LuckyShops 2007
While I tend to oppose pay-to-shop events on principle (I'm looking at you, Billion Dollar Babes), there are always exceptions to the rule. If you're the type who summers in the Hamptons, for example, there's Super Saturday, which features legendary deals while managing to raise millions (yes, millions) for ovarian cancer research. I, on the other hand, live in a walkup in Brooklyn and, when on the South Fork, stay in a charming but slightly musty hotel in Monauk. Thankfully, for people like me (and you too!) there's LuckyShops, a charity shopping event sponsored by everyone's favorite shopping mag and featuring many of the coveted designers featured in its pages. You can score current- and past-season merch from labels like Chloe, Sigerson Morrison, Catherine Malandrino, and Marc Jacobs for up to 70% off (click here for a full list of vendors). Yes, there is an admission charge ($75 in advance and $85 at the door for the first day, $40/$45 for the second), but you get a gift bag stocked with $100 in products, so it's a win-win situation. More importantly, proceeds benefit Baby Buggy, a charity that provides clothing and gear for area kids. And, if you're going to shop anyway, you might as well do if for the kids. 10/26-10/27; noon-7 Fri., 10-7 Sat.; Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St. (6th & 7th Aves.). Click here to buy tickets.

I've actually attended Billion Dollar Babes before and it's gotten a lot better. I'll have to check out Lucky's event too. If it has clothes similar to that of the magazine, I'll be going broke soon.
