OLD CITY—Hold onto your butts. Old City women's designer boutique Third Street Habit is hosting a Summer Kickoff Party on Friday night that promises one-night-only discounts. Store manager Liz Pizzo tells us summer accessories (bracelets, handbags, and scarves) will be reduced by 20% and up during the fete.
For example, Chan Luu's leather and turquoise beaded bracelet will be marked down to $128 from $168, and the shop's best-selling linen tassel scarves by Love Quotes will be 20% off. "There will also be some fun summer statement jewelry on sale from Bing Bang, and beach bags from JadeTribe and Jas M.B.," Lizzo says. The party is from 6pm to 9pm this Friday, June 7. [Racked Inbox]
