Thank god for that, we thought that this month was going to end with us being evicted for not paying our rent. Happily our bosses have finally coughed up, which means we can irresponsibly spend it on all of this stuff:
This weekend Urban Outfitters' Spitalfields shop is turning into a two-day mini market with designer-makers setting up stall to peddle their wares. In typical U.O style you can expect vintage fashion, independent mags and Woolla's brilliant digi-knits, rather than whittled spoons. 132 Commercial St, E1 6AZ.
Ahead of the summer that honestly really is going to happen, London brand Lazy Oaf has plastered its perfect prints across the cutest cozzies. Launching on May 5, the collection starts at a very reasonable £25. 2 Ganton St, W1F 7QL.
The French have invaded and we're really happy about it. Perfect Parisian menswear label Ami has opened its first flagship store in London – inside you'll find clean lines, classic shapes tempered with interesting prints. Ooh la la. 75 Duke St, W1K 5PA.
Club Tropicana pop-up
And in other summery news, from May 5 until May 15 a totally tropical paradise is popping up in Soho. Like a contemporary curiosity shop, the stock – curated by print designer Lisa King and the team behind independent sunnies brand Zansan eyewear – will feature jewellery, swimwear, books and everything in between. Upper James St, W1D.
Herschel Supply sample sale
Canadian backpack brand Herschel is having a sale, and you're invited. There'll be discounts of up to 80 percent off its sensible but stylish sacks. Ground floor, 19-23 Kingsland Rd, E2 8AA. Sat May 1–May 6, noon-late. Closed bank holiday Monday.
