What are you doing Thursday night? If you are in New York City come by Macy’s in Herald Square at 6pm and help me achieve my 101 in 1001 goal of more blates! It is the launch of Macy’s American Icons, they are hosting a party, and you are all invited! What are we going to be doing on Thursday? Well, first we are going to be taking selfies at the at one of patriotic photo opps in store, and of course using the #AmericanSelfie hashtag. Then we will explore different parts of the iconic store as there are five different things happening:
Main Floor: Meet Carl Ray, makeup artist for America’s First Lady! Learn from Carl how to glam up your look as he leads a class on the latest beauty trends. Afterward, take your fabulous #AmericanSelfie and receive a special gift card with your Cosmetics purchase of $50 or more!
Women’s on 4: Discover everything you need to put together a timeless, All-American ensemble at our fashion party highlighting the latest Spring collections. Shop your favorites while our band plays classic American tunes.
Women’s on 5: Catch Dancing with the Stars alum Maksim Chmerkovskiy in an early preview of SWAY: A Dance Triology! The first 150 customers in line can have their photo taken with Maksim, and make any $100 purchase from our Women’s departments to receive a pair of tickets to SWAY, playing June 5th and 6th at the Hammerstien Ballroom
Men’s on 5: Macy’s is honoring America’s veterans with an in-store give-back program to support Got Your 6, a coalition of veteran-focused, non-profit partners who are working to help veterans make America stronger. Macy’s is proud to support those who have served our country with Got Your 6, and to show our appreciation we’ve invited author, Marine Corp veteran and fellow Got Your 6 supporter, Phil Klay to read from his short story collection Redeployment. Plus, meet fellow Got Your 6 supporter J.W. Cortes, the Brooklyn-born Iraq War veteran and former Marine turned New York City cop who now stars on the hit prime-time series GOTHAM.
Furniture Department on 9: Beginning at 6pm, be one of the first 100 customers and receive a wristband for “A Bite of the Boroughs”, where you can sample delectable dishes from Seamstress, Rustik Tavern, Via Vai, Delicioso Coco Helado, Max’s Esca, Junior’s Cheesecake, Made from Scratch, Cove Lounge, Stella 34, and more. Come hungry! Plus, with any furniture purchase of $50 or more you’ll receive a special gift!
And if these were not iconic and American enough, Macy’s is partnering with veterans with those who have served our country alongside Got Your 6.
