I recently got word from celebrity event planners Sean Koski and Brian Kelly (who produce a lot of event in the Hamptons) that they will be the masterminds behind Jill Zarin’s Luxury Luncheon to benefit the Bobby Zarin Memorial Trust in Southampton on Saturday, July 16th, 2022. This is not your run of a mill Hamptons luxury luncheon–it is my very favorite Hamptons event every year and I have missed it since Jill took a hiatus after having the last one in July 2018.
The event will feature a red carpet, VIP entrance and onsite activations by participating brands and sponsors in categories such as fashion, beauty, wellness, spirits, home decor, technology and tourism, and will honor Jill’s late husband Bobby Zarin and his long-standing battle with thyroid cancer. This amazing event will also include an exclusive Jill & Ally pop-up shop, VIP gift bags valued at up to $5,000 and a star studded celebrity guest list.
All of the event’s guests will be treated to a day of glitz and glam as they experience on-site activations and designer pop-ups. Back by popular demand is Jill’s beauty bar–and Golden Ticket holders will be gifted her favorite hero products courtesy of Grande Cosmetics, Poo-Pourri, SkinPharm, Kiehls, One Ocean Beauty, Coola and Hers. Guests will also get complementary beauty touch ups from BeachWaver and Sania’s Brow Bar and wellness services provided by Dolce Aesthetics New York and Alchemy 43. Fashion secrets will be shared by B-Six and jewelry gifted by Kendra Scott. If that is not enough, there will be a trunk show from Modern Picnic and Not Your Average Lunchbox.
Do not fear if you can’t afford the coveted Golden Ticket–you will be getting access to the beauty treatments and also be taking home some of the products on display via the gift bag you will be receiving at the end of the event!
Two exciting exhibitors will be onsite for the first time! The first one is HempHera, a CBD Nano-Amplified skin care line founded by Ashley Brooke Osborn. This brand is safe for ALL skin types but is especially great for sensitive, irritated, or mature skin. The second one will be Emberli Pridham’s A Real Life Fairy Tale–guests will be leaving with signed copies of this book!
Jill and daughter Ally Shapiro will showcase their collection of home decor accessories and manifestation crystal candles under a white tent. Jill’s brand, Jill Zarin Home, will showcase her namesake rugs and merch line inspired by the REAL HOUSEWIVES series.
Event planners Sean Koski and Brian Kelly will include a booth full of innovative technology for guests to experience. Meetnorth, an app revolutionizing the way people socialize, Meal Pass by Res and Douglas Elliman, one of the largest residential brokerage companies in the New York metropolitan area will be onsite to explore digitally their top-tier properties exclusive to them.
