This Week's Style Events

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Wed, Feb 12, 2014 at 12:59 PM

The rescheduled events are coming in, and while your neighborhood bar might've hauled in a pretty penny over the snowpocalyptic weekend, local retail is hurting after having to shutter for those unplanned days. So here's what they're doing for ya this week (and as always, a steady stream of news, profiles, and pretty pictures is a'flowing every day over on MOD):

WEDNESDAY, FEB 12 (AKA TODAY)

Backtalk is offering up tarot readings "for lovers" from Psychic Siamese Terror at $10 per reading, plus a trunk show of doTERRA International essential oils. They're calling it, "An Aromatic Orgasm." Backtalk, 3962 N Mississippi, 6-9 pm

Nationale is putting their accessories and beauty products on discount today through Friday, with a special gift on purchases of $20 or more—as ever, they've got gobs of sophisticated, simple, and way-not-cheesy ideas for intellectuals of any gender and persuasion. Nationale, 811 E Burnside

Palace has also moved its previously scheduled Lovers Sale to today and tomorrow, with tons of discounts and gift bags made special Portland Apothecary. Palace, 828 SE 24th

THURSDAY, FEB 13

Wildfang is hosting a "tomboy happy hour" at its SE Portland store with complimentary PBR and Union Wine, plus a "paper airplane challenge" that can earn you 25% percent off your purchase. Wildfang, 1230 SE Grand, 5-7 pm

Solestruck is kicking off a month-long pop-up shop featuring the LA-based Stone Cold Fox tonight with a liver performance by Guantanamo Baywatch plus the requisite refreshments. (We've also got an interview with Solestruck's Maya Dahlgreen about the pairing up on MOD this morning). Solestruck, 417 SW 13th, 7-10 pm

Jane's Vanity is setting up shop at the downtown Mario's for a two-day V-day trunk show, which should take care of most, if not all, of your high-end lingerie needs for the time being. Mario's, 833 SW Broadway, Thurs & Fri, noon-6 pm

FRIDAY, FEB 14

Jahdess Bless, the Honey Owens/Kenna Gair vintage joint usually located at House of Vintage is throwing a pop-up sale with some of their other vendor friends, plus wine, "jams," a raffle, and so forth. The Vortex at Everett St. Lofts, 328 NW Broadway #114, 7 pm

SATURDAY, FEB 15

—Originally scheduled for last weekend, Eve in Eden is featuring a trunk show with celebrated bridal designer Sunjin Lee and Acanthus Jewelry. Good for brides and lovers of pretty things, plus the rest of Eden's curiosities are always worth a perusal. Eden, 221 NW 11th, noon

—Studio collective The Makery is hosting its annual Spring Seconds Sale, with "irregular, out-dated, or slightly defective pieces" being sold at huge discounts. Look for deals from a great lineup of local makers of ceramics, paper goods, accessories, clothing, textiles, lighting and more, like Pigeon Toe, Make It Good, Sara Barner, Mazama, Mag-Big, and more. The Cleaners at the Ace Hotel, 1022 SW Stark, 11 am-4 pm

And on a final note, Supportland is also stepping up to help support these businesses post-closure, offering double points on their rewards system all day Friday:
