Santana Row Summer Events

San Jose, CA (June 30, 2014) – Santana Row welcomes a new shoe boutique to its lineup of stylish stores and introduces Retail Happy Hour, a weekly event that invites guests to shop and sip (responsibly!) on Wednesday evenings. The annual Fourth of July block party and sidewalk sale, a poodle parade for charity and al fresco opera are all part of the July festivities. A wine stroll, a beer walk and the monthly kids club are also planned events that encourage guests to celebrate the season at Silicon Valley’s favorite destination center.

KASH shoe boutique

A bright, light space that feels like a New York City shoe boutique, Kash carries coveted labels such as Schutz, Rebecca Minkoff, Saint & Libertine, Kelsi Dagger and Pour La Victoire.
The shop makes shoe shopping special with perks such as a complimentary espresso bar while browsing and advice from clothing designer Angelina Haole, the store’s founder who is often at the store. Soon to be offered: special memberships, including The Gentleman's Club (it's not what you think) and a monthly subscription service that includes perks such as private members-only sales, complimentary valet parking, invites to exclusive parties and freedom from paying sales tax. The store is kid-friendly with lux floor cushions and toys that are brought out to entertain children while the adults try on shoes. Located at 377 Santana Row, across from Pinkberry.
