Posh Sale For Lighthouse International

Every year, Lighthouse International hosts an amazing designer sale. There are vintage cloths, new designer cloths, shoes, jewelry, belts, hats. Basically, if it's fashion it's for sale. Designer donations include, Chanel, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Prada, Marni and so on and so forth.

We were offered a peak in the fashion closet today and found an Oscar de la Renta dress for $150, a Matthew Williamson top for $125 (sure beats H&M) and a vintage Victor Costa for $150. We also found Prada, Chanel and Manolo Blahnik shoes priced from $75 to $100. However, the most exciting find was the "Kim Cattrall shoe box." The Sex and the City star donated dozens of some of the most gorgeous shoes imaginable. Inside the box were rhinestone encrusted Giuseppe Zanotti ($200 to $250), black satin Sonia Rykiel pumps with large gems ($300), nude jeweled Valentinos ($250) and Manolos iced with jewels ($400).

All of the money raised from the Posh Sale benefits Lighthouse International, a non-profit organization whose mission is to fight vision loss through prevention, treatment and empowerment. The event runs from Wednesday, May 13 to Sunday, May 17. Tickets to the Sneak Preview and Cocktail Party cost $250 and $200, respectively. And you know those with the first dibs will take all the top picks. The more economical daily tickets cost $10 and those can't stay away can buy a four day pass for $30.

Is there normally a line in the morning for the first general day (Thursday)?

Thanks

Good question!
They were mostly 39s-- my size!

I went for the public opening this morning. Not nearly as glamorous as the Press day. I think only 10% of attendees were UNDER 65 years old and the place smelled like old clothes.

However, it is for charity and I did find a classic puffy Lanvin summer top (07) for $75. So all's well that ends well.
