A few tidbits for the fashionistas out there:
• Like a live Colorado Springs Vogue magazine: Check out Colorado Co-op's Spring Fashion Show, Thursday, April 28 and Friday, April 29, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the store at 315 N. Tejon St. Runway models will present the best new trends for spring, while you snack and sip on treats and beverages. And every attendee will receive 20 percent off any one full-priced item in the shop. Space is limited, so RSVP here with your name and preferred evening.
• Now through Sunday, May 1, Eve's, at 1312 W. Colorado Ave., is selling all scarves and jewelry for 50 percent off. And starting May 2, shop hours will be extended for the summer: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. If your mom's the type to enjoy bubbly while she shops, take her to Eve's for Mother's Day for some great sales and treats.
• I'd be remiss if I didn't pump one more event (full disclosure: it's Indy-sponsored and I'm on the organizing committee). Repeat Boutique Spring 2011, a fundraiser for the Pikes Peak Justice and Peace Commission, is also this weekend, Friday, April 29, from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A massive clothing/accessories/shoes/jewelry/etc. swap for all the ladies out there, Repeat Boutique invites you to bring your gently used items and swap them for as many "new-to-you" items as you can use.
