The Marketplace Committee partners with area retailers to host exclusive shopping events and ongoing partnerships throughout the year, often with a sales discount to JLW shoppers and a percentage of total event sales donated back to the League.
Along with individual shopping events, JLW Shops! is proud to host two marquee events during the spring of 2017: the Bloomingdale’s Spring Fashion Show and the Georgetown Shop Around. Both events featured generous discounts exclusive to League members.
Bloomingdale’s Spring Fashion Show
Thursday, April 6, 2017
On Thursday, April 6, JLW Shops! celebrated a night of fashion and fun at our annual Spring Into Fashion event at Bloomingdale’s in Friendship Heights (5300 Western Ave., Chevy Chase, MD 20815)! Easily one of our most anticipated nights of the year, the event featured a Fashion Presentation with looks styled by some of DC’s most prominent bloggers, JLW models representing our various community partners, champagne, hors d’oeuvres, and Bobbi Brown gift bags to the first 100 attendees. Shoppers enjoyed 25% savings store-wide (with exclusions). Additionally, 10% of all sales from the evening were donated back to the League.
Georgetown Shop Around
Saturday, May 13, 2017
On Saturday, May 13, the JLW Shops! hosted a one-day retail extravaganza, the Georgetown Shop Around! This premier shopping event brought together Georgetown retailers for a full-day shopping experience with exclusive in-store discounts and perks for shoppers. Additionally, the League received a portion of all retail sales to support its community philanthropic mission.
The day started at JLW Headquarters where shoppers received a Passport to Savings and a shopper wristband. While there, shoppers browsed pop-up retailers Kendra Scott and Sail to Sable, enjoyed snacks on the patio, and browsed Junior League merchandise before heading out to visit participating retailers:
Ann Mashburn (Ann herself will be offering styling tips in the store!)
Fuel Body Lab (special $15 JLW barre class from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.)
Kendra Scott (HQ Pop-Up)
Rent the Runway
Sail to Sable (HQ Pop-Up)
The more stores visited, the greater the rewards! Shoppers visiting more than 50% of the participating retailers, receiving a passport stamp at each store, and turning passports in at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown After Party by 4:30 p.m., entered shoppers into the Georgetown Shop Around drawing (Note: Purchases were not required to obtain a stamp). A Hayes Street Isobel purse from Kate Spade, $500 gift card to Brooks Brothers, personal styling session at Tuckernuck, Kendra Scott Color Bar Party…all were available to win!
The Georgetown Shop Around cost $5 to attend for non-League members.
