Go Vintage With a Summer of Love Event … and More Event Ideas for June




Fifty years may have passed since the Summer of Love, but the mythology still burns, which makes this cultural touchstone a great inspiration for a summer party. Maybe a trunk show with a vintage feel, a designer inspired by earth issues? Another option: A Lucy in the Sky of Diamonds Sale. June is also the 50th anniversary of the release of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.” 

  • June 8 On the 105th anniversary of the first Ziegfield Follies, hold a fancy-dress party to mark one of Broadway’s high points. Pearls and art deco-inspired jewelry are de rigeur. 
  • June 17 Mark the 45th anniversary of Watergate by doing something conspiratorial-feeling but useful: Shred those old financial papers piled up in your study. (But check with your CPA first).
  • June 28 Chicago’s Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade, held today, is the biggest in the country. Get involved locally in activities planned to market LGBT Pride Month.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
