What’s new at Leigh’s this fall? We fell in love with the Italians! Armani Collezioni and Fabiana Filippi have made a home at Leigh’s alongside our other Italian design house favorites: Etro, RED Valentino, Agnona, Blumarine and Valentino Garavani handbags. To celebrate these stylish collections, we would like to invite you to our Fashion’s Night Out “Very Italian” Party on Thursday, September 6 from 6pm – 10pm. This glamour filled evening will celebrate Italian fashion, culture and, of course, the master, Giorgio Armani! So mark your calendars now.

We had a blast celebrating Fashion’s Night Out this past Friday night!! Thank you, thank you to everyone who joined us!! Also, a huge thank you to Adrian Butler for keeping us hoppin’ with great music, Yen Ching for all of the yummy food (I, personally, loved the spring rolls), Sweet Cakes for the darling cupcakes – creative, clever & yummy as always, Stacy & Rachel from Capelli Salon – our customers loved the hair styles you were giving them and Mandi from Laura Mercier – fabulous makeup! We loved seeing you, our customer and all of the new faces that stopped by to join the party. I hope you had as much fun as we did!
I want to make sure everyone has their calendar marked for Friday, September 10 from 6pm – 11pm. Why? Because you have a date….with Leigh’s and many other locally owned fashion stores here in Grand Rapids. We will all be throwing in store parties to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out. What is Fashion’s Night Out? FNO is an unprecedented global initiative created to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry’s economy, and put the fun back in shopping. For one night last September, in New York City and twelve other cities around the world, designers, celebrities, models, and fashion editors staged exciting, one-of-a-kind events in stores open after-hours to the public. Shoppers were able to see Sarah Jessica Parker singing standards with Oscar de la Renta, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen tending bar, as well as Michael Kors, Justin Timberlake, Kate Hudson, Rihanna and Gwen Stefani (just to name a few) at various stores throughout NYC supporting the industry. Retailers saw a surge of new shoppers and increased sales, while customers relished the street-party atmosphere. We are so excited for Grand Rapids to be a part of this initiative! Here in Grand Rapids we would like to bring an awareness to our community that your locally owned retailers are bringing great fashion to this area! For example, you will find name brands at Leigh’s that are typically only found in major cities…. so, shop with us and get the “feel good” of supporting your local economy, while getting great fashion to enhance your individual style!
