Opera and fashion at Neiman Marcus on March 21

Two of my favorite things in Charlotte will come together on Thursday, March 21, and I plan to be there to cover it. I hope you'll join me, although the clock is ticking to RSVP.

The Opera Guild of Charlotte, a support group of Opera Carolina, is having a luncheon featuring a fashion show of spring's best looks from Neiman Marcus. It's from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Neiman Marcus at SouthPark mall. Tickets are $40. All the proceeds go to support Opera Carolina and the Guild's young professional vocal competition awards and grants, and to further music education and interest in opera.

The official RSVP date is March 15 (yes, today, although I've been told you might still snag a spot if you RSVP by March 17 depending on space availability). You can reply by emailing

Tickets are $40; you can mail your donation to Opera Guild, P.O. Box 470132, Charlotte NC 28247.

I'm a huge fan of both opera and Neiman Marcus, so I will be there to cover the event. Please come over and say hello!

It will be the first day of spring, so I can't wait to get photographs of everyone looking fabulous on and off the runway.
