One of my favorite summer staples are those weeknight twilight hours between 7 – 9 p.m. as local boutiques from Ballard to Capitol Hill fling open their doors and stay open late.
To celebrate the arrival of spring, the boutiques in West Seattle are doing just that with their Spring Fling event this Thursday. Open until 10 p.m., peruse darling favorites along California Avenue: Clementine (shoes!); Carmilia’s (Nanette Lepore!); Edie’s (more shoes!); Sweetie (sweet clothes! Jewelry!). Pick up a punch card at your first stop and have each shop give you a punch; then turn in it at West 5 for a free glass of sparkling wine to cap off your evening.
To sunny late shopping nights (worthy of wearing teal sandals) ahead!
