April in Lille, a monthlong anniversary celebration
Posted on March 27 2009
Can you believe it has been almost two years since Lille's grand opening? It's gone by so fast! As a way of saying thank you to all of our loyal patrons, we are honoring the two-year anniversary with "April in Lille," a full month of sales, events and parties. We will kick off the celebration with an opening reception for our First Friday art show on April 3rd from 6-9 pm showcasing select works by local favorites Sarah LaBarre, Ryan Jacob Smith, Emily Katz, Seth Neefus, The Christopher Twins and Carla McHattie. The festivities continue through the weekend (4/4-4/6) with a sample sale of high-end European lingerie on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The following weekend (4/11-4/13), Lille will be holding a Buy Two, Get One Half-Off Sale on all non-sale items in the store. The big event of the month will be the Two-Year Anniversary Party, to be held on Saturday, April 18th from 7-9 pm. Anyone who makes a purchase (over $50) between April 1st-18th will be entered into a drawing to be held that night (must be present to win, please RSVP) for a variety of free prizes, including gift certificates and merchandise from Lower East End businesses. And finally, to wrap up this glorious month of pantymonium, please join us at the Portland Mercury's 5th Annual Fashion Show, where Sarah Wizemann's new Gatsby collection will be unveiled alongside such venerable local designers as Adam Arnold, Elizabeth Dye, Kate Towers and Holly Stalder, to name a few. If you're not among the lucky Portland residents who can visit the shop in person, don't worry. We haven't forgotten about you. Each day in April, we will choose a different item in the store to be featured on the webstore for a 24 hour sale - once it's gone, it's gone, so check back often!
