Ladies’ Night Out in Downtown

By ladies and for ladies, the second “It’s All About You, Ladies!” event will be happening in downtown Harrisonburg next weekend! Women-owned  and -managed businesses have come together to sponsor a fun evening of wine, food, massages, beauty and hair consultations, raffle prizes, gift bags, and more!

While women are still a minority in the broader business world, Harrisonburg has a fast-growing population of savvy female entrepreneurs. “It’s All About You, Ladies” provides a valuable opportunity to meet and mingle with new additions to the community and seasoned business owners. It is a great event that allows locals, who happen to own businesses in the community, to socialize with their neighbors and build a base of awareness and support.

We were pleased that the first event was a major success, with tickets selling out well in advance. The night was filled with women relaxing, socializing, and networking! It was wonderful to see 50 women in one place become comfortable both in the space and with each other. You could feel the week’s tensions fade as people sipped their wine, got a massage, made new friends, and caught up with old ones.

All was not entirely calm, though.  A quiet excitement would fill the room any time a raffle prize was about the be announced. It was like Oscar Night. You looked at the faces of everyone that didn’t win that coveted gift certificate to RubyRed Shoe Boutique or Polished, Inc. and could tell they were trying to congratulate the winners while thinking, “I wish it had been me!”

There were delicious snacks by All Things Virginia and Shenandoah Concierge, but the biggest feedback given to the event was, “more food!”  This feedback was heeded and our second event will feature appetizers by Scrumptious Suppers! Other favorites of the night that will return are makeup and skin consultations by Vivian of Vivian’s Designer Consignor and Merle Norman Studio, talking to Linda Denton about Miche Bags, and striking a pose in the photo booth.

For the second Ladies Night Out event, only 50 tickets are being sold, so make sure you buy yours early.  Tickets sold out in advance for our first event!
