Brunch and Bargains at Betsy and Iya (and you can bring your kiddos)
September 24, 9 a.m.–1 p.m.
Two good reasons to get out of bed early on Saturday: deeply discounted jewelry and brunch goodness. Head over to Betsy and Iya to snag end-of-season specials plus up to 75 percent off slightly imperfect jewelry. (They assure us that the pieces are “not too imperfect to wear.”) Go for a guided tour of their design studios, enjoying catering from Dragonfly Café, and take advantage of an onsite babysitter so you can peruse uninterrupted. Select clothing, bags, and accessories will also be 30 percent off.
A Night Out for Charity at Taste of Style

Gawk at elaborately sculpted tresses while raising money for the Oregon Food Bank. Called a “fantasy hair event” the fundraiser brings together Portland’s hair, makeup, and fashion pros for an evening of runway strutting and over-the-top entertainment.
