WILL YOU BE IN OR OUT – Macy’s Fashion Challenge Featuring Jay McCarroll

Do you think you can put together an outfit as good as Project Runway Season 1 winner Jay McCarroll? Now is your chance to find out. He’ll be picking a few shoppers to put together spring looks that will then march down the runway to be judged by onlookers. The winner will get a $100 gift card to spend in the store on spring must-haves!  Saturday at 2 p.m. at Macy’s in SouthPark Mall.

LOOKIN’ LOVELY AT THE LAKE Sidewalk Sale at Birkdale Village

In case it’s been a while since you shopped up on Lake Norman, allow me to remind you about the retail paradise that awaits you at Birkdale:  Banana Republic, Gap, White House Black Market, Maddi’s Gallery, Bella Ropa and more. This Saturday is their sidewalk sale when nearly every store in the joint will be offering discounts of 10%, 25% or more on your purchases. Bella Ropa will also be having a trunk sale featuring local label Hems & Hers, so don’t miss out!

PUT IT ON ICE – Goodwill Fashion Show and Clothing Drive at Charlotte Checkers Game

As a proud closet-purger, I donate to Goodwill on nearly a monthly basis. Normally all I get in return for my donation is a) the satisfaction of knowing I did a good thing b) a receipt for taxes that I will almost certainly forget to fill out or lose and c) a cleaner closet. This weekend, however, I can get something more, and so can you! Donate your gently used clothing items at the Checkers game at Time Warner Cable Arena this Saturday you’ll get a free ticket to a future Charlotte Checkers game!  During halftime the Checkmates (one of my favorite "cheerleader" names in sports history) will model outfits pulled straight from Goodwill’s collection of fabulous (and affordable) finds!
