Themed areas include the Home and Garden Pavillion sponsored by Champion Windows, Health and Wellness Lane sponsored by Baptist Health, Fashion Avenue sponsored by Dillards, Culinary Court, and The Marketplace.  A sampling of other cool goings-on include (click here for complete schedule):

  • Sat. 1pm: Jones New York “How to Wear It” Fashion Show

  • Sat. 3pm: Self Defense for Women
  • Sun. 1pm: Container Garden seminar
  • Sun. 2pm: Beauty Buzz seminar
  • Ongoing: Health Screenings from Baptist Health

I have attended a similar event in St. Louis, MO and am super excited to check this out.  I’m a little nervous about the Paula Deen cooking show though.  When I see her on TV, I can’t resist repeating everything she says just to try out her accent.  Hopefully I can keep myself stifled when I see her live!  For sure I’ll be sniffing around the vendor booths for all the freebies I can get my hot little hands on, and I’m hoping to score one of the 5 minute personal style consultations with Lloyd Boston.  I’m also curious about what will be available in The Marketplace: I’ll be toting some mad money in case I don’t win the $500 vendor spending spree giveaway.

Oh, what’s that?  You want to go to?  Well, it just so happens that I have a pair of weekend passes to give away.
