HSN unveiled its holiday-season programming lineup Wednesday, and the debuts will include a makeup line by ex-model/TV personality Tyra Banks — as well as a Rolling Stones-themed fashion collection and “Happy” the HSN holiday bear.
On Nov. 7 from 10 p.m. to midnight, Banks, will launch her new TYRA beauty makeup collection during “Tyra’s Makeup Fierce Up,” a two-hour primetime special.
There will also be another debut, that of TV chef and host of his own cooking show, Robert Irvine. He will launch his line of culinary tools and accessories during the “HSN Cooks” event Nov. 2.
And in a new idea, HSN will celebrate more than 50 years of The Rolling Stones Nov. 13 with a first-ever fashion collection featuring Mick Jagger and Keith Richards’ legendary lyrics, designed by Diane Gilman, R.J.Graziano, Carlos Falchi and Lyric Culture.
And there will be several memorable returning vendors at HSN. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of “Jersey Shore” fame will be back at the home shopping network. Snooki, by the way, will soon be getting married and having her wedding reception at The Venetian in Garfield, N.J. — the same venue where our friend Patty’s nephew had his post-nuptial shindig.
And one of our favs, four-time Grammy Award-winner and Nicole Kidman hubby Keith Urban, will celebrate his first anniversary with HSN with the launch of his limited edition “Star Fire” 22-Piece Guitar Package Nov. 15.
In a new gimmick, HSN will be hosting special Black Fridays on Nov. 7, 14 and 21.
They will be:
* Nov. 7 – A “Bundles at their Best” themed day offers shoppers the opportunity to buy featured bundled items, BOGOs, and Bonus Buys.
* Nov. 14 – With themes like “Basics with a Flair” and “What’s Old is New Again,” shoppers can take a trip down memory lane with nostalgic throwback pieces and gift ideas from home, electronics and more.
* Nov. 21 – Shoppers get full access to a day of “Stocking Stuffers” with gifts under $100, $50 and $25. And 10,000 customers will receive a complimentary holiday stocking when purchasing special stocking stuffer qualifying items throughout the day.
On Thanksgiving Day, “Happy” the HSN Holiday Bear will make its debut, with HSN donating 1,000 bears to charity for the first 1,000 bears sold.
Later that night through Black Friday, HSN will offer “doorbuster” bargains ranging from name brand electronics to handbags and jewelry.
