Round Up Your Girls, Y'all: Boerne Diva Night is NEXT WEEK!

Round Up Your Girls, Y'all: Boerne Diva Night is NEXT WEEK!

Who: Tons of participating shops on (and near) the Hill Country Mile and YOU!
What: Boerne Diva Night, Fall 2018
When: Thursday, November 8th, 5:00-9:00pm
Where: Downtown Boerne
Why: To HAVE FUN, socialize, and shop!

Last year I made it out to my very first Boerne Diva Night on the Hill Country Mile.  To say that it was amazing and that the event went entirely beyond all my expectations is the honest truth!  Main Street came completely alive with so many wonderful women...shopping, sipping, dancing, tasting, laughing, and thoroughly enjoying the company of good friends and kind neighbors.  There were no strangers that night.  Instead, there was a fantastic community-feel to the whole evening that was almost indescribable; something truly unique to a small Texas town.  We had so much fun, in fact, that I ended up staying out way past my curfew, but hey, that’s allowed every now and then right?

If you're a Diva Night newbie, like I was, you're probably wondering, "So, what exactly is it?".  Well, Diva Night is an event hosted by local Boerne businesses, twice a year, in the fall and spring.  You 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 receive, of course, their tiara and feather boa (because what would a Diva Night be without a bit of bling, right?), and a list of participating Boerne retailers.  The evening is full of music, giveaways, appetizers, and drinks and it’s ALL FREE, so how much you spend is totally up to you!  Here are a few of the adorable finds I spotted in the shops last fall:

And just take a look at these twenty-two wonderful Boerne retailers who will be joining in on the Diva Night fun this go-round…some of my absolute favorites are here and there are even more participating who aren’t listed!

As for the particulars, so far we know that Dang Sassy will have snacks and wine as well as a local stylist on-site doing feather hair extensions and Courtney Kerry Photography taking photos. Maker’s Place will be offering 30% off a class if you register at Diva Night, 30% off all ceramics, plus sangria and goodies. Smallcakes will have apple cider mimosas and cinnamon mini cupcakes as well as a chance to win a dozen cupcakes of your own! The Silver Queen will have margaritas and 20% discounts throughout the store and The Bra Chick will have wine and drawings for giveaways. We’ll also find a sparkling lighted selfie station, 10% - 40% off, wine, and treats at Hunting & Gathering for the Home. From Scratch Farm will have a Christmas-themed selfie station, 10% off all merchandise, and chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! Slider Shack Food Truck will be set up in front of The Flower Shop to put a bit of food in our bellies to go with all that free wine, and Southern Voice will have the Fredericksburg parade Santa available for pictures in this adorable vintage truck!

Still on the fence?  Well, pictures never lie, right? This event is a BLAST, ya’ll!

I wouldn't lie to you, folks...this is a fantastic night in our little town.  So, start roundin’ up the girlfriends and making plans.  Kick off the night with drinks, appetizers, or dinner at one of Boerne’s amazing restaurants then head on over to The Dienger Trading Co. or The Flower Shop at 5:00pm to grab your free bling.  Don’t be late; they go fast!  Then enjoy every minute of your evening out of the house, away from the family, and laughing with the girls.  You know you need it…I sure do.  See you there!
