This past Thursday I attended the Ibex Boston Grand Opening “Winter Warming” party. The party was a huge hit and a great time had by all. I first heard about Ibex from my brother and sister in law, who live in VT and absolutely love the brand for all of their various outdoor adventures, running, hiking, skiing, you name it! So when I saw the grand opening event on facebook I immediately RSVP’ed!
The new Ibex Boston store is located at 303 Newbury street, a great location for such a fun outdoor brand! I loved checking out the awesome clothes and catching up with old friends and making new ones. I bumped into Rob from @Bostonoutdoor and introduced him to Lizzy @Foodtorunfor. In addition I met the legendary @Bostontweet and the uber-outgoing Sarah from @Boloco. In addition I got to see my friend Sarah and meet her future mother in law!
Ibex gave party goers a 20% discount off of merchandise as well as a chance to win a weekend at the Stowe Mountain Resort and a $500 Ibex shopping spree. Of course I signed up immediately and I am still waiting with bated breathe to hear who won! As if that wasn’t enough, they had delicious VT beers from Longtrail and Magic Hat breweries, spiked apple cider, pizza from American Flatbread and some delicious sweet treats!
The only downside to this party? It was so fun that I ended up not being able to try on any of their great work out gear! @Bostonoutdoor recommended that I try the Shak hoody (pictured above), apparently it’s great for cold weather running and skiing! I’ve heard awesome things about their yoga and running tights as well, so I will surely be returning!
Thank you to the whole Ibex Boston team for putting on an awesome event!
