Can we take a minute to talk about how there won’t be any Sweethearts candies this year? I don’t even like them – but they do bring back sort-of fond memories of hoping for many Valentine’s cards from classmates at school. But alas – I’ve found more exciting Valentine’s Day treats – and I’m excited to share them with you.
This year – I’m looking forward to a sloppy but sweet Valentine’s Day card-making sesh with my toddler (don’t worry – I know not to give him glitter yet) – as well as some fun collaborative events with other local businesses in Charlottesville. I also get to co-host a private “Wishlist Night” event in Roanoke – if this sounds like fun to you, please reach out to us, as it sounds like a lot of fun to us too!
Here’s what’s all on the schedule:
Feb 2nd: 2-5pm
BeautyCounter Pop Up with Cynthia Fortunato (Charlottesville store only)
Cynthia reached out to us because she has a passion for clean, safe beauty and skincare, and this fits right in with our message of self-appreciation and care. She’ll have products out to try, and has graciously put up a gift set as a raffle prize for one lucky shopper at the event – enter to win with either a purchase from her, or a purchase from Derriere de Soie.
Feb 8-10: 4th St Valentine’s Extravaganza
We’re teaming up with, what is basically the perfect Valentine’s Day lineup. Some of our favorite local shops are putting gift-cards up for raffle – enter with any purchase from any of the participating merchants from Feb 8-10 (so, if you shop at several, more entries for you!). Joining us are:
The Candy Shop
Hedge Fine Blooms
The Pie Chest
Market Street Wine
Derriere de Soie
So clearly: this year could be the best V-day ever. Will you be our Valentine?
