Newton Falls – Recently, a café that usually tantalizes customers with its breakfast and lunchtime offerings opened its doors after hours to treat local ladies to a special evening of food, fun, and fashion.

In celebration of women in business, the Brew Basket in Newton Falls hosted a Ladies’ Night complete with opportunities for socialization, relaxation, and some retail therapy in a comfortable atmosphere without the need for venturing out into the crowds at a mall or big box stores.

Tickets sold in advance entitled those in attendance to goodie bags, café samples, and special discounts from vendors presenting designer purses, glittering jewelry, and the freshest make-up techniques. Representatives from Miche handbags, Lia Sophia jewelry, and Mary Kay cosmetics were on hand to show the lovely ladies how to pair the latest trends in purses, jewelry, and make-up with their own personal fashion tastes and varying lifestyles.

Models chosen at random from the audience were invited to participate in a casual catwalk, showcasing the designs from the three independent consultants. Licensed massage practitioners provided some extra pampering by way of chair massages in between fashion show segments.

Door prizes were also awarded from each company’s line of products with up-to-date merchandise on display for a bit of window shopping.

Although this was the first time for such an occasion at the coffee shop, the owners hope to have another similar experience in the near future. In the meantime, keep your eye out for other upcoming events for various tastes ~ there’s always something brewing at the Brew Basket!
