The new Neiman Marcus store in Fort Worth at The Shops at Clearfork held a private preview shopping event on Thursday, Feb. 9, the day before the new store officially opens.
Never failing to do things up in a big Texas way, guests entering the new store, guests were greeted at valet by life-size Longhorn art, created by local artist Loran Thrasher.
Neiman Marcus Fort Worth selected the Creative Arts Program at Cook Children’s Medical Center to receive a donation in honor our new The Shops at Clearfork location. This gift will help patients by supplying the tools needed for creative expression, with the goal of helping children and their families cope during a most difficult time.
In addition to the donation, Neiman Marcus Fort Worth is saluting the partnership with Cook Children’s displaying patient art pieces at the valet entrance store window. The window showcases a collection of existing patient art, as well as new curated art, specifically for the new grand opening.
As guests roamed the new store, beats by DJ Lucy Wrubel were spinning in Ladies Shoes, while classic pop tunes from Hunter Sullivan played throughout the Men’s area and Prophets and Outlaws’ Texas soul played on the second floor.
The store’s signature popovers and other items were served in the NM Café, with Chef Jon Bonnel who provided catering throughout the store.
Guests were offered hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows and fudgesicles as a departing treat. There was also a favor bag filled with items from Le Metier de Beaute, Tom Ford, R&Co, La Prairie, and a signature Neiman Marcus shopping bag with mints and a chocolate chip cookie.
