International Women’s Day 2019 is officially here and whether you’re out taking part in the Women’s Day March or stuck behind your desk, we’ve got you covered with our roundup of 7 amazing Women’s Day events in Toronto (and promos!) that you don’t want to miss! Bonus: while most of these are taking place today, there are a few that are happening over the course of the weekend and beyond so you won’t miss out!
Free Macarons at NADÈGE
Kick off International Women’s Day 2019 by satisfying your sweet tooth courtesy of NADÈGE Patisserie. You may remember learning more about the incredible Owner & Chef, Nadège Nourian, in our recent #FounderFiles feature, and we’re thrilled to share that she’s helping everyone celebrate this special day by offering FREE macarons at all NADÈGE Patisserie locations all day long (while supplies last).
Empowering Chocolates from Mejuri
Passing by Queen Subway Station today? As of 8am you can find the Mejuri team on site handing out free chocolates with a female empowerment message written inside the wrapper to help get your day started off strong! If you miss them today, look out for the launch of Mejuri’s new “Today” collection on March 11th that encourages women to treat themselves whenever they please.
THE CLINICA Launch Event
THE CLINICA is celebrating the launch of their first flagship location in a BIG way, and YOU are invited! From 6:30pm to 9:30pm on Women’s Day (aka TONIGHT!) be sure to stop by Lena Restaurant to join the celebration and receive a $250 gift card (seriously, everyone gets one!) to #FindYourMiracle through their personalized Miracle Cocktail treatment.
Support Girls Inc. with MICHI
Don’t have time to get out and celebrate today? No sweat! Our favourite local fitness brand, MICHI, will be donating 10% of all sales from MICHINY.com to Girls Inc. on International Women’s Day. Don’t miss your chance to support the development of young girls through this woman-founded and women-led Canadian brand that’s made right here in Toronto.
‘Give with Grace’ via Ever New
If you’re in the mood to shop and give back, considering purchasing a pair of Ever New‘s best-selling Grace Pants today. For every pair purchased on March 8th online and in-store, Ever New will donate a pair of their Grace Pants to the global not-for-profit, Dress For Success.
Knix Warehouse Sale
Although this isn’t exactly a “Women’s Day Event”, we think that the first-ever warehouse sale from Toronto-based online women’s intimates company, Knix, is a big enough deal that it totally deserves to be included. Besides, giving women the chance to buy their mega popular Leakproof Underwear for the seriously reduced price of 3 for $27 (instead of $25-30 each) is definitely what we consider women supporting women! You can find the Knix warehouse sale at 225 Richmond Street West today from 10am-9pm and Saturday March 9th from 9am to 7pm.
Women In Business Networking Night
We’re thrilled to announce that BOLO and Edit Seven have teamed up to host our first ever Women in Business networking night! Although it’s not taking place on International Women’s Day today, we’d love for you to mark your calendars and grab a ticket to attend on the evening of Thursday, March 14th. Instead of a panel, we’ve decided to put together a “Speed Networking” event to give you the chance to ask questions, take part in discussions and get to meet some amazing female entrepreneurs one-on-one. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome our Guest Experts of the night including Amber Joliat of MISFITSTUDIO, Catriona Smart of Coco & Cowe and Halo PR, Beverley Cheng of Born To Sweat, Pattie Lovett-Reid, Ivy Chen of Bebe Fete, Darielle Teitelbaum of Awe Legal and Alena Luciani of Training2XL. If you’ve been wondering about everything from getting organised to how or when to incorporate and grow your business, this is the night for you! Click HERE to get your ticket now.
Happy International Women’s Day!
