Designer Lisa Alexander recently previewed the new fall collection of Spike & Annie, her fantastically successful children’s line, at the beautiful home of friends Lindsay and George Bolton. The San Francisco-based entrepreneur and community activist donated a percentage of sales from the evening to Pets Unlimited.

The event was a lovely opportunity for friends and customers to catch up with Lisa, who has been traveling like mad due to the worldwide popularity of the line (Spike & Annie, produced in Bali, can be found in luxury stores from Palm Beach to Dubai!)
The collection is especially popular in Hollywood, worn by the children of Sarah Jessica Parker, Debra Messing, Halle Berry, Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani and many others.

The new fall/winter collection features delectable new hues including chocolate browns and slay grays, unparallel facets such as bone and wood buttons, irresistible pieces like the Shelby dress, a corduroy mini-shift dress fully lined with pocket and bow detailing, or the Francisco shirt in all-natural linen and embroidery detailing.

Sales were high at the event, which made for a nice donation to Pets Unlimited on Fillmore Street, a non-profit critical care veterinary hospitial and no-kill shelter (we like that!). Pets Unlimited Trustee/Board Members Elizabeth Touw and Jennifer Browne Snyder were at the event, along with Board President Lisa Edwards, who presented Lisa Alexander with a certificate in honor of her support.
