Although, I am compensated for the post, my excitement is all the way for real.
Now, let’s talk about my very own priceless experience. First, there were only five available offers for this experience, making it super exclusive and highly covetable. Then, the offer included a personal shopping experience with a Saks stylist and a $250 gift card. So, not only did I get admission to VIP event, but I get to shop with consultation on the side. What a treat!
My evening began with a mini-tour of the Saks department store with my stylist, stopping by the swim section to browse. (I’m leaving for Hawaii next week and wanted to shop for more options.) There was a reserved dressing room for me to try on my selections. Afterwards, I was escorted to Cafe SFA, on the eighth floor, where I met up with my boyfriend to begin the night. We sipped on some bubbly and nibbled on the passed hors d’oeuvres. When it was time to head outside, we were escorted to our seats across from the Saks building to watch the show. Since it was pretty cold outside, they provided us with hot chocolate and a blanket. After we snugly tucked ourselves in, the show began with special performances by Grammy Award-winning violinist, Joshua Bell, singer Frankie Morena and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City. Of course, my favorite part had to be the ballet dance by the Jacqueline Onassis School with snow flurrying down on us. As the windows unveiled, the iconic event ended with an out-of-the-world projection onto the Saks building with the Saks Yeti making its appearance.
Andy and I made our way back inside to warm up and watch 3D snowflakes get printed. After the crowd around the windows subsided, we went back outside to view the six Yeti-themed scenarios.
Thanks so much to MasterCard for an unforgettable experience with Saks Fifth Avenue. I’m full of holiday spirit, and there was not a better way to kick off the season than this night. If you live in the New York metro area or visiting before December 24th, you can get a 3D-printed snowflake at Saks when you spend over $150 and take a piece of the holiday window decor home.
