It is almost hard to believe that our holiday season is fast approaching.  Where has the year gone?!
Here are some important dates to keep in mind.
LADIES NIGHT OUT  -  Our 8th annual Ladies Night Out event is scheduled for Friday evening, November 17, from 5:00 to 8:00.  We have special store hours on this evening in order to give you extra time to shop and have fun with us.  This year we have our event titled SIP, SHOP, AND JIG because we have added an Irish flare to the event.  This is a catered event by Robin’s Comfort Cuisine  and some of the food will have a touch of Irish.  Our live music will be Celtic.  And, our cooking demonstration by Joshua Carroll, University of Richmond Pastry Chef, at 6:30, will be on Irish Potato soup.  Our Ladies Night Out event has become a pre-holiday highlight for both ladies and gentlemen to escape into a night of shopping and fun.  The evening includes 20% off our entire stock of Holiday & Home Décor items such as artificial Christmas trees, wreaths, and garlands as well as all ornaments and Christmas decorations.  We will have live music, prizes, wine tasting, many great vendors, and more.  Santa will be making his first appearance.  So, spread the word and bring a friend!
HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE  -  Our 19th annual Holiday Open House continues the pre-holiday festivities for the weekend.  This event is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, November 18 & 19.  Saturday has been tagged RICHMOND SYMPHONY DAY.  Members of the Richmond Symphony Orchestra League will be here providing a wonderful bake sale.  Members of the Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra will be here adding holiday music.  And, our sale on holiday and home décor will continue throughout the weekend.  And, again, Santa will be here on Saturday from 10:00 to 2:00 and on Sunday from 12:00 to 4:00.  Be sure to bring your camera to take pictures of your children or pets with Santa in a beautiful holiday setting.
                Starting Friday evening and throughout the weekend we will be conducting a raffle.  We will be selecting various items from the store for the raffle table.  All you need to do is to fill out a form and drop it in the basket.  Winners will be contacted the first of the week.  And, everyone will be eligible to win our GRAND PRIZE $200.00 GIFT CARD.  Good luck to everyone.
                Oh!  Our first shipment of freshly cut Christmas trees, wreaths, swags, and garlands will be here starting November 14.  Poinsettias, in glorious colors, will be here for the weekend festivities as well.
                So, come out and see for yourself why we are Richmond’s best garden center.
