Last weekend we had a Girls’ Night Out at Southlands Shopping Center and it was completely amaze balls! It was definitely one of the highlights to the Create, Make and Celebrate Retreat that I hosted. I love everything about Southlands from the arriving to find easy access to great parking through the leaving with a happy heart (and bags full of awesome finds). While I love Southlands all year round, it is spectacular at Christmastime. We had a complete blast shopping, eating out and laughing the night away. Here are my top three reasons to shop at Southlands with your girlfriends!
Reason Number One – The atmosphere is lovely! From the white lights lining the streets to the cackling fire pit and the amazing sculptures…Southlands is a beautiful place to shop, eat and mingle with friends. This photograph I took with my phone during our Girls’ Night Out is so fun!
Reason Number Two – The selection of stores is awesome sauce amazing. From clothing to kitchen to gifts and specialty shops….Southlands has a store for every kind of girlfriend. My favorites of course are World Market, Hallmark and Barnes and Noble. Here is my bestie in World Market sporting her Where Women Create bag along with other photos from our creative book shopping spree at Barnes and Noble.
These girls had a blast at World Market…buying up holiday decor, gourmet foods and special treats.
And look!!! Look at these festive finds from Hallmark in Southlands!
Reason Number Three – FOOD and DRINKS!!! There are so many fantastic restaurants in which to dine. We ate at the amazing Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar and it was not only delicious, but the service was super excellent and the environment uplifting and inspiring.
Check out these marketing pieces from our table. In all seriousness, 13 CREATIVE bloggers at one table with THIS!
And this photo of these two people who have supported me in having this whole retreat dream come true….my husband and Jo Packham, the founder of Where Women Create.
Get your calendar out and plan a gathering with your girlfriends to shop, drink, eat and celebrate friendship at Southlands Shopping Center. Trust me….you will be happy you did! Better yet, head over there this weekend and shop to win! The #SouthlandsBFF contest is awesome. Find out more about it on their Facebook page HERE!
