Don those stilettos and learn about climbing the corporate ladder while wearing them.

Saks Fifth Avenue and the Triangle United Way Women’s Leadership Council are sponsoring an event featuring Lynette Lewis, who wrote, “Climbing the Ladder in Stilettos.”

This takes place from 6:30 to 9 p.m. next Thursday, Feb. 19 at Saks Fifth Avenue at Triangle Town Center.

Stilettos are optional, but the evening includes wine, light hors d’oeuvres and pampering.

Too bad I have tickets to something else that night. Get this — guests of the Saks Shoe Social event will receive a 15 percent off shopping pass for that evening and you can register to win a pair of designer stilettos.

RSVP by Feb. 16 to Jo Ann Carraway at 919.463.5026 or
