Food, shopping and store specials are all in store tonight as downtown Glen Ellyn welcomes hundreds of women for Ladies Night Out.
Last year the special night of shopping drew more than 500 women to downtown Glen Ellyn and this year the expectation is that the turnout will be just as good if not better.
The Alliance of Downtown Glen Ellyn sponsors the event, which is in its fifth year and will have more than 20 downtown businesses participating.
Shoppers purchase tickets for the event, which allows them to obtain a wristband for three adult beverages served at participating businesses, said Carol White, the alliance’s executive director. The wristband also allows participants to be entered into special drawings and to enjoy any appetizers offered at businesses.
Shoppers who spend $50 will receive a coupon for $10 off to be used for a future purchase, according to the alliance.
“Enjoy buying gifts for friends and family during this year’s Ladies Night Out. Return the following week and use your discount to buy a treat for yourself,” White said in a news release. “The sense of excitement among our existing and new businesses is awesome!”
Free valet parking will be offered outside of Costello’s Jewelry. Bistro Monet will offer $4 cocktails and appetizers. Shoppers can register and receive wristbands at AliKat, Enchantments or P.S. Flowers. The first 100 shoppers to register at one of the locations will receive a free gift.
Ladies Night Out in downtown Glen Ellyn will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday. Learn more about Ladies Night.
