If you just can’t resist giving a token of your affection in a wrapped package, you can shop local at a few upcoming in-store events. During Sophie Blake’s Rosé Sunday in the Mosaic District (Feb. 11), you’ll find lovely baubles for 15% off (we’ve got our eye on this elegant 14K gold “Charlotte” pendant). Meanwhile, Covet, our go-to shop for cheeky gifts, irreverent greeting cards and stylish accessories, is donating 10% of sales from Feb. 7-14 to the renaming efforts for Justice High School (formerly J.E.B. Stuart) in Falls Church to pay for new signage and sports uniforms. And artist Sabrina Cabada reopens her Market Commons pop-up with a Valentine’s Day reception, joining forces with two local designers: interior designer Nicole Lanteri and textile and wallpaper designer Mira Jean Designs.
