Keep Your New Years Resolution: Shop More!

This is the time we like to make plans for the year ahead and attempt to commit to our New Years resolutions. Whether losing weight, saving money, planning a vacation or organizing your home is at the top of your list, each holds the same importance. I definitely have my goals set and hope to achieve most of them. Wishful thinking perhaps, but optimism is where it all begins. Some of us may need a little break from shopping, but for those who don’t, there are a lot of fabulous sales and wonderful offerings and shopping events. Here we go!

On Thursday, January 17, Bay Street Theatre is hosting their much-anticipated “Girls Night Out” with special hosts Diana de Castro, Emma Jacobs, Barbara Kushner, Summer Loucheim and Susie Sabin. Tickets will be $25 per person available at the door, and they include one drink of your choice and one raffle ticket. Raffles include jewelry, accessories and clothing, as well as many other treats. The fun begins with pampering by the staff from Salon Xavier with mini-manicures, massages and hair blowouts. Then Paula Jerome will show off her “New York City” line of jewelry in addition to stylish fashions from Lilly Pulitzer and Stella & Dot. Sen and Espresso Italian Market will provide lite bites. New this year, bring in your old gold and silver and Yiesley Jewelers will give you cash on the spot for it. All proceeds benefit Bay Street Theatre’s educational programs, including Literature Live! which brings school age children from across Long Island to witness live, professional theatrical productions. Doors open at 6:30 pm. For further information, call Mary Ellen at 631-725-0818 ext. 112.
