As in every turn of season, the sales and events are starting to roll in. This week alone there are summer deals to be had from the hotties at Siljan, Mink, and Lille Boutique, with more coming down the pipeline. It's not just clothing, either: There are special events and deals coming up on things like camping and audio gear from a whole variety of local retailers:
—Mink just started their summer dress sale, with 15% off all dresses this week only! Good through Sunday.
- A nice little number from Weston Wear
—Lille Boutique's end of season sale is officially on, with up to 80% off on lines like Araks, VPL, and Wolford(!).
FRIDAY, JUNE 22
—Shop Adorn hosts a trunk show for San Francisco eco-brand Amour Vert, offering drinks, snacks, and 15% off AV pieces from 4-9 pm.
SATURDAY, JUNE 23
—Yo Vintage! is celebrating the grand opening of their new brick 'n' mortar in the Blackbox building, in conjunction with Solestruck's kick-off party for their latest trunk show, featuring JC Handbags and TSHORTS—that'll be 7-10 pm. Speaking of Solestruck, their 8th anniversary sale is now on, with up to 80% off through June 24!
—Amy Sacks Eyewear is setting up at Tilde from 1-4 pm for Eyewear for Animals, a trunk show fundraiser for the Pixie Project. They'll be offering 15% off their frames, readers, and sunglasses, and taking $10 off Rx orders during the event, but I say donate it right back at 'em.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27
—The self-described "old grey mare" of the West End part of downtown, Echo Audio recently made a switch of address (but in the same building) to 1015 SW Washington, in the former Narcisse space and right next to Frances May. They're celebrating with hors d'oeuvres, drinks, hi-fi giveaways, displays of interesting equipment and art, and an "unbelievable $75K system" will be soundtracking all night.
