Shop Talk: Elizabeth and James Support Women's March; Planet Blue Wants You to Relax
Your L.A. guide to shopping for the week ahead.
It'll be a whirlwind weekend ahead for the U.S. of A. (The inauguration! The Women's March! NFL Conference Championships!), and you can bet that L.A. is getting involved in each event, despite being thousands of miles away from the epicenter of all the madness.
Here, the local sales and events that will help you either participate in or retreat from the craziness.
Elizabeth and James Supports Women's March L.A.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's Elizabeth and James label is selling "Stronger Together" tees at their L.A. store at The Grove, just in time for the Women's March L.A., taking place downtown at Pershing Square on Saturday. The vintage-wash cotton tee ($95) is exclusive to The Grove store, and from now until Feb. 1, 20 percent of each sale will be donated to the nonprofit Baby2Baby, which provides low-income children with diapers, clothing and other basic necessities.
On its Instagram page, Elizabeth and James encouraged followers to join the conversation using the women's march hashtags — an out-of-character political move for a brand affiliated with the Olsens, who are notoriously private.

Planet Blue Invites You to Relax
This Saturday, wellness and beauty blogger/entrepreneur Shiva Rose and actress Olesya Rulin (the High School Musical trilogy) are joining author and master Kundalini teacher Guru Jagat at the Planet Blue store in Venice to celebrate the launch of her latest book, Invincible Living. From noon to 2 p.m., Guru Jagat — who is the youngest senior Kundalini Yoga teacher in the world and counts Alicia Keys as a student — will teach guests ancient techniques for improving mental clarity, reducing stress and elevating mood. In other words, your perfect post-inauguration relaxation.
And no spiritual experience would be complete without Moon Juice, tonic elixirs from Anima Mundi Herbals and Hint Water, which will be served during the practice. Guests are invited to peruse the latest spring 2017 collection after the event.

New Era Launches Design Lab Store at Staples Center
New Era, the official hat maker for the NFL, the NBA and pretty much every other sports acronym you can think of, has opened up shop at the Staples Center at L.A. Live. The brand's fourth stateside store will feature its massive headwear collection, as well as designer exclusives including player and artist collaborations and special event merchandise. The new outpost, open today, also boasts a customization station with a heat seal machine that can affix team logos and other patches, as well as a blocking machine, which can stretch a cap to fit a person's head more comfortably.
