Vero Beach -- The Saint Edward's Parents Association will open the doors to the best shopping of year on Feb. 28, starting at 6 p.m.
The 22nd annual Trunk Show is open to the public and will feature more than 50 vendors from around the country. One-of-a-kind apparel, home décor, and jewelry will be offered throughout the weekend.
"This is such a fun weekend for the entire community," said Amy Diaz, event co-chairwoman.
"It's a chance for friends to gather for a unique shopping opportunity, and we especially love to see new faces in town that haven't had the chance to see our beautiful campus. Our guests will see some returning favorites, of course, such as Ginny's Orchids, CMM and Indo-Chic, but we have new vendors such as Chic by Design that will add to the celebratory ambiance of the event."
Chelsea's on Cardinal will provide catering services when it's time for a break from the action.
The public is invited to purchase preview party tickets for $50 per person for Friday evening, Feb. 28. Guests will have the first opportunity to shop from 6-8 p.m., and there is a gentlemen's lounge in addition to heavy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. All Preview Party ticket holders will have unlimited weekend admission and will be automatically entered into a raffle for $250 in Trunk Show cash.
"This year the trunk show has grown to over 50 vendors, and we carefully selected these merchants based on the unique nature of their inventory," said Marcia Ware, event co-chairwoman. "Our goal is to create a 'can't miss' shopping opportunity while raising funds to enhance the education of our children. It's a win-win for everyone."
The event is held on the School's lagoon-front campus off of A1A in Vero Beach.
Weekend admission is $5 per person for full weekend access. Hours on Saturday, March 1 are from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, March 2 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saint Edward's School 1895 Saint Edward's Drive, Vero Beach.
