When it comes to getting your shopping on, why not get some of your friends together and make a day of it. Not only do you have an instant fashion guru with you, granted your friends have some sense of style, but you’ll be able to do some other fun stuff and even catch up on your lives with a little girl talk.
Plan out your store itinerary, fill in a spot for lunch or dinner in there, plan a visit to the spa immediately following all that shopping, for a foot rub and some relaxation, and then maybe go have some cocktails and talk about the things that were a little too racy for the mall stores. Need a little more detail than that, and want to make sure each lady is happy on the excursion? Keep reading.

Who Wants/Needs To Go Where
Map it all out before you go. Make sure you know what type of shopping each lady needs to get done, this way each of you at least accomplishes one productive thing on your shopping outing. Depending on the needs, a trip to the mall could be the most convenient, offering up the most types of stores in the smallest area.
Any Special Dietary Needs
Before picking a place to dine, whether it’s lunch or dinner (depending on what time your shopping trip is planned for) make sure to find out what types of foods your group can and will eat. With so many food allergies and illnesses like Celiac Disease it’s important to consider each person before picking a place to dine. With severe allergies there may be a very limited option.

Spa Or Makeover?
Every woman knows that shopping can be stressful and it’s also a good workout. End your shopping fitness routine with a visit to the spa. You could get a foot massage, perfect for after all that walking, or just get a relaxing facial to help you calm down and cool off after all that shopping work.
If you’re still energized and not ready to relax, maybe it’s time for a makeover. Instead of going to a spa, you could all go to the salon and get a new hairdo or maybe try a new makeup look. It’s a perfect final for a women’s day.
However, your shopping excursion doesn’t need to end there. If you girls still have some gabbing to do you can always go out for some cocktails after your shopping trip and spa time is over. Again, consider allergies and gluten sensitivities when picking a place for libations. A little liquor can loosen you up and gives you a chance to finish any conversations that were interrupted by hair cuts and dressing rooms!
