This free event is sponsored by StriVectin.

"We're thrilled to be participating in National Mom's Nite Out with Simon Malls and look forward to rewarding moms with free StriVectin samples, a giveaway and a special gift with purchase just for attendees," said Jill Scalamandre, Chief Marketing Officer for StriVectin.

Fifteen million moms are expected to take part in this national event. Moms across the United States will unite in celebrating motherhood with each other via local and national events as well as cyber celebrations. Organized by Maria Bailey, CEO of BSM Media, author and Mom Talk Radio host, National Mom’s Nite Out unites social media groups, companies, local playgroups, mom bloggers and networks in giving moms a well-deserved night off. Bailey organized the first National Mom’s Nite Out after watching moms take care of everyone else on Mother’s Day, but never themselves.

SouthPark moms in need of some fashion advice can attend a Style Recipes session led by Charlotte’s resident style-expert, Missus Smarty Pants. Many women have no idea what it takes to create an amazing wardrobe. Impulse purchase after impulse purchase they still have nothing to wear, yet closets are packed full of clothes! Sound familiar? Wardrobe planning is a lot like meal planning. Bring together the correct ingredients in the proper order and a stylish outfit is a no brainer! Wardrobe success is about having flexible "go-to" pieces that create a variety of outfits – and Missus Smarty Pants will show you how!
“We created National Mom’s Nite Out because so many of today’s mothers spend Mother’s Day focused on catering to the needs of others” said Maria Bailey, National Mom’s Nite Out organizer and mother of four. “We decided that moms deserve one night off from cooking, cleaning and responsibility and need time to celebrate motherhood with each other.” Simon Property Group is hosting National Mom’s Nite Out at 115 of its malls across the country. All activities are free and open to moms of all ages.
