Shopping without guilt is always a bonus. Running Thursday through Sunday, the shops at Green Spring Station will host Style at the Station, a three-day event chock full of fashion fun, entertainment, and wallet-friendly discounts. Shoppers and window-shoppers alike will enjoy, among other things, free up-dos from UNO Salon (Thursday and Friday only), champagne at The Pleasure of Your Company, caramel apple tastings at The Nut Farm & Creamery, a Friday night free, live performance by the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, and a Saturday evening fashion show to benefit Komen Maryland. Participating merchants will offer discounts and deals for shoppers. Among the big events: Essentials by Panache will host a trunk show for Hammitt Los Angeles luxury handbags. (Seen on well-known arms like Angelina Jolie, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton.) And Friday, Wee Chic will host a trunk show for popular baby line Tea.
And the best part? It’s all for a good cause! For every dollar spent during the event, participating merchants will donate a portion of sales to such charities as the Mildred Mindell Cancer Center, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Priceless Gowns Project, The Nikki Perlow Foundation, United Way of Maryland, Animal Rescue, and the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra.
