Today is Boutiques Give Back day in Old Town Alexandria. Mention the campaign to your cashier, choose which school or charity you want to benefit, and a percentage of your purchases will go to that charity. A list of participating boutiques can be found here, and stores are staying open late for the event. [Facebook]
