Hanky Panky Donates to Behind the Book; Rent the Runway Adds New Clearance Items

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

ONLINE SHOPPING—From February 1st through the 7th, 5% of all Hanky Panky sales will benefit Behind the Book, a organization devoted to building the literacy skills of NYC school children. Yes: that means every lace thong, garter belt, bra, and babydoll that you buy is for a good cause, other than just being a Valentine's Day gift to yourself. [Racked Inbox]

ONLINE SHOPPING—Rent the Runway's semi-annual clearance sale started a few days ago, and we just heard that they've added a lot more inventory. According to their email, "hundreds of new dresses" in sizes 0-12+ have hit the site. [Racked Inbox]
