At Von Haus upstairs, we can't quite believe that it's happening.
Apparently Job Warehouse, the most [insert adjective] of all fabric stores, appears to be closing TODAY. Apparently there is champagne, and dozens of young women serving frantic customers. Apparently no reasonable offer will be refused. We will have to dash out later for a look because I, for one, won't believe it until I really see it.
Drop by the area to verify this spectacle for yourself... And, of course, pop up the stairs to see us. Our Alexi Freeman display continues today and tomorrow (between 12 and 6) and again next weekend, before closing at 6pm on the Saturday, FOREVER.
Alexi + Tessa have done it again... collaborating across Melbourne tabletops to produce a collection of awesome + terrific + affordable + tempting jewellery pieces. These four styles were designed to tie in with Alexi Freeman's garment collection for S/S 12/13 ... but we were lucky enough to receive the goods in time for last week's launch. Hooray for local makers and designers - these were ordered, produced and delivered in a matter of days.
There are still a few of each style left (today they're all at Von Haus but, as of tomorrow, they will be available at both Milly Carlton and City). We think they are very nicely priced already but, given that we are on sale at both locations, we are happy to take 15% off the RRP of the Alexi + Tessa collection - if you can remember to mention this post (or if you're a Milly Sleeping subscriber, or a Facebook or Twitter follower, or if you have good taste enough to choose them).
To make sure you don't miss out, feel free to email email@example.com and we can set something aside - part of the fun is describing each style - I see a paw, Alexi sees a chicken, and you?

And when we say (almost) all, we really do mean very nearly everything is reduced! Pictures to follow...
Not that we didn't have enough stunning Alexi Freeman work to launch our city space with today, we are still very excited that our Jenny Kee scarves have arrived in time - beautiful varied designs on silk crepe de chine.
Join us today from 3 - 5pm at Milly sleeping in the maid's room with S!X and Sarah Scout, above Von Haus, 1A Crossley Street, Melbourne.

In conjunction with our current display of Alexi Freeman garments and costumes, Milly Sleeping is hosting a special preview showing of a selection of pieces from AF's upcoming collection for S/S 12/13.
Yes, we are aware that it's a little bit chilly outside and Summer clothes may be far from mind (unless they come complete with tropical getaway) ... BUT, the relationship between the costumes and this new collection was too striking to ignore. We are all swooning... It is a rare opportunity for Milly Sleeping and visitors to view samples ahead of their arrival in store, and potentially place a personal order - with RRPs reduced by 15% off for the occasion. A deposit will be required to secure all order/s.
When? Where? ...
This Friday and Saturday only, June 15/16, from 12pm to 6pm.
Milly sleeping in the maid's room, upstairs at Von Haus, 1A Crossley Street, Melbourne.
Don't forget, this is also an opportunity to view the costumes, as well as garments from Alexi Freeman's current A/W collection... AND, on the Saturday between 3pm and 5pm, it will be time for a drink with S!X and Sarah Scout, as we official launch/open/celebrate all of the many everythings that are happening during this busy time at Von Haus.
