Benilde-St. Margaret’s Announces
“Knightsbridge, A Truly Royal Shopping Experience”
Free, Open to the public, One-day only British-Inspired Shopping Event
The Parent Association of Benilde-St. Margaret’s, a college preparatory school and dynamic learning community, has curated 60 smashing merchants for a one-of-a-kind, one-day only shopping event.
BSM is hosting its second annual Knightsbridge holiday shopping boutique. Inspired by one of London’s most famous shopping districts, Knightsbridge, the school’s spacious Haben Center will be transformed “Brit-style” into a lively collection of 60 small boutique shops and market stalls: think Union Jack signing, Beatles music, English Breakfast Tea served in a Euro-style café, and rows and rows of stylish, must-have goods.
A fresh mix of merchants will offer a range of one-off creations, tasteful treats and high-end artisan goods including fashion, jewelry, cosmetics & skincare, home accessories, and even fancy food. Like its famous London namesake, BSM’s Knightsbridge caters to all tastes: vintage, eclectic, trendy, and timeless.
For those who crave the excitement of busting down the doors at midnight on Thanksgiving, BSM’s Knightsbridge is like Black Friday meets Small Business Saturday. The vibrant market-hall venue, sensational variety and brilliant values all come together for a day long “shop small” event not to be missed. And best of all, it happens a week before the madness of the holiday shopping season starts in earnest.
Saturday, November 17, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Benilde-St. Margaret’s Haben Center– 2501 Highway 100 South, St. Louis Park
Admission is free and the event is open to the public. All participating merchants will donate 15% of the day’s sales to BSM’s Parent Association. Proceeds will be used to help us reach our goal of providing truly outstanding educational opportunities for our students and school programs.
Knightsbridge presents the perfect opportunity to get a jumpstart on holiday shopping for those who love upscale, can’t-find-just-anywhere boutique-style merchandise. Participating merchants include Il Vostro Boutique (trend-driven & classic fashion from under-the-radar designers), Amerigo & Amerigo (distinctive jewelry from family merchants dating back to 1720 Spain), Katie Murphy Stationary (gorgeous, custom paper goods), SaBella (think bling), Rodan & Fields (serious skincare), Sunrise Creative Gourmet (dried pasta and scratch sauces), and Slim’s Boot Wraps (faux fur), just to name a few.
