· Monday, September 15, marks the beginning of the annual Indian Summer sale at Marmalade (1843 Union Street). Find discounts up to 70 percent off original prices on all seasonal inventory like shorts and tanks. It's perfect timing to wear less fabric with the gorgeous, pre-autumn weather that's on tap. So stock up and wear often.
· It's a Hello Kitty blowout sale at the CitiGarden Hotel (245 South Airport Boulevard, South San Francisco) this Saturday, from 9am to 5pm, and Sunday, from 10am to 3pm. Everything will be up to 70 percent off. It's the ideal opportunity to come to terms with Sanrio's proclamation that Hello Kitty is not a cat—you'll feel better about it after some major savings on everyone's favorite cat-like cartoon. Bonus: free parking will be provided at the hotel.
· The Mason Jar (2149 Union Street) will also kick off its end of summer sale on Monday. All summer scents—think candles, bath salts, soaps, handwashes, and more—will be 15 percent off until everything is gone. So rejoice, lovers of gardenia or jasmine or lavender; those stockpiles can be replenished.
