First reporting:

Bits of Lace Fine Lingerie is proud to present the premier fashion occasion of the season with their bi-annual 'Lingerie Fashion Show'.

The event will be hosted by Southend Brewery & Smokehouse on December 9th with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 6:30 p.m., and the Fashion Show set to begin at 8 p.m.

Katie Penta, fashion show organizer and sales manager for Bits of Lace, has been hard at work gathering talent and outfitting for the show. The models will be wearing fine lingerie and sleepwear from Bits of Lace, accessorized by chic hairstyles from Salon Couture, unique makeup design by EQmakeup, Bob Ellis bedecking the girls’ feet in chic footwear and Croghan’s jewelry accenting each high-fashion look. Katie tells us that “the models are beautiful, the lingerie is high-end and the space is gorgeous. This show will have the feel of an exclusive event, with the opportunity for the public to get involved.”

In addition to the VIP clientele, Bits of Lace is opening up ticket sales to the general public this year. Only 100 Fashion Show tickets will be available for purchase at Bits of Lace Fine Lingerie for $15 each (located at 302 King Street), and they will certainly go quickly. Ticket price includes entry to the show, delicious hors d’oeuvres throughout the night, and two beverages. Also included with each ticket is the chance to win a luxurious Andres Italian silk robe in a raffle from Bits of Lace. The raffle will be held on the following Thursday at Men’s Night, December 16th, 2010 and the winner must be present to receive their prize. This event is held in store at Bits of Lace and will be the ideal opportunity to do your holiday shopping. The boutique extends their hours from 6 PM to 8 PM and their lingerie stylists will be at your service to assist in choosing the perfect piece.

In the spirit of giving back, Bits of Lace is providing the show attendees with another perk: each gift card purchase of $200 or over will receive a $50 add on from Bits of Lace as a thank you for attending. Bits of Lace will also be working to help make the Holidays bright for children in need by collecting new, unwrapped toys at both the Lingerie Fashion Show as well as in-store throughout the holidays. All gifted toys will be donated to Debi’s Kids, a charity organization that aims to help families that have no other resources during the holidays. Bits of Lace feels that contributing to the local community is one of the most important parts of the holiday season and are proud to help support those in need through their “Lingerie Fashion Show” event.
