How often do you drive down old Main Street and remind yourself to one day park the car and visit all of those cute shops and boutiques? This Thursday, March 8th from 5:00pm – 9:00pm is a great opportunity to do exactly that.
With a portion of the proceeds benefiting Frisco Family Services, the Frisco Downtown Merchants Association is proud to present their now twice-yearly Sip, Shop and Stroll event where participating boutiques, stores and eateries will stay open late sharing exclusive offers and discounts. The boutiques will feature new spring arrivals and huge discounts on sale.
The area is experiencing somewhat of a renaissance lately with new stores and eateries opening on a regular basis. The City of Frisco, local business owners and other stakeholders in town have wonderful plans to revitalize the area while maintaining the vintage vibe and protecting the historic railroad fabric of the area.
While we may have our favorite department stores, they can’t compete with the unique finds you’ll discover at a cozy boutique. When you support our local business owners, you get to know the people behind the product, you keep the community unique, and you likely experience better and more personalized customer service.
And with generous donations directed to Frisco Family Services on Thursday evening, all the more reason to grab some friends, put on your cutest walking shoes and Sip, Shop and Stroll!
What can we expect at this season’s Sip, Shop, and Stroll event?
Besides sipping complimentary wine and sampling appetizers, you can shop exclusive sales, experience exclusive in-store events, indulge in discounts, and raise money for a great cause!
The 100-year-old historic home-turned scratch kitchen is new to the Sip, Shop, and Stroll this season and we’re sure they’ll be a very welcome addition. Not only does this popular eatery offer an impressive menu, featuring great touches like homemade bread, house-cured and smoked meats, locally-sourced produce and craft beverages, but it also has a vibe that is warm and welcoming to all who enter.
Besides being the cutest party and event venue in Historic Frisco, did you know House of Hadley Kate also has their own boutique line? They carry girls’ clothing sizes from infant to 14, accessories including jewelry, bows, hats, scarfs and girly gift items and a selection of women’s accessories. On the evening of Sip, Shop and Stroll they’re offering 20% off one item! In addition to these goodies, visit their beautiful house on Pecan Street to learn more hosting a party, event, shower or meeting at their venue.
A firm favorite in Downtown Frisco, Eight 11 Place plans to start the fun early. Before you put your shopping boots on, stop by and enjoy Happy Hour from 3-6pm. They’re also offering 15% off with an event postcard (available at each of the participating merchants…or show them this article!), and they’ll have live music all evening.
With plans to station their nitro trike (a kegerator on a trike) outside on Main Street, our favorite downtown coffee shop will be open 1 hour later until 9pm offering a place to relax and enjoy all their usual treats, and as they like to say, “coffee unplugged”.
All your favorite boutiques have stocked up with spring favorites and exclusive offers for the night too.
Bittersweet Ivy – Quality unique clothing, accessories, jewelry, and gifts, with brands catering to women and tweens. On the night of Sip, Shop and Stroll, Bittersweet Ivy customers will enjoy an extra 20% off all sale merchandise!

It’s a fun evening for the whole family or even a GNO with girlfriends to spend time together. All the vendors and stores are looking forward to meeting and greeting everyone with refreshments and some door prizes. Most importantly a percentage of proceeds from each participating venue goes to Frisco Family Services!
