Our annual Spring shopping excursion was a great success – after all, when you’re saving money and enjoying sharing time with your colleagues, what more could you ask? Well, when you throw in champagne, snacks and saving money (did we say that already?), it’s even more special.
Chapter members and their guests met up at the Saks Off 5th outlet store in the Livermore Premium Outlets and were treated to welcoming snacks as they settled in to look at select Spring offerings. Event Chair and Emcee Carolyn Rovner kicked off the event, along with Saks representative Denah Shane. Carolyn modeled her favorite seasonal selection, followed by Adena DiTonno, Carrie LaShell and Wendy Schindler.
Denah Shane explained how the store receives and prices it’s merchandise, along with some changes that are taking place nationwide (looks like Lord and Taylor is merging with Saks, for an even greater selection of merchandise!) then Carolyn Rovner shared her favorite “outlet shopping tips” with the group. Everyone was eager to shop after the presentation to take advantage of special pricing the group was offered (including signing up for the special Saks outlet card – our clients will be glad to hear about this!) The group adjourned for a relaxing dinner and social hour at a nearby restaurant, making for a perfect ending to a great shopping experience. Thanks to Carolyn Rovner for putting this all together, and to the models and to all who attended and supported the event!
