Marquette, Michigan--The elegant Landmark Inn made a perfect setting Thursday to gather for Downtown Marquette's annual Ladies Night holiday shopping event.

A group of us Marquette Ladies met at The Landmark Inn's Northland Pub at 6:00 pm for some cosmos, a sampler plate, and a little warm- up cheer before hitting the Downtown Ladies Night streets to register for free prizes and to fill out our jewelry wish lists.

My favorite Downtown Marquette shops Thursday night were Wattsson and Wattsson Jewelers and Richardson Jewelers.  It felt extravagant to touch fabulous pieces of jewelry and to fill out wish lists to drop in the prize boxes. 

Anybody can dream!

After visiting most of the shops on both sides of Washington Street in the Downtown block, we returned back up Front Street to the Landmark Inn for dinner in the Northland Pub.  Cheesy quesadillas were the favorite all around.

A visit to The Lilac Room on the 6th floor was a hit with the friends.

Getting together at the Landmark Inn made for a cozy evening for everyone.  I stayed the night in The Lilac Room and enjoyed the sunrise this morning.

At 9:00 am, Steve, the Porter, guided me on a tour of the hotel.  Each unique room offers a magnificent setting and view.  My favorite was the Amelia Earhart Suite.
