Many of your favorites here at Excelsior & Grand are at it again with their first joint happening of 2010 with the “Spring Fashion Opener”. The event was named to coincide with the Fishing Opener, which has historically been scheduled for Mother’s Day weekend but was changed a few weeks ago by the powers that be . Oh well — our show will go on and it’s going to be a great one– just in time for Mother’s Day shopping! The morning begins at 9:30 with mimosas from McCoy’s and pastries and coffee from Panera Bread, served in the Excelsior & Grand Club Room (located next to Panera). Get there early with friends and take in an informal fashion show with models highlighting this season’s must-have trends, including sundresses and skirts, sandals, denim, tops, handbags, jewelry and more from Max’s OPM, and Shorty’s Loft. Try out a new look for spring—Supercuts is offering free hair styling. And, the first 150 guests will receive a special gift bag (hint — there just might be a bit of chocolate in the bag)!
When you’re ready to venture out to the stores, please make sure to stop in for our Jayne Redman jewelry trunk show. Jayne’s inspiration is nature — the linear quality of stems and the fullness of flower buds (this is an image of her begonia earrings). She works with multiples of the same flat metal shape and fits them together until they become small floral sculptures. Jayne has received several awards and accolades and once you see her work that looks like beautiful pieces of origami, I think you’ll know why. In addition to the trunk show, you’ll be able to “pay it forward” with your Max’s rewards points — any points that you earn that day can be used that day (on the purchase of any item — it doesn’t have to be a trunk show item).
In addition to our trunk show, the other stores here at Excelsior & Grand have some wonderful events too — here’s the recap:
OPM: Two of the season’s hottest designer collections – dresses from Catherine Malandrino, and Rebecca Minkoff’s handbags and newly-launched clothing and accessory lines – are featured in trunk shows at OPM. Bring in clothing for Hope Chest and receive 20% off one regularly priced item for every piece donated.
Shorty’s Loft: Shorty’s Loft is offering customers 20% off full-price purchases all day long. Enjoy mimosas, fruit and pastries while you shop. And enter to win great Shorty’s prizes in drawings throughout the day (need not be present to win.) Supercuts: Get your locks ready for warm and sunny weather with Super Color from Supercuts! Receive six foil highlights for only $30 all day long. Plus, purchase two liters of Biolage or Matrix products and get a free purse (while supplies last).
Enjoy brunch until 2:00p.m. at McCoy’s (enjoy a complimentary mimosa or Bloody Mary by redeeming the coupon in your gift bag!).
When you’re finished with your shopping, you can enter to win a special Excelsior & Grand gift basket valued at $500! For each $50 you spend at participating shops and restaurants, you can enter a drawing to win a gift basket — just take your receipts back to the Excelsior & Grand Club Room (located next to Panera Bread) for validation and registration.
