Did you watch Game of Thrones last night? No spoilers in this D Magazine blog post, but I will say that, personally, I’d like to have something to look forward to now. Something easy, breezy, and purely trivial, like enjoying champagne and macarons at Tory Burch. Maybe that sounds good to you, too.
If so, you’re in luck, dear reader. And if you’re like, Nah, nerd, I don’t watch GOT, you’re still in luck! In addition to Highland Park Village’s monthly artisan market LOCAL, they’ll be hosting an all-day Spring Shopping Stroll. It’s the third time around for the annual event, so you might know the drill from years past, but if not, expect essentially every store in the Village to be offering something—a fun incentive to inspire you to stop in, to shop, or just enjoy what looks to be a somewhat-drizzly-but-still-warm spring Dallas day.
This year, Veronica Beard will feature a pop-up brut rosé bar by Impeccable, Lela Rose is spiking some lemonade, and both Bandier and Rag and Bone are offering complimentary embroidery. Shoppers can enter to win gift cards at The Juice Bar or The Tot, and score 20 percent off any purchase at Theory. Alice + Olivia is going all in on New Taylor Swift’s version of spring with custom tie-dye and “rainbow treats.” It’s a lot (plus, there’s that adorable artisan market in there from 9am to 1pm). See below for the full list of reasons to enjoy some weekend shopping (or some preemptive retail therapy ahead of Sunday’s finale for my fellow nerds).
