Lord and Taylor’s “Perfect Pairs”

I have been shopping at Lord & Taylor as long as I can remember.  My favorite sales associate, Vivian Feld, works in their flagship stores on Fifth Avenue. First, she worked with my mother and now, she works with me.  Every few months, I show up in a panic to find clothes for a TV pet segment.  Over the years, Vivian’s pics (Calvin Klein, Tahari, Lafayette, Adrianna Papell, Donna Karan, Tadashi Shoji and others) have been worn on Fox & Friends, Nate Berkus, The View, VH1 and other national and local shows in New York City and around the country.

As a pet care and lifestyle expert as well as a devoted Lord & Taylor shopper, I am thrilled that one my favorite retailers will host “Perfect Pairs” Pet Adoption Day, celebrating Lord & Taylor’s biggest sandal sale of the season. The event will be held on Saturday, June 23 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Shoppers can purchase strappy heels, colorful flats, high and low wedges, brights and neutrals by some of their favorite shoe designers (Adrienne Vittadini, Anne Klein, Bandolino, Ivanka Trump, Vince Camuto, Ellen Tracey, Franco Sarto and Ralph Lauren) for work, play, day, night and even, to walk  their dog.  Regular and sale price-sandals are available.   Don’t forget to bring your coupon from the mailed, circular with you for additional savings.

Animal rescue groups that are part of Best Friends Animal Society’s No More Homeless Pets® Network will bring rescued pets available for adoption to select stores as part of a national effort to put shelter pets in front of retail shoppers.

According to Liz Rodbell, EVP & Chief Merchant, Hudson’s Bay Company, operator of Lord & Taylor, “Lord & Taylor is very excited to be partnering with Best Friends Animal Society in celebration of our biggest sandal sale of the season. We have incorporated adoptable dogs into our latest shoe campaign and are thrilled to be hosting Perfect Pairs Pet Adoption Day in Lord & Taylor stores nationwide. This is an important cause for our customers and we have high expectations that this event will help to draw awareness to adopting animals in need of a home.”

Adopting a dog is a 10-15 year commitment.  If you are not able to do so at this time, share this information with dog-loving friends or stop by to see the dogs and give a donation.   You can also text PETS to 50555 to give $10 to Best Friends Animal Society. Your $10 gift helps a homeless pet find a loving home.

Lastly, if you are a dog owner who just happens to love shoes, enter the Lord & Taylor Facebook Contest.  Submit a photo of your pet with your favorite shoes on the Lord & Taylor’s Facebook page for a chance to win a pair of shoes per month for a year.

I bet dog and shoe lover, Imelda Marcus, politician and widow of Ferdinand Marcos, President of the Philippines, wouldn’t  think to pass this one by.
