Jill Zarin’s 4th Annual Lux Lunch had “a little something for everyone,” as they say. There was a huge BBQ going on by the Zarin’s gorgeous Southampton “endless” pool, inside the kitchen was a “create your own chocolates” stand, in the living room was an assortment of highly creative jewelry and clothing designers (including Chic Boutique and Lyla Renai) and just below the living room was a mini beauty salon where guests got manis, chair massages, makeup and hair styling. Oh, I forgot one little thing–a huge white tent in front of the driveway that boasted over 50 great brands at beautiful booths, including Jetsmart, Grande Lash, Gigi Bags, Caine + Austin Skincare, Discover The Palm Beaches, Cynthia Bailey Eyewear and more. I was lucky enough to sample LemonKind’s Strength Fruit + Vegetable Juice inside the tent to give me a little energy to relax before I hit all the booths! After I was done, I had drinks featuring Blue Ice Vodka (America’s #1 potato vodka) to relax!
Let me add that I was thrilled to see Michael and the gang from Antico Noe on East 53rd Street serving up their super authentic paninis to guests. They even had a special sandwich called the Jill Zarin that had super fresh red peppers and an assortment of Italian charcuterie items on it!
Not only did Lux Lunch raise over $200K for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital (certainly enough of a reason to go to a Hamptons party) but it was a fabulous opportunity for fans of the Real Housewives franchise to mix and mingle with the first ladies of reality TV. A tremendous amount of swag is handed out at this VIP event but it is truly all about getting together with friends, relaxing by the pool and meeting new people who care as much about “giving back” as promoting their innovative brands. I will be back again next year! Good to see the Housewives supporting each other!
P.S. All party guests who stopped by the Caine + Austin Skincare booth got to stop by their offices near Bloomingdale’s and get a free facial. I have to say their skin pads really work for both anti-aging and anti-acne treatment. You can purchase their wonderful products at Macy’s!
