If you are anything like me then you’re probably waiting until the last possible moment to make your September 6th Fashion’s Night Out (#FNO) plans. Even if you are waiting until the last minute to wade through the hundreds of options available, it is always a good idea to have some idea of what’s happening, so even at the last minute you can be strategic. With this in mind I’ll post items here as I get them — stay tuned!
French inspired decadent cocktails and delicious ice cream flavors inspired by the finest Provençal ingredients? Why, yes please! Shop the L’Occitane flagship boutique in New York’s Flatiron District and be treated to custom cocktails created by trendy Chelsea speakeasy Bathtub Gin. The drinks will be infused with luxurious Provençal ingredients, such as lavender, orange blossom and jasmine, designed to transport the crème de la crème of New York City’s fashion elite to Provence, the birthplace of L’Occitane.
Outside of the L’Occitane flagship boutique, the legendary Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream Truck will further enhance shoppers’ sensorial experience, offering complimentary ice cream scoops of flavors that evoke the iconic lavender fields and fruit trees of the south of France. Throughout the night, consumers will be pampered with hand massages and receive exclusive special offers on L’Occitane’s lush products. Customers will also receive a complimentary L’Occitane Maptote filled with L’Occitane favorites like Bonne Mere Soaps, Almond Shower Gel and Verbena Cooling Hand Cream Gel with any $65 purchase.
