Surfboard Holiday Tree Collaboration and Celebration with Iris Apfel

Dec 01 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Since 2018, The Royal has partnered with incredible artists annually to create designs for our iconic holiday surfboard tree, and this year’s collaboration won’t be easy to top. Artists of surfboard holiday trees’ past include Donald Robertson (Drawbertson), Gray Malin, Ashley Longhore, and Johnson Hartig for Libertine.

We are beyond elated and honored to partner with the world’s oldest teenager, centenarian, and style maven– IRIS APFEL!

The Royal will celebrate the reveal and lighting of Iris’s elegantly over-the-top surfboard tree on Thursday, December 1 from 6 to 8 p.m.!

In the spirit of Iris, who believes that the best part of any occasion is getting dressed, we encourage you to attend our highly anticipated event, dressed like maximalists…dressed like Iris! Participating retailers will have clothing and accessories that emulate the icon’s style, merchandised specifically for this collaboration and available to shop in advance of December 1.  Click the image below for our “Dress Like Iris” participating retailers, and visit us to shop for bold colors, trending denim, feathers, and playful accessories.



Mark your calendars now for a night of bubbles, bites, and beats. Plus, enjoy fashion presentations, children’s activities, a visit from Santa himself, and delightful surprises. We look forward to seeing you in our courtyards donning oversized glasses, stacks-on-stacks of jewelry, and embellishments galore…all in the spirit of Iris Apfel and our magical holiday season.
