Got plans this Thursday evening? Well, now ya do. This Thursday, September 6th, marks an historic event for Canada. Fashion's Night Out, a global celebration of all things fashion-related, is coming North of the border. For the first. time. ever! 

And you can bet that Plum is going to be a part of it. We're a local company that is passionate about personal style. Naturally, we were thrilled to learn that Vancouver would be a host city of this fashion phenomenon, which originated in NYC.

We will be hosting a shop night on September 6th at three of our locations (North Vancouver, South Granville, and Kitsilano). You can enjoy longer hours - we'll be open until 10pm - and a gift with purchase over $75. At our South Granville location, you'll have a chance to meet our designer, Claudia Agusti, at 6pm. Meanwhile, I'll be working at our Kits location, and I'd love for you to come say hi! 

One of the goals of this night out is to get people excited about shopping locally. Plum manufactures about half of our merchandise right here in Vancouver. This means that from design to production to shipping, we're able to monitor the quality of our garments. Expect quality and shop locally.

Plum is proud of our locally designed, locally manufactured clothing. Watch the process, step-by-step, here.

Shopping the Sales

  Well friends, it's that time of year again. Believe it or not, retailers need to start making room for fall merchandise pretty soon (excusemesummerhasn'tevenhappenedyet), so now is a great time to shop the sales and put together a summer wardrobe on the economical. While sales are indisputably awesome, they can be a bit overwhelming and tiring if you go in without a game plan. So here are some simple tips on making the most out of the sale season.

Image

1) Take stock of your wardrobe before you go. Where are your gaps? Most stores have a 'final sale' policy on sale items. If you get home only to realize that you bought a repeat of something you already have, you're likely to be stuck with the double.

2) If you happen to be on the smaller or the larger side of the size spectrum, this is your time to shine. Get out there and get shopping. Median sizes tend to get snapped up right away, leaving smaller and bigger sizes to be discounted when it comes sale time.

3) When you find a great deal on an investment piece (a blazer or a great dress, for example)- or even just something that you really liked but the sizing is a bit off - go for it. Having some minor alterations done will be worth it in the long run, and you'll wind up with a piece that not only was on sale, but was custom tailored for you!

4) If you want an entire outfit at a great price, don't be shy about asking the sales associates for advice on how to pair items. Trust me, they (we!) see the clothes worn in every combination imaginable and will be happy to pass along the unique product knowledge to you. 

5) Quality over quantity. If you're at a sale trying to decide between two or three tops that you have lukewarm feelings about and one blazer that you love, always go for the love. In this case, less really is more.

Don't forget to visit our fabulous sidewalk sale this Thursday through Sunday (June 21-24) and put my handy tips to good use! And I'm not saying you'd want to hang out with me, but just in case you do, I'll be at our Kitsilano location Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

And now I'd like to know, do you usually wait for sales to go shopping? Are you a sale veteran/rookie? Leave a comment here or tweet me @PlumClothing

Weekly trip to Plum is my therapy

Every week I have to go to Plum to see what's new.  I don't know of any other store that stocks new items on such a regular basis.  I'm so afraid if I don't go, I'll miss something that I just have to have in my wardrobe.  And barely a week goes by when I don't leave the store with a new item.  My last purchase?  A great long outdoor sweater in a fabulous neutral that I know I'll wear all fall.  Of course I had to just pick up a few pieces of jewellery too - why not?  It's all so right on trend and affordable.   ... read the full post and reader comments
