Whether you’re headed to a spring soiree, graduation, an outdoor wedding, or a night on the town — we have a dress for THAT. Here’s a peek at what dresses are in store at your favorite Green Spring Station boutiques!
We all know how crazy the holidays get. If you’re not running from one get-together or another, you’re wrapping, baking, shopping… and hardly any opportunity for ‘adults only’ time with your significant other that doesn’t involve co-workers or family.
So we’re giving parents and couples everywhere a little R+R (retail + relationship therapy) this holiday season! Join (cool) progeny at the Station on Saturday, December 13th from 2 PM – 5 PM for a holiday date! Enjoy complimentary his + her cocktails, strolling entertainment, giveaways, favorite (cool) gift ideas, events and specials at each of the boutiques/restaurants, and more. It’s an opportunity to reconnect with your favorite person while nabbing fabulous gifts for every person on your list (even that hard-to-buy-for second cousin whose name you pulled for the family gift exchange…).
Did we mention all of the boutiques offer wrapping?
Here are some of the very (cool) things that are happening around the Station that day:
Cupcake is hosting a Rachel Mulherin trunk show
Matava Shoes offering 20% off FRYE boots
[email protected] Co. offering 20% off everything in store
Tark’s Grill is offering a free appetizer with day’s boutique receipt
Yves Delorme offering 20% off storewide
To ensure that you really get time to reconnect with your significant other, Green Spring Racquet Club is offering childcare options for children ages 4-12. Sign your child up for a tennis “social” (1:30 PM – 3 PM) or squash “social (3:30 PM – 5:00 PM). Holiday activities and snacks will be offered between 3:00 PM and 3:30 PM. It’s $20 for a half session (1:30 PM – 3:30 PM; or 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM) or $35 for the entire session (1:30 PM – 5:00 PM). Childcare must be booked in advance and is only refundable up to 7 days before the event. After that, no childcare refunds will be given. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Be sure to RSVP so we know how many cocktails to mix!
We’ve long been fans of Iced Gems, the pink-and-white gourmet cupcake food truck that serves up ridiculously tempting buttercream-topped cupcake confections. (Writing that sentence just made me SO hungry.) Which is why it’s no surprise — but still pretty great! — that Iced Gems won the top prize at this weekend’s annual food truck competition, which included competitors from DC and Philadelphia as well.
This week saw a strange synchronicity of events regarding hazardous (or presumed hazardous) pastries.
In Las Vegas a woman was prevented from bringing a cupcake on board an airplane. Apparently, the TSA agent considered the frosting a “gel,” making it a possible explosive agent. And that must have been some cupcake, because gels are allowed on airplanes up to 3.5 ounces!
In a case of pastries that actually did explode, a Chilean newspaper ran a recipe for churros (fried dough covered with cinnamon and sugar) that directed cooks to take the oil to a temperature that actually made the dough explode! The paper was ordered to compensate thirteen individuals for burns they suffered trying to make the treat. The woman with the most severe injuries was awarded $48,000.
The lesson here? Hmmm. I guess, if you’re flying with a cupcake bring the icing in a separate 3.5 ounce container, and only use recipes from trusted sources.
