Jennifer Schreiber doesn't hide that she loves to shop.
"I have packages arriving on a daily basis for all the online shopping I do," she said.
But the co-owner of The Green Bean Roasting Co. was waiting on a different shipment Wednesday afternoon.
Expected to arrive at the coffee shop at 100 S. Beaver St. were ingredients for specialty drinks to be sold during the city's first-ever Boutique Week.
The event, which highlights and promotes York shops, will be held Tuesday through Saturday.
During each of those days, the Green Bean will sell The Fashionista and Cocoa Chanel to accommodate
Created by Schreiber and co-owner Vanessa DeLisio, the Fashionista is a sweet blend of strawberry, vanilla and white chocolate, with espresso and milk, topped with pink whipped cream and edible pearls.
And Cocoa Chanel is a coffee drink with chocolate whipped cream and edible pearls.
"What's fancier than a specialty beverage?" Schreiber said. "These are pretty awesome."
She and DeLisio both love shopping and are "extra-thrilled" by the opportunity to do "something fun that people will really like" during Boutique Week, Schreiber said.
"To go with the theme, we wanted to keep our drinks stylish and chic," she said.
Lots to offer: Whether its coffee or clothes, Boutique Week promises to have something for everyone, according to Hilary Arthur, chairwoman of the event.
Arthur will also have a pop-up shop outside Park Street Pantry at 24 N. Beaver St., selling the couture items normally found on her website www.arthuranddaughters.com.
Events will be held during day and evening hours to reach the most potential customers, she said.
Some stores that are normally open only during market hours will extend their business days "to make sure people who work have access to things," Arthur said.
Highlights of the week include a Cocktails and Curves party from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Flair Fashions, 102 N. George St. Local blogger Melissa Stiles will discuss plus-size fashion and new fall lines offered at Flair.
Additionally, from 5 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Arbonne cosmetics will host a makeup lesson, in which guests will learn to create a smoky-eye look, at Sweet Melissa's Dream, 51 N. Beaver St..
Throughout the week, Park Street Pantry will display fall and holiday tablescapes, designed by Lancaster-based Susquehanna Style magazine.
Fashion show, too: The new event also includes a fashion show at 7:30 p.m. Friday inside Central Market, 34 W. Philadelphia St. Admission is $5.
That evening, the city's market house will be full of babies wearing Growing Up Green's colorful, cloth diapers, tutus and headbands as they're ushered through what is normally the seating area of the food hub.
Adults will also be showcasing the store's baby carriers, walking through while wearing their children close to their hearts, said Heather Klinefelter, owner of Growing Up Green, 266 W. Market St.
"It will give me a chance to show off my cuter customers," she said.
