Hollydays Recap and 2015 News!

Junior League of Louisville’s 2013 Hollydays was a wonderful and fun event despite the crazy early December weather! Friday night was cut short due to the worsening road conditions. On Saturday, although it was still bitterly cold, the sunshine and new Louisville Slugger Field location helped make spirits and shopping much more enjoyable. There were so many unique and new vendors this year from beautiful accessories to active wear to home decor, there was something for everyone. Saturday night was our Annual Girls Night Out; Candy Canes and Cocktails which featured an array for drinks and food for guests to enjoy while shopping.
