LLOYD CENTER PERSONAL SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
Saturday, 4/26 1–3pm
Lloyd Center | 1st Level Nordstrom Court

Saturday, April 26, fashion takes over the Nordstrom Court at Lloyd Center. From 1 to 3 pm shoppers can get  personalized style tips from Project Runway winner Michelle Lesniak and yours truly. Beyond having a talented designer and fashion editor at your disposal, guests can visit with representatives from Macy's, Nordstrom, and Regis Salon for additional tips on style, hair and makeup.

While you're there, enter to win a $500 shopping spree for that day and have Eden Dawn (aka me) as your personal shopping buddy, helping you use that money to find the perfect summer wedding outfit, get new staples for work, figure out which pair of jeans makes your booty look the best—whatever you want. And we'll have fun doing it.
