Alexandria's Bellacara throws their annual holiday party tonight, offering cocktails, treats, and 15% off everything in the store, with a free gift with purchase. Be there from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. to take advantage of the holiday party perks. In case you're thinking, "15% off, big whoop," Alexandria Stylebook tackles why an across-the-board discount is a rarity in the beauty industry.
And in the District, tonight find a holiday in-store shopping event at the Dupont Circle outpost of Bluemercury, the national beauty chain that got its start in Washington. From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. tonight and take 10% off purchases over $100, 15% off purchases over $175, and 20% off purchases over $250. Exclusions include spa services and gift cards. This same deal is happening tomorrow at the Connecticut Avenue location.
