Ladies’ Day Out is Saturday

Katie Cooper is excited to go shopping and attend the Ladies Day Out event that will take place in Downtown Farmington on Saturday, Nov. 17.

FARMINGTON - For the second year on Saturday, girls will rule downtown.

Beginning at 9 a.m., it's the Farmington Downtown Association’s Ladies' Day Out that features special give-a-ways, discounts, food and entertainment especially suited for all those hard-working women (are there any other kind?) out there.

Last year's first Ladies' Day Out was such a resounding success, downtown merchants decided to do it again this year, said Beth Beaudoin, FDA's promotions committee chairwoman.

The first 175 ladies will receive goodie bags filled with more than 20 coupons and free items to enjoy (too many to list and organizers wanted to make it a surprise). Come early, as we ran out early last year, Beaudoin advised.

Only adding to the fun is that the most creatively dressed group of ladies will receive a prize. Last year, a group dressed as earth, wind, water and fire won. Below is a schedule of events for Saturday, Nov. 17:

• 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until we run out) Receive a goodie bag in the Parlor Room at The Homestead Kitchen Bar & Bakery, 186 Broadway in Farmington.

• 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. there will be mini-expo in the Parlor Room at The Homestead Kitchen Bar and Bakery. There will be displays and demonstrations from local businesses. Come and see the shop local window display as well!

• 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Haven's fudge tasting at Richard’s Florist, 149 Main St., Farmington also see their selection of handmade candy canes.

• 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Enter to win a basket at Reny's, 22 Broadway, Farmington.

• 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. there will be foot massages at Divine Inspirations, 283 Front St., Farmington.

• 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. make your own donut and balsam pillow at Mooseville, 156 Main St., Farmington.

  2. Sounds like a fun time..enjoy your day ladies..Wish I could attend, but I have to work. But all you other hard working Ladies...........go get your full deserve !! And thank you Farmington for the acknowledgement , : )

  3. The foot massages will be performed by Faith Fletcher currently of Salon West. There will be some stocking stuffers and gift cards available for the multiple hair and nail services she offers. It is going to be a great time for all!

  4. And, the Mens Day Out? Oh! That's right men are second class citizens!!!!

  5. @ A Vet

    The men don't need a night out, they are all too tired from hunting. We men are all out hunting much more than usual because Obama was re-elected and, according to you, we'll not be allowed to hunt next year.
    Now we're second class citizens as well.
    Where in the world do you get all these ideas that you so often promote?

  6. Amen, Ed. What a poisonous guy.
