It's hard to believe that the holiday shopping season is upon us! But sure enough, our holiday decorating has gone into full swing this week, and all of Shelburne is planning for the big shopping days that takes place over Thanksgiving weekend. Here are a few reasons to mark your calendar!
"Pink Friday." Please join us on Friday, November 28, for our "Pink Friday" celebration! We'll kick off the festivities by opening early at 9 and offering you progressive discounts on all non-sale items throughout the morning. We'll also be celebrating with a mimosa bar and my mom's homemade cookies. And, we'll be offering a rare, once-a-year Alex and Ani sale! On Friday, November 28 ONLY, save 15% on all Alex and Ani bangles in stock.
Why "Pink Friday," you ask? Because a portion of our profits that day will be donated to the Cancer Patient Support Program of Vermont. Arabesque has made donations each year to local organizations in support of breast cancer patients since the first "Pink Friday" in 2009, and we look forward to building upon that total this year.
Small Business Saturday. By now you've probably heard about "Small Business Saturday." This celebration of small local businesses was started a few years back by American Express, and this year they're again offering you a $10 credit on your American Express statement if you make a purchase of at least $10 on your Amex card on November 29...and this year they have UPPED the offer to allow you to take advantage of this deal at THREE local businesses! Just be sure to register your card at www.shopsmall.com starting November 16.
Shelburne Holiday Raffle. We're so lucky to be located in a town that's just loaded with outstanding small local businesses, and this year many of us have joined forces on a group marketing effort to encourage people to come to Shelburne for the ultimate small town holiday shopping experience. Each of these 18 businesses has also donated a gift certificate to a GIANT gift basket that we'll be raffling off during the holiday season. Stop by starting Nov. 22 for your entry at any of these participating stores:
We have also joined forces on a group advertising campaign and have arranged for a live broadcast with Star 92.9 radio on "Black Friday," and they will be visiting businesses all around town on that day and to let their listeners know why they should #SHOPSMALL and #SHOPSHELBURNE this holiday season!
