Today and tomorrow, you can spend big to save big at Stanley Korshak.
Buy multiple things from the women’s sale (which is already discounted up to 40 percent off) and tack on an extra 10 percent off.
Multiples that count:
-3 or more pieces in apparel (if you insist)
-2 or more pairs of shoes (that’s easy)
-2 or more handbags (like I needed an excuse)
Numer One/Le Jus is the only store of its kind in our city. It’s a hybrid combo of organic cafe, boutique, and apothecary. Owners Brian Bolke (of Forty Five Ten and Five & Ten) and Dana Card (of Le Jus juices) are offering a sophisticated but earthy respite where you can relax with a fresh, organic, cold-pressed juice, a grain free lemon poppyseed muffin, and a magazine from their killer selection of international and indie titles. (Like British Vogue, Dwell, and The Gentlewoman.) Then, shop at your leisure through the racks of wardrobe staples by thoughtful design lines. Browse skinny jeans by Victoria Beckham, outerwear (like a military green zip-front poncho) by Greg Lauren, cashmere sweaters with silk hoods by Kristensen Du Nord, cotton scoop and v-neck tees by The Lady and The Sailor, and an in-house, Number One collection of cotton long sleeve shirts and cropped sweatshirts. A selection of jewelry includes everything from light and dainty charms to chunky necklaces made from leather disks. I’m particularly drawn to the apothecary side, a compilation of all sorts of delicious smelling goodness, like Forty Five Ten’s own candle trio, Le Feu de L’eu candles in funky jars, Aesop body creams (including a tea tree-infused dog wash), and Agonist fragrances. Each perfume is more unique than the last–I smelled each one. I highly recommend you stop by this weekend to grab a juice–like the La Vie Melange greens and juice mix–and bring your “nice” shopping list. You’ll be able to cross off a few names, I bet. But first, check out first peek at the shop.

We sampled the Monsieur Palmer, a green tea and grapefruit juice and ginger concoction, and the La Vie Melange greens and juice combo. Juices will rotate, but we were lucky enough to have the pineapple, jalapeno, and cilantro version today. Most surprising was the La Vie No. 1 green blend with 11 vegetable ingredients. I can solidly say this is the best green juice I’ve ever had.
Remember when I told you all about American fragrance line United Scents of America and its hearty, woodsy, fresh, bewitchingly androgynous Texas perfume? Applause goes to the top notes of ruby red orange, a heart of red cedar, and bottom notes of musk, cedar leaf, and amber. It’s kind of magical, and I love spraying it for my fragrance-loving friends, who all have the same pleasantly surprised reaction as I had. It’s at once masculine and sexy and sweet and feminine. I’m happy that I have one to give away today because I just know that you’ll love it.
