In a city known for its overwhelming array of department stores, boutiques and designer showrooms, Mandarin Oriental, New York has launched a new travel package that simplifies and glamorizes New York City shopping expeditions for teenage girls and their parents.
"Girl's Guide to Glamour in Gotham" is designed to provide teens with the inside scoop on big city shopping with the help of a professional guide from Shop Gotham, a company that specializes in custom, guided shopping/sightseeing tours. During their tour, teens may visit Manhattan's classic shopping landmarks, such as 5th Avenue and Bloomingdale's, unique venues in NoLita or SoHo, or the famed sample sales and showrooms of the city's garment district. Shop Gotham can custom tailor the shopping excursion with a themed focus that could include a boutique-to-boutique quest for the perfect back-to-school jeans in Manhattan's trendy NoLita neighborhood, a prom dress hunt at Cynthia Rowley and other hip designer shops, or a shopping excursion that includes a tour of some of Sex in the City's most memorable locations. Shop Gotham's 4-hour tour accommodates up to 4 people and includes chauffeured transportation by limousine or Lincoln Navigator for a truly deluxe shopping experience.
The "Guide to Glamour" continues with a VIP-visit to Manhattan's grande dame of shopping, Bergdorf Goodman. The first stop is an "On5ive" consultation with a Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper who specializes in styling for young VIPs and teen celebrities, followed by a Chanel makeover, BuffSpa Manicure and a "Ladies-Who-Shop" lunch at Goodman's Café.
"The ‘Guide to Glamour' is an ideal way to celebrate a teen's birthday, graduation or simply for a fun mother-daughter shopping spree," states Kristin Ruble, Mandarin Oriental's Director of Sales and Marketing. "While designed for our younger guests, the package offers the epitome of luxury for girls of all ages."
The "Girl's Guide to Glamour in Gotham" package offers a range of room options for a luxurious one-night stay at Mandarin Oriental, New York, conveniently located in Manhattan's newest shopping Mecca, the Time Warner Center. A Bose IPOD docking station is included in the room for use during the stay.
