In celebration of Vancouver’s 125th Birthday, TEES.ca will be displaying a t-shirt exhibition and art show simply called “125”. Local artists were asked to create fresh, original designs to reflect and celebrate “Lotusland” as they see it. These aren’t your grandma’s tourist t-shirts! Poppy modern designs combined with subtle local references make these t-shirts unique but close to heart. The “125” Art Show will be at 227 Abbott Street in Gastown on Friday June 3rd from 6pm to 10pm.

The “Snooze You Lose” sale at Aritzia officially starts today, February 4, 2009. I checked out the downtown locations this morning, and saw silk skirts for $50, ribbed beaters for $10, slight discounts on the TNA hoodies, reductions on winter coats, but not much of a price reduction in terms of new stock. In fact, if you’ve been to Aritzia in the past week or so, items have already been put on sale and even though the official start (according to posters around downtown) is today, prices haven’t been noticeably cheaper than what they were in the past week.
