Designers, Deals & Drinks!

Shop-A-Holics Weekend in Avalon Set for March 8-10


AVALON, N.J. —Shop-A-Holics Weekend kicks off the lineup of 2018 events in Avalon March 8-10 at The Princeton and The Whitebrier. Featuring designers, deals and drinks, the festivities kick off on March 8 with the Thursday night preview party from 4-9pm and continues Friday night from 4-9pm and Saturday from 10am-6pm.

The event, hosted by the 7 Mile Business Community Association (7MBCA), offers shoppers two indoor venues with a variety of Avalon and Stone Harbor shops represented, including Tiger Lily, Hassis Men’s Shop, The Preppy Palm, Global Pursuit, Armadillo, Ltd., and more.

“The Shop-A-Holics event is many things to many people,” said Kathleen Wierzbicki, the event coordinator. “To some, it represents a chance to reconnect with their shore friends and enjoy a weekend away; for others, it is an opportunity to take advantage of all the great bargains from the best shops on Seven Mile Island, all while supporting the local charity, Friend In Need.  Whatever your reasons, it a ‘Must Attend’ on your calendar.”

Throughout the weekend, The Princeton and The Whitebrier will serve drink specials and a small-plates menu so you can sip, snack and shop your way through each boutique and business. With more than 30 participating stores, there is something for everyone, including the latest in fashion from Coco Blu, ellelauri, Annabelle, Gingy’s and Closet Boutique, and sunglasses from Shades of Avalon. Coffee Talk will be serving coffee and pastries and there will be drink and food specials throughout the event.

Monetary donations will be accepted for this year’s beneficiary, Friend In Need. The organization was created to help those who are in need in Cape May County.

Think warm thoughts this winter and enjoy some retail therapy to curb those winter blues during Shop-A-Holics Weekend. The Princeton Bar & Grill is located at 2008 Dune Drive and The Whitebrier is at 260 20th St.

The event is supported in part by a grant from the NJ Department of State, Division of Travel and Tourism.
