Banyan Tree Tremont & a Thursday Getaway

Thursdays are the “so close yet so far” kind of days… you’re past the halfway point but you still have a whole other day to get through. Thankfully, this past Thursday night was spent out on the town in Tremont and Cleveland with one of my best friends!

The lovely Maria from The Style Letters invited me & a friend to her Summer Soiree style event at Banyan Tree Tremont!ย I invited my friend Katie, and she planned a girl’s night getaway for us for the evening. She works for the Hilton hotel company, so she booked a room at the Doubletree downtown. The only thing that could’ve been better was the weather! (Typical Ohio…)

We loved browsing around the store, checking out all of the cute items, and just the eclectic atmosphere of the store. I couldn’t believe when the store manager told me it’s been there for 12 years! I had never heard of it until this year and I definitely want to go back.

Loved this little owl Ohio shirt! So cute.

There was also no shortage of handbags & clothing.

I also had no idea that Banyan Tree Tremont sold home decor/house-wareย items!

Thanks for such a fun event, Maria!

After the event, we decided to grab an appetizer & drink in Tremont. Maria recommended Lolita (which I’ve heard is awesome) but Tremont was hoppin’ (and Lolita had quite a wait) so we opted for Barrio instead. I am so excited that I got to check this place off my CLE bucket list (that I still need to post about). It was such a laid back, fun atmosphere & the food and drinks were delicious!

Our hotel room! That bed was SO comfy. And it was extra nice getting free breakfast after getting up at 6:30 to beat the traffic (which was overkill because I got home SUPER early).

Such a wonderful girls night out, even if I did have to call it a night early (hey – I’m a working girl now). Thanks again to Maria for the invite, and thanks to Katie for planning the rest of our evening ๐Ÿ™‚
