The holidays are coming at us fast. One second it’s all spooky Halloween and in the blink of an eye, it’s jingle bells and holly.
While I personally find the quick switch a little jarring, I’m no Grinch. I love the holidays and one event that never fails to get me in the spirit is the St. Matthews and Chenoweth Square Holiday Walk. Hosted annually, it’s a night where all the shops deck the halls with holiday cheer, serve up wine and stay open late for you to browse and shop. This year’s event is this Friday, November 8th from 6 – 9 pm.
St. Matthews + Chenoweth Square Holiday Walks
November 8 from 6 – 9 pm
It’s traditionally one of my favorite girls nights. We all meet up, do a little shopping and then cap things off with dinner and, of course, more wine.
If you’re looking for holiday decor inspiration, make sure to go through Colonial Designs. Their decor is always gorgeous and styles that range from traditional to more unique and colorful. It’s always one of my favorites.
You can also swing into Papersource for holiday cards and the most festive wrapping paper. Or get in the tropical holiday spirit at Peppermint Palm, a great time to grab a gift for the Lilly loving lady on your list (say that five times fast).
Over in Chenoweth Square, Digs Home + Garden will certainly be decked out and will give you some ideas on how to add a touch of holiday cheer to your patio. The gals at Primp Style Lounge will certainly be serving up a little wine and you can buy blow-out gift cards for all the hard to shop for ladies on your list. A blow-out makes such a good gift for a teacher, babysitter, new mom, co-worker or really any lady you know with hair.
Grab something cozy at Bedded Bliss and swing into B.You to get a head start on your New Year’s fitness. I’m guessing they’ll have some deals for new members. Chenoweth Square also has some great clothes shopping – I love J. McLaughlin and Merci Boutique always has cute things for gals of all ages.
Make plans to get out and support our local businesses this Friday. Going to get on my soap box really quickly. Lately, I’ve noticed there have been some great local spots close their doors in this area and it’s a shame. Remember that local businesses are owned by your neighbors and money you spend with them goes directly back into your community. These local businesses are what make our city so special, so commit to shopping local this holiday season, starting with the holiday walk!
