Fashionable Deals for a Great Cause!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Dress for Success is my favorite organization to volunteer for, and when I can give time I do.  I made sure my work schedule allowed me to partake in Shop for Success!, a 4 day pop-up shop offering designer deals at low prices.  I volunteered for the VIP night (Wednesday, December 4th), which was such a fun experience!

I’ve never worked retail before, but I know running a store takes a lot of work.  I arrived ready to jump in and help wherever was needed.  The store looked amazing, which everything nicely organized and many things to look at and purchase.  There was a silent auction, raffle prizes, open bar, a DJ and a photo booth for attendees.  Once 5pm hit, there was a line at the door for anxious ladies ready to enter and shop the night away!

I assisted in the dressing room area, getting ladies in and out, running go backs to the floor and offering my style eye where needed.  They were all playing dress up and everyone looked beautiful in the outfits they chose!  It was busy at times and that kept me moving and grooving while the DJ was spinning the tunes.  I want to open my own boutique one day, so this was helpful for me to get an idea of what it would be like.

At closing, it turned out to be a fabulous night with a great turnout and the best part is that all proceeds go to Dress for Success.  I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my evening, supporting an organization close to my heart that gives back and helps women be prepared for a professional career in several ways.

And guess what?  Shop for Success is open for 2 more days! The hours for today are 10am – 8pm and Saturday 10am – 6pm.  There are some great Holiday buys and you should bring your girlfriends.  Thanks to everyone who made this event happen!
