Columbus Day is on Monday, Oct. 8 this year.
Columbus Day, a nationally recognized federal holiday, falls on Monday, Oct. 8 this year. While it is an opportunity for some to sleep in on a Monday, the holiday itself is also interesting, and a great time to celebrate and shop. Columbus Day remembers Italian explorer Christopher Columbus’ long journey across the Atlantic Ocean to the “New World." The voyage was victorious when land was first spotted on Oct. 12, 1492. Each year, the Italian American Cultural Society, based in Clinton Township, commemorates the holiday with a parade.

On a recent weekday morning, the polished and poised Marshall was adorned in a chic pink, black and floral ensemble that evoked a sunny field of posies amid sticks of strawberry and black licorice. “…
