Love Heals 2009 Really Helps Love Heal

I am so excited that I’ll be partaking in the Love Heals 2009 festivities tomorrow in Southampton.   It is a great cause, one that I became aware of because Claiborne by John Bartlett is one of the Grand Sponsors of the event.  Love Heals supports the Alison Gertz foundation which educates students in New York City about HIV/AIDS by visiting schools and community groups, particularly in high-risk communities.
The Hubby and I are actually going to this event – sans kids.  So, it’ll be a one night vacation, date-night and work function all rolled into one. Both sets of grandparents will be taking care of the girls.  We’ll miss them both so much, but we need this much needed break.  We have been working so hard the past several months, and we feel more like a tag-team rather than husband and wife.  It’ll be good to have a long 2.5 hour drive out to Southampton, walk around to the stores, maybe get some Dreesen’s in East Hampton, go OUT, and sleep past 7 am.  There’ll be a lot of Love Healing all around!


Shopping For Father’s Day: Claiborne by John Bartlett to the Rescue!

Ok, so I may be biased, but, if you are going to shop for dad this weekend, head to the newly launched Claiborne by John Bartlett shop.  It’s only slightly uptown to the west village to 143 Seventh Avenue @ Charles Street (take the 2/3 to 14th street, and walk south a couple of blocks).

The collection is “authentic American style for the authentic American man”.  It’s grown-up, easy and well-priced:  from polos at $39.50, plaid shorts at $55 and long-sleeved button down mini-gingham shirts at $69.50, they are all great gifts for dad!  Also, if you purchase $75 or more you  get some fun gifts with your purchase! The store is open 11-7 daily from Thursday 6/18 – Monday 6/22, so hurry up and bring dad shopping.  And definitely don’t get him another tie.
