In partnership with EILEEN FISHER, Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Desert hosted an EILEEN FISHER Tipster event and Trunk Show benefitting The Girlfriend Factor on the lawn at The Gardens of El Paseo
The Girlfriend Factor is a 501(c) (3) organization whose mission is to celebrate and explore the powerful influence women have on each other’s lives, through building friendships, sharing experiences and providing financial support in the form of educational grants to motivated women.
Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Desert invited top customer Donna Dunn, Donna Dunn Interior Design, and Palm Springs Life magazine Fashion Editor, Susan Stein to participate as Guest Tipsters. Donna and Susan also serve as advisory board members for the Girlfriend Factor
90 guests arrived to a seated brunch service including plated quiche, assorted fresh fruit, breakfast blend coffee and champagne mimosa. The program included EILEEN FISHER Tipsters Ali Brooks and Donna Dodd presenting 27 runway looks and 5 “tipster” picks commented on by guest tipsters Donna Dunn and Susan Stein.
Upon the conclusion of the show, guests participated in a raffle drawing. The winner was awarded a $500 EILEEN FISHER shopping spree and a Molton Brown gift basket.
EILEEN FISHER donated 5% of event sales to The Girlfriend Factor. Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Desert contributed $1,000 to the charity.
