Before you know it, the hills around Sun Valley will once again be alive with the sounds of music. The highly anticipated Sun Valley Summer Symphony season returns to the Sun Valley Pavilion (located adjacent to the Sun Valley Lodge) and the lawn beyond on July 24. For three wonderful summertime weeks, the finest musicians in the country will offer free concerts. It is one of the most highly anticipated cultural and social highlights of the year.
Guests and locals alike anticipate the Sun Valley Summer Symphony...
Whether you are visiting Sun Valley and are in search of a very special souvenir, or call this wonderful valley home, there are some special shopping opportunities for the remainder of the summer. If you are looking for a unique reminder of your time in Sun Valley for yourself, or are searching for a perfect gift, pop over to the Resort this week and next and prepare to be dazzled.
The shopping spectacular starts right now with two trunk shows this weekend. The first, a glassybaby Road Show also gives you the opportunity to do good while you stock up as the event benefits the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley. If you aren’t familiar with glassybaby, prepare to fall in love! These hand-blown glass votive candleholders are made in Seattle and are collected by many. I discovered them a few years ago and am slightly obsessed. Substantial, heavy, and beautiful whether just displayed or with a candle flickering within, glassybabys are also a perfect gift. Glassybaby has donated more than $3 million dollars to organizations dedicated to helping people, animals and the environment heal which makes you feel even better about indulging. The event takes place at the Sun Valley Signatures store in the Village today and tomorrow, from 12 to 5 p.m. Come by to browse, collect, and enjoy some refreshments.

Another very covetable designer also invites you to a special trunk show today and tomorrow. Christina Healy’s new jewelry designs will be available at the Lodge from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Christina, who calls Sun Valley home, is internationally renowned and her gorgeous work has been featured at Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstroms. However, it is now available exclusively at the Sun Valley Lodge Gift Shop. And today, from 2 to 5 p.m., her attention will be on you during a special personal styling session sure to pair the perfect piece with your look and lifestyle. Though gifted at what she does, Christina is so warm and personable. Time spent with her is like time spent with a new best girlfriend – a very talented new best girlfriend with an amazing eye for what will look good on you.
The exclusive designs of Christina Healy will be featured at the Lodge Gift Shop this weekend with a special appearance from the artist herself.
Next week, Sun Valley Signatures will host a Nancy Liston Trunk Show, featuring the artist’s beautiful Sun Valley-themed ceramics, paintings, and hand-dyes scarves. This is the perfect way to always have a little Sun Valley with you. On August 27 and 28, the whimsical work of the popular local artist will be displayed with a special visit from Nancy herself. She will give demonstrations and personalize her hand-painted ceramic platters and plates depicting some of Sun Valley’s most iconic locations. This is the perfect opportunity to bring home something that will forever remind you of this special place.
Nancy Liston’s whimsical depictions of some of Sun Valley’s most iconic sites make one (or more!) of her pieces the perfect souvenir.
The shopping spree continues through the rest of the summer with special Labor Day weekend sidewalk sales with savings too good to be believed at the fine stores in the Village. Be sure to carve out a little time during this busy weekend to browse, shop, and find exactly what you’ve been looking for, or something you didn’t even know you needed!
