Girl Getaways Are Good for the Soul

Does the dreary weather, constant school work, and just the stress of life ever get you feeling down? Maybe what you need is a girls’ getaway. We have plenty of ideas to help rejuvenate you and get you feeling happy and healthy again.



The Alluvian Hotel and Spa in Greenwood, Mississippi is the perfect place to escape for the weekend. Located a little over an hour outside of Oxford in the heart of the Mississippi Delta, this hotel is inspired by the colors and textures of the Delta earth, and features amenities such as nightly turndown service, oversized marble bathrooms, plush bed and bath linens, and different art collections by local Mississippi artists. It includes luxurious features such as daily southern buffet breakfasts, a hotel business center, fitness center, a library, transportation to local attractions, room service, happy hour and more. The Alluvian Spa is a 7,000-square foot luxury spa that offers a full menu of treatments including face and body care, massage therapy, therapeutic baths, hand and foot care, and cosmetic and hair services.

Memphis, Tennessee is another fun city to go and explore with your girlfriends! They have everything from restaurants to bars, museums, plays and musicals, to spas and even riverboat rides around the city.

If staying local is more your style, then Board & Brush in Oxford makes for a fun and creative night. They offer private workshops, birthday parties, bachelorette parties, corporate events and more. They provide you with instructions, materials, and design for you to distress, sand, paint, stain and customize your piece of art. Beer and wine is also for sale, so you can have a drink and relax while making art and memories!

Oxford also offers many different spa treatments and locations, but one of our favorites is La Rousse Salon and Spa. They offer many services from hair and color, blowout bar, nails, wax, and different spa treatments. After you and your girls get pampered, head to the Square for some retail therapy. There are lots of options including boutiques, bookstores, and gift shops. After you have shopped ‘till you dropped, unwind at one of the two Malco Theatre locations for some popcorn and a movie.

Whatever your reason is, there is always something to do with your girlfriends in and out of town!
