Teen Board News

Thank you thank you to our Teen Board girls! Having you all come in and model the prom dresses really helps our customers know what the dress looks like on a body instead of a hanger. It was so funny on Saturday, our Teen Board Model, Ann Marie must have out on 30 dresses in 2 hours! every time she came out a customer wanted to try on the dress she was wearing! We also had Halle, Kayla, Jessie, and Morgan model for us this past weekend.

Also, the Teen Board is doing a great job bringing in customers with their referral cards! Ki-Anna and Sara both had friends come in and buy Prom Dresses!

We are looking forward to another great week and busty weekend.

In fact we have a Teen Board Prom Party Tonight!

Busy Busy Busy....Tony Bowls Trink Show All Month Long!

Prom Season has officially kicked into high gear. With this past weekend being the first pretty weekend we have had in a while, weather wise, the store was absolutely packed Saturday and Sunday. There is no better adrenaline rush than a store full of prom girls! The energy is just amazing as everyone is excited to search for that perfect prom dress. We are proud to have a Tony Bowls Trunk show going on the whole month of February. We have tons and tons, literally over 100 Tony Bowls Prom Dresses, in stock right now. Tony is the HOT designer of the season and this is a great time to come see the biggest selection of Tony Bowls Prom Dresses hanging with the biggest selection of prom dresses period in the Southeast.
We hope to see you soon!

Shop to Support Haiti Success!

What a great weekend! We had our Shop for Haiti where we are donating $5 for every dress we sold and we are proud to say that we are donating $340.00 back to the American Red Cross for the Haiti Recovery Program.

I really enjoyed working this weekend. Our staff did an awesome job of giving great customer service and I was very proud of them. When girls are shopping for prom dresses, it is a very personal experience for them and we want to make that experience memorable. I have explained to my staff, that to me, it is very, very important that we have something that no one else has and that happens to be the very best customer service. To me, that is what makes a company special and creates loyalty with customers. When I go shopping, if I don’t get fantastic customer service I simply turn around and leave. I think this may be a dying art because sadly there are very few places I can go and get this precious commodity (Great Customer Service). I feel that each person should be treated as if they were your best friend. Care about this person and help them find the perfect prom or pageant dress. If your best friend came in the store wouldn’t you pull dresses for them, find earrings and shoes and a purse. Get on the stage with them and help them put these things on. Show them your personal favorites and all the latest gowns that just arrived? That is what a customer wants, to feel special and educated on the latest fashions. And I am proud to say that I think all our sales staff accomplished making our customers feel special.

I also want to thank our new Teen Board Members for coming out and modeling our prom dresses for our customers. That really helped the customers to see what different styles look like on the body. I would say overall this was a great weekend with an enthusiastic group of young ladies learning to be great salespeople and to be compassionate about their customers.

Oh La La! New Prom Styles IN STOCK!

Oh la la! We just got in more of the 95007p from Terani. This prom dress is soooo pretty. As soon as we get it in, it flies out the door. The soft and pretty styles for prom dresses seem to be the very “in” thing this year. Strapless bodices always do well because they can fit so many different body shapes. It’s actually the number one style of dress that sells nationwide. If you’re super big busted it can camouflage this for you and if you’re flat busted it can actually give you a bust line. Terani is also great about having dresses in stock; so, I really enjoy working with them. If I need something they send it out the very same day if possible. They also have a style 1318p that is amazing. We just got a load of them in as well. These are probably their 2 best selling dresses in their entire prom line. Be sure to check them out.

Shop to Support Haiti

This weekend we are having our Shop for Haiti day. We will give back $5 for every prom dress we sell. We are hoping to sell 100 dresses. This will hopefully be a donation of 500.00 for such a great cause. The money will be donated to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund. It is our responsibility to help one another in such a crisis. Together we can all make a difference. Also, for every prom dress we sell we will be giving out a Free Cinderella’s Closet T-Shirt as our way of saying Thank you! If you know of a great cause that we can be a part of and make a difference, please be sure to let us know about it. We have just started a new Teen Board for Cinderella’s Closet and as a representative of this new board we have also implemented a program to better serve our community. We will have some of our new board members present Saturday to help collect donations for the Haiti fund. If you would like to meet any of our proud Teen Board Representatives they will be there Saturday.

Wow! Over the weekend we experienced 2 different scenarios of customers wanting to buy the same prom dress. This can be a very tricky situation because you want all your customers to have a wonderful time shopping for that special dream dress. I always have this nightmare of Feline’s basement where the 2 girls are fighting over a dress; then I wake up in a sweat. Prom dress shopping is a very personal affair so it can get nasty, and I mean it can get nasty very quickly. My advice to shoppers would be to make sure to hold on to your special dress and don’t let it go until you are entirely sure that you don’t want the dress. Otherwise, your mind may be made up for you and the dress may be gone and that is never a good situation. So, the lesson to this story is BUY YOUR DRESS when you find one you love.
