Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out

Posted on September 9, 2009 in More Fun by | 1 comment

TOMORROW~ Thursday, September 10th: you won’t want to miss out on this one. Especially after you READ all about what’s in store from Janie below. Come join the party!!!

Hi all…

Leave it to VOGUE. I mean, seriously. S-E-R-I-O-U-S-L-Y. If you do not know every detail on FASHION’S NIGHT OUT please read on. This is a once-in-a-lifetime night for fashion and I don’t want you to miss it!!!!!

As you know I like to give a sneak peak into our world…how we do what we do. HOW ON EARTH are we lucky enough to be involved with Vogue on this amazing night? FASHION! Sooo, it was months and months ago. Can’t remember exactly, I am always hazy on details. I was in NYC doing something I am sure very important…and that evening I was meeting my very dear friend Sarah for dinner. Sarah is the queen bee of beauty at Vogue, meaning BEAUTY DIRECTOR. Insert into your thoughts here…she is MAJOR. She is funny, gorgeous, an amazingly talented writer, and a very old friend of mine. We met downtown at a yummy Mexican joint. Sideline…margaritas are one of life’s greatest joys. :)

So Sarah says to me, oh oh oh JANIE, you are going to have to get involved in this shopping night we have planned in September. I know she said SO MANY more fabulous things about it but this is what my brain took away…(remember before mentioned margaritas)


‘TIL REAL LATE!!!!!!!!!

So the gist is, Anna Wintour is a genius and recognized that fashion needed a shot in the pants. A little excitement! Something to rally around!!!! So for one night only, you get the designers. I mean, you really get the designers. If you are at Macy’s, there is Michael Kors. Bergdorf Goodman…Isaac Mizarahi. EVERYONE who is in NYC and has their own collection, big or small, will be celebrating fashion and shopping with you. When was the last time you had Carolina Herrera help you pick the perfect sheath? AHHHHHH.

It is ABOUT TIME we began to celebrate the following…

Silk cocktail tops that show all your important bits and GUARANTEE a second date…A dress that has a huge peacock printed on it – I mean WHO would do that?!?!?!
Irrationally embellished 5″ heels…earrings so big you could serve dessert on them.

From basic to extravagant, fashion is a passion. And we are going to celebrate it all night. SOOOOOOOOOOOOO, the most important question…WHAT ARE WE DOING AT LILLY PULITZER? Hold onto your hats. WHATEVER you have written in your datebook for tomorrow night…grab the white out.

In SHARPIE please write…

go to Lilly Pulitzer store and visit Janie!

This is what we have planned…PAINTING. With abandon. We are going to paint a wall or two (I am feeling like our Madison Avenue store needs a mural?)

We are going to paint the windows. Put our print right on the glass. And we are going to paint IN the windows. Set-up tables and paint right there so eeeveryone on Madison Avenue knows to stop in. And we are going to paint pictures for YOU. Spend $500 and you can sit down, design, and customize AAAAAAAAAAAAAAANYTHING.A Lilly Pulitzer print just for Y-O-U. Should we paint faces? I mean, cocktails WILL BE INVOLVED so who knows. Please envision this…

The print studio is MOVING to Mad Ave for the day. Music is good and loud. Cocktails in all shapes and sizes. Print designers helping you shop, painting the walls, painting anything we can get our hands on. THAT SOUNDS LIKE FUN!!!!!

Lilly Pulitzer is known for her parties and we are planning to really let it rip Thursday…we will start at 4pm-ish and pack-up at 11ish. You never know, you may find us there on Friday morning. Wink wink.

If you can’t be on Madison Avenue (boo hoo), look for other events on or tune back in Friday for the gossipy recap!
