SILVER LAKE—Moms and little ones alike will love the retail extravaganza Shinola (3515 Sunset Boulevard) has planned for Saturday. Grown ups can sip adult beverages and peruse the boutique's selection of handsome watches and wares while the kiddos partake in cookies and cider. And just maybe while the tykes distracted, mamas can pick up a few of the cool children's clothing and accessories (we literally CAN'T with the adorable glassbead necklaces and drop-crotch pants!) from Over + Over's in-store pop-up. The 2-4pm event, hosted by actress and supermom Busy Phillips and stylist Lawren Howell, will benefit the non-profit organization Baby2Baby, which aids children in low income families.
BEVERLY GROVE—West 3rd Street is celebrating the holidays with a night of in-store discounts and promotions throughout the array of boutiques, eateries, beauty shops and more that make this a prime location to grab gifts galore. This Thursday from 5-9pm, cruise the shopping strip to find deals like a free Bar Method (8416 W 3rd Street) class (offer valid on any class this weekend when you stop by the welcome desk), 20% off the sweet kid's gear at Eggy (8365 W 3rd Street), a free cupcake when you spend $10 or more at Sweet E's Bake Shop (8215 W 3rd Street), and oh so much more. Stay tunes to the street's Facebook page for details and the increasing list of participating businesses. And don't stress about finding a meter, public valet parking will be available.
