Vision Care, Style and Made-In-Michigan Products, Business and Services Come Together at Festival in Downtown Northville

It’s official (even if it’s a little last minute): Urban Optiques has signed on as an event sponsor for the 2nd Annual “BuyBuy Michigan Now Logo Michigan Now” Festival in Downtown Northville August 6th – 8th.

The three day festival will feature sidewalk sales, live music, children’s activities, a health fair, fashion shows and plenty of Michigan-based businesses and Michigan-made products.

Urban Optiques will be actively participating during two of the three days of the festival:  On Friday August 6th we’ll be providing free vision screenings from 10 am to 5 pm to festival attendees as part of Blue Cross Blue Shield’s day-long Health Fair.

Then on Sunday we’ll be sponsoring and participating in “Style Sunday” which showcases made-in-Michigan fashion,Evening Wear by Katerina Bocci Designs jewelry and accessories. The day includes fashion shows from renowned Michigan designers Katerina Bocci, Project Runway finalist and co-creator of Fashion in Detroit Joe Faris, and designer Cynthia LaMaide.  We’ll be on hand at the events showing the latest in trends and styles in eyewear and sunwear.

We’re particularly excited about this sponsorship because it lets us emphasize two different parts of Urban Optiques that we think make us unique: Our focus on full scope vision care for life (helping you see) as well as stocking the area’s largest collection of premium-quality boutique and couture eyewear that get you seen.

Why “Buy Michigan Now?”

The “Buy Michigan Now” movement, spearheaded by Lisa Diggs, challenges Michigan residents and supporters of the state to factor Michigan into their daily buying decisions.  In other words, whenever possible, buy locally. Whether that’s products manufactured, grown or distributed by Michigan companies, or services provided by Michigan businesses (like Urban Optiques, for instance), the idea here is to jump start and grow the local economy by supporting businesses that keep the dollars in the state.

Check Out the Urban Optiques Team “Modeling” The Ultra-Lux FRED-Paris Eyewear at our FRED Cocktail Party and Trunk Show!

It’s not often that you get to wear a pair of $18,000 eyeglasses for an entire evening, but that’s exactly what we where able to do during Saturday’s FRED Cocktail Party and Trunk Show at Urban Optiques.Fred Prestige Collection Lunettes and Sunglasses

We snapped some random pictures of the team during the show wearing some of the most exquisite eyewear on the planet, thanks to Deborah Signorello, the National Sales Manager for Premiere Vision.

Premiere Vision is the distributor of both Tag Heuer and the FRED luxury eyewear collection, and Deborah helped us put on an amazing event last Saturday night.

It was our first show with FRED since buying the practice, but it definitely won’t be our last.

For those of you who attended, we thank you.

For those who couldn’t stop in, you missed something really special.

But there will be more chances in the future.

Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway Sizzle in this Sexy Classic Heist Film at the Marquis Theatre Sponsored by Urban Optiques, Tom Holzer Ford and Starring the Gallery

The “King of Cool” makes a return to the big screen tomorrow night in “The Thomas Crown Affair” — the latest of eleven classic films Urban Optiques is sponsoring during the “Movies at the Marquis Classic Film Series” at the historic Marquis Theatre in downtown Northville.

For generations who don’t know who Steve McQueen is, we’ll fill you in quickly.

But before we do this, check out these great clips from The Thomas Crown Affair, showing tomorrow night at the Marquis Theatre:

McQueen’s life had all of the marks of either a disaster or a major success story.

His father was a barnstorming stunt pilot and his mother was young, rebellious, alcoholic. McQueen’s mom left him at the doorstep of his grandparents, and for much of his youth, he bounced between stability and chaos. Eventually he wound up in a reform school, where he straightened up his act, became a leader and eventually moved on to take acting lessons.
