The Back Room Hand & Foot Spa at Carol's Daughter

SHOP + BEAUTIFY

Carol's Daughter
At the Harlem flagship of native Brooklynite Lisa Price's natural-beauty empire, a spa-boutique double-whammy gives customers the chance to experience the skin care, hair care and bath goods that have made devoted fans out of Oprah, Mary J. Blige and Jada Pinkett Smith. The pale wood shelves of the Zen-like retail section display the full range of Carol's Daughter products, including the ultra-moisturizing, curl-defining Hair Milk line ($9--$19). Concoctions like the Almond Cookie Shea Souffl ($13) and Jamaican Punch sea salt scrub ($28) smell yummy enough to eat, but it's the hand and foot potions, like the Peppermint Foot Lotion ($12) and Lemon Ginger Mint Manicure in a Jar ($14), that have us jonesing for a mani-pedi. That's where the Back Room Hand and Foot Spa comes in: With tasseled curtains, antique flourishes and plush armchairs replacing the standard nail station, the secluded area at the back of the store feels like a glam living room. Choose from a list of indulgent treatments, such as the Chai Massala pedicure ($36), which includes a soak in an insanely fragrant mix of chai spices, or the Haute Chocolate manicure ($22), complete with a creamy chocolate-and- brown-sugar soak and a cup of hot cocoa to boot. TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 20 percent off all purchases and "Goddess Ritual" services through October 28. 24 W 125th St between Fifth and Lenox Aves (212-828-6757, carolsdaughter.com)

Georgia Product & Salon
Owners Kiara Ellozy and Jodie Patterson offer hand-selected beauty products and by-appointment hair stylists at their Nolita fusion shop-salon, which boasts a hip-but-homey vibe, thanks to their wall-spanning inspiration board. The front half of the airy, art-decked space is stocked with a range of lesser-known bath and body goods, including all-natural products from New York's Dolly & Mila Wildcrafted Skincare ($18--$68) and Georgia by G and Company, the store's own collection of sumptuous, essential-oil-packed lotions and soaps ($8--$34). You'll also find lively accessories such as Purple Pill Babies tribal fabric-wrapped glasses ($45--$58) and Huit Lingerie lace briefs ($45). Wander toward the back for goof-proof pencil-applicator makeup from new brand Color by Cynde Watson ($15--$30), or opt for one of Georgia's pros to do it for you (makeup application starts at $150). The skilled stylists also man the full-service, two-seat salon, and pride themselves on being able to work with any hair type. To wit, there's a wide range of services, from unisex haircuts ($100--$200) and color ($110) to dreadlocks ($140). After having your mane coiffed, be sure to check out the shelves of hair products from high-performing favorites like Barex ($22--$70), Davines ($21--$46) and Oyin Handmade ($11--$15), whose all-natural line is a must for girls with curls. TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 10 percent off all Georgia by G & Company products through December 31. 89A E Houston St between Bowery and Elizabeth St (646-827-2428, georgiany.com)

Valley/Portia and Manny
Fashionistas and beauty fiends flock to this vintage store--salon combo for one-of-a-kind duds and artistic manicures in a quaint, kitschy-cool setting. On the Portia & Manny side of the space, browse the well-curated racks of mostly '60s and '70s fashions, where we recently spotted a Missoni-esque striped sweater vest ($154), perfectly scuffed leather oxfords and boots ($150--$275) and vintage gold stud earrings ($15). Continue your transformation with a service from Valley's extensive nail, skin and wax menu. The nail technicians are known for funky, creative nail art (starts at $3 per nail) and also give a mean mani ($22). While Valley also offers a full range of waxing services ($15--$175) in the tucked-away back treatment rooms, we'd opt for a signature facial ($130--$300) with skin-care specialist Emma Graves, who created the holistic, organic product line Between You and the Moon ($22--$128) especially for Valley customers. TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 10 percent off all Portia & Manny merchandise and Between You and the Moon holistic skin-care products and 20 percent off all Valley services for first-time customers through October 20. 198 Elizabeth St at Prince St (212-219-6400, portiaandmanny.com)

SHOP + CAFFEINATE

Black Gold Records
A coffee, records and antiques shop might not be the most obvious hyphenated retail venture, but that's exactly what owners Sommer Santoro and Jeff Ogiba have established at this quirky Carroll Gardens spot. At the antique wood bar, New Jersey's Rook coffee is ground and brewed to order ($3), and jars are stocked with organic cookies from the Lower East Side's Sarivole bakery ($2) and SCRATCHbread's custom-made shortbread and butter-cream Black Gold bars ($2). You could park yourself by the front window and people-watch, but Black Gold's bins of post-1960 45s and LPs ($3--$200) beg to be flipped through. On a recent visit, the constantly evolving collection of mostly rock, soul and jazz featured albums like the Beatles' "Let It Be" ($15) and Depeche Mode's "Music for the Masses" ($7). And then there's the edgy, gothic-style antique art and ephemera throughout: While we could do without the taxidermy collection ($100--$400), the antique antlers ($100), framed crucifix prints ($80) and eerie black-and-white photo portraits ($70--$100) strike the perfect old-school chord. 461 Court St between Luquer St and 4th Pl, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn (347-227-8227, blackgoldbrooklyn.com)

Saturdays Surf NYC
With its scuffed wood floors and berchill vibe, thanks to reggae on the sound system, this surf shop feels oceans away from the hustle and bustle of Soho. Thankfully, you don't have to spring for an actual surfboard ($600--$800) to hang ten. Simply grab an eye-opener from the no-frills coffee bar up front, which sells La Colombe espresso-based drinks ($2--$5). Head back through the long, narrow space to peruse the collection of casual California-cool staples for guys. We dig Saturdays' terry-lined nautical striped hoodies ($135), The Stronghold dark-rinse jeans ($245--$290) and preppy Spring Court tennis sneakers in a rainbow of colors ($75). Even the small accessories section encourages a sort of beach-bum sensibility, with RAEN Optics sunglasses ($99--$145) and Baxter of California men's skin care and shaving products ($8--$22). While Saturdays also stocks basic surfer accoutrements like Sex Wax ($2) for your board and watersport-friendly Vertra sunscreen ($25--$33), the spacious backyard, where a laid-back crowd soaks up the sun on wooden benches, is the urban equivalent of catching the perfect wave. TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 10 percent off Saturdays' in-house line of merchandise through October 20. 31 Crosby St between Broome and Grand Sts (212-966-7875, saturdaysnyc.com)

Sustainable NYC
A mecca for eco-conscious consumers, this cheery East Village storefront hosts an earth-friendly general store (find cleaning products, beauty items, jewelry and gifts) and an organic caf, Ciao for Now, all between its reclaimed lumber walls. On the store side, shelves are stocked with everyday goods ranging from biodegradable trash bags ($8) to solar-powered radios ($28), but the selection of accessories and beauty products is the strongest. You'll find recognizable brands such as Pangea Organic beauty products ($8--$40) alongside lesser-known lines like Priti, whose range of nontoxic nail polishes ($13) and soy nail polish remover ($11) shouldn't be missed. We also love Zig Zag's fair-trade tie-dye scarves ($23) and recycled plastic bangles ($3--$6) from Burkina Faso for their on-trend appeal. There's no shortage of gifts for the tree-hugger in your life, such as Two's Company recycled-tin letter wall hooks ($15) and Pacifica soy candles ($16). The devotion to all things green continues at the in-store Ciao for Now Cafe, which emphasizes local and organic ingredients in all of its made-fresh-daily baked goods (75--$4) and uses quadruple-filtered water for its full range of coffee drinks ($2--$5). Enjoy an egg wrap with vegetarian sausage ($4) at a table in the sunny nook, where free Wi-Fi is available. TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 10 percent off all store purchases through October 31. 139 Ave A between 8th and 9th Sts (212-254-5400, sustainable-nyc.com)

SHOP + EAT + DETOX

Martier
We could easily spend a day at this Sutton Place triple threat, which features a high-end boutique, full-service spa and caf over two expansive floors. The fun starts downstairs at the ritzy, just-opened spa, which offers basic manicures and pedicures ($25--$40) amped up by Chanel and Christian Dior polish, medical-grade facial peels ($175--$225), laser hair removal ($95--$695) and private slate-tiled showers to rinse off in after your Swedish massage ($135). Though you can have the Continental bistro fare served at the upstairs eatery delivered to you in the elegant spa lounge, we prefer to fuel up on our spinach salads with figs and feta ($12) and sesame ginger chicken wraps ($14) in the long dining room with plush leather benches. Decadent desserts like the Oreo cheesecake ($6) might be tempting, but you'll want to steer clear if you intend to fit into the sexy looks sold in the super-sleek adjacent women's boutique. Nearly all of the contemporary designer pieces are big-night-out-appropriate, like Olive Olivia embellished silk tops ($160), J.J. Winters crocodile leather clutches ($168) and Givanno studded platform pumps ($170), and you can't go wrong with the solid collection of LBDs from labels like Issue ($350) and Faith Connexion ($200). Top off your new look with costume jewelry displayed on shelves in the back, where you'll discover statement pieces such as killer green onyx cocktail rings ($127). TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 25 percent off all spa services, 10 percent off all retail products in the spa and boutique, and 10 percent off any entree in the cafe through November 14. 1010-1014 Second Ave between 53rd and 54th Sts (212-758-5370, martierusa.com)

SHOP + CREATE

Make Meaning
This brand-new, tri-level "creativity destination" offers aspiring Martha Stewarts a chance to get crafty—or take home a little store-bought goodie, should their crafting endeavors go awry. A $12 fee gains you access to the large state-of-the-art craft studio, where walk-ins can choose from six guaranteed-easy activities, including ceramics, jewelry and paper design, and candle-, glass- and soap-making (prices range from $5 for make-your-own cards to $125 for DIY glass trays). Hit up the first-floor retail area for an array of whimsical, giftworthy jewelry, accessories and housewares. Fun finds like Butch and Harold peel-and-stick frames (eight for $25) and Grain color-your-own-shower-curtain kits ($40) encourage you to get artistic at home, while mini masterpieces such as Not Neutral decorative metal lanterns ($60--$75) and Tina Frey's gorgeous resin bubble rings ($130) prove some things should be left to the pros. TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 15 percent off retail purchases worth $25 or more through November 3. 329 Columbus Ave between 75th and 76th Sts (212-362-0350, makemeaning.com)

Treehouse Brooklyn
If you aren't already in touch with your inner Etsy goddess, one visit to this small but sweet Williamsburg boutique-cum-studio should have you craving craft classes with owner Siri Wilson. Featuring clothing, accessories and tchotchkes of the new, vintage and hand-reworked variety, the funky little shop is a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind finds. Among the few racks of threads, standouts include hand-bleached cotton separates ($34--$35) from Wilson's own Sirius line, local label IM Handmade's embellished tank tops ($34--$35) and a vintage Southwestern shawl-collared cardigan ($32). But it's the artsy accessories displayed throughout the quirky room—like Cheek-ie spaghetti necklaces in rasta cotton ($64) and stunning Sirius Lux hand-crocheted metal jewelry ($40--$165)—that have us scrambling to sign up for the small, two-hour craft classes offered in the back studio. On the schedule this fall: Intro to Knitting and Junk-to-Jewels jewelry-making ($40 each). 430 Graham Ave at Frost St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-482-8733, treehousebrooklyn.com)

SHOP + DRINK

The Dressing Room
It's hard not to love a spot that combines our two favorite pastimes—drinking and shopping—and that's exactly what this Lower East Side bar-boutique does. On the street level of the two-floor emporium (which stays open late to encourage boozing and browsing), you'll find a co-op boutique for emerging local designers. Among the brief but varied collection of men's and women's clothing, highlights include Alissa Chapman corset dresses ($245), Out of Print graphic tees ($28), and uniquely gorgeous Heather Benjamin agate rings ($175--$285). The top floor is where you'll also find the charming dark oak bar, where a hip, young crowd orders bottled Brooklyn Lager ($5), wine by the glass ($8--$9) and specialty cocktails ($10--$12) such as the gin-and-OJ drink Sundress ($12), and takes in classic movies projected on the back wall of the bar's cozy, pillow-laden nook. If you'd rather drop dough on designer duds than your bar tab, check out the basement level clothing exchange, which features a maze of secondhand and vintage pieces at seriously good prices. We recently uncovered an on-trend tie-front silk blouse ($16), recent-season Calypso shift dress ($22) and just-like-new Marc by Marc Jacobs striped tunic ($32). TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 10 percent off all purchases (excludes drinks) and a free gift with any purchase over $100 through Oct 27. 75A Orchard St between Broome and Grand Sts (212-966-7330, thedressingroomnyc.com)

J.D.Fisk
For the debut of his new men's footwear line (a spin-off of the popular women's brand Dolce Vita), designer Joel Rich has opened this cozy man cave stocked with everything guys need—including booze. While the shop's main draw is shoes—the collection ranges from classic styles like neutral suede lace-ups ($198) to punkier options, such as calf-high zip-up boots ($289)—the small courtesy bar, offering Brooklyn Brewery beers and highballs of Bulleit bourbon, offers shoppers ample reason to linger in the intimate, wood-paneled space. But you don't need a buzz to appreciate J.D.Fisk's small-but-solid collection of clothing from a handful of up-and-coming menswear lines. Look for smart basics, including Norse Projects rugged sweaters and jackets ($140--$400), Penny Stocks classic chambray shirts ($38--$62) and Shades of Grey wear-everywhere casual trousers ($92--$121). 159 Ludlow St between Rivington and Stanton Sts (212-475-0565, jdfisk.com)

SHOP + EAT

202 at Chelsea Market
With clothes, home decor and a charming restaurant all within British designer Nicole Farhi's Chelsea Market outpost, there are multiple ways to get a taste of the posh life. Farhi's luxe, beautifully constructed men's and women's separates are displayed throughout the rustic-chic space, offering classics like tweed wool coats ($625) and chic striped knit turtlenecks ($185) for gals, plus sharp staples such as dress shirts ($229) and cord trousers ($380) for guys. There's also a small jewelry case that includes statement pieces like multidrop resin necklaces ($170). While the stunning French country antiques may be a tad out of our price range (we spotted a 19th-century mirror for a whopping $22,000), Farhi's home line offers more affordable decorating pieces like sleek, mocha-colored ceramic tableware ($20--$275) and irresistible Maison de Vacanes ostrich-and-linen pillows ($280). Of course, you could always just grab a seat in one of the mismatched antique chairs in the dining area and tuck into a full English breakfast of poached eggs and roasted tomatoes ($13); lentil, beet and artichoke salad ($14); or classic fish and chips ($22). Chelsea Market, 75 Ninth Ave at W 16th St (646-638-0115, nicolefarhi.com)

Swarovski Crystallized
Thanks to stellar designer collaborations and a new restaurant from chef Kurt Gutenbrunner (the man behind hot spots Wallse and Blaue Gans), this Soho concept store has much more to offer than the standard bling for which the famed Austrian company is known. While an impressive "library of light" displays precision-cut loose crystal beads in every imaginable shape and color ($7--$105), the clear stars of this super sleek, all-white space are the unique creations from nearly 50 international designers, including Jean Paul Gaultier, Jason Wu and Lulu Guinness. Arranged throughout the store in glossy display cases, the bigger-name pieces—such as Catherine Malandrino's bold evil-eye cuffs ($970)—tend to fetch big bucks, but there are also plenty of cool, affordable baubles. Keep an eye out for star earrings from Ben-Amun ($70), Tom Shot gold pendant necklaces ($100) and glamorous cocktail rings by Phillippe Ferrandis ($140). For a continued dose of chic, skip the store's customizable charm-making stations ($13--$84) and head straight to Caf Kristall's loungey dining room in the back of the store. Come Novemeber, you'll be able to peck at light, contemporary Austrian fare, which you can wash down with vegan martinis from the full bar. TONY DEAL Mention TONY for 15 percent off designer collection items through November 15. 499 Broadway between Broome and Spring Sts (212-966-3322, swarovski-crystallized.com)
