The latest shopping intelligence from Sarca, French Market, Jayson Home and Lanvin
On Dec. 15, kick off the day with bubbles and baubles as Sarca (710 N. Wabash) hosts a Damen + Division holiday trunk show. Starting at 10 a.m., the local line will showcase its big, bold bracelets, necklaces and earrings, including the exclusive collection created especially for the Gold Coast boutique.
Shop the market
Though the Marché de Noël has been a French Christmas tradition for the past four centuries, it’s a new holiday hobby that Chicago is happily adopting. Taking place at the French Market (131 N. Clinton), the free event will showcase a variety of unique present possibilities, from jewelry to sophisticated gourmet snacks. Through Dec. 21. Learn more at Frenchmarketchicago.com/events.

It’s the season of hosting, making it the perfect time to turn your attention to a home revamp with the help of the annual Jayson Home Floor Model and More sale. Starting Dec. 21, scoop up furniture galore at up to 70 percent off. The sale lasts long after the relatives have left town, ending Jan. 21. Shop in the store at 1885 N. Clybourn or online at Jaysonhome.com.
Stylish Chicagoans are having a great month: Lanvin, the high-fashion French brand, opens the doors of its new Chicago boutique at 116 E. Oak — just a week after Louboutin set up shop down the block. The new Lanvin store will feature two floors of jaw-dropping fashion, including men’s and women’s clothing, shoes and accessories.
