A ‘Noel Night’ of early holiday shopping

Connie Steiert

EAGLE – There are 17 days left until Christmas.And the second annual Noel Night, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. today in downtown Eagle, is an evening of deals and the chance to check out what downtown businesses have for sale this holiday season.”Most of the merchants on Broadway are doing something,” said Erin Seabury, organizer of Noel Night and owner of Everyday Outfitters. The idea began last year, she adds, as a sort of extension of Christmas on Broadway. “People came and hung out and talked with their neighbors. It was just really fun, so we’re doing it again,” she said. Customers who make purchases from downtown businesses between today and Dec. 16 will be eligible for a $500 shopping spree grand prize drawing. Tickets must be turned in to the Broadway Cafe by 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 16. Names will be drawn and prizes will be given away starting around 6:15 p.m. Everyday Outfitters will kick off Noel Night at 4 p.m. with a visit from Santa, who will pose for pictures from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Most downtown merchants will be open late.Kidtopia will have appetizers and beverages. Broadway Liquors will hold a wine tasting from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.Hosted by the Downtown Merchants Association, Noel Night, Seabury said, is the type of community event she envisioned her store being part of when she originally drew up a business plan for Everyday Outfitters. “It’s just kind of an early shopping event, and a way to give back to the community,” she said. Noel Night proved successful for merchants last year. “I think everybody did good business,” Seabury said. “We want to remind people that Broadway’s here, and we have some good shopping, and we want to be the center of the community.”For more information call 328-6382.This article first appeared in the Eagle Valley Enterprise.Vail Daily, Vail Colorado CO
