MIDTOWN—The Plaza just announced that Betsey Johnson will be designing an Eloise-themed Christmas tree to go along with the Betsey Johnson pop-up shop, which opened at the hotel yesterday. On Monday, November 28 at 5pm, Eloise fans can attend a holiday-themed Tree Lighting Tea with Betsey herself at the Palm Court. The tea is open to the public, but it's not free: Adults pay $79 and kids pay $45. Reserve your space via phone at 212-546-5300 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. [Racked Inbox]
