boutique Sales: Fashion's Night Out - September 6

Last year, I spent Fashion's Night Out in the heart of New York City. That evening took the phrase "shop til you drop" to an entirely different level. There was so much to see and do, that actually trying to plan what stores to go to was pointless. We just found a starting point and then kept walking, ducking into stores when we could and then running out to escape the melee. It was an absolute shopping frenzy. This year, I'll be spending Fashion's Night Out in Nashville. You'll find me at the Mall at Green Hills for the Nfocus Calendar Launch Party in Nordstorm Court outside of Nordstrom and the Apple store. Stop by and see me between 6-9pm. You can pick up your copy of The Season, the Nfocus 2012-2013 social calendar, get your photo taken on the red carpet by our friends at Dub Chek Photography and keep those sugar levels up with a cupcake (or four) from our favorite cupcake purveyor, The Cupcake Collection. I have to admit, it's not the worst way to spend my birthday.

Between the boutiques around town and the Mall, there are tons of discounts happening, so consider this your special sale post for the week. Here is the list of stores in the Mall at Green Hills and their events for the evening.

Happy Olympics! What did you think about the opening ceremonies? I say "bravo, Danny Boyle, bravo." The Queen, Sir Paul, Daniel Craig, Becks, Mr. Bean (my personal fave), the fireworks...the Queen's corgis...it was whimsical, a bit eccentric, and overall pretty fantastic.

Weekly Guide to Nashville Boutique Sales & Events - July 21-22

The next few weeks are busy ones for Nashville Scene events, so the sale posts will probably be a little late. In the meantime, make sure you check out the Stella Shops Nashville Boutiques page. There is a quick list of sales by neighborhood there that I'll be sure to update daily. I hope to see some of you this week at the Nashville Scene's Sugar Rush on Wednesday night (it's sold out!) and Thursday night we'll be at Marathon Music Works for the second installment of our Sounds Like Summer Concert Series. Guided By Voices is the headliner and 90's college radio DJ me is still staring at my Doc Marten's in disbelief that I'm actually going to get to see this band. Tickets are only $20. It's going to be an amazing show with Nashville's Turbo Fruits opening up. Get your tickets at Marathon Music Works.
