Valentine’s Day, Minus the Men

Valentine’s Day: a day of roses, chocolates, candy, passion and love… at least for those who have someone special in their life. For some, it can be a romantic and exciting holiday; for others it can be a depressing, dreaded, get me out of this country nightmare. For all you single ladies not looking forward to this Hallmark-created frenzy, make Valentine’s Day about something other than a lover and plan an evening with just the girls. On February 13 (the day before Valentine’s Day), the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa is holding the “Confessions of a Shopaholic: The Movie” Party that is sure to put a smile back on your face. It includes everything a girl really loves: a delicious dinner, specialty cocktails, a chick flick, shopping and of course, your girlfriends!


Start the night off with a toast to you and your girls and then head on over to Kierland Commons for a unique, VIP shopping experience at their celebrated retailers and boutiques. Then enjoy a three-course dinner in The Westin Kierland’s signature restaurant Deseo followed by a screening of “Confessions of a Shopaholic: The Movie,” starring Wedding Crasher’s Isla Fisher and Hugh Dancy, on opening night. (The film is about a college graduate who is hired as a financial journalist in New York City to support her shopping addiction and falls for a wealthy entrepreneur. It is based on the novel “Confessions of a Shopaholic” by Sophie Kinsella.)
