Pair Days

Downtown Lincoln's Spring Shopping Event

April 27th - May 2nd

Downtown Lincoln is pleased to announce its premier spring shopping event: Pair Days.  The six day sale event starts on April 27th and encourages you to "Pair Up" and save at several Downtown Lincoln shops.  When you start shopping during the event, simply mention Pair Days to the participating shop's cashier and tell them who you are with to receive your extra special discount.  

Bring your mom, sister, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or shopping partner in crime.  Any pair is welcome, because those who shop together, save together.  

 


Tell me the Sales!

Many shops are offering a 10% OFF Sale for individual and a 20% OFF Sale for pairs (with some exclusions and limited items applied).  There are many other types of discounts as well, with the common theme of saving more by shopping with your pair.

See below for each shop's sales details, locations and hours during Pair Days.  These sales are just for you, so remember to mention Pair Days to each participating store during checkout to receive your discounts.  

 


Why Shop in Pairs?

Shopping online just isn't the same experience as browsing the racks and aisles with your friends and family. Like wine to cheese, you need someone there to enjoy the other as truly intended.

When shopping, it’s important to have that one person that just gets you. They may be different from you in a lot of ways, but you can always agree with them on the most important thing, whether the dress is drab or fab. Your shopping partner in crime can be your aunt, neighbor, or best friend, but they are always honest and might not stop you from buying the second pair of fuzzy pig socks, but definitely the third.

It doesn't hurt that you are saving more by pairing for the event as well.  We hope you bring somebody that will add joy to your shopping experience in Downtown Lincoln, and in many instances, reveal something new or unique.  


A Pair of Gift Cards

In honor of Pair Days, a "pair" of Downtown Lincoln Gift Cards will be given away at every participating location.  As you shop, you or your partner may be among the lucky to happen upon that extra little suprise.  If you are one of the lucky ones, make sure to share your victory with us by posting a picture on social media using the hashtag #PairDays.

If sales, shopping with friends and secret gift cards aren't enough reasons to be a part of Pair Days, maybe a little competition will help.  Downtown Lincoln will be giving away prizes to any couple that dresses up as a famous pair during the week of the event.  So start planning with your potential "pair" and figure out who is the Bert to your Ernie, Kim to your Kanye, or Amy to your Tina >  

How to win:  

1. Coordinate with your partner and dress up as a famous or interesting "Pair" during the week of Pair Days.

2. Take a picture of both of you shopping at any of the participating merchants (You might need to ask somebody to take it for you or get a "Selfie Stick")

3. Post the picture on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and use the hashtag #PairDays.

What you win:

Prizes: Everybody who Pairs up and posts a picture will win a special Downtown Lincoln T-Shirt to remember their shopping experience.
