Everyone knows February is full of sweet treats…but you’ll never guess the treats we have planned for you at our February 24th event! Join us for an evening of spring fashion tips from Project Runway’s Valerie Mayen, owner of Yellowcake, and Kim Criado, Personal Stylist Manager at Nordstrom.
Have you ever walked into a department store and wished there was someone to hand you the perfect pair of jeans to fit both your body and your pocket book? Or to let you know what not to wear? The use of a stylist may seem extravagant…or is it? Nordstrom is known for their customer service—this new service takes that to a completely new level. This is an affordable, easy option! Not only will you see first-hand this new approach to reaching new customers and creating lasting ones, you’ll also get a chance to take advantage of some Nordstrom perks such as a free tricky hem on denim purchase, gifts with purchase, and shopping time with experts to guide you through the latest spring trends.
Kim will also be consulting with WISE Board Members, Jenn Wiklund and Diana Greenberg, prior to the event and we will see their transformation on the runway!
Catering by Maggiano’s provided compliments of Nordstrom.
