Luxetips Events! Recap of Fashion’s Night Out Atlanta
Life is hard, but always try to maintain an attitude of positivity and thankfulness.
Fashion’s Night Out in Atlanta was….just okay. I have to be honest, I did expect a little more planning, festivity, and excitement. I don’t know if people simply did not know about Fashion’s Night Out Atlanta or were not interested. Regardless we could have done much better. There were no hip parties in the stores, celebrity hosts or sightings, and discounts were minimal at best. It was eerily quiet at Phipps Plaza and Lenox Mall.
After visiting a few stores at Phipps Plaza that did nothing for a true Fashion’s Night Out experience, my friend Natasha G and I went to Saks to check out their event. Saks did not disappoint! They had several types of cocktails, nibbles, and offered guests a chance to dress in select Saks accesory merchandise to take professional red ( in this case beige) carpet photos! Nice!
Me being silly….1960s style.
They were also selling official FNO merchandise and they had a wonderful DJ in the shoe section. Cosmetics counters such as NARS and Chanel had great discounts and deals. Chanel had a nail bar set up and with the purchase of a Chanel nail polish, guests received FREE manicures. We were one of the firsts in line and by the time we were done, there was a long line of folks waiting for manicures. Now that is what I am talking about.

After hanging out at Saks for the majority of our time, we drove over to Lenox Square Mall to check out Neiman Marcus. Neiman Marcus also had a hip and happening partay going on! They had a great DJ, a candy bar, gourmet cookies, and a bar with champagne, wine, and Sweetwater beer. Sweetwater is an Atlanta brewing company and a staple in Atlanta. They also had some great discounts on merchandise, lots of FNO merchandise and a similar red carpet photo op as Saks.
Look at the lovely African-American mannequin at Neiman Marcus. Fabulous.
I hope Fashion’s Night Out Atlanta will be bigger and better next year. It was a decent time, but we should do better.
