The Shoppes at Farmington Valley Sip & Shop Event
September 26, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Shoppes at Farmington Valley is pleased to announce the popular wine tasting and shopping event, Sip & Shop, is returning to the property for a fifth year. Guests are invited to sip, nibble, shop and stroll Wednesday, September 26, 2018 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM while enjoying exclusive savings, gift bags and raffles.
Wine tastings will be held at a selection of standout shops and spas across the property: Green Tangerine, Harvey & Lewis, J.Crew, J.Jill, Massage Envy, O’Live A Little, and Sephora, with specials and discounts being offered from many more. A reception with food, music and entertainment will follow. Proceeds from the event will benefit Gifts of Love, an organization dedicated to assisting families in crisis in the Hartford area.
Last year, Sip & Shop raised over $2,500 for Gifts of Love.
A $10 donation grants each guest a wine glass and savings passport redeemable for exclusive discounts throughout the evening; the first 100 guests will receive a gift bag complete with coupons and samples. From 6:00PM to 7:30PM, guests can shop their way across the property while visiting the seven wine tasting stations located in select retailers and spas. At 7:30, all are invited to a reception where guests will be invited to participate in an Instagram worthy flower wall, delicious bites from property restaurants and Sur La Table, music, a photobooth, and a raffle auctioning over 20 coveted items including massages, classes at premiere barre studio barre3, other retailer gift cards.
“Sip & Shop is one of our favorite events of the year; it’s an opportunity to welcome the community in for a night of fun while showcasing our wide array of shops, spas, fitness studios, and restaurants – and all for a great cause,” says Elizabeth Ackerman, General Manager of The Shoppes at Farmington Valley
