QUEENS — Forest Hills fashionistas who want to enjoy Fashion's Night Out will be able to do so without leaving the neighborhood.

Jacklyn's Boutique, a clothing and accessory store located at 71-50 Austin St., will be holding an event on fashion's most famous night, complete with food and drinks.

While Austin Street's bigger chain stores are directing shoppers to Manhattan for Fashion's Night Out events, Jacklyn's will treat its customers to cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while showing off new merchandise.

"We're a little piece of Manhattan in Forest Hills," said Robbin Solo, who works at the boutique. "So we figured our customers would enjoy something like this."

Fashion's Night Out is global initiative created by Vouge, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and New York City in 2009 to celebrate fashion and treat shoppers to a night of entertainment.

FNO events, which mark the start of Fall Fashion Week, will be held in Queens at the Queens Center Mall in Woodhaven, and in Astoria and Flushing.

The night will start at Jacklyn's at 7:30 p.m. "It's going to be fun," said Solo.
