Neiman Marcus dresses up in gold and pink for Mary Kay's 50th

DALLAS — Neiman Marcus is getting set to deck its flagship downtown Dallas location in gold and pink to celebrate beauty brand Mary Kay's 50th anniversary.

Known for its high fashion window displays, Neiman Marcus — which is headquartered in Dallas — has dedicated four of its windows to the brand's milestone and to its founder, Mary Kay Ash.

“From one great Dallas based institution to another, Neiman Marcus salutes Mary Kay on its 50th anniversary. Congratulations,” said Jeffrey Byron, VP and GM for Neiman Marcus Downtown.

Neiman Marcus also pays tribute to Mary Kay inside the store with a pink-themed display featuring a collection of hand-selected designer clothing and accessories in pink and gold, including apparel, shoes, handbags and jewelry. Anchoring the display is the signature symbol of achievement for Mary Kay independent beauty consultants: a 2013 Cadillac CTS in custom Mary Kay pink.

“It is an honor to have Neiman Marcus join us as we celebrate Mary Kay’s golden anniversary,” said Sheryl Adkins-Green, CMO for Mary Kay Inc. “We encourage everyone, including the nearly 50,000 Mary Kay independent sales force members who will be in Dallas for Mary Kay’s Seminar, to visit Neiman Marcus and see the beautiful displays that have been designed for Mary Kay, and shop the pink pop-up collection.”

Mary Kay is hosting its annual convention, known as Seminar, in Dallas from July 21 through Aug. 7, which celebrates the success of the company’s independent sales force. Seminar is focused on recognizing Mary Kay independent beauty consultants for their achievements while also providing education, inspiration and motivation for the year ahead. This year’s Seminar theme is “One Woman Can.”

Mary Kay’s first Seminar in 1964 was held in the company’s first warehouse where 200 attendees dined on chicken cooked by Mary Kay Ash herself. This year, nearly 50,000 people will attend the event at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas.

With 3 million Mary Kay independent beauty consultants and $3 billion in global annual wholesale sales, Mary Kay is a top beauty brand and direct seller in more than 35 markets around the world.
