The excitement is palpable in our offices and around our stores: the Glitter Gala is tonight!
I'll be tweeting from Robert Leonard Salon & Day Spa later this afternoon as our models have their hair and make-up done. The staff at Robert Leonard has volunteered to turn more than 50 models into a whole host of musical entertainers--from jazz crooners to rock and rollers and everything in between.
Then I'll head over to the Sheraton Seattle Hotel to watch as this glamorous evening comes together. The event begins with a champagne reception and passed hors d'oeuvres, a raffle and a silent auction. Then we'll move on to a sit-down dinner and "The Sounds of Style," a runway romp through the intertwining worlds of fashion and music featuring Glitter Sale clothing and merchandise. Radio personalities Jackie and Bender of 106.1 KISS FM will be our Masters of Ceremonies, and Sir Mix-a-Lot is the evening's special guest.
If you can't attend tonight's Gala, follow me online--I'll be tweeting at #glittergala. And if you miss tonight's incredible fashion show, remember, you can still purchase the designs from the runway at next week's Glitter Sale, Sat. & Sun., Nov. 13 & 14. Don't miss it!
