SOHO, LOWER EAST SIDE—We love when our favorite stores are friends. All month long, a purchase of $300 or more at Veda (19 Mercer Street) gets you a free plant and planter or a gift card to The Sill (84 Hester Street).
SOHO—From now until Wednesday at midnight, Soho menswear shop Carson Street Clothiers is offering 30% off outerwear and tailoring services—plus, if you end up spending more than $1,000, you'll get an additional 15% off. Shopping online? Be sure to use the code EX15.
MANHATTAN—Local jewelry designer Pauletta Brooks is holding a trunk show for the next three evenings, with both full-price and sale items featuring natural minerals and raw stones, plus wine and light bites while you shop. RSVP to email@example.com for the sale's location and hours.
NOLITA, WEST VILLAGE—Meet Margaret (of Margaret O'Leary) at her two boutiques tomorrow between 5pm and 8pm in Nolita and next Tuesday, May 12th at the same time at her Bleecker Street store. You'll get to preview her latest spring collection, with the added bonus of champagne.
UPPER EAST SIDE—Just in time for Mother's Day, the Calvin Klein Collection store is hosting floral artist Lauren Messelian starting today from 2pm to 6pm and every day through Sunday. There'll be two arrangements—a tiny sweet pea bud for $100 or a medium-sized one for $175. Both arrive in a ceramic vase produced by artist Christiane Perrechon in collaboration with Calvin Klein Home.
