EAST VILLAGE—Starting tomorrow and running every Thursday for the rest of the summer, old-timey housewares shop Old Village Hall is dedicating itself to The Great Gatsby. Mention the word "Fitzgerald" for 20% off all purchases, and get a free F. Scott tote if you spend over $150. And since it's not really a Gatsby party without a lot of free alcohol, the store will be serving complimentary mint juleps after 4pm. [Racked Inbox]
SOHO—Sounds like Chanel's makeover is coming along nicely. Reports a tipster: "Walked by this morning and there are cool double C shades over the windows. The door was open and I saw inside—it's completely cleaned out and raw." [RackedWire; Previously]
