Come this Tuesday night (November 15th), the men and women around Little Traverse Bay will be headed their separate ways; while the guys load up their camo and head to the woods, the ladies can be found at the annual Ladies’ Night Out in Harbor Springs! This is a record year with over thirty stores opening their doors where ladies can enjoy discounts, refreshments, and a festive night on the town.
Ladies’ Night Out is a grass-roots effort organized by merchants to showcase what Harbor Springs has to offer in the off-season, to encourage locals to shop locally, and to celebrate the uniqueness of our small town. As Molly Baker, owner of The Outfitter explains: “Ladies’ Night Out has become a super-fun tradition to get out with friends and celebrate our one-of-a-kind downtown. Enjoy dinner/drinks and shop small in locally-owned stores you may have never discovered before.”
There is much to celebrate; instead of fighting the crowds at generic big box stores, ladies can come find a huge range of specialty gifts as well as functional items from jewelry, art and hand-blown glass, to boutique clothing and skiwear, to home decor, kitchenware, books, maps, cookies, toys and more!
Martha Bowman, a Harbor Springs resident, loves the annual event and said, “It’s a fun night to come out with the girls to shop and eat. Ladies Night includes three of my favorite things: food, shopping, and Harbor Springs!”
Dinner specials will be offered at local restaurants including Bar Harbor, The New York, Stafford’s Pier, The Paper Station, and Turkey’s Cafe and Pizzeria.
If ladies make purchases in three or more stores, they are entered to win a some great raffle items from Elizabeth Blair Fine Pearls, Polished on Main, The Pier, Cheeky Z, Yoga Roots, & Journey North.
