Starting Friday, Jan. 18 and running through Monday, Jan. 21, Blooming Boutique in downtown Lewes, Milford, Rehoboth Beach & Bethany Beach plus Lewes Gifts, Milford Gifts & Treasures, will be hosting chocolate lovers' weekend.
There will be an assortment of delicious chocolate beverages and chocolate items to sample at the stores including chocolate martinis, chocolate wine, chocolate drizzle popcorn and all types of chocolate candy to enjoy. Lewes Gifts will be serving various chocolate items that are carried in the store including Abdallah’s Chocolates, which have been around for over more than 100 years, and Jody’s Gourmet Popcorn.
On Saturday, Jan. 19, the Lewes and Milford Blooming Boutique locations will be having chocolate fountains with a variety of delectables to dip in chocolate. In all the stores, specials will run for the entire weekend, including all bead lines and the newest Delaware Murano Glass Beach Beads.
“We started this tradition a few years ago to help us get over this cold month of January and to start thinking of spring, and this year we decided to expand and have a weekend of indulgence party in all the stores,” says Michiko Seto, owner of Blooming Boutique, Treasures, Lewes Gifts and Milford Gifts. “Blooming Boutique will also be celebrating the move of Milford Gifts inside our new larger Blooming Boutique location in Milford. Since getting the new location in the summer and with the holidays this was the first time we had to really start working on the new store and make it a mega one-stop shopping experience in Milford.“
“This is a great time of the year to come in and take advantage of off-season specials in the entire store from shoes to handbags to clothing. Blooming Boutique has many new lines arriving daily and has started carrying petite sizes and plus-size clothing and will be launching its own line made here in the USA. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, if you were thinking of starting one of the bracelets, Trollbeads is running a promotion to receive a free bracelet with the purchase of a decorative clasp. When women start with the original Trollbeads bracelet, they are getting a universal bracelet that will accommodate most bead lines, plus it is the easiest bracelet to get on and off by yourself. Blooming Boutique will fit you and will trade out the bracelet portion for free as clients add beads and need a larger size,” says Seto.
“If you have a bracelet already, we have an assortment of bead lines to fit on most bracelets including Chamilia and our own Delaware Beach beads now in sterling silver and murano glass, come in and make a wish list to have on file so when Valentine's Day and other special occasions come around, your family members or significant others can just come in and select some beads from your wish list - husbands especially love this program. Very simple process for them, plus you will be surprised as to which items they selected and everyone will be happy,” Seto says.
All stores will be having weekend specials: Lewes Gifts at 118 Second St., Treasures at 116 Second St., Blooming Boutique at 107 Second St., Blooming Boutique and Milford Gifts at 33A North Walnut St., and Blooming Boutique beach locations in Rehoboth and Bethany.
