California native Melissa Joy Manning unveils the first NYC shop for her eponymous jewelry label. In 2009, Manning was certified green by her home state, and this 1,000-square-foot boutique reflects that environmental consciousness, with the designer’s sustainable, handmade men’s and women’s baubles ($25–$15,000), accessories ($50–$1,500), and sculptures ($250–$5,000) displayed on reclaimed cabinets and tables. Look for elegant opal-and-diamond rings ($2,560), oversize sterling-silver hoop earrings ($65) and 14-karat gold limited-edition labradorite necklaces ($1,125). The store also carries a selection of eco-friendly gifts ($3–$1,500) from other labels, such as Patch NYC and Soap & Paper Factory Stag votive candles ($19) and Stone Works vintage bone-and-steel knives ($150). Mention TONY for 10 percent off all purchases through February 28. 12 Wooster St between Canal and Grand Sts (212-219-2195, melissajoymanning.com). Tue–Sat 11am–7pm, Sun noon–6pm.
The Mark Project
Delicate Raymond jewelry designer Michelle Zimmerman rebrands her line’s eponymous shop as a women’s boutique with the help of stylist Mark Howell. The store still carries Zimmerman’s timeless baubles ($30–$369) and affordable vintage costume pieces ($5), but adds New York designer Walter Baker’s edgy womenswear ($88–$268). Threads from other local labels will show up periodically, but for now our top picks include Baker’s on-trend destroyed boyfriend jeans ($189) and sleek leather-edged blazers ($248). Mention TONY for 20 percent off all purchases through February 15. 73A Orchard St between Broome and Grand Sts (Delicateraymond.com). Daily noon–7pm.
Business-savvy mom Hiyam McKelvey and celebrity makeup artist Julio Sandino opened this cosmetics studio to provide customized professional makeup applications ($50) that won’t break the bank. All sessions feature Pucker’s exclusive makeup line, including more than 70 shades of lipstick and glosses ($17 each) that are available for purchase and named after the duo’s all-time favorite NYC nightlife spots, including the Limelight, Webster Hall and Twilo. Ladies can prep for a night out with Pucker’s on-site shower, two private dressing rooms, lockers for stowing clothing and vanity stocked with essential toiletries. Sandino and his staff also offer one-on-one classes ($75) and can be hired for on-location makeup sessions ($125 per hour, minimum two hours). Best of all, 2 percent of all proceeds are donated to the Global Fund for Women (globalfundforwomen.org), a nonprofit that disperses grants to advance women’s rights worldwide, and the Grace Institute (graceinstitute.org), which provides job training and placement to low-income and unemployed ladies in New York. 129 Grand St between Broadway and Crosby St (212-334-3690, pucker.co), Mon–Fri 8am–8pm, Sat 8am–9pm, Sun 10am–6pm.
