Weekend shopping
It's 13 days till Christmas, kids!

Sold at ritzy places like Language, Alice Temperley's fancy cashmere scarves, sweaters, and such are 20 percent off. 12/12-12/13; 11-6; 453 Broome St., 2nd fl.

Starting tomorrow, one of my favorite boutiques, Dernier Cri, is having a sale of 10%-25% off. They have a funky (but accessible) selection of rock-chick clothes from Daryl K, FrostFrench, and others. The sale goes through Christmas Eve. Hours: noon-8, Sundays 12:30-7:30; 869 Washington St. (13th and 14th Sts.).

While you're in the Meatpacking District for Dernier Cri, check out Rubin Chapelle's sale, with merchandise up to 60% off: Coats are now $350 (from $920), party frocks are $300 (formerly $750), boots are $240 (were $490), and sweaters are $160 (were $400). Friday 11-8, Saturday noon-7; 410 W. 14th Street (9th Ave. and Washington St.), lower level.

I'm not the hugest fan of Balenciaga, but I know a lot of people are. Starting Sunday, the fall line is a whopping 60% off. Hours: 11-7, Sundays noon-5; 542 W. 22nd St. (10th and 11th Aves.).

The Apartment, a very cool housewares/furniture store in Soho, has opened a website, just in time for holiday shopping. Items are organized by room, and shipping is free!

Speaking of free shipping, I realize virtually every website is currently offering it, but I feel compelled to mention Net-a-Porter's deal, since, because it's a British site, shipping to the U.S. is $25-$35. So enter code SANTA at checkout now through Christmas.

Finally, a correction from a helpful reader: The Steve Madden 30% off friends and family discount is available today only. Once again, that code is FMFR1203.
