Chanel, Dior, and Prada in one room? What would Carrie Bradshaw do? Golden Globe-winning actress Kim Cattrall, the woman behind Samantha Jones in the upcoming Sex and the City: The Movie, suggests that city gals everywhere should shop three days straight. From May 15-17th, Cattrall, Celebrity Chair, invites shopaholics to the Lighthouse International’s POSH Designer Fashion Sale where bargains are always in.

“I have been involved with POSH for years and love the idea of fashionable philanthropy, shopping for great deals, and helping an organization at the same time,” says Cattrall, 51. In attending this year’s most exclusive event since the Barneys Warehouse Sale, you’ll be helping others see again. POSH’s proceeds will support the programs at Lighthouse International, a 103-year-old nonprofit organization that provides services for those suffering from vision loss. No shopping guilt here!

What to expect from this spending extravaganza? Designer threads, from petite to plus size, as well as shoes and accessories, are 50-80% off. Top socialites, including Joan Rivers, Countess Milly de Cabrol and Lauren Bacall have donated some of their beloved pieces. If that doesn’t convince you to grab those purses, then the Splurge Bar will. You’ll not only get the chance to score four tickets to the upcoming Yankees vs. Red Sox game, but you’ll also an exclusive interior design consultation with Katherine Stephens. Both your baseball-loving beau and gorgeous new home will thank you.

If Samantha Jones never missed a fashion show, then Cattrall won’t let New Yorkers down at POSH, where Armani, Gucci, and yes, Manolo Blahnik, will unite for the hottest sale in town.
