Giveaway: Southern Women's Show tickets!

Posted March 2, 2012


It's the first Friday of the month, which means it is time for a giveaway! How would you like to attend the Southern Women's Show with a friend this year...for FREE?! Up for grabs are four sets of 2 tickets!

To enter to win one of the four sets of tickets: Leave a comment below telling us what you enjoy most about the Southern Women's Show. If you have never been, let us know what you hope to see at the show. 

I will randomly pick the 4 winners on Tuesday, March 6 at 12 noon. I'll post the winning usernames soon after noon. Good luck!

I'll be teaching a coupon class at the show once on Friday and once on Saturday. On Sunday, I'll be on the cooking stage with cookbook author, Lisa Shively, whipping up a frugal dish and chatting about meal planning in our game show/cooking class called "Let's Bake a Deal!". With a title like that, you know there are some fun prizes involved! I will also have a booth at the show all weekend. Look for the WRAL booth and you'll find the Smart Shopper/Go Ask Mom booth right next to it.

This year's big display is Royal Dresses of Diana, The People's Princess.

As always, the show has fashion shows, shopping, lots of food, free samples, coupons, cooking shows, celebrity guests and so much more!

    My mother and I try to attend every year. Sometimes we bring other friends with us also. We go to see what's new, what's in, and try new products. We always find something that we "can't live without", and have our makeup done to keep us up to date.

    Every year I look forward to the Southern Women's Show
    Where I usually take my girlfriends
    Rather than my beau.

    We shop for accessories, fashions, and home decor too.
    We get our makeup done, watch cooking shows
    And even meet a celebrity or two.

    Wine tastings, snacks and sweets galore
    Freebies, contests and coupons...
    What more could a girl ask for?!

    The Southern Women's Show is wonderful, I've gone several times. Its great for girlfriend bonding, better than mall shopping because there is so much entertainment and education along with fabulous finds. Fun.

    have not been before but heard it is a great time of fellowship and shopping. looking forward to going this year and taking a friend!

  • Dirt Road Daisy Mar 5, 2012

    I would love to go. Went several years ago with my sisters and my mom and had a blast. The best part was trying on wigs!!!
    We were having so much fun, we even drew a crowd!
    It was the most fun we've had together. Good luck to whoever wins. Enjoy yourself!

    This would be my first year going to the show and what a nice treat if it is free. I can't wait to see the People's Princess Gowns of Lady Di, the fashion shows and cooking shows, do some shopping, eat lots of food, take advantage of the free samples, get some coupons, and see celebrity guests. I may have to go at least two days to get it all done.

    My daughter and I have never been to this event and we are really looking forward to the activities listed. I excited about the presentations and free samples. She so excited about the shopping and presentations. Can't wait.

    What's not to like - free samples, great food, and shopping all in one place! My daughter and I would love to go. She has never attended and I'm sure she would enjoy it.
