October is here! This month we are joining friends internationally to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so think pink! Throughout the month of October, we will be holding a series of in-store events. First week of October we will be slowly opening for boutique browsing with the offering of hot tea and a live jazz trio. Stay tuned.
Week two, we’re partnering with Award-winning Norwegian designer/artist Lise Ellingsen to host a ‘Blondes Make Better T-shirts & Push Up for Support’ fundraiser.
Taste Collection will be hosting an in-store Push-Up 4 Support Challenge, available for everyone – women and men, young and old. Join breast cancer survivor, and BMBTS spokeswoman, Kaia Høidalen as she promotes breast cancer awareness. PureGreen, our friendly neighborhood store, will also be hosting a tasting table from their incredible juice selection.
Week three, we will be joining forces with NYC’s Annual Lower East Side Pickle Day, October 15th 2017 on Orchard Street between Delancey and E. Houston. Orchard Street will once again be transformed into a pickle bazaar as we fill the LES with 20+ picklers, tasty pickled and non-pickled treats, tons of local boutiques like ours and restaurants, live music, games, activities and the world’s first EVER home pickling/dancing contest. Join us in our bright PINK booth for Taste Collection’s official Breast Cancer Awareness Raffle. For every day-of in-store purchase, you will be entered to win an assortment of local goodies and treats.
Week four, if you’ve never had the opportunity to participate in NYC’s Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade, this is your chance! Saturday, October 21st, 2017 from Noon to 3 p.m. RAIN OR SHINE! CNN calls it “the largest dog costume parade in the world” with hundreds of dogs in costumes and thousands of spectators. After the parade, come stop by our shop for a post-parade photoshoot and schmooze, or a glass of bubbles on us! There will be treats for you and your pooch so swing by and bring friends!
And last but not least, expect a Halloween extravaganza coming around the end of this month. As of next week, Taste Collection will officially exist on Google Maps and can be tagged in location on Instagram and Facebook, so don’t forget to tag us and share your support! Glisten and glimmer on, pals- here’s to October!
Yours truly, Taste Collection
