MONTCO—British clothing label Boden is crossing the pond for a special warehouse sale at the Philadelphia Expo Center (100 Station Avenue, Hall C). The sale will offer substantial savings on the brand's print-happy clothing, accessories, and shoes for men, women, and kids. The event takes place from 10 am to 4pm on Saturday, but you'd be well advised to show up bright and early—we hear these sales are mayhem. [Racked Inbox]
