Get a taste of France with the relaunch of the L'Occitane boutique inside the Time Warner Center, where the beauty brand will be hosting special deals all weekend long. The first 100 customers to make a $25 purchase on Friday will receive makeup bag full of travel-size products, and shoppers can receive complimentary beverages from Kusmi Tea and a choice of gift with purchase (shea hand butter or a cookie!), while supplies last. Plus, all purchases are 15% off all weekend long.
The store will also give out a major prize to whomever gives the closest guess of the number of flowers in the "golden sun" chandelier, seen above—a $500 shopping spree.
