This week - and heading into the weekend - we found some events worth checking out:
- Nordstrom Arden Fair will host a trunk show from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday to preview the exclusive fall Gucci ready-to-wear women's collection. A representative from the fashion line will be in the in-store Gucci boutique (second floor) to answer questions and assist customers. There will be informal modeling. For more information: (916) 646-2400, ext. 1350.
- Total Beauty Experience (2929 Arden Way) will host two Jane Iredale makeup classes at 3 and 6 p.m. Thursday at the store. Celebrity artist Brian Lorenz will conduct the demos and teach the classes. Guests will get tips on makeup application to suit their daily routines. Following the demos, guests can actually apply their own makeup - assisted by the Jane Iredale team. Brian's background includes lots of face time with celebrities for the stage and the red carpet. You might have caught him on TV. If so, you know he's got a big personality and is fun to work with. There will be gifts with purchase and refreshments during each class. Reservations are a must because each demo is limited to 20 people. A non-refundable $25 reservation fee is required and can be redeemed in Jane Iredale products on Thursday. For more information: (916) 481-7994.
