By  April 22, 2009
Tommy Hilfiger and iPod

Get your retail expertise ready this Saturday and Sunday (April 25th and 26th) at Tommy Hilfiger’s exclusive iPod shopping extravaganza. The store event will be in SoHo at W. Broadway and Broome; get there bright and early because iPods will be given out to some very lucky shoppers. Here’s the scoop. The first 50 customers to spend $100 will be given a $15 iTunes gift card. Hurray! The first 25 people to drop $150 will receive an iPod Shuffle. Even better but watch out for the elbows. If you’re one of the first 25 shoppers to spend over $300, you’ll be given an iPod Nano which is just in time for Mother’s Day. And the best of all? The first 5 customers to put down over $500 will receive an iPod Touch. Gasp! Doors open at 11. Dust off your credit cards ladies. It’s time to shop.

Walk up to the fourth floor of The Metropolitan Pavilion on 18th Street (between 6th and 7th Ave.) in NYC. You’ll be in shoe heaven. Are you sitting down? Stunning stilettos start at only $75.
