Eileen Fisher Celebrates New Collection with Cherry Blossom Festival

Sakura Cherry Blossom Festival at Eileen Fisher

Thursday, May 24 from 10:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

Eileen Fisher – 521 Madison Avenue (between 53rd and 54th Streets)

Admission: Free

The sakura may have already bloomed and scattered in New York, but Eileen Fisher is bringing them back for one day. The clothing icon’s Midtown East location will serve cherry blossom tea while customers discover the fabulous Japanese fabrics in the brand’s new Spring Collection.

Customers will receive $25 off and a surprise gift for purchases of $50 or more. (Discount does not apply to System Pieces.)

Internationally known for her sophisticated collections that emphasize comfort, Fisher originally moved from Chicago to New York to become an interior designer, but seeing the kimono on a trip to Japan inspired her to dive into the world of fashion. She launched her women’s clothing line in 1984, creating eco-friendly styles while operating a socially conscious business. (Read Janet Malcolm’s 2013 article in The New Yorker about how Fisher’s chance encounter with a Japanese designer unexpectedly set her on her fashion course.)

Japan continues to inspire Fisher, as evidenced by her new collection and the Cherry Blossom Festival her store is hosting to celebrate it. Re-live sakura season at Eileen Fisher!
