UNION SQAURE—The Fifth Avenue Free People store got themselves a makeover and they want you to come by and check it out Thursday from 6 to 9pm. In the name of new beginnings, the event kicks off with a champagne toast, followed by wine and sweets. If all that imbibing proves to be too much, they're having a raffle for a three day Nektar cleanse. To give your look a fresh start, Aveda will be on hand with makeup and hair styling, and the first 50 customers will walk away with a free nail polish set—we'll raise a glass to that. Be sure to RSVP. [RackedWire]

Let them know you're coming by RSVPing on Facebook. [RackedWire]
