Fashion show, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day(s) Scandinavian shoes and more
There’s so much going on in town this weekend that my short list of bits has grown into a substantial bite— a virtual mouthful. Shoppers can find everything from new baby gear to bridal gowns to shoe specials. First up though, a fashion show on a restaurant runway:
The fashion show, which benefits Thanks USA in support of our troops, offers a preview of Lilly Pulitzer’s summer line (not yet in stores).
The day includes brunch prepared by Chef Francesco Ricchi, appropriately pink summer rosé wines and discounts on clothing purchased after the show.

We’ll keep you posted as more fashion and food events develop at Chef Ricchi’s “multisensory” Co2 Lounge. See a video promoting the show here.
