Celebrating five years in the Philly fashion biz, Arcadia Boutique is throwing a birthday bash on Friday, September 7. On the docket? Complimentary drinks and noshes, music from DJ Yolo Ono, and a "Charm Bar" where partygoers can create their own custom jewelry. The event will also fete the opening of Arcadia's in-store fall art show featuring works by local mixed media artist Natalie Flor Negron. Best of all, the boutique will offer 15 percent off apparel and footwear, giving shoppers the perfect opportunity to pounce on new autumn styles from under-the-radar labels like Heather, Hyden Yoo, Kelly Lane, and Micaela Greg. The party will be held at Arcadia's Northern Liberties location, from 6 p.m.- 9 p.m.
For more fall essentials at a discount, shop Denim Habit's Friends & Family Sale. Through Sunday, September 9, shoppers can take 20 percent off everything in the store. Look for new jeans from designer denim brands like Citizens of Humanity, DL1961, Genetic, Henry & Belle, and Hudson, then peruse the shop's inventory of apparel from contemporary labels that include Ella Moss, Free People, Textile by Elizabeth and James, and Michael Stars. Philly's closest Denim Habit location is in Ardmore, within the Suburban Square shopping center.
