Women’s Luncheons

DCA Women’s Luncheons are monthly social gatherings, for both women and men, offering various types of presenters, from authors, to those with poignant human interest stories, to specialists on travel, theater, gardening, entertaining and home décor. Luncheons are held monthly from October to June, and are catered by Michael Joseph’s Catering.

Upcoming Women’s Luncheons for the 2016-2017 season

http://dariendca.org/activities-programs/womens-group-luncheons/“A Fashion Show for the Generations” with The Darien Sport Shop
Tuesday, October 4th
12:15pm – 2:00pm
$20 DCA members, $25 public
Prepayment is required by noon on
Monday, October 3rd.

Our Women’s Luncheons season opener! The fashion show will feature clothes and accessories from The Darien Sport Shop for all ages and sizes, including young women and will range from a “Dress to Impress” look to a more “Casual Sporty” ensemble, and of course, a “Holiday Sparkler.” The event will also include a makeup demo by Andrew Stefanou Salon & Spa on how to create a smokey eye for the holiday season (they will also be doing hair and makeup for the models) and, of course, there will be a great gift bag for all attendees.

Luncheon will be provided by Michael Joseph’s Catering.

The Darien Sport Shop was founded 70 years ago, in 1946, in Darien, Connecticut by Stephen Zangrillo (‘Mr. Z’) when he fulfilled his dream of creating a store where every person who walked through its doors could be assured true customer service and a fantastic shopping experience. Today, under the leadership of Gina Zangrillo, Mr. Z’s daughter, the shop continues to provide this same high level of service and warm reception – the signature of a locally-owned, family-run business.  The Darien Sport Shop is a pillar of the community and an unparalleled shopping environment with three spacious stories featuring fine designer clothing, accessories, gifts and sporting equipment for men, women and children.
