Ten percent of the day’s purchases — including what’s in Jennie Lang’s and Dulcy Freeman’s bags — went toward College Preparatory School in East Palo Alto, which supports underrepresented students pursuing higher education.

Womenswear veteran Chandan Allen unveiled her latest venture, a boutique called Mélange, at the Stanford Shopping Center with a buzz-worthy grand opening. Highlights included a fashion show, Champagne and live music. The luxe retailer carries a medley of timeless and contemporary pieces designed by Allen, each “with the Silicon Valley woman in mind — who juggles between home, family, work, friends and looks forward to her happy hour.”

The stylish proprietor welcomes customers like Cynthia Mahood Levin.
