Save the Date: Simply Summer...Fashionably Fall at Neiman Marcus

One of the reasons I am thrilled to have partnered with NorthPark Center for Fashion's Night Out is the high caliber and scope of events they will be bringing you.  From runway shows to gifts-with-purchase to designer appearances, NorthPark Center is going to be THE place to see and be seen. 

One of my stops will be to join co-chairs Leigh Bailey, Emily Eisenhauer and Kim Lewis-Gleason for Simply Summer…Fashionably Fall benefiting Turtle Creek Recovery Center. This year’s event will have a new twist as guests of Simply Summer…Fashionably Fall enjoy the ultimate the VIP experience at Neiman Marcus NorthPark’s Fashion’s Night Out on Thursday, September 6.

The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m in the NM Café located on the third floor of Neiman Marcus NorthPark with a cocktail reception exclusively for SSFF guest only.After mingling, sipping signature cocktails and noshing on passed hors d’oeuvres, stylish patrons will head downstairs for the “Art of Fashion Runway Show.”  All Simply Summer guests will have reserved seats as they are the first to see the season’s trends.

Posh patrons will then head back up to the NM Café for an exclusive FNO after-party complete with hip beats by DJ Jennifer Miller and DJ Paul Paredes, more cocktails and delicious food stations including:  an NM Café signature station with deviled eggs three ways - with lobster, caviar and classic, smoked salmon canapé and petite foccacia sandwiches; a Tex-Mex inspired station complete with summer corn cakes with avocado slaw and Mexican crema, pulled pork and jack cheese empanadas and bacon wrapped crab stuffed jalapenos; and the third station featuring artichoke poppers with parmesan and creamy spicy yogurt sauce, mini steak sandwiches and Cuban style pigs in a blanket. Additional activities will include henna tattoos, a fortune teller and photo booth and maybe one or two more surprises!

All guests will leave with a swag bag from Neiman Marcus NorthPark. Of course the reason for all of the fun is the beneficiary, Turtle Creek Recovery Center, who serves adults who suffer from mental illness and an addiction.  TCRC helps clients get their lives back on track with sobriety, a job and a place to live. Tickets for Simply Summer…Fashionably Fall are $150 per person or $250 per couple and can be purchased online by visiting www.tcmanor.org.
