Look Local Night To Take Over Houston Street

By Burgundy Woods | May 21 2018

This month marks the 300th birthday of our beloved San Antonio and already we are in full gear with great events and colorful celebrations. We here at Style Lush TV are also in full gear, prepping for May 31st with our fashionable contribution to the season.

Fashion elite, save the date for May 31st as we present Look Local Night, the city’s chicest incentive to shop local! Look Local Night is in its second year and is an annual celebration of our local retail entrepreneurs. In the spirit of valuing their hard work and the cultural integrity their businesses bring to our city, Look Local Night will showcase their latest inventory on the runway and give elite shoppers the opportunity to buy the fashion before anyone else at their pop up shop located onsite. This year, in honor of the Tricentennial, we are celebrating bigger and better than ever. Prepare for a glamorous evening of fashion as we move the event to one of San Antonio’s most famous locations, Houston Street. Rich in retail history, Houston Street will serve as the perfect backdrop for the evening and aims to support the Activate Houston Street Initiative that is currently gaining momentum.

Our direct partner for the evening is OPEN Downtown Pop Up Shops. If you have ever dreamed of a brick and mortar in the heart of the City, you will want to come out and meet the organization. The program is an initiative of the Center City Development and Operations Department (CCDO) in partnership with property owners and retailers to offer local entrepreneurs a no-cost/ low-cost short-term lease in vacant downtown properties. The OPEN Downtown Pop Up Shop Program creates an environment that engages customers, offers participants a vibrant urban space and shepherds those who are ready to move into a brick and mortar in the heart of our fabulous City.

The event is free to the public but elite shoppers will want to purchase the Style Lush VIP Ticket Experience. Gain access to the VIP area with luxury spirits, “mini manis” with the talented Color Me Polish & Nail Creations on Broadway, makeup touches with award winning talent from TWIRL Salon and be entered to win a pair of tickets to the San Antonio Fashion Awards happening October 11th, 2018.

With so many things to celebrate this year, you will not want to miss this event. Enjoy an evening of fashion while supporting your local economy and the luxurious transformation of Houston Street in beautiful Downtown San Antonio. To get your hands on VIP tickets, visit Eventbrite. Part of the proceeds will benefit SMART 501c3, so once again, enjoy guilt free shopping for numerous causes and reasons to celebrate.

Other partners for this event include Downtown San Antonio, District 1 Councilman Roberto Treviño, and SA2020. Dress code for the evening is your chicest cocktail attire. See you there!
