You ladies sure know how to have a good time!
Last month, we at Reno Moms Blog hosted our first-ever Mom’s Night Out event, inviting mamas from all over the Truckee Meadows to break away for a fun night of dressing up, meeting fellow moms and trading war stories over a glass (or two!) of bubbly and wine at Summit Reno’s Stylist Lounge. It was an evening of pampering and beauty tips, shopping, delicious treats, raffle prizes and a time to relax and catch up with fellow local moms.
Everyone was treated a complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival, and then we kicked off the night with personal style presentation by Isha Casagrande of Lipstick Fashion Lounge & Salon (she’s also the Summit’s personal shopper!). Starting with the infamous “LBD” (little black dress), Isha gave us lots of easy, practical, fashionable tips for dressing up the LBD for work, play or running around town. Using hats, belts, scarves, jewelry, jackets and other clothing, Isha showed us how to make the most of one dress with items we already have in our closets. Perfect!
After the presentation, it was time for a bite to eat and wine by the glass, poured by L’Uva Bella Wine Gallery. Sweets and snacks were provided courtesy of our sponsors Delicious Designs and Katie Coombs’ “Uncommon Sense” radio program. Mamas nibbled on a scrumptious variety of mini cupcakes, along with fresh fruit, nuts, crackers and spreads.
Then we got down to business with some pampering! The fantastic staff from Lipstick Salon were on hand to offer free chair massage, free quickie “dry” manicures with fresh, festive polish, and professional brow grooming for just $8 – that’s a steal!
The hardworking mamas of Black Rock Mud Company introduced us all to the cooling, healing mud straight from northern Nevada’s own Black Rock Desert, and provided lots of mini facials. Plus, stylists from the brand-new Reno Blow Dry Bar gave a few lucky moms some fabulous, chic up-dos and braids.
Aaaaaaaand – the shopping! We tried on a variety of affordable and stylish pieces in a range of sizes, personally selected by Isha for Lipstick Fashion Lounge. The black dress featured in Isha’s presentation was a hot seller that night, along hats! Stephanie from Woman of Troy had an incredible selection of one‐of‐a‐kind, can’t‐find‐it‐anywhere else custom jewelry pieces, perfect for tipping off any wardrobe.
We ended the night with giveaways and goodies to take home! It was almost as good as Christmas morning, announcing the names of lucky mamas who won a boudoir session from BMW Photography, life coaching sessions from Nahara Center Life Coaching, a five-week Core fitness session from Kaia FIT Sierra, a mudpot and mud soap bundle from Black Rock Mud Company, a Pampermint Footcare Package from Arbonne – Consultant Megan Fikes, $100 gift card for Wild River Grille, $50 gift card for Once Upon a Child, a laser skincare bundle from Reno Vein Clinic, a family adventure package from Wasting Arrows and a spa treatment gift card for Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.
Last but not least, we know you mamas love and appreciate swag! We ended the night with gift bags of exclusive treats, samples and deals worth $50, from: 31 Gifts, Becky’s Blissful Bakery, Kaia FIT Sierra, Big Horn Olive Oil Company, Once Upon a Child, Reno Magazine, Wild River Grille and Wood-Fire Roasted Coffee Company.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Brooke Westlake-Kelley of BMW Photography, for not only capturing all of the fun but also for being such a fun person to hang out with! We”re also grateful to Isha at Lipstick Fashion Lounge & Salon and Stephanie at Woman of Troy who presented this Mom’s Night Out alongside us.
