With the change in weather, we can all now feel the chill in the air. Fall is here and it's time to get ready. This weekend, there are a number of sales and fall events going on, so be sure to check them all out. Whether you're looking for a great new pair of jeans or you need some fall inspiration, I've got just the thing for you.
Monkees of Morrocroft kicked off the Elizabeth McKay Trunk Show yesterday, but no worries, it runs through Saturday. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Carolina Breast Friends. www.monkeesofmorrocroft.com
Her Therapy in Ballantyne is having a great sale for those of us who love to layer during the fall and winter. You can out it on thick with their 60% off wall of 3 Dots tees available in tanks, short sleeves and long sleeves. www.hertherapy.com
The new Seven for All Mankind store in SouthPark will be taking 30 percent off this Saturday from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. during Simon Fashion Now Show, where my daughter, the "mini stylemayvin," will be making her first runway debut. And if you need more of a reason to attend, the Seven store will have a DJ and free champagne! SouthPark Mall
Come out to St. John Boutique for a Fall Fashion Presentation this Saturday. St John Stylist Donna Ann will be in the boutique from 12 p.m.-5 p.m. for individual styling, fashion presentation at 3pm.
