Shopping Up a Storm in San Francisco With the Fairmont


Calvin Klein, Diane von Furstenberg, Helmut Lang, Lacoste, Michael Kors, Moschino, Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang, Zac Posen…these are just a few of the designers we love to shop. Just as a nice dinner at the newest five-star restaurant or a trip to the spa can really make a trip to a new city memorable, our inner shop-a-holic would add that so too can some luxury shopping! This month we’re traveling to San Francisco, and we’re planning to shop all the brands just mentioned thanks to the Fairmont San Francisco. The luxury hotel’s Little Brown Bag package is a fashionistas dream come true, bringing together the worlds of luxury accommodations and high-end designer shopping.

The Fairmont is giving guests a Bloomingdale’s gift card and a 15% off all-day savings certificate as an added incentive for those hitting the racks (as though we needed any extra incentive to shop…). There’s no need to haul your purchases all over town through the day; the Fairmont will arrange to have your packages delivered back to your room at the hotel. Once you’ve shopped til you’ve dropped, you can indulge in a Beauty Imaging System skin analysis and facial treatment from cult-favorite Japanese beauty brand SK-II. When you’re pampered and glowing, the Fairmont will get you ready for a night out on the town (wearing a new Zac Posen dress, perhaps) with a one-on-one session with a Dior makeup artist. Top off your day with a delicious meal at the Gary Danko restaurant, and voilà – a perfect, memorable weekend!

The Fairmont San Francisco is located at 950 Mason Street, San Francisco, CA 94108. For more information call (415) 772-5000 or visit their website. Photos courtesy Fairmont.
