Living in a city that embraces summer quite as fully as we do here in Montreal, there is much to lament as we draw near its end. But, rain or shine, we're a stylish bunch without a doubt, and one of the welcome rituals brought along with the coming of a new season is the closet change-up.
The cooler temperatures offers the chance to showoff our newest and freshest gear to face the elements. So while we squeeze out every last second of fun in the sun, it won't be long before the air is a little crisper, the leaves start to change, and our minds turn to sweater ensembles and new layering trends.
Well, good thing your latest installment of seasonal retail therapy, courtesy of Montreal's very own Frank + Oak, is just around the corner.
StyleDemocracy, has been in the pop-up-shop game for quite some time now, bringing some of the biggest and best sales to Montreal, and its latest event is a massive Frank + Oak warehouse sale happening August 17 - August 21. For 5 straight days, treat your closet to the finest in fall and winter gear, all at insane prices of up to 70% off!
Best known for its modern take on functional and stylish classics, if you're a dude looking for a low maintenance and on-point wardrobe make-over: Frank & Oak has definitely got you covered.
Not to mention, F+O have just announced a brand-new Women's line launching fall 2016! There won't be any of the women's line available at the event (sadly), but that doesn't mean ladies won't find a little something for them too at the event!
Before you go, signup for their mailing list and take advantage of an extra 10% off your purchases on the first day of the sale. And if you can't make the first day, don't worry, there will be plenty more deals where that came from on the other days of the event.
Pro tip: It's worth visiting a few times, because there is new product brought out to shelves daily ;)
A spokesperson for Inner Circle told MTL Blog that all items at the sample sale are being sold at wholesale prices, so the discount is usually 40 to 60% less than the regular retail price you'd pay.
Katie DiCaprio (@mtlkatie on Instagram), a Montreal-based content creator, was at the sample sale. While sample sales do traditionally carry small sizes, DiCaprio said she was still able to find clothing that fit her well as a size large.
Shoppers should note that the sample sale is a cash-only and bring-your-own-bag event.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
Ca Lem's owner, Stephanie Le, told MTL Blog that clients just need to download the TikTok app and show their account to the cashier in order to receive free pancake cereal sundaes — which are, of course, topped with maple syrup.
"We encourage users to take video and pictures of their visit to Ca Lem and post on Instagram, Facebook & TikTok platforms," she said.
There are limited quantities each day but the offer is valid at two of Ca Lem's locations — in NDG and the Plateau — so you can double your chances of getting a free sundae.
