FARMINGTON — Some downtown businesses are now decked out with 34 bright green cedar-arborvitae trees.

The Farmington Downtown Association organized the purchase from Robin’s Flower Pot to kick off Ladies Day Out planned for Nov. 23, said Laurie Danforth of Homestead Kitchen, Bar and Bakery.

“It’s a day of pampering,” she said.

Almost all of the downtown stores, including those on Front Street, will be participating with specials and discounts, Danforth said.

Registration opens at 9:30 a.m. at The Homestead. Participants can pick up a pamphlet of discounts and specials with a free shopping bag. These will be available all day or until they are gone, she said.
The Homestead is going to have a wine tasting at 4 p.m. and live music at lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The trees, purchased by individual businesses, will be decorated in pink and gold for Ladies Day Out, Gloria McGraw of County Seat Realty said. Afterward, the trees will be decorated for the holidays and remain until the new year.

The trees will then be returned to Robin’s Flower Pot to be cared for over the winter. They will return in warmer weather for the businesses to use again, Danforth said.

Along with Danforth and McGraw, those helping with the tree arrival were Sue Jones of the Farmington Post Office, Martha Bond of The Calico Patch, Ron Gelinas and Jeannine LeVigne of Mainestone Jewelry, Corey Ellis of Mooseville, Allen Danforth of The Homestead and Richard McGraw of County Seat Realty.
