Pavilions is located at 563 Pavilions Lane, near the intersection of Fair Oaks Boulevard and Howe Avenue. Fashion's Night Out will include retailers' in-store events and promotions, shopping incentives, gourmet food trucks and entertainment by a local hip-hop dance youth group.

 "We are thrilled to bring this remarkable event back to Sacramento and invite all the fashionistas to come play at Pavilions," said Audrey Yokoto, director of marketing for Pavilions. "Last year's event was an overwhelming success and generated even more enthusiasm for this year's FNO at Pavilions." 

With over 1,500 guests in attendance, last year's event raised $15,000 for the children's hospital. Runway seats are available for $150. The price includes a complimentary $100 Pavilions gift certificate. Tickets may be purchased online at
