You’re invited to Ruth Shaw Boutique in the Village of Cross Keys on May 24-25 to get a first look at the gorgeous line-up of fall/winter fashion from Dorothee Schumacher.
Check out Lafayette 148’s 2015 Resort line at Chezelle in the Village of Cross Keys this weekend and enjoy 10% off trunk show purchases and orders. Also in Cross Keys, J. Jill is offering an extra 30% off sale items until October 13th and at Chico’s Fall Sale, everything in the store is 25% to 60% off.
There are sales galore this weekend, thanks to the Baltimore Fashion Alliance’s TRENDSITIONS Shop Local event.
But before you map out your route for hitting every participating boutique, be sure to pencil in a stop at the Sympli Trunk Show, presented by Jones & Jones now through Sunday! You may even want to time your appearance to coincide with the Village of Cross Keys Fall Fashion Show.
If you’re heading to Shawan Downs on September 27, head to Halcyon House for equestrian-themed linens, portable plates, sporty cutlery and all you need for a pretty picnic spread.
As for the TRENDSITIONS event…Saturday, September 20th, you can snag super deals (along with light bites and tasty sips) at some of the city’s top independent boutiques. Most participating shops are offering at least 20% discounts on a variety of merchandise. Be sure to check out:

Anyone not doing anything right now? If that’s you, throw on your what-I-wear-when-I-know-I’m-going-to-be-trying-on-clothes clothes and run right out the door to the trunk show happening at Fresh! Boutique. Fresh! Boutique, (which might ring a bell as the winner of the “Best of Baltimore” spot for buying party dresses) is hosting (today) a trunk show with the ABS line from Allen Schwartz. The line features a variety of dresses that run the gamut from day to cocktail style to evening wear—and they’re all perfect for the holiday season.
And in keeping with today’s themes of “Happening Right Now” and “Instant Gratification,” anything you buy at the trunk show you get to take home with you that day (er… today). No ordering, no waiting, no weeks of longing pouts directed at the UPS guy (unless of course you’re into that kind of thing). Any dress you try on today, you can go home with. Which means you could wear it out this weekend, or to meet the parents at Thanksgiving. Stop by any time today before 7pm for refreshments, door prizes, and a 10% discount on any dress purchased.
The ABS trunk show takes place today, November 15th from 12pm-7pm at Fresh! Boutique. Fresh! Boutique is located in Green Spring Station at 10749 Falls Road in Lutherville.
Resilience. Will. The strength to go on. These are the human qualities often tested in the wake of natural disasters. When things get turned upside down, we get to see what we (and those around us) are made of. That being said, Superstorm (nee Hurricane) Sandy left most of us Baltimoreans relatively unscathed. Sure, we maybe got a reality check about how watertight (or not) our basement really is, or how long we could realistically live without the Internet (anyone else top out at a minute and a half?), but of course, it could have been much worse. For example, the Peter Cohen trunk show at Ruth Shaw could have been flat out cancelled. And what kind of message would that send? Are we going to let a little weather stand in the way of such a fashion opportunity? Of course not. This is how we show our mettle.
So kudos to Ruth Shaw for extending the only Peter Cohen trunk show in the region. The event, originally scheduled to have ended yesterday, will now run through Friday afternoon. Cohen’s designs are known for their sleek, simple silhouettes and uber-luxurious fabrics. This is a unique opportunity to snag some great pieces by the designer, so be sure to make it down there. Show the weather that no matter how it might try to keep you down, a true fashionista’s will to shop will always (of course) triumph.
The Peter Cohen Trunk Show takes place at Ruth Shaw from 10am-6pm today and tomorrow. Ruth Shaw is located in the Village of Cross Keys, 68 Village Square, Baltimore.
Our unscientific research informs us that you want more event and shopping coverage. Today we introduce two new features to give you more of both: Catch of the Day and Hooked: Events to Put on Your Line. Each will let you know about what’s buzz-worthy — new restaurants, store openings, trunk shows, products, art shows, book readings, whatever catches our fancy. Again, it’s unscientific.
If you want your place or thing to get notice as a Catch of the Day, please let us know by email at [email protected] If you would like your event featured in Hooked, you’ll have to put it on the events page; we’ll only select from among the events on our events page. Shoot us an email too if you want us to take special notice.
Thanks for reading.
