Super Saturday, QVC’s annual mega sale in the Hamptons — where all net proceeds benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund — was in full effect today, and we were, once again, thrilled to be a part of it!
Not only do the proceeds from the sale go to the OCRF, but those of you who couldn’t participate in person, can help generate funds by pinning. Yes, pinning. If you’ve got a Pinterest account, then you’ve got the means to help fight ovarian cancer. Every time the image below is repinned, QVC will donate $.50 to Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, up to $5,000.
Get pinning tartelettes!
During the summer the Hamptons are filled with high-profile bashes, but nothing beats a mid-afternoon shopping soirée with ALL proceeds going to charity. This past weekend marked the annual Super Saturday 13 event at Nova’s Ark Project in Water Mill, N.Y. (South Hampton). This giant, outdoor sample sale has rows of incredible designers & generous sponsors all supporting an amazing foundation: The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. tarte was honored to be back for our 7th year; but don’t let us fool you it’s not ALL work and no play. At some points throughout the day Maureen, Candace, Leigh & I enjoyed shopping along with the massive crowds! Although, I picked-up some great buys from kooba, J Brand, DVF & others I fully enjoyed celeb spotting some fab fashionistas like Kelly Ripa, Ashley Greene, Rachel Zoe & the Kardashian sisters! Despite 90-degree temperatures, they all looked fabulous.
In addition to the designer booths, brands and celebrities also have the opportunity to sell their products live on QVC. As the Broadcast Sponsor, The Q was able to promote Super Saturday 13 nationwide. So even if you couldn’t attend the event, you could still help support the cause! Both the sales of the live broadcast and qvc.com (during that time slot) benefit OCRF. In just 3 minutes tarte’s CEO/Founder Maureen Kelly sold over 2,500 be good to your mother (Earth) natural cotton totes and 24.7 lip sheer sets! And that’s just a snapshot of the amazing charitable contributions we made that day!
After everyone hit the cashier stands and collected all of their fabulous buys, the OCRF is proudly reported that Super Saturday 13 raised a total of $3.4 million dollars for the foundation in just 1 day! I’d have to say it’s the best shopping trip I’ve experienced; every penny is well spent and I have zero buyer’s remorse! Good news: Super Saturday isn’t just for socialites and celebs. Anyone can go—so next year be sure to visit OCRF’s website and buy a ticket. We hope to see you there!
