    Is there any better way to soothe cabin fever (seriously, can it be spring already) than with a major shopping spree? Forget the mood stabilizers, something about stocking up on lust-worthy pieces just puts our minds at ease. And now, we've got the perfect way to cure your spending itch and do a little charity work. Jeffrey's annual Fashion Cares auction is back, with all kinds of baubles, bags, and so much more from some of the Big Apple's coolest designers. Bonus: Prices on the loot will start at only 25% of retail value, meaning — yes we did the math — you could score, say, a Brian Atwood bag for $460.

    Thanks to the generosity of this mainstay NYC boutique, at least 85% of the profits from every goodie sold will go straight to the city's needy organizations — think help for HIV care, student scholarships, and LGBT youth programs. The auction will go down on Tuesday, April 2, but we've got a sneak peek of the best items up for bidding — we know you'll want to call first dibs. Click through to check out all the luxe labels (Tom Ford! Phillip Lim!), and get ready to give back in a big way — while giving back to your wallet, too.

    When: Tuesday, April 2, from 7:30 to 11 p.m.
    Where: The Intrepid Pier 86, West 46th Street (at 12th Avenue); no phone.
