   Nanette Lepore is a beautiful ultra-chic clothing store decorated with birdcages, hanging white chandeliers, and pink wooden floors. The fancy boutique sells women’s wear, jewelry, handbags, and shoes. The designer collections are not the ordinary selection but frilly finds with lace and ruffles and very feminine pieces that have attracted a celebrity following such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Uma Thurman and Drew Barrymore. The Nanette Lepore collection is also popular with television and film stylists and was featured on Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde 2, Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City, and on Jennifer Garner in 13 Going on 30. If you are looking for a unique embroidered coat you’ll find it here. The store sells A-line skirts in every color as well as a selection of bath and body products. I recommend picking up a bottle of Nanette Lepore’s classic Eau de Parfum Spray. It comes in such a pretty pink bottle and the sweet rose floral smell is so nice and light. I get the fragrance in the hand cream too. The store has two annual sales to mark your calendar for, one post summer, one post winter. The Nanette Lepore collection can also be found at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and most upscale department stores.
   Nanette Lepore is open Mon thru Sat, 11am-7pm and Sun from noon-6pm.

   Celine Dion, the French-Canadian diva, will be performing two concert dates at Madison Square Garden on September 15th and 16th, 2008 as part of her Taking Chances World Tour 2008. Originally scheduled for only one show at the Garden, a second concert date had to be added by overwhelming demand for the popular songbird. Celine Dion’s latest album, Taking Chances, is a wonderful collection of 16 new songs that breaks away from her usual repertoire but still showcases her powerful vocal range. Both shows are scheduled for 8:00 PM with ticket prices ranging from $59.50 to $189.50. and may be purchased online at Madison Square Garden.
   Celine Dion puts on a great show, giving her audiences a mix of storytelling to her thrilling soaring hits to several encores. She appreciates her fans and gives her audiences an over-the-top show. She performs all of the hits you want to hear and more.
