GREENWICH VILLAGE—We'll admit to being interested in Owl's Lab in part because it used to be run by Megan, the villain from Elle's reality show Stylista, but if that strange fact has piqued your curiosity as much as it has ours, do stop by the store this Saturday, February 28, when handbag designer Carlos Falchi hosts a trunk show. The event runs 12pm to 5pm at 20 East 12th Street, and there are hors d'oeuvres involved. [Racked Inbox]
TRIBECA—Under the cutesy name "We Heart Tribeca," downtown businesses Babylicious, miniMasters, Tribbles Home & Garden, Real Pilates and Blue Bench have banned together to share discounts in an attempt to keep local money in the neighborhood.
