Event Alert: Erin Gates Shopping Party at Cynthia Rowley

164 Newbury Street, Boston

Boston interior designer, stylist, and blogger Erin Gates of Elements of Style is hosting a shopping party next week at Cynthia Rowley on Newbury Street. Unfortunately I’ll be out of town (well, not so unfortunate, I’ll be in NYC) but if you’re interested in attending, let Erin know. You’ll get 20 percent off your purchases that evening. There are some great fall looks. I’m especially loving the  prints and fringe.

Deal Alert: 20% Discount at Hudson

Jill Goldberg, owner of Hudson (and brand new mommy to baby Dylan) is offering a rare treat – 20% off  all in-stock items at both boutiques, through Sunday, May 16th. A Mother’s Day treat indeed. I happened to be over there a couple of weeks ago, snapping plenty of pictures. What’s catching your eye? I’m loving the bumblebee pillow.

Deal Alert: Cynthia Rowley Sample Sale in Boston

I was so excited when Cynthia Rowley opened a boutique on Newbury last year. Partially because it reminds me of my twenties in New York City; one of my favorite charity gala dresses is a Cynthia Rowley. I’m doubtful I will ever squeeze into its size 2-ness, yet I will never part with it. That said, I’ve hardly bought a thing at this still new shop. Well, now’s my chance. The Boston sample sale starts tomorrow and goes through Sunday, 10am to 9pm (really, in Boston, 9pm?!), up to 80% off on clothing and accessories. See ya there.
