It was raining Crocs on 34th street where Vanessa Lachey helped kick off summer at the Crocs Grand Opening of their flagship store in New York this past week on May 15th, 2014.
The actress and TV personality looked stunning in an ivory dress, pairing them with fabulous pair of Crocs cap toe flats and a gold cursive necklace reading, “Camden.”
The day began with a ribbon cutting ceremony outside the bustling storefront where Vanessa cut the inaugural ribbon alongside Crocs executives Dan Hart (Chief Legal and Administrative Officer), Dale Bathum (Chief Product Officer), Greg Sullivan (General Manager of the Americas Region) and Mario Caruso (34th Street Store Manager). Sullivan gave an announcement to fans who gathered around the store to cheer on Crocs and welcome them to the neighborhood.
After the ribbon cutting, Vanessa continued inside where she was greeted with a Crocs cake from Carlo’s Bakery, Home of TLC’s Cake Boss, who recreated the New York store’s exclusive “I (HEART) NY” Crocs. The new mom glowed about her family when asked about them. Lachey shopped throughout the two-story retail space picking out some shoes for her family – baby Camden and husband Nick. But she spent a majority of her time at the Jibbitz bar decorating a Crocs backpack for baby Camden stating, “Camden is gonna flip when he sees all of these! They have all of his favorites – Goofy, Cars, and Batman!”
She went downstairs and browsed through their selection of over 300 different pairs where she picked up another pair of Crocs Flip Flops for husband, Nick Lachey. “He stole the black pair from one of his friends, so he’s gonna be excited when I bring these brown ones home!”
The store was open to the public and New York centric prizes were given away at every :34 of the hour including backstage Yankees tickets, helicopter rides around New York, dinner experiences, spa services and more!
