Students - What You Need to Know
Please read the information below carefully to get all your questions answered about the 2019 boutiques (March 30 & April 6).
As a boutique shopper, we will do our best to find you the perfect prom ensemble! We have dresses from size 0-26 available; however, a more limited selection in plus-size dresses. Again, we’ll do our best to find you the perfect dress and accessories for your prom! You will also have the opportunity to find shoes, jewelry, make-up, and accessories based on the availability of donations to match your perfect dress!
What to expect at the Boutique:
You do NOT need to sign up ahead of time–just come to the boutique and get in line!
Just bring yourself and a huge smile–we are excited to see you, and so are our volunteers!
You will be “paired” with a personal shopper volunteer that will help you find a prom dress.
All items are donated from all over the city, and we hope that you are able to find a dress, shoes, jewelry, make-up and an accessory for prom night!
