March Madness at Uber-Ritzy Mario's


Despite WW's strong desire to aid the proletariat as the economy takes a nosedive into a dirty toilet, alienating rich people probably isn't the best idea either. In an effort to reconnect with affluent Portlanders, here's a deal exclusively for those clinging to or grasping at upper class status.

Mario's, the Northwest chain that sells Louboutin shoes, 7 For All Mankind jeans, and Oscar de la Renta dresses and other stuff we wish we could afford, is having a…sale? Or, at least a reason to spend over $200 in their store. And given the fact that a coin case costs at least $250, that minimum shouldn't be too hard to achieve. When you spend at least $200 between March 1 and March 10, you'll get 10-percent off your purchase and you are invited to a “Finale Party” on the 10th. At the party, everyone gets to spin a wheel for a chance to win free merchandise.

Don't have $200 to spend and have found no reason as of yet to set foot in Mario's? Well, I'll give you two awesomely altruistic reasons. The first is that Mario's is also selling special edition t-shirts, designed by Northwest artist Fay Jones, that cost $38 apiece. Additionally, they are selling raffle tickets that cost $10 each, or 3 tickets for $25, that allow you to win Mario's swag. Proceeds from the t-shirt and raffle ticket sales go to Children's Healing Art Project and Coyote Central, which both help kids flex their artistic talent in a positive setting. And if any city knows the healing and self-esteem boosting power of art, that city is definitely Portland.
