LA's department stores are clearly having a major makeover moment. Nordstrom got a shiny new abode at Americana at Brand, and Glendale Galleria will soon boast a Bloomindale's and a bevy of other boutiques. Naturally, Macy's is also in on the facelift game (its DTLA digs are up for a major overhaul) and this weekend, the Thanksgiving-loving chain is unveiling its newly renovated 130,000-square-foot Beverly Center space with the help of a few fashionable friends.
This Saturday from 11am to 8pm, toast the three-story Macy's new look with designer (and recent LA transplant!) Rachel Roy, jetsetting juice friend/Peace Love Shea blogger Shea Marie and beauty vlogger sister act Blair and Elle Fowler. As if scoring pro style and beauty advice wasn't enough, there'll be plenty of deals, delish bites, giveaways and more at the grand reopening bash.
Head to level two from 2pm to 4pm to get some real-life face time with the Fowler sisters, who'll be signing their new book, "Where Beauty Lies" (free with a $50 purchase). Then from 4pm to 6pm, shoppers can enjoy expert autumn dressing tips when Roy and Marie team up for a fall fashion presentation featuring the designer's latest line. Plus, guests will get a chance to win a piece of the designer's RACHEL Rachel Roy fall collection and a one-on-one styling sesh with both Roy and the twice-Coveteur'd style star.
Need a mid-shopping-spree retouch? Go to the ground floor from 11am to 5pm for free mini manis when you spend $15 at the store's Nailit! Nail Bar, then head up to the second floor from 2pm to 6pm, when boho-chic brand Free People's touching up tresses at their free hair chalking table.
All the while, partygoers will be treated to tunes, refreshments, drinks (sorry, the non-alcoholic kind), gifts with purchases and more throughout all three levels during the event.
