So I have been meaning to blog about Luxe Bridal Boutique’s amazing and fabulous neighbors…no more procrastinating! If you havent had the pleasure of strolling on North Dal lately..boy are you missing out. I mean, forget that you can find the coolest bridal shop this side of the Market – (k, dont forget) but you can also find some of Ottawa’s best shopping all in one ‘hood.
Every day when I pull into our little parking lot, I pass by the shops and boutiques on our stretch of Dalhousie (St.Patrick to St.Andrew) and start to imagine all of the places I am going to wear the fabulous sequin t-shirt dress I tried at Victoire…or how my friend Kim would love the hand made bloomers they carry. Not to mention the gorge red ruffled dress in the window of Workshop that screams “Maddy!” every time I see it.
And sooo…with great pleasure please join us North Dalhousian’s for two fabulous evenings of hoilday shopping on December 2 & December 16, 2010. Maddy and I are still working on exactly what we want to offer our holiday brides but in the meantime please check out the press release below! (I love the expression, “press release”, it sounds so official).
“Buy local” is on everyone’s mind this holiday season… Dalhousie Street shopping parties are making it easy!
Ottawa’s newest and freshest shopping district is mixing holiday cheer with goodwill: the area’s hippest shops are hosting two fun, discount-filled shopping nights on Thursday, December 2nd and December 16th from 6pm until 9pm, ensuring everyone can support our local economy. The shops are spreading the goodwill by also collecting funds for the Dress for Success Ottawa to ensure everyone feels the holiday cheer.
The street has grown over the past few years and is now bursting with independent boutiques, shops, cafés, salons and spas. It is the number one place to go in Ottawa if you’re a holiday shopper looking for unique accessories and sophisticated clothes for all the holiday festivities as well as a mountain of sublime gifts that will impress and surprise. There won’t be a shortage of cool finds for
everyone on your list, and these are not your run-of-the-mill boutiques: they are independent, locally-owned, and pride themselves on helping you find something unique. So get yourself out of the mall and come be blown away by what we have to offer. And remember, you all know what happens when neighbours work together: one heck of a block party!
On each night, the shops on Dalhousie Street will be accepting donations for Ottawa’s Dress for Success. An organization that helps disadvantaged women feel confident and prepared for job interviews as well as giving them the clothing necessary to be at ease in an office environment, Dress for Success is changing the work prospects for many women in need of resources. Helping this caring and encouraging organization will give many women a lot to cheer for this holiday season. And we on Dalhousie Street can’t think of a better way to bring balance to the holiday season. Santa wouldn’t want it any other way!
Aside from the obvious advantages that occur when a bunch of fun, funky boutiques are all nestled in next to each other, this shopping night will be one to remember because they’re being thrown for
charity! Additionally, as with any spectacular event, shops will be offering specials, discounts, food, drinks, raffles and other treats to celebrate the holiday season, so please – come celebrate with us!
