The seasons are getting ready to change and it’s the perfect excuse for a “staycation” in Montrose! This weekend is the time to make a day of it shopping, dining, getting a pedicure, a new hair style, or a massage, and then sticking around for some free entertainment at our 4th Annual Film Festival.
Have you seen It Takes A Village (2317 Honolulu Ave.) yet? It’s one of the best kids boutiques you will find. Where else can you get the new Downeast Girl fashions for your girls? Merle Norman Cosmetics has a must have gift with purchase featuring anti-aging complex. Revelation Tops has a 25% off coupon event. Needle In A Haystack offers rich colors in yarns. A big crop of pumpkins has arrived at Mountain Rose Gifts. Check out the fall styles at Walk This Way shoes! Lots of summer sales around town!
Montrose is a foodie place. Try Gio’s Baguettes & More (3805 Ocean View Blvd.) where your sandwich is made fresh with just baked French bread. They are rocking the house with gourmet cupcakes and berry tarts, too! Pears are in season, and Casa Cordoba has them in a red wine reduction and a side of mascarpone cheese. Banana chocolate chip is back at Paradis Ice Cream!
Both Friday and Saturday night we will have live music, free popcorn, and a movie under the stars all compliments of your Montrose Shopping Park merchants. The festivities take place next to Andersen’s Pets and begin at 6:30 p.m. This year we are showcasing the movies of Blake Edwards, namely “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and the “Pink Panther.” For more info, see our website www.shopmontrose.com. Thank you for shopping the small stores of Montrose!
