King Street Shop Walk to Benefit Charleston’s Center for Women

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 9, 2010 by allisoncunningham

If you’ve been too caught up with holiday decorating, the end of football season, or simply can’t get into the Christmas-shopping mode until the temperatures finally dip below 70, then never fear, this Friday, the King Street Shop Walk is the perfect place to jump start your Christmas shopping.

Over 35 retailers on historic King Street will participate, offering discounts, drinks, and appetizers to get you moving, and to spread some holiday cheer. Shoppers should visit to purchase a “Passport”, which will guarantee exclusives such as complimentary hair and makeup styling tips, discounts, and will act as a guide to all of the shopping and pampering up and down King Street. Other perks include:

– Complimentary wine/champagne/refreshments & appetizers throughout the stores
– Discounted shopping at participating retailers
– Gifts with purchase
– Automatic entry into door prize drawings
– Complimentary skincare/makeup/hair styling services throughout participating retailers
– Fun activities throughout the stores such as design your own undies, make a couture silk flower, warm up at the gourmet hot chocolate stand, and more!

Best of all, the passport sales benefit the Center for Women, the only comprehensive women’s development center in South Carolina, a non-profit whose mission is to make personal and professional success an everyday event for women in the Lowcountry. Passports are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Buy your passport here and pick it up to begin your evening at the Shops of Charleston Place, inside the Charleston Place Hotel. This is a perfect night of Christmas cheer for you and some girlfriends, or to convince your guy to tag along.  So come out, shop, appreciate historic King Street in all its Christmas beauty, and support a great local charity!
