We were at The Summit at Fritz Farm on April 27 for opening-day celebrations at several of the retailers at the mixed-use development, including Vineyard Vines and Bonobos.
This week, the festivities continue. Drop by Madewell from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday to shop for women’s clothing and apparel, and 10 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Lexington Art League. Also, you’ll get a free ‘bien fait’ tote with any purchase. Bien fait is French for “well done.”
Coming up for the weekend of May 12, Fabletics, the activewear brand co-founded by actress Kate Hudson, will celebrate the opening of its first Kentucky store at The Summit, with 20 percent off everything. The weekend will include a DJ, refreshments, and an “acro-yoga” demonstration.
