Happy Labor Day all!! I can't believe its September already- this year is going by entirely too fast. That said, September is an exciting time of year- football, clam bakes, fall- weather, fall fashions, and last, but certainly not least, Fashion's Night Out.
Last year, I was very disappointed that I didn't hear about ANY Cleveland retailers hosting FNO events, and it was certainly not for lack of looking. This year, I'm happy to report that there are a few retailers celebrating the event on Thursday September 8th, particularly on the East Side. Lilly Pulitzer at Legacy Village will be celebrating, as will BCBG, Eddie Bauer, and True Religion at Beachwood Place. Personally, I will be spending the evening at Saks Fifth Avenue at Beachwood.
This year, Saks has partnered with Stylelist, The Aids Taskforce of Greater Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic Innovations, and Positively Cleveland to bring FNO revelers the Burberry Fashion Show on big screen, a designer treasure hunt, live music, TONS of prizes, drinks, and of course, SHOPPING!! To attend the event, you must purchase a $50 ticket; however, you will receive a $50 Saks gift card in return. And if you've been to Saks, you know that its not hard to spend $50 there- at the high end, you could purchase some designer baubles, or even pick up a new fall fragrance! No matter what your budget, the skilled staff at Saks will be available to guide you as you make your purchases! You can either purchase your tickets in advance at this link, or purchase it at the door!!
If you're unable to make it to the FNO event at Saks, fear not. Our northeast Ohio retailers have launched their own ShopHop NEO from September 9th-16th. All you have to do is purchase your ShopHop pass for $25 here, plan your shopping trips using the store directory, and receive exclusive ShopHop discounts!! This event would be the perfect time to go explore the shops in Chagrin Falls and get some Jeni's icecream, or even make a downtown-Tremont visit, followed by dinner or drinks at any one of the fabulous establishments on either East 4th (downtown) or anywhere in Tremont!!
So Happy September Shopping all!! And I hope you've been inspired by the many September issues out now!
Disclosure: I am receiving a special media pass to attend the Saks Fifth Avenue Fashions Night Out event. That said, I would be attending the event media pass or not. I can't wait!!!
