Come Find Us! PINK TANGERINE / 11 WESTERN AVENUE / KENNEBUNKPORT, MAINE 04046 / T: 207 967-8308 / PTANGERINE.COM (coming soon!!)
We have a lot to be thankful for here at the Pink Tangerine in Kennebunkport. The Holidays are a very special time because it means that “Christmas Prelude” is upon us. This is also a special time for Pink Tangerine as we are about to complete our third year and many changes are in the works for the year to come!
Christmas Prelude is a week-long celebration of the Holidays that begins the first Friday in December. This celebration kicks off Friday evening with the lighting of the Christmas tree in dock square and includes Santa, arriving from the North Pole by lobster boat, (of course!) to orchestrate the proceedings. So, if you’re out at your local mall the first weekend in December and Santa is conspicuously absent, well, you’ll know where he is!
Kennebunkport’s Prelude has been voted the 2nd best holiday celebration in the country and hotels are always full to capacity each year reminding us of the summer crowds that make up our busiest time of the year. We’re not sure who was voted #1 but frankly, we think there needs to be a recount.
Prelude is a time to rejoice and to share the holiday spirit with our friends and family. The holiday season also marks the end of the tourist season for us in Kennebunkport as tourist’s thoughts turn from the sun and sand of our area, to images of snow and slopes in the mountain region.
Kennebunkport is a traditional New England Resort community steeped in history and a haven for both boaters and beach lovers alike. We also have our share of Lilly Lovers, who in the past, had always enjoyed finding their favorite “resort chic” Lilly at our sister store, “Green Tangerine.” It quickly became evident, however, that a second store featuring only Lilly was needed, leading to the opening of Pink Tangerine. Pink Tangerine is approximately 1,800 of space on two floors with panoramic views of the water and Kennebunkport.
We have a number of changes planned for our building which we hope will be completed by next summer and our new website should be operational in the coming weeks so we can keep in touch with our Lilly fans as well.
Happy Holidays & be sure to add Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude celebration on your list of Must-Dos! (and of course, a stop at Pink Tangerine!)
