In an effort to strengthen the retail landscape of the Newark business community, Cabral Miller, owner of St. James & Co (, stepped outside of the box, along with Gentleman Culture, and transformed his storefront into “The Luxe Lounge” on February 12, for A Valentine’s affair.

During the four-hour event, DJ Just Love’s music filled the air of the men’s accessories and apparel boutique. Patrons shopped, sipped champagne, and enjoyed light refreshments all while exchanging pleasantries with area movers and shakers.

There were also surprise giveaways – including a gift basket and Marc Anthony concert tickets.
