Big Shoe Thursday!

Posted in Contest

The Shop Tart has an excellent Thursday planned for you, and it’s all about shoes. And bubbly. And sparkly things. Have a healthy lunch for energy, because the fun starts at 2 pm at Kicks, with a Jane Kulbersh & Co. fine jewelry trunk show.

Sparkles and Shoes!

That evening, Jane will be offering 20 to 50 percent off her collection. And…Kicks is offering 25 percent off your purchase! As always, Kicks will be glad to help you make a wish list for that special someone who wants to know exactly what to get you for the holidays. In addition to fab baubles, gorgeous shoes, and sweet discounts, the team from Laura Mercier will be there doing makeup touch-ups for free.

Which is great, because you won’t have time to go home before you head straight to Cafe Caturra for Girls Night Out, from 6 to 8 pm. Champagne, hors d’œvres, shoes from Gwen Rawls, and the newest things for your home from MACK.

Girls Night Out!

Tickets are $25 (bubbly, snacks, and browsing included) and you can call 803-782-0760 for a reservation. You know what else you can do? Enter to win a pair of tickets for you and a friend! The lovely hosts have offered two for the Shop Tart to give away to readers, and it may be your lucky day. Before noon on Thursday, leave a comment below. Any comment will do, but the Shop Tart would love to know what’s on your wish list for the holidays. Her list is as sparkly as always, but she mostly wants to share cozy nights around a table — at home or out and about, and the table can be a bonfire, a bar, or an overturned barrel — with friends and family. So far, so good!

With everything happening on Thursday, the Shop Tart hopes you will be able to squeeze in a stroll at Mingle and Jingle on Main. First Thursdays on Main are always a blast and Mingle on Jingle is the best one of the year! (Arguable, of course, so feel free to share your favorite First Thursday moment in the comments section.) Check the Facebook event page to find out some of the things happening on Main this week (Hello, HUGE sale at the Columbia Museum of Art Gift Shop!). And we hear Santa may be there. Looks like he traded his sleigh for this car from Something Special Florist (where you can enjoy wine, holiday treats, and sales on Thursday).


So…get to the gym, get some sleep, and eat a healthy breakfast, because there is a lot of fun to be had and you don’t want to miss a thing! Don’t forget to enter to win those tickets for Girls Night Out — ready, set, go!
