You'll want to line up early for the Co-op Spring Clearance sale
(noon to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, Northrup King Building, 1500 Jackson St NE, #406, Mpls). There will be deals on one-offs, samples and fall and holiday merchandise from local designers and boutiques, including Post-, Irely Intimates, Julie Swenson Beauty, Foat, Annie Fink, Black Betty, Corset Boutique and more. Seriously, priced to sell -- 60% off Smart & Chic makeup, $10 Irely panties and these duffles are $88.50 each (originally $295).
Get your fashion fix at Houndstooth tonight (5 to 9 p.m., 582 Prairie Center Dr, Eden Prairie). A trend specialist will offer a preview from Clover Canyon, Aaron Ashe, AG Jeans, Sundry and Continental Diamonds. There will be a 20 percent off discount along with appetizers and giveaways.
Get on trend
Speaking of that sample sale -- it's part of our spring trend preview
. We're counting the days until the Wow Bar
Don't tease us, but we're pretty into the MN Zoo's Farm Babies
(Saturday through April 30, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., 13000 Zoo Blvd, Apple Valley, 952-431-9200). Enjoy the wee ones, but keep reminding yourself that chicks, piglets and goat kids grow up and might not make the best pets.
Put your wits to the test at Wits
(Friday, 8 p.m., Fitzgerald Theater, 10 E Exchange St, St. Paul)! The latest installment in the Minnesota Public Radio series will feature Tim Meadows, who most people remember from SNL, but we loved him best as Mr. "my carpal tunnel came back" Duvall in "Mean Girls."
