CoolSprings Galleria set to host its first official Fashions Night Out

Since its 2009 genesis in New York by Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenburg, president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Fashion’s Night Out has grown to be represented in all 50 states as well as over 20 other countries.

On Thursday, Sept, 6, from 6 to 9 p.m., CoolSprings Galleria invites shoppers to take part in an evening of fashion and represent Tennessee in this unprecedented global party. Although the venue for the party is a familiar one, the line-up of events occurring both in and out of stores is sure to provide an evening at the mall unlike any other. Select stores will feature unique events, food, and promotions throughout the evening.

“This celebration is not only about all things fashion; it is also about giving back to local causes while doing something we all love – shopping!” exclaimed Dana Katterjohn, Regional Marketing Director for CBL & Associates Properties. The original Fashion’s Night Out in New York supports the NYC AIDS Fund each year with a portion of profits made and through special night-of events that directly donate funds to the cause.

Shoppers at CoolSprings Galleria will be invited to support several local organizations, including Komen Nashville, which will offer a chance to win a $50 Wacoal bra, the YMCA After Breast Cancer Program who will have information about the Heroes in Heels Fashion Show at CoolSprings Galleria on Sept.11, and Team in Training/Lukemia and Lymphoma Society which will offer a prize wheel and a silent auction throughout the evening.

Shoppers will also enjoy live entertainment from Nashville favorite Preston Leatherman from 6-7 p.m. in Center Court. Following the show, Dillard’s will offer a Fall Fashion Preview on the main stage in center court at 7 p.m. Other stores offering in-store events include Belk, Coldwater Creek, David Parker Shoes, Bare Escentuals, J.Crew, New York and Company and more. Finally, the first 50 shoppers at Guest Services when the event begins at 6pm will receive a free swag bag filled with goodies, coupons and possibly a Mall Gift Card worth up to $25 (some restrictions apply).

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
