ANN TAYLOR EVERYWHERE — Gentlemen, if you're stumped on what to get your mothers or girlfriends for Christmas, then this event is a godsend. Ask the special ladies in your lives to make wish lists online or in-store, and then go to your nearest Ann Taylor on December 19 from 6-8p.m. to have the store's stylists help you check things off. Best of all, there are complimentary cocktails, gifts and the chance to win a trip to Vegas. Looks like everybody is on Ann Taylor's nice list. [Miami.com]
