April Program: Fashion Show – “Savvy, Sassy & Sophisticated”

Twenty-five “Savvy, Sassy & Sophisticated” models will be showing off their spring look, layered to accentuate their unique body types, and beautifully dressed from five local stores. These include Beautiful boutique and Mill Street Clothing Company in Grass Valley, Judi’s of Nevada City, Marilyn’s Fashionations in Auburn and Whim be beautiful! in Penn Valley.

There will be ten fabulous raffle prizes to win including five WOW “must-have” items, presented by each storeowner. There will also be five in-store fashion-consulting sessions followed by lunch at a local restaurant for you and a friend.

The Fashion Show Committee has worked for an entire year to make this fashion show one to remember so be sure to get your reservations in early. Members’ reservations are accepted with their checks for $32 now, and non-member guests may be accepted after April 1. This event is always a sellout, as we can only seat 204 people.
