DOWNTOWN—Thursday through Sunday, it's the Rachel Pally warehouse sale. Up to 85% off retail, and a portion of sales go to the Japan relief efforts. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 10am to 6pm; Sunday 11am to 4pm. 2301 E. 7th Ave, Suite C100. [Racked Inbox]
DOWNTOWN—Another tried and trusted sale: Junior Drake. Crazy deals, including a selection of satin bags that are 3 for $79. At those prices, why not buy a dozen? Friday and Saturday, 10am to 7pm, Sunday 10am to 5pm. 740 E. 60th St.
ALL OVER LA—Since the sun looks like it's going to stick around for a while, might it be time for a new pair of flipflops? Yes, it is. Don't hang on to your grody old pair: take them to an LA-area Old Navy, who, in conjunction with TerraCycle, will recycle them by turning them into children's playgrounds. And while you're there, stock up, since flipflops are two pairs for $5. Program goes through May 21. [Racked Inbox]
