The Shops at Wiregrass open Thursday!
The grand opening weekend will include some fun fashion and beauty events that seem worth checking out. Here's the skinny:
Thursday: Makeup artist and motivational speaker Laura Geller (who appears on QVC and contributes to lots of magazines) will give a speech at 10 a.m. to kick off Macy's Newest Star Makeover event. She will then be at the store starting at 11 a.m. to greet the public. Several makeup lines will also offer complimentary makeovers in Center Court from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. These are by appointment only, so call (813) 975-2200 to schedule a time.
Friday: Get a $10 JCPenney gift card if you are among the first 100 people to participate in a workout session featuring the store's athletic apparel. The sessions are at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. in Center Court.
Saturday: At 6 p.m., Emmy-award winning stylist Rebecca Weinberg, who dressed the actresses on Sex and the City, will host a Dillard's runway show featuring designer fashions for men and women. The show is open to the public. For a $20 donation to the American Cancer Society, you can also attend a VIP cocktail hour at The Brass Tap, watch the show from premier seating and receive a swag bag and $10 Dillard's gift certificate. Call the American Cancer Society at (813) 949-0291, ext. 114 to register.
