Whether or not you're stoked for the start of a new semester, back-to-school sales are one silver lining as the end of summer (sadly) draws near. To soften the sounds of those ringing school bells, Teen Vogue is teaming up with cool UK store Topshop and others for a big shopping bash at The Grove this weekend.
Kicking off this Friday, August 9th, the two-day event takes off at 4pm (don't be late!) with a fall runway show hosted by the teen mag's editor Amy Astley and Disney star Bella Thorne. Then, Brit girl group Little Mix will take the stage as shoppers get treated to manicures, mini makeovers and more.
The festivities continue Saturday, August 10th from 1pm to 5pm at Topshop, where students with a school ID can nab 20% off and partake in a scavenger hunt for prizes while they shop. Over at Kate Spade, enjoy sweet treats from Sidecar Donuts as the cute boutique toasts its collab with NY-based artist Darcel. All the while, there'll be plenty of action throughout The Grove (including a DIY tee-making booth with English e-tailer ASOS) to keep guests busy in between spending sprees.
Not in LA? OC peeps get their own parties at the South Coast Plaza and Irvine Spectrum on Saturday with 20% off at department chain Nordstrom. For the full sched of happenings in LA and OC, visit the Back to School Saturday event page here.
