THE TO-DOUX LIST is lifestyle editor Abby Ledoux’s weekly roundup of pop-ups, markets, and whatever else she feels like doing around Houston each Friday–Sunday (generally). To submit an event for consideration, email details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When: Saturday, October 5 (10:30–11:30 a.m.) and Sunday, October 6 (10:30–11:30 a.m.)
Where: Axelrad, 1517 Alabama St.
What: Bring your own mat, towel, and water for this $5, hour-long community yoga class (held inside, upstairs) with local instructor Gabby Meyer, then reward yourself with a drink—all in one place. May we suggest the "Impeachmint?"
When: Saturday, October 5; 11 a.m.–5 p.m.
Where: Lemon Laine, 714 Yale St. Suite 1K
What: Reset for the season with mini makeovers from sustainable beauty brand Kjaer Weis and shop Houston-based brand MIRTH's new fall collection featuring '70s-inspired prairie dresses, peasant blouses, floral prints, and hand-loomed fabrics. Plus, permanent bracelets welded in-person by KB Design, natural wines from Heights Grocer, and charcuterie bites by Graze.
Kendra Scott Gives Back
When: Saturday, October 5; 1–3 p.m.
Where: Participating Kendra Scott stores (Rice Village, CityCentre, First Colony Mall, Market Street, and Baybrook Mall)
What: If you needed another excuse to add to your Kendra collection, look no further: In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the famously charitable Texan will donate a portion of all proceeds from purchases made at participating stores during this time to The Rose, a Houston-based non-profit that helps all women access quality breast health care. It's the perfect opportunity to snag a piece from Scott's just-released Breast Cancer Awareness Collection, which includes limited-edition designs in blush dichroic glass plus butterfly charms, available year-round, supporting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
