Midtown Village soap kitchen/beauty boutique Duross & Langel has two awesome events on the agenda today: Beginning at 11am and ending promptly at 1pm, the shop will bring select items outdoors for a Sidewalk Sale that promises a "doozy of a deal" on last-season candles and misfit product (soaps, hair products, lotions, et al). For those who can't make the sale, a discount is being extended online: Take 20% off your purchase with code 2DAYSALE and score free shipping on orders over $50, but act fast: This promo code is only valid Thursday, June 20, and Friday, June 21.
Then tonight from 6pm to 8pm, Duross & Langel will host 30-minute Lip Balm Workshops in its upstairs soap kitchen. Get your hands dirty learning how D&L makes its 100% natural lip balms, and go home with a free sample of tropical or fruity lip balm in your pocket. Bring your eagerness to learn, but check your 'tude at the door: "Our board in the shop reads, 'No drunks, No crybabies, No sass,' warns Duross & Langel co-owner Steve Duross.
