Last Friday we hosted a Ladies Night Out event here at the Running Warehouse retail store in San Luis Obispo, and it was awesome. We partnered with Oiselle, a women’s running apparel brand that just so happens to be the bees’ knees, and planned a fun night out where women who love to run could come and socialize with like-minded ladies. Here’s what went down.
Meet & greet. We had three guests of honor: Allison Maxson, Kate Grace, and Lauren Wallace (pictured left to right), elite runners sponsored by Oiselle. They came early in the afternoon before the event started to shoot some photos in our studio, and you’ll soon be able to enjoy those once they are live on our website. After their shoot, they came down to our retail store for the event and had a meet and greet set up, chatting with local lady runners and passing out fan cards.
Wine & aps. Beverages and snacks were served by our lovely Oiselle sales rep, Christy!
Fall 2015 apparel. We set up a special seasonal display of all the Oiselle running apparel we are carrying for Fall 2015. RW employees helped guests pick pieces to try on. From race kit to cozy to seamless to fashion-forward, Oiselle seems to cover the spectrum every time.
Selfie station. Silly props and a “Oiselle In The House” backdrop set the stage for selfie fun. You can find some of the pics if you search the hashtag #OiselleInTheHouse on Instagram, or peep our Facebook photo album.
Prizes. Christy (the aforementioned lovely sales rep) provided prizes to raffle off, so a few of our guests walked away with awesome Oiselle prizes!
Fun. It was a unique opportunity to not only socialize with the likes of Kate, Lauren, and Allison, but also to connect with other local ladies with a passion for running. We had a blast organizing the event and hope that we can host more events like this Ladies Night Out in the near future.
