Fashion's Night Out, West Village Style

TWENTY 4 September. 24 retailers. 3 hours. 100$ (and hundreds hopefully) of shoppers. It must be the Lucky Magazine Boutique Crawl 2009!

Think of the boutique crawl as an accessible version of the massive Fashion’s Night Out nearly two weeks back. Tomorrow night, some economy-stimulating-minded West Village retail outlets, situated along Bleecker Street between Hudson Street and 7th Avenue, throw open their doors for spenders to “sip, socialize and score” good deals from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Satya is dangling as bait 20 percent off jewelry and free henna tattoos, plus tea and cookies. Free ice cream for just showing up from the Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream Truck! And the anecdote for ice-cream smudged lips may be a free lip color reading at Castor & Pollux, where snacks and 20 percent off its delicate and sexy undergarments are sure to produce smiles. Happy faces can stop by Cynthia Rowley for tress relief, courtesy of Antonio Prieto Salon staffers at the Sebastian hairstyling station and 10 percent off dresses and other outergarments. To sweeten the deal, sweets and cocktails.

Wardrobe. Check! Makeup. Check! Hair. Check! Handbag? Thought not. Visit M Z Wallace and Lulu Guinness for a 20 percent subsidy on handbags/wallets/accessories. Do wet your whistle with Champagne.

What’s that smell? Exactly. Away to Marc by Marc Jacobs and Bond No. 9. At MbyMJ, drop at least $250 on some stock and qualify for a free bottle of Splash Rain perfume. Get a MbyMJ visor for buying anything, no matter the price. Bond will shake 10 percent off any scent and will raffle off Bleecker Street Perfume and offer Magnolia cupcakes.

At last, you’re ready for your closeup. Hustle over to Olive and Bette’s or Juicy Couture for a Style Spotter photo set (click, snap, click, snap!), plus drinks and eats. At Juicy plop down Lucky Bucks, that is a $50 gift certificate from Lucky mag, toward something Juicy.

And … that’s a wrap (for your head, neck or waist)!
