Nordstrom, magician Rich Bloch take center stage at fashion extravaganza

Women of the Eastern Shore take heed: Nordstrom is coming!

That’s right, in what they are billing as “the fashion event of the year,” the women of Beth Israel Synagogue in Salisbury welcome Nordstrom to the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel in Ocean City on April 4 for its premiere appearance on the Eastern Shore.

The runway show and luncheon promises to be a veritable Who’s Who of the community elite, and why not? Beginning with “butlered” hors d’oeuvres, cash bar and the “red carpetini” signature cocktail, the gala event will include a 50/50 raffle and a live auction that features a limo ride for 10 to Nordstrom in Annapolis, where the lucky participants get to shop in the store in addition to a choice of breakfast or lunch and facials or intimate fittings.

The fashion show, meanwhile, will feature 12 local ladies of all ages, shapes and sizes modeling the latest and trendiest haute couture from one of the nation’s leading department stores, with running commentary by Nordstrom’s resident fashion stylist. Models’ jewelry will be provided by Kuhn’s Jewelers, and their hair will be done by Robin Walters Salon & Day Spa in Ocean Pines. Also on tap will be touch-ups by Smashbox cosmetic artists, fragrances by Jo Malone and products from the La Mer skincare line.

There will be plenty of entertainment on-hand that day, too, including a performance by renowned magician and Dickens Parlour Theatre owner Rich Bloch and a special appearance by Cat Country radio celebrity E.J. Fox.

Tickets are $45 and can be had by calling 410-742-1022. Event coordinators report that the public response to the April outing has already been overwhelming, so they encourage those interested in attending to act quickly.

Proceeds of the event benefit Beth Israel Synagogue, an 86-year-old institution that stands as the only Conservative Jewish congregation on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
