Louisville + Events: Holiday Walking Around Town

In my personal opinion, people hop on the Christmas train WAY too quick after Halloween. Your candy’s not even half gone before it’s all Christmas trees and jingle bells every where you go. But there is one early holiday fun that I have no trouble getting behind (it’s the hypocrite in me) and that’s the local Holiday walks. They’re always a good excuse to get together with friends and do a little sipping, strolling and shopping.

This Friday, November 7th,  two Louisville neighborhoods are bringing out the holly for their annual Holiday Walks/Open House – St. Matthews and Nulu. Both promise stores decorated and open late with the possibility of sales, wine and apps aka all things that are good. Get all the details below and consider your Friday night plans made.

St. Matthews Holiday Walk - All of your favorite shops will be open late and some will be offering deals. One of my personal favorites, Dandelion, will be offering an extra 15% off to their Dandelist members (sign up, it’s free and awesome). You’ll definitely want to stop into Colonial Designs to get some major holiday decorating inspiration (here’s a look at year’s past) and you can stop into Blink, Clodhoppers or Blink to snag the perfect dress for any upcoming holiday parties.

I’ll be out there on Friday and hope to see some of you all there too.

 

Nulu Open House + First Friday Trolley Hop: This is a great combo. Holiday fun + the best way to spend the first Friday of the month. Hop on a trolley and jump off at any of the 50+ boutiques that will be open late for the monthly event. Riding the trolley is free, fun and will have drop off points all along the Main/Market Street corridor and South 4th Street (a great chance to check out the shops there).

As an extra bonus to this month’s First Friday Hop, the South Fourth Street retailers are hosting their 2nd annual “Day of the Dead” event, celebrating Mexico’s most famous holiday, between the Seelbach and Brown Hotels during normal hop hours on Friday, November 7th, from 5:00 PM – 11:00 PM. So see we’re not jumping head first into Christmas JUST yet.

Pop into the Why Louisville store for unique (and super comfy) Louisville-themed tees – a great gift for that friend or family member living away from home; head into Scout for amazing jewelry and crazy, cool home goods; and you better get a cookie at Please & Thank You. And while you’re at it, get one for me. No, but really, it’s a must.

 

Louisville + Events: Save the Date – Blink Denim Style Event

Louisville gals – save the date. On September 10th, Miranda {The Chic Street} and I are teaming up for a night of shopping, cocktails and more at Blink boutique (3706 Lexington Road). If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of denim – stop by and try on styles from Hudson, Joie, Paige, Dylan & George, 1921 and more.

We’ll both be on hand, along with the always helpful Blink gals, to help you find the most flattering pair for fall. If you’re ot looking for a new pair of jeans (you’re a better person than me, like the every elusive perfect white t-shirt, I’m always on the hunt for great jeans), stop by for a drink, try on a couple new ‘fits (they’ve got tons of Joie, Vince and Rails options) for fall or get your makeup done by Zen Skyn. There will also be door prizes and gift bags. All in all, a great way to spend a random Wednesday night.

Hope to see you there!

Style Spotting + Events: Forecastle Festival 2014

Admittedly today’s post is less of a style spotting and more of a fun round-up of Forecastle Festival shenanigans. I only made it to the Waterfront on Friday and totally forgot my camera but thanks to some friends & readers, I’ve got a look at some of the good times (and good outfits) that went down this weekend.

If you were at Forecastle and want to add your pics to this round-up, just send ‘em over to me at danielle@louwhatwear.com
