Step into Spring with Style

After a wonderful weekend of warmer temperatures, Asheville is more ready for spring than ever. Fortunately, there are some promising signs that it isn't far away, and Biltmore Park Town Square is already gearing up for the new season. As shoe salons, local boutiques, and national retailers stock up on the latest fashion trends, residents of and visitors to Western North Carolina are brushing off their cabin fever and reacquainting their winter-weary hearts with some of their favorite Asheville destinations.

This past weekend, Town Square patrons caught up on the latest blockbuster hits at Regal, watched the Olympics at Hickory Tavern, enjoyed great company at 131 MAIN Restaurant, and refreshed their winter wardrobes with spring looks from Moda and Constance Boutique. The warm weather brought out joggers, too, who took in the day from Town Square's tree-lined streets and the Reuter Family YMCA.

While winter may not have had its last word, Biltmore Park is ready to keep up the momentum from the weekend and step into spring with style. Even if the temperatures aren't quite where we want them to be, Town Square restaurants and retailers are at hand to offer creative ideas for shielding off the winter blues. First, try the Blue Ridge Harvest treatment at Sparrow Spa. The face and body treatment includes antioxidant-rich blueberries, which will help heal your winter skin and remind you of the upcoming season. Next, stop by REI and participate in one of their many free classes. Learn new skills for spring activities like maintaining your bike or reading a map and compass. Afterwards, you may even consider going by Cold Stone Creamery. While you may not want to dive into an ice cream cones in the outdoor elements, relaxing in their seating area while you enjoy your treat may be just the thing you need to remind you that warmer days are on their way.

Whaterver your choice may be, Biltmore Park is ready to help you prepare for another season and get the most out of the one that's winding down. From offices and residential space to bookstores and hair salons, you'll find it all in Town Square.
