St Peter’s Athletic Club in Dromiskin are hosting a 50 shades of spring fashion show in the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Thursday March 5th to raise funds for young athlete James Meenan, who will carry the Irish flag in the Special Olympics in Los Angeles this summer.
The event will also seek to raise funds for the club’s new track.
On the night there will be exhibitors from Ruby Nu in Park Street and Elmay and Bella Me Dress House in Clanbrassil Street.
Tickets, priced €10, are available from any of the competing shops or from The Gift and Art Gallery. Alternatively you can pay at the door on the night.
Clanbrassil Street is set for a welcome boost as a new styling boutique is set to open its doors on Friday May 2nd.
The person responsible for the new venture, which will be called Elmay Professional Styling Boutique, is Dundalk woman Laura (Hughes) Corry – the former manager of Sally West, which closed its doors recently.
Laura has over 12 years experience in the fashion industry and she comes from a strong family background steeped in fashion history from designers to manufacturers and wholesalers to retailers.
Laura has furthered her styling knowledge by receiving professional training from top celebrity stylist Nicky Hambleton Jones who is best known for presenting Channel 4’s hit show 10 Years Younger.
Elmay Professional Styling Boutique will combine both styling expertise with clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories to give each customer an individual look.
Elmay Boutique will cater for a wide variety of ladies from mid-20s to mid-70s and above, and with a selection of sizes from 8-24 there will surely be something to satisfy all women’s needs.
The shop will be located at 30 Clanbrassil Street – the former Madame Kay’s – and will have well-known brands from the four corners of the globe as well as celebrating the best of Irish fashion hosting labels such as Endora.ie, most recently seen on Ireland AM, as well as Avalon, Via Veneto, Roisin McCarthy knitwear and Aria – a company which featured in Elle magazine’s top 10 brands of last year.
Elmay Boutique will offer a special opening discount of up to 20% off for each customer from Friday 2nd to Saturday 10th May. For more updates visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ElmayProfessionalStylingBoutique
