Calling all the wonderful ladies of Mount Vernon to a night that promises to be anything but unforgettable, a Ladies Night Out Sip and Shop.

Wine, cocktails, tiny beautiful food artworks distributed on trays, mouth-watering desserts… does this sound like the sort of luxury you’ve been in need of? If so, you need to attend the Ladies Night Out Sip and Shop this coming week on the 8th of November.

What to Expect

Whether we express it or not, we are all too familiar with that feeling of sheer accomplishment at finding a really good deal. Well, how about a special evening devoted to great deals just in time for a little pre-festive season shopping?

Head over to the Ladies Night where you can sample an array of ciders, beer, and Washington wines from various stores. Watch in awe as some of your favorite, “strictly window-shopping” stores offer up fantastic specials. End off your evening with a visit to the Pop-Up Wine Shop where you are sure to find a wine to your taste.

In a display of community, everyone comes together as business hours roll over after hours to help create an evening of festivities. If you know anything about the people of Mount Vernon, you’ll know that we love our neighborhood and treasure the role each individual plays towards re-energizing local business economies. Community is all about uplifting and helping one another.

Seize the opportunity to stretch your festive season budget even further by shopping all of the great deals offered by participating outlets on the evening.

For those who finish work early, grab yourself a VIP ticket and join in on the Happy Hour happening between 4-5 pm on the day. This will be hosted by the Valley Financial Group who has so generously sponsored this year’s event.

Why Go

There is nothing better than sitting and giggling around a table with a group of friends you can absolutely be yourself with. Pair that with a good glass of merlot, or a cosmopolitan if you’re really in the mood, and you are all set to go!

According to one board member of Main Street Mount Vernon, “The participating downtown businesses go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed, pampered, and have a wonderful time.”

Who Will Be There

We thought we’d give you a little bit of background on some of the businesses involved in this event. You can stop to appreciate some art among aromas of freshly baked bread in a Parisian-styled gallery at the Coleman Gallery and Galerie Suite.

Should you decide that walking is far too much effort for the heeled-individuals of your group, you could always just hop into a limo for a complimentary ride around the town sponsored by The Grand Hotel and Knox Community Hospital.

These are just a few highlights of what’s on offer. Some of the other businesses that will be featured include:

  • Amato’s Woodfired Pizza
  • Crickets on S. Main
  • Kudos Artist Co-op
  • The Makery
  • Makers Market
  • Moss Rose
  • Newly Organic Apothecary
  • Paragraphs Bookstore
  • Williams Flower Shop.
