It’s time for a pillow party! AroundMainLine.com is hosting its first Girls’ Night Out event on Thursday, July 9th from 6 to 9 p.m. in Haverford Station. And, it promises to be a pillow party unlike any other. AML and Haverford pillow boutique Fill-a-Pillow, owned and operated by QVC model Monica Walker Miraglilo, have partnered together for a fun, ladies event for the Main Line called, appropriately enough, Pillow Talk! “I absolutely adore Monica’s creative boutique Fill-a-Pillow! And when I was shopping around for an event venue, it seemed like a no-brainer. It is the most welcoming, lush retail space. We’ve had so many requests through our last nine months for this type of ladies’ cocktail party-so it is due time for a unique girls’ night. In addition, since we have partnered with NBC10, Pillow Talk! will be part of the 10! Show this week. Monica will bring all her creative designs on set (on Tuesday, July 7th) to chat up Pillow Talk! and inform the entire Delaware Valley about our cool, summer cocktail party. We are honored to be working with Channel 10 and feel this will be key to spreading the word about our fun AML event,” said Sarah Lockard, AroundMainLine.com ePublisher.
Walker’s Fill-a-Pillow was inspired by the success of the popular chain, Build-a-Bear. The shop was highlighted last fall in a feature on AML entitled: A Model Business: QVC’s Monica Walker Miraglilo. The boutique is, in essence, an adult version of the ‘Bear’ concept offering innovative, do-it-yourself designs and events including: children’s pillow parties, tooth fairy pillows, diary pillows, secret pillows, table napkins, table runners, monogramming, wine bags, window treatments, gift baskets, and more. Guests of the Pillow Talk! party will have the opportunity to browse the boutique and pick out a custom pillow which will be created during the event. “It’s a great party concept-the fact that girlfriends or moms and daughters can come to our space, which is welcoming and unique, browse around and be their own designers. There is really nothing else like this on the Main Line. When our first-time customers come in here, they get so much satisfaction looking at the selection of fabrics and trims. I’m so excited to meet new people, showcase Fill-a-Pillow and have a chic cocktail party with AroundMainLine.com,” said Walker.
