Arizona holds a special place in our hearts. I remember renting our huge white van to haul all of our gear to IBC. Waking up while it was still dark to start our drive across the desert, being pulled over by the fuzz for speeding across said desert and then IBC (I think there is an IG post out there somewhere documenting this moment). Where do I even begin? Needless to say, Arizona is indeed a remarkable place and we are so excited to be returning. I still don't know what a sundevil is.

Will there be an after party/evening of celebration?
If Pavotees would like to have an after party / evening of celebration, they are welcome to do so! Unfortunately, we are typically unable to attend as we are obligated to close out the event, take care of inventory, accounting and other routine chores, but we will do our best to make time for our Pavotees after the event.
Will I need to stalk for tickets? Will they sell out?
Unfortunately, we do not know the answer to this question. Our tickets for Pavo Presents Florida did not sell out, but our tickets for Pavo Presents Asheville sold out right away!
What will be the exclusive VIP wrap for the Pavo Presents Arizona?
The VIPavotee wrap for Arizona will be Aerie Ink, an brilliant new addition to our much anticipated quilt series.
What other wraps will be available?
We will also have Tippi Spearmint, Ombré Gotham Pluot, Swallowtail Zaffre and an exciting new Hearts! Arizona will have a fantastic mix of Pavo classics and new designs.
Is the space baby proofed and mobile baby safe?
No. Please be aware of your children and keep a close eye on them at all times as you would do in any public space.
Should we bring snacks?
The event will be catered by the lovely staff at Biltmore Phoenix. Please note that neither the food nor the space are not allergen-free. We do our very best to accommodate a wide variety of food preferences, but please be aware that we might not be able to make changes based on your food requirements.
Does your wrappee have to be worn or may s/he come on the loose?
The ticket price allows entry for the attendee and one wrappee, three years old and younger. You may either wear your wrappee or your child may be mobile. Please be aware of your child's location at all times. The venue at Biltmore Phoenix is not child proofed and will not be fully childproofed in any reasonable manner.
Any child over three years of age will need a general admissions ticket for the trunk show.
Will I have to pay sales tax?
Yes. We are required to charge sales tax on all purchases made at the Pavo Presents Arizona. Phoenix sales tax is 8.6%.
May I purchase more than one VIP ticket if stalking for myself and a friend?
If you are stalking for a friend, you should put your friend's name on the ticket during checkout.
I am flying from out of state to attend the trunk show. I’m worried that tickets will sell out. What do I do?
If you are flying in from out of state and all tickets are sold out (VIPavotee and GA), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may help you out.
I’m nervous about attending the trunk show. What can I expect?
Historically, trunk shows have been small intimate events that allow a designer to meet and talk with their customers. Our trunk shows have proven to be a bit larger, but Erin and I work very hard to make sure that they still retain an intimate feel. There will be food and drink, mingling, most likely waiting in line to purchase wraps (we implemented a new system at the holiday party such that people would not have to wait in line, but would still have the opportunity to buy the wraps they wanted, but found people still wanted to wait in line), the historic setting at the Biltmore and many fellow Pavotees who can geek out with you about your Pavos. We look forward to meeting everyone! If you are worried about the trunk show experience, join us in Pavo Customer Appreciation, where we and past trunk show attendees can personally answer your questions.
