Discover Incline Village’s Festive Season: Village Center Sip and Shop & Thrift Shop Holiday Open House

November 7, 2023 | Julie Malkin-Manning

IVCBA is excited to present a season full of fun and festive events as part of Northern Lights, including Sip & Shop and Sip & Snack events, featuring local merchants in Incline Village. With a total of five official shopping centers in our beautiful village, our local merchants and business owners are gearing up to make your holiday shopping a joyful experience. They’re here to help you find the perfect gifts while having a great time in the process.

This Saturday, November 11, marks the beginning of the Northern Lights Festival season, and it comes with not one but two exciting events. First up is a Sip and Shop at the Village Center, and the return of the much-anticipated Christmas Comes to Incline Thrift Store Open House.

Participating member merchants at the Village Center include Glasses Wine Bar, Tahoe Fitness Loft, the soon-to-open Grocery Outlet, and the thrift shops. 

Glasses Wine Bar is serving up delightful $5 Mimosas and wine, and they’ve even invited friends like WARF and Tamacino Jewelry to help you shop for a cause. Plus, you can enjoy a 10% discount on all their entertaining wine-related merchandise and wine bottles (excluding Library Selections). Kathleen and Rob are on hand to guide you to the perfect bottles for your gatherings or gifting. www.glasseswinebar.com

Tahoe Fitness Loft/Core Pilates is more than just a Pilates studio. They offer a wide range of fitness classes, from cycling and weight training to TRX, Barre, HIIT, and even children’s ballet and karate. This season, they’re offering an exclusive 15% discount on membership packages for both new and existing members, making it easier for you and a friend to stay active. www.tahoefitnessloft.com

Local floral design, Wyld Peony, is opening a storefront at 797 Southwood Blvd., Suite 15 (upper level). If you haven’t experienced the beautiful blooms created by Jen Wechsler you’re in for a surprise… if you have, you know the magic she creates. Any arrangements orders placed during the Sip and Shop will qualify for a 10% discount – think about your Thanksgiving tablescape and holiday gatherings! www.wyldpeony.com

The highly-anticipated Grocery Outlet Incline Village is officially opening its doors on Thursday, November 16, but co-owners Ryan and Shannon Parrish and their team can’t wait to share a preview with you. As a special welcome, they are giving you a chance to win $1000 in free groceries!
