EAST VILLAGE—Quirky jewelry line VeraMeat is throwing an April Fool's tea party. On Sunday, April 1 from 2pm to 5pm, get 30% off necklaces, earrings, and rings plus all the tea you can drink at 324 E. 14th Street, Apartment 1A—VeraMeat's private backyard. There's just one catch: You have to wear a dress or a skirt. (No word on whether this applies to dudes as well.) But if you're allergic to dress codes or busy that afternoon, you can shop the same deals online now through Sunday using the code "APRIL FOOLS" at checkout. [Refinery29]
DUMBO—Housewares boutique Modern Anthology and vintage vendor BKLYN Dry Goods are kicking off their combo sale/pop-up shop with an in-store party tomorrow night to celebrate "the end of the winter that never was." From 7pm to 10pm, they'll be serving three Sixpoint beers (including Resin, which is new) as shoppers browse deals on decor and preview new menswear and accessories collaborations from BKLYN Dry Goods. After the party, the sale continues through Sunday, April 1. [RackedWire]
