Leftovers aren't always so appealing, but in the case of the OPM & Shortys Loft -- The Outlet -- we'll make an exception.

What wasn't snatched up the first time around in the respective stores (and a now closed boutique in Baltimore) has our fashion appetites reeling at this impromptu pop-up (and kind of hidden secret) outlet.

The sale haven is calling the names of the chic of all ages. Shorty's Loft provides a healthy base of uniquely elegant staples, while OPM spices up the fashion feast with on-trend brand-name pieces. So why not make it a mother-daughter bargain-hunting affair?

Daughters can pick up a flirty canary yellow Catherine Malandrino sundress (regularly $295, now $199), while Mom can pick up a crinkle-satin UBU jacket for half off. And you can both rejoice at $75 cashmere from White & Warren (regularly at least $150). There are also timelessly supple leather CC Skye messenger bags (regularly $750, now $299, 60 percent off) and frilly Sue Wong numbers for wedding-goers ('tis the season) of all ages (short black silk and crepe dress, was $298, half off at $149).

But as always, leftovers can't last forever. The last outlet dates scheduled right now are this weekend. There's hope for future helpings, though, possibly July 4th, and maybe even into August.

Satisfy your hunger while the offerings are still hot, because everyone can appreciate a good deal.

Shorty's Loft/OPM Outlet, Grand and Excelsior, in between Starbucks and the Shu Global Footwear outlet, Fri. and Sat., 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
