UPPER EAST SIDE—For the remaining Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays in October, Fix Beauty Bar on Lexington Avenue is offering free manicures or 20% off gel manicures when you and a friend stop by for a blowout. Ten percent of the final check-out price will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, so anything extra you add—pedicures, head massages—will all be for a good cause. Head to their website to book an appointment. [RackedWire]
MIDTOWN EAST—At the new Ted Baker store tomorrow night, author and business style expert Carol Roth will be offering tips on how to put together sleek, not-dumpy outfits appropriate for the office. Shoppers will also get a 15% off discount and a complimentary limited-edition tote with any purchase of $200 while supplies last. There will also be a contest for a $300 gift card.
