FLINT TWP. — Rainy weather chased the annual “Ladies Night Out” indoors at Genesee Valley Center Thursday night, but eager women lined up in the mall’s center court for a chance to win prizes and other giveaways.
The event was scheduled to be staged in the Outdoor Village wing where most of the merchants are located that participate in a fashion show.
It was the first time in four years that the event had to be held indoors, said Kristen Cassabon, mall marketing manager, who added that she thought that was a pretty lucky track record.
The fun started with a Zumba exercise demonstration by Hurley Health and Fitness Center.
A fashion show followed featuring clothing and accessories from mall merchants including Chicos, Talbots, Coldwater Creek, Gloria’s, Expressions in Silk Bridal & Prom and President Tuxedo.
Macy’s hair salon sponsored a Hair Show demonstrating the latest styles for “real women.’’
Mall food vendors took part in a Taste of Genesee Valley sampling event and mall-wide Bingo offered a chance for shoppers to gather enough chips to win prizes.
Shoppers also received gifts bags containing coupons, special savings and discounts and other information about mall merchants.
