Shopping Treats & Tidbits

Merrell Sample Sale, Bridge & Burn Pop-Up Shop & IDOM’S Holiday Party.

By Eden Dawn December 14, 2010


I admit to having only purchased two Christmas presents this far and am starting to get a little panicky. When did this get so hard? I keep hoping David Hasselhoff will endorse some kind of eau de toilette which I would just box up for every single person. Until that beautiful day, I am going to get back out there and start working on the list. Here are some of the fancy options I/we have to get on shopping track this week.

Bridge & Burn Pop Up Shop

If you happen to look in your current issue of Portland Monthly magazine you’ll notice a little one page feature on the must-haves for the stylish Portlander featuring the Collins jacket by local company Bridge & Burn. They are quickly becoming one of my favorite go-to’s for men’s pieces (it doesn’t hurt the male model is ridiculously handsome), but they also have some really great women’s wear. While they are usually online only for 3 magical days you can go to their pop up shop and pick up pieces in person. A word of advice to Bridge & Burn: Put that male model in the window for 3 days, it will bring in the customers. Well, a good chunk anyway.

Merrell Sample Sale

Outerwear giant Merrell is having a two day sample sale hawking select items for those on your list that love all things cold and snowy. Remember this is a sale of their samples so it’s pretty size specific: Women -medium tops/jackets, size 8 bottoms, Men -large tops/jackets, size 34 bottoms. But if you happen to have family that size take advantage of this deal, nothing will be over $50

IDOM’s Holiday Party

Idom dresses for all!

If you’ve read the blog before then you know I am a cheerleader for IDOM. It’s a good feeling as a fashion editor to walk into a store and know I will never be bored, and that is what I get from IDOM. This Thursday the store will be having a fun little holiday party where you can see the new winter collection pieces they just unpacked and stay to have some drinks and snacks (plus see sale items!). If you have to venture out into the mad world of Christmas shopping shouldn’t you be able to party too?
