A Job Whale Done

Thank you! Thanks to Vineyard Vines Tysons Galleria for their sponsorship of Shop For A Cause with Maryland Pink and Green. This week shoppers saved 10% off their purchase and Vineyard Vines donated 10% to the Ronald McDonald House of Greater Washington DC.

The colorful sign at the front of the store announced the exciting event.

Party guests enjoyed sweet pink and green treats and pink lemonade while they shopped. The whale cupcakes were adorable!  People returned for more and more of the yummy jelly beans. 

More than once I found myself singing along with the musical duet. The group used an interesting array of instruments, like a ring of house and car keys, and had fantastic interpretations of songs from many decades. My favorite was The Police’s hit Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic. They were so good that I was sad when they had to take a break!

Unlike other shopping events I have attended or hosted in the past month, the audience at Vineyard Vines was probably equally split between men and women. The Vineyard Vines fall collection for men is so nice! The fabrics are incredibly soft and comfortable, while the color palette is pleasing to both conservative and eclectic styles. The men at the party ranged in age from college age students to working professionals to one man who was might have been in his 60s.

If I had a little boy, I would love to see him in a preppy outfit like this one! Isn’t it the best?

For women, I love the soft cardigan sweaters and comfy fleece pullovers. They're perfect for crisp fall days. The silk skirts are another favorite.  They're perfect for work!

The surprise of the night was the arrival of the Vineyard Vines whale mascot!

Thanks to everyone who attended the event or ordered by phone. You helped make a little magic for a wonderful cause. It was a job whale done!

If you're at Tysons Galleria, be sure to visit the friendly peeps at Vineyard Vines. You'll find a gorgeous store with many items that are exclusive to Washington, DC. "Like" the Vineyard Vines Tysons Galleria Facebook page to find out the latest about special events, exclusives, and sales.

Shopping is fun, but shopping to help a good cause is even better!
