Sweet and savory found at Slifer Designs

What goes better with Prosecco, hot chocolate and tasty bites than free money? We’d venture to say nothing! When you’re done enjoying spring’s fresh powder, stop by Slifer Designs for a sampling of gourmet bites – it’s an après fit for a ski queen – and start earning a free gift card. Slifer Designs is excited to welcome guests to this event on Saturday, March 19 from 4 to 6.


“We have so many new products, we can’t wait to share them with our customers. We have branched out and are loving our new foodie section – and our foodie customers are delighted too,” said Lisa Mikels, the store manager. “The tasting is a fun way to kick-off one of our most popular promotions: the Annual Spring Gift Card Promotion!”

Just like Slifer Designs finds only the best products for home and hostess, the culinary offerings are unique and perfect for an après ski party or Sunday brunch – or to bring to the hostess who already has everything.

The team will set up seven sampling stations around the store, allowing guests to mingle, taste and find their favorite. Just what can the discerning palate expect? Sumptuous chocolates from Nova Craft Chocolate; Popped with Altitude popcorn, handcrafted from a secret recipe right in Vail; Primo Specialty Foods’ Preserves, a decadently rich jam; Simon Pearces’ sought-after vinaigrette; marshmallows from Three Tarts that you won’t want to share with the kids or put on s’mores; Three Tarts’ biscotti; olives crafted from a special recipe just for Slifer Designs;  and for those little dinner party mishaps – Chateau Wine Spill Remover. The yumminess will be paired with champagne and hot chocolate for the kid in all of us.


“We all have our favorites,” Lisa said with a laugh recently. “We love finding new must-haves – and introducing the gourmet food items has been especially fun (and tasty).”

The Slifer Designs’ gift card promotion is well known and well loved: Spend $500, get a $75 gift card; spend $1000, get a $200 gift card; spend $2000, get a $500 gift card. The best part of this promotion? Besides the nibbles and the free money? Shoppers can use their gift card the same day they earn it. The hard part? Deciding just what to spend it on.


Come hungry and plan on staying a while. The deliciousness, the sweet, the savory are the perfect way to end a day on the slopes. Earning extra cash is just a bonus.

  • The gift card promotion runs from March 19 through April 10, but gift card balances never expire.
