I walked by the boutique after lunch at Tillman’s, and saw the giant red "store closing sale" banner hanging across the front. Everything in the store is 40 percent off, except for select items that are 20 percent off.

I was told Fête‘s last day is March 31, and when I asked why the store is closing, I was told that it’s partly the economy, and partly because owner Chad Vogel is working on a new project.
