Beautiful foliage, crisp air, fresh fashion – it’s safe to say we’ve never been more excited for for fall! From must-have styles and new stores, to exciting events and activities, join us this season to discover everything fall has to offer at West Acres. Here are 5 ways to celebrate the season with us…

1. Refresh for Fall

Fall fashion seems to be a favorite in our neck of the woods, and with so many trends to choose from this season you’re sure to find must-have pieces to add to your wardrobe. With events and activities filling up our calendar this season, it’s never been easier to pull together the perfect outfit. We can’t wait to fill your feed with cozy clothes, stylish shoes, and a weekly glimpse of the top items in stores.

There’s never been a more perfect time to feel refreshed and renewed than a change of seasons! We love to get pampered at any one of our fabulous salons and beauty retailers – whether it’s getting our nails and makeup done, or re-stocking our collection of scents and products.

2. Visit The Market

If there’s anything better than comfort food when the leaves start to turn and the air gives a chill, it’s the fresh produce that goes along with it! The Market at West Acres is a farmers market featuring local growers and makers, providing the best fresh foods that are the perfect addition to your favorite fall dishes.

I have the privilege of being on the amazing Marketing, PR and Fashion team as the Digital Marketing Manager at West Acres. When I am not managing our social and digital platforms and brainstorming content ideas, I am the woman behind (and sometimes in front of) the camera – creating content and working with the media to create segments to introduce the latest trends! When I’m not at the mall, you can find me watching “Friends,” eating ice cream by the carton, spending time with my family and friends, feeding my Pinterest addiction or crossing off destinations on my traveling bucket list.
