Shop sandylew Today to Support SAL!

Up for a SAL shopping spree? Now you can support SAL and have fun getting dressed by joining us at sandylew today, Thursday, September 7, from 6-8 PM—enjoy light bites, bubbles, and fashionable clothes and accessories to jazz up your fall wardrobe. Exclusive items and looks will be unveiled, and Sandy will generously donate 25% of the evening’s sales to support SAL’s ongoing work!

In anticipation of this evening’s festivities, Sandy has also given Sonder readers a book recommendation to end their summer reading on a romantic note—Paris: A Love Story by Kati Marton. This New York Times bestselling memoir is for anyone who has ever fallen in love with Paris, detailing the NPR and ABC news correspondent’s path down widowhood in the City of Lights following the death of her husband, diplomatic prodigy Richard Holbrooke.

“When I read and was moved by this lovely memoir,” Sandy told us, “I had not an inkling it would resonate with me and remind me to be sturdy all these years later.”


This is what Sandy had to say about how she’s felt this expansive memoir’s presence in her life:

I am saving this book to re-read it at summer’s end. I am saving it the way some people save dessert for last. I am saving it because it will make my heart ache and know that I am in the company of many women who understand loss. I am saving it because I know it will remind me to keep loving on my new path.

Kati loves Paris. Kati feels joy in Paris. And I love my work. I feel joy in my little shop.

Thank you for your beautiful words, Sandy! We hope to see SAL friends tonight at Sandy’s First Avenue boutique.
