Boerne Diva Night is NEXT WEEK: Get the Inside Scoop HERE!

Boerne Diva Night is NEXT WEEK: Get the Inside Scoop HERE!

First let’s get this very important part taken care of:

Who: Tons of participating shops on (and near) the Hill Country Mile and YOU!
What: Fall Diva Night, 2017
When: Thursday, November 9th, 5:00-9:00pm
Where: Downtown Boerne
Why: To HAVE FUN, socialize, and shop!

You guys, I am so excited to be able to make it to Boerne Diva Night this year!  This is an event hosted by local Boerne businesses, twice a year, in the fall and spring.  The fall event is extra special because guess what?  Halloween is OVER!  Most of the shops have already worked hard to put out their Christmas best and there’s just nothing like Main Street when it’s all decked out for the holidays.  You can start your evening either at the North end of Main Street (at The Dienger Trading Co.) or the South end (at The Flower Shop).  The first 200 shoppers at both starting locations will receive, of course, their tiara and feather boa (because what would a Diva Night be without a bit of bling, right?), swag bag, and a list of participating Boerne retailers (there are 30 this year!).  The evening will be full of music, giveaways, appetizers, and drinks so grab your girlfriends and head on out.  It’s a free event, so how much you spend is totally up to you.  I personally, have made a commitment to do 75% of my Christmas shopping locally in Boerne (more if I can manage it!), so this will be the kickoff to a super fun holiday shopping season for our family! 

Now for the good part: you know that if I am going to write a post about Diva Night that I just HAVE to reach out to some of the lovely ladies on The Mile for the inside scoop, right?  So here’s who I spoke with and what they had to say about what’s going on at their shops for Diva Night:

Mary Pat, The Flower Shop: “The Flower Shop is the southern registration and pick up point for your Diva Night essentials.  There will be discounts throughout the whole store and multiple vendors/retailers set up outside for a parking lot sale.  We’ll also have a DJ, mimosas, finger food, and giveaways every 30 minutes!"

Michelle, The Dienger Trading Co.: “We are the northern registration and goodies pick up location and we’ll also be doing a raffle for a pair of Kendra Scott earrings!”

Lila, Hunting & Gathering for the Home: “We are so excited to have DJ Cathy Garrett providing entertainment and our friend Santa Claus posing for selfies with us for Diva Night.  We have decorated for a country Christmas and brought back our most popular Christmas gift from last year; the Alpine Village Advent Calendar.  Come join us for some delicious German dessert wine, treats, and 20% off any single item.  Can’t wait to see you there!”

Wendy, Traditions at the Depot"We will be serving champagne, finger foods, and having giveaways.  We will also have a drawing for a great prize and special "Diva Deals" just for you!  Also, a Brighton rep will be here with new Brighton handbags, jewelry and gifts for our Divas to order from!"

Michelle, Dang Sassy:  “We are doing monograms and mimosas so anything purchased in-store that evening will be monogrammed at no cost!  Come take a look!”

Brandi, Pixie: “Pixie will have a super fun selfie station so ladies can take photos with their friends to remember the evening.  We will be offering a yummy “giggle juice” cocktail as well as other treats throughout the evening.  Be on the lookout for Pixie’s strolling divas who will be handing out fliers to enter for a chance to win gift certificates to both Pixie and La Te Da!”

Brandi, La Te Da: “We will have a darling ukulele player in front of the shop to entertain.  We will also be offering our amazing spiced red wine and other treats.  Keep an eye out for those strolling divas with the fliers to enter the gift certificate drawing!”

Emily, The Christmas Shoppe: "Join us for snacks and epic fun with our selfie station and karaoke machine!  Be sure to follow us on Facebook for a special Diva Night coupon good for that night only!"

Reagan, The Pearl Antler: “We will have live music by Clint Tomerlin, drinks, and snacks.  We’ve got a special giveaway for the first ten purchases; a leather Hannah Tote (retail, $137)!  We’ll have lots of new items just waiting for our Boerne Divas…cannot wait to see you all!”

Melissa, Texas Gourmet Pantry: “We will have many of our products available for sampling, including dips, salsas, Wine-A-Rita’s, award-winning chili, and much more.  We’ll have discounts throughout the store with some items marked 50% off and a special on our dip mixes, 3 for $10.00!”

Debbie, The Victorian Rose: “We have custom koozies for the first 100 shoppers in the store.  We’ll have 15% off coupons (while they last) and a drawing for a $100 gift certificate!  We’ll also have Tootie Pie Co. with us with some of their yummy delights and they’re offering discounts as well!”  

Amy, From Scratch Farm: “As a newbie to Main Street, I am really excited for From Scratch Farm to be participating in Diva Night for the first time!  We will have a comfy lounge area on our sidewalk, so you have a great place to sit and hang out with friends.  Inside we'll provide delicious sangria and have all our products ready for purchase, including: homemade lip balms, body scrubs, healing salves, vapor rubs, warmer melts, laundry detergents, and dryer balls.  We also carry custom-designed postcards, t-shirts, and Fiesta medals as well as pink Himalayan salt lamps, doTERRA essential oils, and Monat hair care products. 

To treat the shoppers, I am pleased to announce that I'll have O Fudge and Hill Country Homestead joining me!  Irma with O Fudge will be giving out samples of every flavor and selling her smooth-as-silk fudge.  Jessica with Hill Country Homestead will be providing appetizers of olive oil dips and her homemade bread, as well as selling her amazing fresh loaves.

We're encouraging ladies to attend... and bring friends!  Start your evening off right at one of Boerne’s amazing local restaurants then shop, take pictures, and have a blast!”

Y’all…how much fun does that sound?  This is the perfect opportunity to get AWAY from home for a night and have some fun.  I am SO looking forward to leaving the kiddos with my husband and not having to do the usual homework, dinner, cleanup, or bed time that night…ha!  So, mark your calendars, grab some friends (and your Christmas list!), and join us for a great time!  See you there!
