    At Callalilai tonight, scoop up real savings on pretty party wear.

    The Callalilai boutique on Atlantic Ave. is New York's only showroom for the line's designs, from Japanese-via-Paris label Aoyama Itchome, whose soft, drapey clothes and flowery/botanical print have a sort of "Auntie Mame's kimono collection" vibe, and genuinely look different from anything else in high or low fashion these days.

    The stuff retails upwards of $200 for the most part, but at the boutique's Evening of Cheer event tonight, everything on the floor will be slashed to 40 percent off. Plus, you'll get a first look at some accessories by Barcelona-born Paz Sintes, who's swinging by to unveil her line of accessories made from recycled haute couture. 6PM-9PM, Callalilai, 296 Atlantic Ave. at Smith St.; (718) 875.1790.
