The third annual Shop for Success two-day pop-up shop happens in NYC on Nov. 9 and 10. The event is hosted by Young Executives for Success (Y.E.S.!), the fundraising branch of Dress for Success Worldwide. The most fashionable young professionals have an opportunity to get a head start on their holiday shopping. Y.E.S! will also hold an exclusive VIP party on Nov. 9 with a raffle, silent auction and more.
All proceeds of Shop for Success benefit Dress for Success Worldwide. It is an opportunity to go holiday shopping in New York City and feel good about it. For three years, fashion-forward young adults have gotten a head start on holiday shopping at Shop for Success. The shopping experience is an intimate alternative to facing chaotic sample sale crowds. Shop for Success offers new designer merchandise from coveted brands such as Coach, Cynthia Rowley and Lulu Frost as well as Rebecca Taylor, Maggy London and others. Insiders have a chance to get a variety of contemporary fashion finds including outfits, accessories and shoes as they contribute to a wonderful cause.
Last year this event raised more than $60,000 for Dress for Success Worldwide. One hundred percent of the donations and sales proceeds go directly to benefit the career development and employment retention programs of Dress for Success Worldwide. Shopping is free to the public who can shop on Nov. 9 between 1 and 6 p.m. and Nov. 10 between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. On Saturday, Nov. 10, Y.E.S! will hold an exclusive VIP party from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Guest will have a chance to bid on items including a $2,500 Ralph Lauren handbag and a two-night stay at a suite at the Four Seasons LA. For a list of participating designers, visit the Y.E.S! New York Facebook page.
During the VIP party, guests will sip cocktails and wine courtesy of Skinnygirl Cocktails. Bethenny Frankel is expected to attend this fabulous event. Beer will be served courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery and sponsors include resource Natural Spring Water, Modern Luxury and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics as well as Peace of Cloth. During the VIP party there will be a raffle, silent auction and on-site DJ along with hors d'oeuvres.
