For the first time in its nearly 100-year his­tory, the rect­an­gu­lar Chanel No. 5 bot­tle (chanel.com) is get­ting a fes­tive red makeover. Be­gin­ning Nov. 5 at Chanel beauty coun­ters, this lim­ited edi­tion No.5 L’Eau Eau de Toi­lette and No.5 Eau de Par­fum is avail­able in mass-dyed red glass, as is a col­lec­tor’s edi­tion of 55 num­bered red Bac­carat crys­tal bot­tles of the No.5 Par­fum. The orig­i­nal bot­tle was de­signed by founder Coco Chanel, who con­sid­ered the colour red to be a re­flec­tion of strength and free­dom. Two beloved Toronto bou­tiques are cel­e­brat­ing mile­stones this sea­son. The Cash­mere Shop (the­cash­mereshop.com) in Yorkville is fet­ing its 25th with a lim­it­ededi­tion scarf fea­tur­ing a Scot­land-in­spired de­sign by lo­cal artist Thrush Holmes. Each of the 50 scarves pro­duced re­tails for $325, with $25 from each scarf sold go­ing to the Shoe­box Project, which col­lects and dis­trib­utes gifts to women af­fected by home­less­ness. Also in the city, wom­enswear bou­tique Meg (megshops.com) is cel­e­brat­ing its 20th an­niver­sary on Queen West. Founder Me­gan Kin­ney will be rere­leas­ing a small col­lec­tion of vin­tage styles, which were cho­sen by shop­pers via an on­line poll, to com­mem­o­rate the oc­ca­sion. Fash­ion­able deal hunters take note: Toronto Premium Out­lets in Hal­ton Hills, Ont., is ex­pand­ing. On Nov. 15, the re­tail space will un­veil 140,000 square feet of lux­ury brands in­clud­ing Gucci, Mont­blanc, Prada and Zadig et Voltaire, as well as new din­ing op­tions, and will of­fer ameni­ties such as mo­bile phone charg­ers. The new stores join ex­ist­ing ten­ants that in­clude Burberry, Hugo Boss and Saks Off Fifth and will bring the num­ber of out­lets to more than 130.

Pal­ette Ar­chives pro­vides pack­ages for those look­ing to de­sign an in­te­rior at an af­ford­able price. The web­site has more than 50 vari­a­tions of fin­ish and ma­te­ri­als pal­ettes that con­sider an en­tire in­te­rior space, in­clud­ing floor­ing, car­pet, cab­i­nets, wall and floor tile, back­splash, fire­place and fea­ture walls, paint and wall­pa­per. The pal­ettes span a wide va­ri­ety of tastes and styles, such as the black-and­white Parisian Grunge and the sooth­ing Big Sur. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit palet­tearchives.com.
