Starting today (Thursday, August 25), Anne Hung Boutique (829 Queen West) - chosen by NOW readers as best local fashion designer for 2004 - holds a massively slashed 25 to 50 per cent off sale on all its sassy yet sophisticated summer fashions. Pretty dresses? Check. Party tops? Yup. Sexy skirts? Those, too, plus way more. 416-364-7251, www.annehung.com.
Lush Cosmetics (312 Queen West) never, ever, ever has sales. So tonight's (Thursday, August 25) Treat Your Feet Party, where - that's right - your tired dogs are the guests of honour, is kind of a big deal. There'll be sampling, promotions, foot pampering and the potential to win fantastic prizes. Plus, the store is open for an extra two hours to ensure that the office crowd get their share of super-scented goodies. (Be warned: if you're the allergic type, the very fragrant offerings might be a little much for sensitive noses.) 7 to 9 pm. 416-599-5874, www.lush.com.
Whoa. It's not often you come across a who's who of international trendster labels under one roof. (Let's just name-drop for a sec, shall we?: UK's Ozwald Boateng, Italy's Sacred Blue and Spain's Muxart.) That's what you'll find at the relatively new boutique Kamakazi (744 Queen West). And to find said brands (okay, just the spring/summer stuff) reduced by up to 60 per cent? Why, that's just unheard of. The sale lasts until Labour Day, so hustle. 416-304-0887.
With weather reports pointing to an unseasonably warm autumn, don't abandon your patio just yet. Rumah (668 Queen West) offers up to half off on summer clearance items including fab garden furniture, decorative planters and charming lanterns. 416-703-4594.
