PACIFIC HEIGHTS—On Saturday, March 22 from 2 to 5pm, the Alice + Olivia store at 2259 Fillmore Street is celebrating its 2 year anniversary with—bien sur—champagne. Julie Engel of Gal Meets Glam will be on hand to help customers style their looks, and DJ Monica Santucci will be spinning tunes. And customers who spend $300 or more will ge $50 off their entire purchase—it all adds up to an event not to be missed.
MARINA—H.D. Buttercup is having a blow-out sale extravaganza this weekend, now through March 23, at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion (2 Marina Boulevard) with furniture and rugs up to 70% off. It's the first time HD Buttercup's global curators have brought all of their goods to one location. You'll find 500 sofas, 1,000+ one-of-a-kind rugs and lots more. Have kiddos? Excellent news: there will be a children's area (this should be required in all shopping establishments in our opinions). Plus they'll have live entertainment, food trucks, and booze. It's happening today and tomorrow from 9am to 7pm (drinks start at 2), and Sunday from 10am to 5pm (drinks start at 11am). Get even more details here.
