The Little Pink Party to dazzle
There’s Black Friday, Cyber Monday and then there’s the Little Pink Party.
Shopaholics, fun lovers and social butterflies, get your outfits — and more importantly, your pocketbooks — ready.
The Little Pink Party, described as the mother of all experiential shopping parties, is just over one week away.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the Little Pink Party will deliver an even more exciting experience than it has in years past, according to organizers.
While the name may suggest that the event is small, the event’s lead media consultant, Jayde Knowles, said it’ll pack a big and satisfying punch.
She said patrons will be able indulge their every whim to shop, sip, see, sample, snap and score.
“Every year we make sure that we do it bigger and better,” Knowles said.
“We cater to all of our patrons, no matter their age. And of course, the experience alone gives it the dazzle that the females want.
“Everybody is always looking for something to do, and how great is it that you get to come to one place where you get to shop — shop for everything that you like, clothes, shoes, healthcare products, get beauty tips?
“You get to sip on your favorite champagne or cosmos. You get to sample some of the greatest little cupcakes, food and beauty products.
“You get to see how many wonderful small businesses are out there and become lifetime customers.
“You get to snap, take your favorite pictures with your friends, family and the local celebrities.
“And you get to score. There are so many giveaways, and you get to leave with a bag full of goodies, worth way more than you’ll spend. It does not get any better than that.”
Knowles said the swag bag, which is traditionally packed with goodies from an array of vendors, has been upgraded.
“Those are your ultimate, pretty travel bags, like none other, “she added.
Sisters Krista Hanna-Nairn and Kandice Hanna introduced the event to Nassau’s social scene in 2008, and the event hasn’t lost any of its appeal.
Organizers say shoppers will be able to experience the “new, next and now”.
According to its press release, party-goers will have the opportunity to shop over 50 exhibiting brands and small businesses, sip on cocktails and mocktails, sample products, services, confections, snacks and savory bites. Attendees snap selfies and group shots in the styled spaces created for social media posts — sharing their experiences with friends and followers.
Vendors include Amani Hair and Beauty, Bioré Pop Stop, Goombay Candles, Donita Design Fine Straw Handicraft, Cute Lil Tingz, Tingsy and African Pride, among others.
“For us, it’s more than a shopping party. We provide smaller brands an opportunity to market to their target demographic at a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing. Many of our boutique exhibitors are upstart brands and businesses hoping to find their niche market. Selling products can be difficult; moreso, getting people into a brick-and-mortar store can be a challenge. The Little Pink Party introduces the brand to the buyer. Bargain buyers score more with discounted prices from the vendors snagging savings at every turn,” said Bodine Johnson, director of entertainment.
“Grab your girls and shop it like it’s hot,” a release said.
There will be live entertainment and giveaways every hour.
The party, which will return to Baha Mar’s Convention Center on Saturday, December 1, starts at 3 p.m. and continues until 8pm.
Tickets for the event are $15 and can be purchased at Bay Street Medical, on Marlborough Street; MiMi on Mackey Street; Happy Hair Boutique on Sears Hill Road; Bliss Wax Boutique on West Bay Street; Amani Hair and Beauty on Soldier Road; and House of Hanna on Robinson Road.
The event is sponsored by Neutrogena, Maybelline, Aunt Jackies, Rush Imports and Bay Street Medical.
