Lucky Shops 2010

Confession: I have never been to Lucky Shops. For some reason, year after year, I am always out of town the weekend it happens. This only multiplies its mystique for me, however; I envision Lucky Shops as a fun shopping party with the hippest labels and amazing prices, and in my daydream, Lucky editors like Jean Godfrey-June and Anne Keane are there helping me pick out lipstick and jeans, respectively. Well, at least the first part is true--some of my favorite designers will be for sale (Bing Bang, Vena Cava, Pour La Victoire, among many others) with prices up to 70% off retail. There will be cocktails, mini-makeovers, giveaways, and other enticing extras--after all, it's not just shopping, it's a shopping event. Such awesomeness does not come free, however: You'll need a ticket to enter Lucky Shops, and you have several options. The most fabulous is the $185 opening-night VIP party celebrating Lucky's 10-year anniversary; Lucky will donate 50% of the ticket price to charity, and in addition to first dibs on the merch, you also get a VIP gift bag worth $500 (so, really, it's like your ticket is free. Okay, maybe not quite, but close). If you just want to shop, you can go for the $40 or $35 Friday tickets, $30 Saturday tickets (less selection, but prices will get chopped), or a $60 two-day shopping pass. All the details can be found here. Now, normally I don't advocate paying money to shop, but this is Lucky we're talking about, so you know the sale is going to have stuff so good, you're going to want to add "-y" to nouns just to describe it (you know, as Lucky often does). Tickets are on sale now--you have exactly a month to get yours!
