During a rainy Fashion’s Night Out, the Saks Fifth Avenue in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh stood out like a beacon of everything stylish and fabulous. Whether you are a frequent shopper at Saks or you dream of shopping there one day, it’s a great place to visit for some fall inspiration and fashion camaraderie.
The theme of the night was technology. Blogging and social media were embraced with a VIP area as well as some visitors from the Carnegie Science Center. Stylelist.com was in attendance taking before and after pictures of guests in their Saks styled outfits for a chance to win a $500 gift card. Overall it was all very blogger friendly.
Guests enjoy dry ice cream in front of the Theory display.
Local DJs and music were on every floor as well as some kind of treat in the form of candy, cupcakes, wine, and more.
For me, looking at all of the on trend displays for fall was the biggest highlight. I can’t wait to pull out my chunky sweaters for cooler weather and the gorgeous sweaters on display definitely stole the show. There were various boho/70s looks, something I will truly be embracing this fall with wide leg pants and flowy tops. Although dark rich colors were prominent, it looks as though you shouldn’t rule out brights just yet. See the hats and glove display below. It was one of my favorites.
Models Marissa and Maddie look great in their fall styles. I loved the updated Burberry print on this dress.
While there I was able to take a tour of the store with Marketing Director Meg Flynn, and I was given the chance to see just how specialized the shopping experience at Saks really is. Regular shoppers can try on clothes in their own private dressing room and seek the help of a stylist by joining the Fifth Avenue Club. Perfume launches happen at Saks far in advance of other stores, such as Maison Martin Margiela’s (untitled), a light flowery scent. Designers rent space to showcase their wears. It’s truly like having access to New York City’s Fifth Avenue.
