••• Indian Pink‘s first non-pop-up store has opened at 1307 State Street (Sola/Victoria). It’s a celebration of color, with the signature pillows and a whole lot more—pajamas and other clothing, fabrics, curated furniture and antiques….
••• I guess the Lobster Town USA gallery on Santa Claus Lane was a pop-up, because it has announced a 25% off closing sale just three months after opening. UPDATE 3/9: T. reminds me that we always knew it was temporary, because the space is becoming a cannabis shop.
••• 219 E. Haley Street is back in front of the city’s Architectural Board of Review on March 7: “This project received Project Design Approval from ABR in January 2020. The project has been revised to a larger building of 28,070 square feet (vs. 26,835 square feet) with an average unit size of 762 square feet (vs. 725 square feet) and the building is proposed to be 48 feet tall vs. 45 feet tall. Project also added private rooftop decks and access to townhouse units, fenestrations and floor plans.” What I find interesting about the project—“a four-story, 34-unit, mixed-use development […] with two commercial spaces”—is the way some of the buildings are set at an angle.

••• Corinne Bailey Rae, famous among crossword constructors (because (“Rae” is a very useful word for crosses), plays the Lobero Theatre on July 13.
••• Truth & Love beauty shop has opened in Paseo Nuevo. Its website touts its wares as “Plastic Free Cruelty Free Organic Eco Friendly,” and the marquee product is shampoo in bar form.
