Although the Dallas weather can't decide which season it is, we're definitely in spring on the shopping scene. Transition out of winter at an open-air market or a pop-up shop featuring chic, capsule-collection designs. And if all else fails, buy a snazzy hat.
Local Artisan Market at Highland Park Village
Kicking off its seventh season on March 23, this market features a collection of exceptional handcrafted food and goods and allows patrons to experience live music and entertainment while supporting neighboring small businesses. The 2019 vendors include but are not limited to Folklore Las Niñas, LemonGlaze, ModernSoul, Savvy Sleepers, Texas Olive Ranch, The Jelly Queens and more. It takes place from 9 am-1 pm.
Mad Hatter's Shopping Events
Spring's most over-the-top fundraiser, Mad Hatter's Tea, will have a "Golden Age of Hollywood" theme this year. Get ahead of the April 11 event with two special shopping opportunities. New York hat designer-to-the-stars Steven Kokin will be on hand to talk hat couture and more at L. Bartlett, 6823 Snider Plaza, from 10 am-6 pm March 8; and at Sharla's in McKinney, 109 East Virginia Street (in Historic Downtown McKinney) from 10 am-5 pm March 9.

The Dallas-based custom boot brand has joined forces with eco-friendly, philanthropic denim maker Rialto Jean Project to create a limited-edition boot in support of the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Dubbed “The Splattered with Love Shorty,” the boot retails for $1,000, and all proceeds benefit the children's hospital. The boots can be purchased online and at the Dallas boutique in Highland Park Village.
Now through March 31, swing by a special pop-up event to shop items from the Spring and Ath-Suitable collections, including pieces from the brand's knitwear capsule. The pop-up is also offering complimentary in-person styling sessions, where one of the stylists puts together a look from the collection that works best for each customer. The pop-up shop is located at the Novel Coworking Building at 701 Commerce Street, on the 4th floor.
Lovers of luxury men's and women's apparel, shoes, outerwear, and accessories will surely want to take note of the brand's move within Northpark Center. As of March 8, shoppers will be able to find the store in its new location on level one between Neiman Marcus and Dillard's. This is the only Salvatore Ferragamo boutique in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Sephora West Village
The favorite one-stop-shop for beauty and skincare is finally set to open in West Village in the former Gap space. The signage is officially up, and a grand opening date has been set for March 22. Look for more information on the grand opening to come soon.
The Plaza at Preston Center has a new boutique that is self described as a "young and fun" place to shop if you are not a child or teen but not quite ready to shop the women's department at traditional stores. The shop carries everything from trendy to traditional looks and from casual to dressy designs. There is even swimwear.
