What would you give to have lunch with Jenna Lyons?
Charity auction site charitybuzz, which raises funds for nonprofits around the world through online auctions involving celebrities and luxury brands, is now accepting bids on the ultimate J.Crew experience. The winner will get the chance to tour the brand's New York City offices, go behind the scenes of a photo shoot, and--here's the real prize--have lunch with President and Executive Creative Director Jenna Lyons. It's no secret that Lyons is a favorite in the fashion world and one of the most influential people in it, so this really would be the opportunity of a lifetime.
Of course, such a dream date doesn't come without stipulations: The prize's legal terms insist that the meeting with Lyons cannot exceed 1 hour, and "every effort will be made to schedule this experience at the earliest possible date," but it might take a year. But hey, living the dream takes patience.
The current bid is a mere $1,600, but according to charitybuzz the experience is valued at $10,000 and there are still seven days left to bid, so things are bound to heat up soon. Proceeds of the auction will benefit IS 289 Hudson River Middle School. It's a win-win.
