BEVERLY CENTER—Select Bloomies will be home to a Ted Baker shop-within-a-shop. While some locations have both the men's and women's collection, Bev Center just has the women's (for now). And the Beverly Center Bloomie's is having something like a grand opening party Thursday night, with cupcakes, champagne, tunes, gifts with purchase and more. It's 6pm to 8pm, in the new Ted Baker shop. [Racked Inbox]

SANTA MONICA—MAC is launching a new collection called Surf, Baby! so naturally, they have to do it by the beach. At the MAC store at Third Street Promenade, to be specific. This entire weekend, there's fun to be had: bands, mini-makeovers and body painting, and more. The festivities are all day long, but here is the band lineup: Saturday Tijuana Panthers at 6pm, Sunday Vanaprasta at 6pm, and Monday the Smiles play at 6pm. 1325 Third Street Promenade [Racked Inbox]
