MANHATTAN—Clean out your lingerie drawer this month by bringing in an old bra (or a few) to any of Journelle's four locations. They'll donate it to Free the Girls, an organization that helps human trafficking survivors in Mozambique find entrepreneurship opportunities and secondary income. Plus, you'll get 20% off your purchase of a new bra for your generosity, and if you donate at the Upper East Side store on March 7th (11am—3pm) or the Soho store on March 21st (9am—1pm), you'll get a bottle of their Linden lingerie wash, too.
MIDTOWN EAST—The Brooklyn-based Elsa and Me, a company that creates custom dresses for both work and play, is headed to the Roger Smith Hotel for a month-long pop-up shop. It's the first time the e-commerce site is going brick-and-mortar, so stop by through March 31st to create your own piece with a customized neckline and sleeves. Head here for more information on booking a group fitting.
