However. The doors of the new Lettie Gooch location "officially" open Friday night at 1517 U St. N.W., with a third-birthday party for the designer shop. From 6-9 p.m., you'll find the prerequisite champagne and cupcakes (not that we'd EVER complain about champagne and cupcakes), DJ Quazare spinning, and plenty of new spring items. A fashion show kicks off at 7:30 p.m.
Can't make it Friday night? We know how hard it is to pass up a plan of kalamata-olive pizza and a stack of Netflix'ed "Lost" DVDs ... or maybe that's just us. Designer trunk shows will be happening Saturday and Sunday as well. Check out Analili's mod silhouettes and Mobama-esque patterns, and Fresh Ink Denim's infinity-plus-one brands of designer jeans.
