Escape: Red, White and Blue is Always In Fashion

Support the troops while catching up on winter's coming trends at North Shore Music Theatre on Monday night.

It's all too easy to forget the true meaning behind Veterans Day when it also represents a day off from school, perhaps a day off from work and, this year, a long weekend. Allow us to make a recommendation for how you can honor those who serve our country while also treating yourself to a night away from the same old-same old.

On Monday, Nov. 7, the storied North Shore Music Theatre is hosting Runway U.S.A.: Celebrating Women in Uniform. Fifty dollars will get you access to a very tasty-sounding food sampling (everything from clams to cakes) and a fashion show — and it will give troops serving our country access to a lot more support, through organizations like the USO and Operation Troop Support.

The details: The pre-show reception (alert: this is when food will be served; be there or be hungry) runs from 6-8 p.m. in various parts of the theater and will include a number of raffles and boutique-y browsing. Then the Tribute to Our Troops fashion show itself, put on by Lorraine Roy Designer Collections of Danvers (think gowns, with some casual holiday chic), will begin, featuring a performance by up-and-coming country singer and Boston native Kiley Evans. (We think her new single, "Johnny Depp," is kind of catchy.)

Of course, you could go the VIP route, where a ticket costs you $100 but gets you a seat in the first four rows and (wait for it) entrance to a post-show dessert reception. Something to think about.

But don't think too long—seats have been selling fast. (Visit the North Shore Music Theatre's website to purchase tickets, or call 978-232-7200 for more information.) Whatever ticket you decide on, don't forget to bring socks: For every three new pairs (men's or women's) you bring to the theater, you'll get a free raffle ticket.

Really, there's no downside to this one.
