My favorite scene from The Wedding Singer is when Drew Barrymore’s character is auditioning a wedding singer for her upcoming nuptials since Adam Sandler’s character recently retired from the wedding singer profession due to a broken heart. The man viewers see auditioning? An extremely sleazy Jon Lovitz crooning Ladies Night, crudely inappropriate for a wedding audition, but dreadfully appropriate for comedic purposes.
How does Jon Lovitz’s slimy rendition of Ladies Night relate to shopping? Actually, it doesn’t, but whenever I see a Ladies Night advertised Mr. Lovitz’s seedy version of Kool and The Gang’s 1979 jam gets stuck in my head. So when I saw San Mateo’s Lulu Boutique advertising Ladies Night Out every first Wednesday of the month I immediately thought of Jon Lovitz. Fortunately the other aspects of Lulu’s Boutique droned out the crooning of one of the most infamous Saturday Night Live cast members.
New co-owner, Jamie Sears, has no affiliation with the slimy and seedy Mr. Lovitz. Instead she’s taken the helm of a formerly denim focused boutique and turned it into a pleasant mish-mash of vintage and contemporary trends, as well as high-end denim. The former Barney’s New York buyer has her finger on the pulse of fashion.
Now combine all those designers, plus more, and a glass of wine or a cocktail of your choice on a Wednesday night, and I assure you’ll leave Lulu with a few other things than an old funk hit echoing through your brain!
