Back to Style +15 Fashion and Guerilla Dining

This week downtown was treated to a mobile fashion show, and two unsuspecting (and very lucky!)  brownbaggers got a serious lunch upgrade. These events – with many more to come – are part of downtown’s Get Back to Style in September promotion.

The fashion show had models strutting through +15s clad in great new fall styles from downtown retailer Tristan.  There will be plenty more of these shows throughout September. They could happen anywhere – ideally outside (weather permitting) where we’ll bring the catwalk to a crosswalk near you. If you see our bright pink banner and pink-shirted paparazzi you’ll know a fashion show is about to break out.

For our “guerilla dining” event two folks we spotted at Eau Claire market were treated to duck confit and dessert served up by the talented chefs of Q Haute Cuisine.  Our diners loved their lunch and with a cozy table for two with white linens, stemware and and polished silverware it sure beats a park bench. We’ll be looking out for people to treat to impromptu gourmet lunches all this month. It could happen to you – so you might want to dress up for lunch!

Get Back to Style in September runs until Oct 2. There will be special promotions and events from our merchants and restaurants. Plus more Random Acts of Style – mobile makeovers, walking billboards, theatre on the street and more. Get more deets and learn about our awesome Style Getaway contest (including a $1000 shopping spree!) at our website.
