Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

The Bee's guide to events, activities, arts and entertainment

Another fashionable weekend

There are some interesting fashion-related events worth checking out this weekend - from downtown to Roseville.

For example:

* Artifacts boutique (907 K St.) is hosting a one-day event, "Lucid: An Evening of Fashion and Art," at 7 p.m. Saturday in the MARRS Building, 1050 20th St. It's open to the public and will showcase fashions from both Artifacts and DVI boutique, also in Sacramento. Local designers will also be featured, including Jesus Medrano and Lindsay Rickman and Amy and Melissa Hemmans. Artist Jeff Felker will display his artwork, too. Eliz Salon is doing the hair; music is provided by Sam I Jam and Adam J.

* The Galleria at Roseville is the setting for Sunday's "Serving Up Style" event to benefit the Keaton Raphael Memorial. It's being presented by the Sacramento Capitals World Tennis Team. Members of the Capitals (who will serve as models) will be dressed by the fashion experts at Macy's. The event is from 6 to 9 p.m. at Macy's. Cost is $35 per person at Macy's or call (916) 784-6786. You'll see the likes of tennis stars Sam Warburg and Elena Likhovtseva, along with hors d'oeuvres, hosted libations, music and silent and live auctions.KRM was founded by the family of Keaton Raphael after his death from neuroblastoma (cancer of the nervous system) in 1998. The non-profit organization works to help childhood cancer victims.

* It comes only once a year, but Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, which starts today, is a shopper's first look at what's coming for fall. Not only to see but to buy - at reduced prices. The sale covers everything from women's and men's apparel to kids' clothing, plus accessories (shoes, handbags, jewelry) and lots of great deals in the cosmetics and fragrance departments. Heck, I already found a great stylized trenchcoat that's marked down $60 for the sale. Prices are in effect today through Aug. 3 in stores or online. Just click here.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.

hide comments

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
