Girls Getaway Weekend

June 1-3 in beautiful Ellicottville, NY

Girls, have you been looking for a reason to get together and have an amazing experience that’s both relaxing and fun? The Ellicottville Girls Getaway Weekend is exactly what you need, and it’s set to take place June 1-3, 2018. Whether you’re a mother, a girlfriend, married, single, a sister, an aunt, a grandma, or just a girl who likes to have fun and unwind with the ladies on occasion, this weekend was created just for you!

Plan a trip to the bustling village of Ellicottville with all your gal pals and enjoy a plethora of activities that are being planned - everything from yoga, jewelry making, scarf tying, mixology, essential oils workshops and more will be available for participants. An outstanding brunch, cocktail hour and amazing shopping specials will all be included in your Girls Getaway registration price. Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the activities being planned …

Welcome Reception: No retreat would be complete without a welcome party!  A special reception Friday night at the EllicottVillas will invite participants of Girls Getaway Weekend to mingle, pick up their registration packets and goodie bags, and have the opportunity to review and meet the instructors of all the activities/classes being offered. The events committee is anxious to spoil you with amazing hors d’oeuvres, wine tastings and other special treats.

Yoga: Laura Solly, owner of Laura Solly Yoga and Daff Drygoods, will be teaching Hatha Yoga classes including meditation and breath work along with some partner poses. “We all love to come here and shop, eat, laugh, drink wine, talk, and be healthy with our spas, yoga, hiking, etc.  Girls Getaway Weekend in Ellicottville is the perfect opportunity for all of that.” At Daff, Laura and her staff are already putting together plans to decorate the store festively and invitingly for women, and they’ll be offering an in-store special for shoppers as well.

Essential Oils: Nature’s Remedy will offer workshops on Essential Oils and the many different benefits, applications for daily use, fun questionnaires that participants can fill out to asses which oils will be most beneficial for them, inhalation sampling, and the opportunity to “make and take” your own essential oil. Kristina Barlow, Ellicottville native and Naturopathic Doctor for Nature’s Remedy, is excited to share her wealth of essential oils education with other women during Girls Getaway Weekend.

Scarf Tying: Ava Grace Fashion’s scarf tying videos on Facebook have opened up the door to new and different ways to wear scarves.  Owner Jessica Maynard will offer scarf tying sessions at her store (located next to The Tee Bar). “It’s going to be a fun hands-on event and each person will get to leave with a new scarf at the end of our workshop,” she said. For those who already wear and love scarves, this will be a chance to pick up new ideas or share their tips with others in the group.  And for those who say they don’t wear scarves or have no clue what to do with them, no worries!  According to Jess, “This will be a fun crash course in adding a bit of color and style to any outfit using scarves.”
