NEW SHOP ON THE BLOCK
Scoop NYC
(44 Highland Park Village, 214-521-1900) recently opened in Highland Park Village, providing style-savvy women and kids with another resource to fill their dream closets. Scoop’s private label and exclusive designs by Alice & Olivia, Diane Von Furstenberg, Earnest Sewn, Theory, Thread, and Lee Angel are just some of the unique fashions you won’t find anywhere else in town. Scoop up a pair of fab flats in patent, tweed, velvet, or suede (at only $95, they’re a bargain) and the new floral fragrance for women, with a hint of musk that will melt any man’s heart.

SUPER SALES
No one loves a bargain quite like we do, so we can’t wait for the end-of-season sale at Gas, a temporary shop in the old Premium 93 space in West Village, from December 26 to February 1. Fall and winter fashions from Premium 93, which has relocated to owner Ort Varona’s new megastore, LFT, and Octane, which is getting a facelift and will reopen in February, will be marked down a whopping 75 percent. Expect to see such labels as Chip & Pepper, Daryl K, Ella Moss, Mint, Ted Baker, and Wyeth. Speaking of sales, now that we have Barneys again, we can spend all of our Christmas money at the Barneys Blowout. Merchandise is 60 percent off now and will be marked down by 75 percent starting January 11. Find savings in every department, from men’s, women’s, and co-op to shoes, accessories, and home furnishings. Nordstrom is holding its annual Men’s Half Yearly Sale through January 6, so hurry in for 33 percent off (or more) on apparel and shoes for men from lines like Marc Jacobs, Theory, Joseph Abboud, and Kenneth Cole. Tooties is also clearing out its store to make way for spring merchandise. For 10 days this month, select fall and winter items by Nicole Miller, Ralph Lauren, Lela Rose, Roberto Cavalli, Chloe, and Via Spiga, among others, will be 50 to 80 percent off. We’ll see you there.
