NEW YORK -- The Michael Kors road show continues to rack up sales.

On Friday, a trunk show at the Oval Room, the designer area of Dayton's in Minneapolis, brought in $90,000. The store said turnout was heavy, despite a heavy snowstorm the night before.

Mary Hughes, vice president and general merchandise manager for designer and bridge of Dayton's, Hudson's & Marshall Field's, said customers preferred "classic looks." The store sold 40 pairs of pants, including a slim cigarette style at $295 and classically cut pants at $335.

An Empire wool jacket sold 10 units at $495. The store also sold 14 units of a 20-inch slip skirt at $225.

According to Hughes, Friday's trunk show was the largest such event so far this season.

Last month, Kors sold $100,000 at a trunk show at Henri Bendel in Chicago.
