I want to take a moment and thank everyone for coming out and supporting Glitter and Lace during our grand opening and HOCO 18 season!!!!! I couldn't do it without your support and encouragement. It was so wonderful to work with friends and meet so many new friends at the new Chesterfield prom store. It has been extremely rewarding for me. I love helping all of you find that perfect dress, I love the way your face lights up when you have found "the one". It is a very intimate experience and I don't take that lightly.
Homecoming season was a lot of fun. I met a lot of amazing girls and their moms. My first HOCO season and I went with a large variety of styles to help determine if there even was a particular "style" that girls liked. Well, there isn't , it is as varied as the girls themselves. I loved the individuality of the girls. I loved that we carried sizes 0-30. It was incredibly rewarding to style all shapes and sizes. This season prepared me well for Prom and next HOCO.
Along with HOCO , I've been able to help women find the perfect gown for military balls, galas, birthday celebrations, weddings and mothers of the bride/groom. I have customers that come as far as PA and all areas of Va. Now the next big event will be PROM 2019. I am super excited. We have marketing like crazy on Instagram, Facebook, google ads. It will take a lot of continued effort to get our name out. Your comments , reviews and shares are so so appreciated. The best advertisement is a happy customer.
I attended World of Prom this past August. It was inspiring, exhausting and at times quit overwhelming...so many gorgeous dresses...I wanted them all !!! I was able to watch the runway shows, meet the designers and personally examine each gown. This was invaluable in helping me make the final decisions. I will say, I have put a tremendous amount of thought into the process of choosing the prom collections for Glitter and Lace. From the very beginning it was most important to offer designer that were not represented in Richmond. Not always possible, but I definitely added some and some of the best such as Terani Couture, and Mac Duggal , Johnathan Kayne , Andrea and Leo and Shail K as well as a few more that you won't see in Richmond, VA. At prom Market in Atlanta, these were my favorites and I was overjoyed that they were not in Richmond and Terani isn't even in Virginia. But, I have other favorites as well and they all bring something unique . Each one has something special to offer , great quality and value. We will carry couture lines such as MacDuggal, Terani, Johnathan Kayne and Jovani, Andrea and Leo. We will also carry Shail K, Alyce Paris, Colors, Zoey Grey, Dave and Johnny, Angela and Allison, Ritzee Prom, Envious, Primavera. We will continue to grow our list but for now, I just wanted THE BEST!!. And I'm always searching for new and different. Check our website and read about each designer. Our prices for prom will range low 200 to 700.
When choosing the gowns , I envisioned each girl that would be wearing it. Making sure the cut was right for her body type, ensuring that it was well designed with fabric that she would like. My experience in design from way back has come in handy. I realized at that moment that each girl is like my own daughter. It is what I did when my girls were going to prom, I care that much about how great you will look and feel.
Next up will be the prom photoshoot to promote Glitter and Lace. We have been building our brand ambassador program and added some more lovely #soglitterandlacegirls. I can't wait, it is going to be a lot of fun. Stayed tuned , photoshoot this month. In early January, a prom grand opening will be scheduled for you to view all of the new 2019 prom gowns. Shipments are coming in weekly right now, so come on over. Most gowns are one of a kind. I can reorder a few but I want to keep things fresh and exciting so if you fall in love with it, lay it away or purchase now. Most designers only cut a few of each dress so it may be difficult to reorder a gown later and can take up to 12 weeks to get in. Keep that in mind if you would like to special order from our designers . We also offer square payments so you can spread your payment out and take your dress home with you that day, we have all that information available in our store.
