Spring Shopping Bonanza! Two Must-Hit Events This Month

Hemline is a participating retailer in the Shop With Heart Card.

A 10-DAY SHOPPING event benefiting the American Heart Association kicks off Friday and runs through Sun., May 1. The Shop With Heart Card, available for purchase for $50, entitles shoppers to receive 20 percent off regularly priced merchandise and services at a number of favorite local shops. Tonight, a launch party at Kuhl-Linscomb (6-8pm) features light bites, cocktails and door prizes.


Tootsies, Hemline, Elizabeth Anthony, and even restaurants like Tony’s and KP’s Kitchen are among the participating businesses; restaurants are offering a choice of a complimentary appetizer or dessert with the purchase of an entree. Since 1983, the Heart Guild of Houston has been dedicated to raising funds on behalf of the AHA, whose mission is saving people from heart diseases and stroke, America’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers.

Meanwhile, a curated home decor and gift market arrives in its new digs next week. DASH (which stands for design, art, style and home) promises a weekend of unique finds April 29-May 1, with a preview party on Thursday, April 28, from 6-9pm.

Admission to the DASH preview is $35 and includes specialty Tito’s cocktails, beer, wine, live music and light bites by Island Grill. Shoppers will also have access to entry all weekend. Regular tickets are $10 and include complimentary parking, food and music; they can be purchased online. The spring market benefits Citizens for the Animals of Midland Odessa (CAMO) and Memorial Assistance Ministries (MAM).

Happy shopping!

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career.

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
