Thank you to the Mall at UTC Sarasota for sponsoring this post about Spring Shopping For Mother’s Day. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
If you are trying to decide what to give a special Mom in your life this Mother’s Day, then look no further than the Mall at UTC Sarasota!
I took a trip up to this shopping destination to use a Bath and Body Works gift card I received from from my family, and while shopping I found Spring related items and gift ideas. Plus, if you want to treat MOM to lunch or dinner, there are plenty of great dining destinations as well.
An example of delicious eats, was my first stop to check out YoSushi a Japanese Inspired eatery with a conveyor belt. To dine, I simply sat and waited for my favorite Asian dish to come sliding by.
This was a very cool dining experience, and for more Restaurant options visit Where To Eat at the Mall at UTC.
After lunch I began to stroll the Mall, and Gift Inspirations for Mother’s Day were all around. There were also plenty of sales as I looked into the store fronts.
In addition, I came across beautiful Flower Arrangements and Orchids setup in a kiosk in the center aisle.
I walked into Vera Bradley to see what items they had on display, and they were running a discount on luggage.
There were also new styles out for Spring and Summer including Flip Flops and beach wear. For other Mother’s Day inspiration and special offers, visit Shops at the Mall at UTC.
Smelling the great scents coming from Yankee Candle reminded me that I was on a mission for lotions, but I also wanted to find myself a new dress and shoes.
Since I have had success in the past, I made my way down to see what Macy’s had. Plus, it didn’t hurt that they were running a 25% off Friends and Family Sale.
On the second floor, I found a grouping of sundresses that I really liked by Maison Jules. I went for the light blue one and found it in a medium, I was so excited.
Of course now I really needed to locate a pair of shoes, so I was back out into the mall to see what was available.
Since I know that H&M has affordable styles, I thought I would head in there to see what sandals they had in stock.
Lucky for me, they had a pair of blue that matched my dress perfectly.
Of course I couldn’t leave the UTC without checking out Bath and Body Works, and while I was there I got to sample a NEW Scent called Tahiti Island Dream.
Let’s just say that it smelled so good and I took advantage of the Buy 2 Get One FREE offer.
Plus, I ended up picking up my Mother a Purchase with Purchase gift. No photos though, I have to keep it a surprise.
Are you finished shopping for Mother’s Day? If you are a Mom, what items would you appreciate as a Gift?
