Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your gal pals during Avalon’s Galentine’s Day celebration Feb. 11.
On Thursday, Feb. 11 from 5 to 9 p.m., guests are invited to experience incredible retailer specials and exciting workshops while toasting with complimentary cocktails along the Boulevard. The first 300 guests to visit Concierge will receive a special Galentine’s Day treat.
“Galentine’s Day is the perfect occasion for gal pals to come together and experience the best that Avalon has to offer,” Avalon marketing manager Lauren Ness said. “This year, more than 20 of our retailers and restaurants are offering can’t-miss specials along the Boulevard. From an exclusive driving experience with Tesla to complimentary champagne at Oak Steakhouse and Colletta, Galentine’s Day at Avalon is the perfect way for ladies to spend the holiday.”
Originally introduced on the popular sitcom Parks and Recreation as an opportunity to celebrate ladies, Galentine’s Day has become a widely celebrated holiday dedicated to female friendship. In honor of the special occasion, a collection of Avalon’s retailers have joined forces to offer gal pals an evening of exclusive shopping steals and special experiences.
Beginning at 5 p.m., guests can visit Concierge to pick up a stroll map that outlines the evening’s retail and restaurant specials. Before hitting the Boulevard, gals can stop by the PopnPixel booth at Concierge to strike a pose and make a custom GIF with their besties.
New this year, The Hotel at Avalon is offering a discounted rate for Galentine’s Day guests interested in staying the night on Feb. 11 or Feb. 12. To lock in the special rate, guests must book by Feb. 9. Reservations can be made here.
Special Galentine’s Day offers include 20% off your purchase at Madewell, free reformer class at Club Pilates (have to call and reserve) and a $25 wine tasting with small bites at CRU.
