LOWER EAST SIDE—Shop loves to throw parties, so of course they're not letting the holidays go by without an event. Tomorrow night from 6pm to 9pm at 94 Orchard Street, they'll be selling everything in the store at up to 80% off, raffling off jewelry, handing out free tote bags, and serving champagne.

SOHO—Silver Lining Opticians, on 100 Thompson between Spring and Prince Streets, is holding an eyewear drive. Bring them a pair of used but non-abused frames, and they'll give you 50% off the price of lenses for your next purchase. The glasses go to One Sight, a New Jersey charity that donates eyewear to people who need it in developing countries. [Racked Inbox]
