The week in shopping
Due to the approaching holiday weekend, it's slim pickings this week (well, and because the week is nearly half over). But fear not, summer sales should start up next week.

Sale of the week: Starting today, my favorite store in the whole, wide world, Barneys New York is taking 30%-50% off spring merchandise for men, women, kids, and the home.

Hey, it's almost Memorial Day, and if you haven't bought a new bikini yet, check out the J Rosen Showroom, where you can find swimsuits from Vix, Lisa Curran, and Bella Brazil for $35-$85 (formerly $125-$175), plus cover-ups, jewelry, and Havianas flip-flops for a complete beach look. Cash only. Through 5/27; 8-7; 250 W. 39th St. (7th & 8th Aves.), suite 510.

If your look is more rock'n'roll than Hamptons, try the Buddhist Punk, Religion, Rolling Stones, and Ringspun sale, where you can find tees, pants, and accessories for men and women for $10-$80 (originally up to $400). Cash only. Through 5/28; 10-7; 230 W. 39th St. (7th & 8th Aves.), 12th fl.
