Swap Style Fashion Show:
9:30 to 10 pm
Join The Swapaholics, America's favorite clothing swap hostesses, for a celebration of sustainable style with Lulus.com — who will be hiding over 100 free samples of their clothing & accessories throughout the clothing swap, mixed in with swappers' donations from their own closets, like buried treasure!
We're coming to San Francisco for
the first time, bringing together swappers & fashion bloggers from all over Northern California for a fun
night of retail therapy and recycling — and everything left over at the end of the night goes to support Goodwill Industries of San Francisco, San Mateo & Marin Counties.
Bring a Bag, Get a Bag:
Bring a bag full of all those like-new and gently worn clothes, shoes, accessories & jewelry just taking up space in your closet & swap them in for a new bag full of finds from fellow fashion-obsessed ladies in the Bay Area — all for just the cost of admission!
Sip & Snack:
Nosh on healthy gourmet snacks from the girls at San Francisco-based Pretzel Crisps & dish about recipe ideas for your next house party while sipping on complimentary wines from our friends at Second Glass.
Show Off Your Swap Style:
Take pictures with your friends and all your new favorite scores in our Swap Style Photo Booth. Pose with your finds and other props, then tag yourself on Facebook to share your swap scores with your friends.
Enter to Win a Closet Restock:
Post your photos, "squee!" moments, fun finds & other updates throughout the event to Twitter using the hashtag #SwapLulus to @Lulusdotcom & @TheSwapaholics for a chance to win a $100 gift card from Lulus.com to fill your closet back up with some more scores!
Feel Good & Do Good:
All the clothing left over at the end of the swap will be donated to Goodwill Industries of San Francisco, San Mateo & Marin Counties, to be sold in their shops to raise money for their wonderful job training, empowerment & youth programs.
