A JLW Shops! Afternoon at Tory Burch on October 13, 2012

My New Member year was off to a great start.  After meeting, and loving, my advisor and small group, I was excited to get started with my Mini-Placement.  First task: attend and write a blog post about the JLW Shops! event at Tory Burch.

Okay, twist my arm why don’t you?


So one Saturday, after attending Course Session (I love JLW filled days!) I hopped in a Zip Car (also a JLW corporate sponsor!) and headed out to Tysons Galleria!  Having never been in a brick and mortar Tory Burch store, I was awestruck walking into the Tysons Galleria location.  It was what I wished my closet looked like - rich velvets, gold accents, and of course filled to the brim with beautiful shoes, bags, clothing, and gems!

There were two lovely gentlemen walking around with trays of mini-cupcakes and beverages, adding to the luxurious ambiance.  The staff was so helpful, attentively answering questions and fetching several pairs of shoes that I’ve had my eye on for some time now.  After indulging in a cupcake and trying on boots and flats galore, I finally settled on a pair.

The best part was, there was a 10% discount AND 10% of the proceeds went back to the Junior League of Washington!  There is nothing better than shopping for a cause.

It was a successful Saturday in my book.  Shopping and the supporting the JLW?  What could be better?  I’m looking forward to more JLW Shops! events in the future!
