Uptown boutique Local Motion has found a way to lift the doldrums of January clearance shopping. Stop by every Friday this month from 4 to 6 p.m. for happy hour(s) and find secret sale items each week. Racks are packed with fall and winter markdowns, and spring fashion is already arriving.
And if it's Friday, then you can shop for bargain fashion accessories at Fun Sisters in Minneapolis. That's right, any Friday. One of the original "occasional" stores is changing its format and will now be open every weekend, Friday-Sunday. A storewide sale is on all month. Get 25 to 50 percent off everything.
