This is the season of giving and Tommy Bahama is kicking things off with a charity event on November 11th. In partnership with the VFW Post 8466, American Legion Post 187 and Marine Corps League Detachment 1257, Tommy Bahama will donate 10% of their sales to the Fisher House at Ft. Bragg, Camp Lejeune, and Wounded Warrior Battalions at both locations.  Stop by during the hours of 12-5 pm and shop for a good cause.

About the Fisher House

For more than 25 years the Fisher House program has provided “a home away from home” for the families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers.  These homes are free, temporary lodging to military and veterans’ families, allowing them to be closer to their loved one during a medical crisis.  ( )

As a customer you benefit through savings with the Tommy Bahama FLIP SIDE event from November 1 to December 31. Every $175 you spend you will receive a $50 gift card to be used during the month of January. Your purchases on November 11th will not only benefit the Fisher house but yield you savings!

Here are a few tips to start your holiday shopping early:

Know who your buying gifts for. Make a list of all the people you plan to buy gifts for.  Break up your list by friends, family, coworkers, and more. Once you made a list, stick to it! Be sure to add special gifts for charities like the Fisher House. Donations this time of year are needed and appreciated!

Decide on what type of gift matches the person on your list.  Once your list is complete add the type of gift you’d like to purchase for each person.  Tommy Bahama has something for everyone! Besides clothing, accessories and shoes; shop for home décor, specialty gifts and even a gift card to one of their restaurant locations is perfect for the foodie in your life! (closest restaurant locations to NC are NC and NYC)

Start earlier than Black Friday. Many retailers, including Tommy Bahama are gearing up for before holiday savings! Take advantage of these deals now and avoid the holiday rush. Starting early will help with finding what you want in stock, taking the stress out of shopping. Remember to participate in the FLIP SIDE promotion and receive your $50 gift card!

Set a date to be done with your shopping. Setting a date to be complete with your shopping will help you stay on task and on budget.  Avoid the holiday rush, stay sane and happy with a clear shopping plan!

So, give a little, save a little with Tommy Bahama this holiday season! Plan to shop and save November 11th at Tommy Bahama at Crabtree Valley Mall. #CrabtreeCares
