Alexandra's Storewide Sale
Alexandra's is a downtown women's consignment boutique, so that means it's lightly used clothing for much cheaper than it's original cost. For this sale, an extra 25 percent is being taken off the already discounted price. Some may call this a "win win."

Ken Downing at Neiman Marcus
Senior vice president and fashion director for the Dallas-based luxury department store will be in Bellevue to present current fashion trends. Hopefully Downing will discuss why you should keep that bro tank in the closet even if the sun is out.

University District Street Fair
Established in 1970 with the purpose of healing a community, this fair is now coming up on its 47th year in commission. If there's something that's been difficult to find, chances are it can be found here among the many local vendors showcasing their wares. 

May 19–20
Peter Cohen Trunk Show
Mario's—the downtown fine-clothing store for men and women—is hosting Peter Cohen to help show-off his classically-modern fall collection. If it's still too early to be thinking about fall (as summer has barely arrived), Cohen will be available to offer advice and a helping hand.
