Lexus Nashville Fashion Week is finally upon us!! Runway shows start tomorrow and so do the sales, trunk shows and special events!! It truly is a celebration of fashion all week long with a shopping grand finale on Saturday that includes a citywide shopping day and the Nash Fash Dash presented by whats-in-store and Yelp.com at the Terrazzo in the Gulch. While there are shopping events all over the city on Saturday, you'll definitely want to start your day at the Nash Fash Dash taking place from 10am-2pm. Whats-in-store and Yelp.com have joined forces to bring the top independent area retailers together to present Spring/Summer 2011's best clothing, jewelry, shoes and other accessories all in one place. This will be one fun day full of mini-makeovers, the Yelp photo booth, great music and complimentary food and drink courtesy of DrinkHaus, Cha Chah and Provence. Participating retailers include whats-in-store, Muse Boutiques, Hemline, Lachique Boutique, Mekong Blue, Roya Boutique, Sleeveless, The French Shoppe, Jester's Art, UAL and Project Artisan.
You'll definitely want to be one of the first people at Terrazzo on Saturday as the first 300 shoppers will receive coupon-stuffed goody bags!
Not only is the schedule of runway shows exciting so is the schedule of special events! We're looking at over 125 of them across the city!
