Yay it’s a Giveaway! Kentucky Derby Festival Fashion Show

Mar 20, 2012

Winner Winner! Congrats to Jacqueline & K. Michelle for each winning two tickets to this Thursday’s event! Looking forward to meeting them (and hopefully some of you!) there!

Today is the first day of spring (woo hoo!) and around here that means one thing – Derby. I heard on TV this morning that there are 46 days until the big event which means 45 shopping days (44 if you’re going to Oaks).

To help you master the perfect Derby ensemble, I’m excited to say that two lucky ladies (or gentlemen) will win two tickets to a very fun Derby event. The Kentucky Derby Festival has generously given me two sets of tickets to giveaway to their annual Fashion Show (more on that below).

The Kentucky Derby Festival Fashion Show will take place at Horseshoe Casino in Southern Indiana on March 29th and will feature clothes from some of my favorite local boutiques like Clodhoppers, Dress and Dwell (New Albany) and Rodeo Drive. They’ll also be featuring handbags from Diva’s.  And for the topper (sorry for the lame pun), they have Dillard’s as the Official Hat Sponsor. I’m pretty excited to see what they’re planning.

I tried to get a little sneak peek for the blog but they’re keeping everything under wraps, but if you’re trying to get an idea of what will be coming down the runway, check out the boutiques Facebook pages (Clodhoppers here, Dress and Dwell here, Rodeo Drive here and Diva’s here).

Here’s all the event details…

March 29, 2012 – Cocktails begin at 5:30 pm, Dinner is at 7:00 pm and the show begins at 8:00 pm.

Tickets are $35, $59 and $69 (see below for details) and can be purchased here or at any American Founders Bank location in Louisville.

    My favorite thing about spring in walking/ lounging in Cherokee Park with friends. There’s nothing better than reading a good book on Dog Hill. Can’t wait for the Derby Festival Fashion Show!
