Unlike gulls’ nights out, girls’ nights out are refreshingly free of frenzied squawking and don’t typically end in a tug-of-war over a freshly caught earthworm. Spread your wings with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get four tickets to the Just for Her Expo on June 3 and 4 at the Overland Park Convention Center (a $25 value online in advance, a $40 value at the door). Children 12 and under are admitted for free.
The third annual Just For Her Expo, hosted by hercityguide.com and Herlife magazine, gathers more than 250 vendor booths for shopping, luxury-product exploration, and celebrity chatting. Bring three friends, Charlie’s Angels, or sisters of Fate to the convention floor, featuring booths from vendors such as Trendz, Massage Envy, and Home Decorators Collection. The Kansas City Pork Association will host a cooking demonstration on Friday at 6:30 p.m., followed by a showcase of charming bachelors and a live auction to benefit Go Red for Women. Adopt a Transylvanian accent when meeting Peter Facinelli, the sensuous Dr. Cullen from the Twilight movie series, who’ll talk with fans and sign autographs on Saturday at 1 p.m., accompanying the Twilight-themed MIdwest Women's Care Health & Wellness Expo. Stick around for a Zona Rosa–sponsored fashion show that offers up-to-the-minute glamour guidance and an easy intervention for couture-challenged friends accustomed to wearing parachute pants and wraparound parachutes. Though not included in the value of this Groupon, attendees can stop into the Pamper Her Lounge for mini spa treatments such as a chair massage or eyebrow wax ($6 each).
Just for Her Event
The Overland Park Convention Center kicks off summer with the Just for Her Event, where can women shop, expand their knowledge on topics such as health and wellness, and peruse more than 200 exhibitors. Booths showcase the latest in summer fashions from local boutiques, as well as luxurious spa services at area oases. Some lucky attendees will win daily raffle prizes and shopping sprees, which are much nicer rewards than the typical shopper’s prize: a free paper bag.
