The Lady's Day Out

The Lady's Day Out, the annual fun-filled, day-long  event is slated for Saturday, November 20.

"Women of all ages turned out in droves last year," said LDO organizer Jessica Jones who dreamed up the idea and launched the town-wide event with little fanfare.

Under sunny skies legions of girls could be seen darting in and out of shops carrying bags of loot along the entire length of Main Street, Jones reminisced. 

"Seeing that many people out and about on foot was a first for Bridgton," said Jones.  "Shop owners, eager to promote their unique businesses, handed out gifts, held raffles, and touted discounts throughout the day."

This year's LDO will follow the same plan, but six new vendors have been added bringing the total to 25. "Bridgton’s newest shop, Pleasant Mountain Pottery, is raffling a piece of their lovely hand-made pottery," said Jones.

"I can think of at least a dozen shops that are making plans to lure the girls into their establishments with coveted freebies such as free mini-facials, roses, chocolates, massages  … the way to any girl’s heart," said Jones.

This year two very unusual services are being offered to lucky winners. "Bridgton's Tai Chi Society will  teach 27 of their holistic moves  for free," Jones noted. "Dona Forke, a Registered Dietitian, will give a lucky winner a complete food pantry make-over."

"The feedback was so positive we simply had to throw another Lady’s Day Out," said Jones. "Come on down girls, let’s party, and relax together again this year."

Rain or shine the Lady’s Day Out starts at 10 a.m. and continues until 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 20th. 

Imaginative door prizes, discounts and drawings are widely available throughout town.  "Lady’s Day Out is the best way to get a jump on all your Christmas shopping, at a discount," Jones concluded. 

Ms. Jones is the owner of Firefly Boutique and Java Jewels located at 82 Main Street.
