Kristen Gibbins, Kim Schlegel Whitman, Roz Colombo and Nancy Gopez

With the St. Valentine’s Day Luncheon And Fashion Show less than a week away, Luncheon Co-Chairs Roz Colombo and Nancy Gopez made news last night at NorthPark’s Bulgari. With Luncheon patrons including KJ Sanger, Jodi Benefiel, Julie Buschman, Andrea and David Nayfa, Kimberly Alexander, Lisa Singleton, Mary and Joe Parker, Heather Randall, Lynn McBee, Lisa Cooley, Kristen Gibbins, Kim Schlegel and two-dimensional photo bomber Gina Lollobrigida surrounded by glorious gems and flutes of adult beverages, the “Team Colo-Go” revealed the NorthPark merchants whose fashions would be on the runway in NorthPark’s tented CenterPark Garden on Thursday, February 8. The Jan Strimple-produced fashion extravaganza will include Canali, CH Carolina Herrera, Elie Tahari, Neiman Marcus, Rebecca Taylor, Roberto Cavalli and Children’s Clothing by Peek Kids.

Raising the gorgeous factor for the models will be the team from Toni and Guy.

Besides this year’s change of locations to NorthPark, Roz and Nancy also revealed that the annual raffle has really ramped up. Unlike years past when the limited number of items could only be purchased at the patron party and luncheon, Raffle Co-Chairs Jenna Alexander, Andrea Nayfa and Lisa Bhattacharya have not only put together 19 pretty remarkable packages, they’ve also made the chances available online!

According to Nancy, “We have packages such as a trip to New York City to visit the Carolina Herrera showroom, a beautiful Lucrecia Waggoner installation art, suites for the Mavericks, Stars and Pink concert, a meet-and-greet with Brooks and Dunn, two tickets to Taylor Swift, a Versace handbag, beautiful jewelry and much more!”

There are various levels of opportunities with Pink Level ($50 ticket), Gold Level ($150) and Platinum Level ($300).

If you can’t make it to the luncheon because the tickets are getting scarce, you can still buy a raffle ticket.

Proceeds from the annual sweetheart event will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of North Texas.

TACA RBC Wealth Management Custom Auction Item #5

What would an black-tie auction be without a little bling, bling? Flat! And the TACA RBC Wealth Management Customer Auction is about as flat as a Louboutin boot. But leave it to TACA to add a little extra oomph to their jewelry offering.

Item #5 — Living on Texas Time (apologies to Tulsa) – Neiman Marcus and BVLGARI – now both time-honored Dallas traditions. (Value: $32,000)

It wouldn’t be absolutely correct to say that since the beginning of time, Bulgari has been ticking. But since elegant people have recognized that timepieces were works of art, Bulgari has been producing the gems that donned wrists in boardrooms and in ballrooms.

TACA has arranged for “His and Hers” Bulgari watches for the winning bidder —

  • His is a 42mm chrono automatic function, steel case and bracelet, silver dial with central date
  • Hers is a 33 mm automatic movement, 18kt yellow gold case and bracelet, silver dial with central date

But let’s not stop with this time-honored item. TACA has also arranged for you enjoy a two-day stay in NYC with accommodations at The Plaza. In addition you’ll spend a day at Bulgari in NYC and lunch with Nichola Bulgari (vice chairman of Bulgari Group and grandson of its founder). This is a rare treasure for  isn’t a collector or just someone with time on his/her hands.
