Affordable luxury? On Newbury Street? Yes, it’s now possible. Revolve Boutique — which bills itself as the largest locally owned consignment network in New England — has opened a Back Bay branch, and it’s holding a special sale to celebrate. Visit on Thursday, May 26, for a major luxury handbag event with Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Chloe, Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and more.
The sale starts at 11 a.m. and lasts until 7 p.m. Revolve specializes in more than just fancy bags, though. Shopping here is a prime way to clean out your closets and snag somewhat guilt-free deals on swanky clothing labels. Drop off your new or nearly new, top-label duds (no appointment necessary), then browse in-season styles from normally pricey brands like Tory Burch and DVF. The original Revolve opened in Belmont in 2009, and there are six branches in the Boston area. Happy hunting. Revolve, 262 Newbury St., Boston, 617-262-0720, www.revolveboutiques.com
