The coincidence that is Mar 10 is all they need to throw a pretty good party each year at Mario’s.
Get it? Mar 10 = Mario.
The shop becomes a bit carnival-like when the wheel of fortune moves in, and customers who have spent $200 or more get to take a spin. (Note: You have until the 10th to spend those 200 bucks, and when you do, you’ll get ten percent off.) Prizes are added all day so depending on when you drop in, you might be spinning for the Manolo Blahnik heels of your choice (up to $745), an Oscar de la Renta Ikat clutch, Etro scarf, or Brunello Cucinelli piece (up to $750).
Men, you’ll spin for a Zegna sport coat, John Varvatos shoes (up to $365), Canali suit, and other similar, stellar items.
But it’s not just about you. Or Mario’s. Or even celebrating coincidences.
Raffle tickets will also be available; 100% of the proceeds from those sales (one ticket goes for $10, or buy three for $25) goes to Children’s Healing Art Project and Coyote Central. The former uses art to help kids in crisis, the latter lets junior-high youth discover their inner creative spirits.
Raffle prizes are no joke (errr—-what was that I said about this not being about you?): Score a Lanvin item (up to $1000), Irene Neuwirth earrings, an Isaia Aqua Spider suit, or something equally as incredible.
The only question is, are you feeling lucky?
