Our First Moms’ Night Out at Penelope T!

Our first Moms’ Night Out at Penelope T Boutique in Jacksonville Beach was amazing! Every mom was greeted at the front door with raffle tickets and a fabulous Local Loyalties swag bag filled with tons of goodies. We had over 10 raffle packages to give away and all the moms got to choose which prizes they wanted to put their raffle tickets in.

Not Your Typical MNO

Eat, drink… and SHOP! Aside from the wine and signature cocktail provided by Penelope T, and the amazing food provided by Zeta, Moms were given the VIP treatment with makeup artist Lia Croke of Sephora and Paulina Perez, and hair stylists from Sutra Salon giving gorgeous dry styles. Sole spa was also on hand giving moms a quick rejuvenating back rub. And of course guests couldn’t ignore the fact that they were surrounded by amazing fashion. Moms were able to model the latest styles and even received a special MNO discount by Penelope T! Also, a huge thank you to our fabulous photographer of the night who captured all of the fun, Emily E. Martin Photography. A few of the pictures are included in this post, but to view the entire album please visit Emily’s post.

MNO Success!

Vicky and I were more than thrilled that our night out was a big success. Thank you to all our JMB readers for attending and to all our sponsors for making it a night to remember.

Be on the lookout for our next event coming soon! We hope to see you there!

Born in Jacksonville and raised in New Orleans and Houston, Megan attended college in Knoxville, then worked in Nashville. From her nomadic lifestyle grew a love for the beach, as well as a fondness for Cajun food and jazz, Texas BBQ, Tennessee football, and everything Music City. She is a work-from-home mompreneur with a passion for business, fashion, fitness, community, and all things mom. Having fallen in love with her parents’ hot plumber Mike in 2007, she married him two years later in her parents’ backyard. After their spunky curly-haired charmer Kingsley was born in February 2010, Megan decided not to return to her job. While spending time as a stay-at-home mom, however, she realized that Jacksonville was lacking some important resources for moms–so in August 2012, she asked her friend Vicky to join her in starting Jacksonville Moms Blog, now Jacksonville Mom. Megan loves learning more about her city; connecting with other moms, as well as connecting moms with one another; and discovering new local businesses. As the blog has grown, so has her family: in May 2014, she and Mike welcomed a spirited baby boy named Britton. When she’s not working on Jacksonville Mom, you can find Megan sweating it out with other moms, shooting skeet with Mike, or running around on the beach with her energetic duo!
