Girls’ nights out are necessary in life, but they’re a little too Cinderella-like. If we had our way, we’d want them to last all weekend. Thankfully, SHE Girls’ Weekend will fulfill this dream when they host an array of vendors and guests for three days. Fashion, design, and music will fill the days — with some special guests helping to pass the time.

Elise Testone kicks off the weekend at the Opening Day party with a performance at 6:30. Vern Yip, from TLC’s Trading Spaces, NBC’s Home Intervention, and countless shows on HGTV, will head up the design portion and provide tips on how to decorate your home affordably but with elegance and style. Other celebs hitting up the girls’ weekend? Terry Haas, known for her recurring role on HGTV’s Design to Sell presents a demonstration on the best style for selling your house, James Beard Award Winner Cynthia Graubart shares tips and tricks from her book Slow Cooking for Two, and Lisa Berger, from Stacy London’s company Style for Hire, will offer complimentary image and fashion consultations. For a complete schedule, visit the SHE Charleston website.

Get your tickets so you can shop, accessorize, decorate, and eat with your a convention center full of your closest friends. Friday night’s opening party is free to the public, and guests may buy a two-day pass for $12 or $8 per day. Tickets cost $4 for children ages six-12 and $5 for students and military with ID.
