There are 4 things I truly love in life: my family/friends, fashion, food & wine, and animals. Thursday night, these things will come together when I attend Primp’s “Unleashed” spring trunk show benefiting Wags & Whiskers Animal Rescue. At this second annual event on March 8, Primp will be releasing new spring styles all day at both their St. Louis Park and St. Paul locations. Between 5 and 9 pm shoppers can enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and beverages while perusing the latest fashions (just don’t spill!).
While we can all appreciate free nibbles and sips, what truly makes this event worthwhile (other than the fashion – never forget about the fashion) is the fact that 10% of the day’s sales will be donated to Wags & Whiskers. An MN-based non-profit organization, this no-kill rescue is run by volunteers and has no physical shelter. Instead, animals awaiting adoption are placed in foster homes and their bios are available online. Additionally, “Doggie Bags” filled with coupons and discounts donated by a number of local businesses including CRAVE, Toby Keith’s, and Flirt will be for sale at $10 each with all proceeds going to Wags & Whiskers.
Look at that face! How can you NOT want to buy a doggie bag with that looking at you?
Long story short, whatever plans you may have had for Thursday night, cancel them. Come out to Primp, have a drink, do some shopping, and support a great cause. And if you see me, say hi!
