Every Girl Gets a Dress

Yesterday was the first time we hosted a Prom Event at our Iowa City location.   I’m happy to announce that every girl who tried on a dress went home with a dress!  With a selection of over 200 dresses to choose from there was a whole lotta tryin’ on taking place! It was a blast!  I’ve included pictures here of some of the girls and the amazing dresses they went home with yesterday. 

Thanks to everyone that joined us yesterday, especially our sponsors for their awesome door prizes:  The Brown Bottle, Nedrebos in Iowa City, Cherry Blossom, Flash Portraits, Anna at Bellisimo, and Ann Qual with Mary Kay

If you missed it, you have another opportunity to get the dress of your dreams this Sunday, Feb. 13th at our Cedar Rapids West location, 3750 Williams Blvd SW.  Hope to see you there!

I bet you thought I was going to say FOOTBALL, huh?  Well, this Sunday, the Super Bowl can wait until AFTER the Stuff Etc Prom Event.  From 1pm to 3pm this Sunday, Feb. 6th, our Iowa City location is going all out to bring you a spectacular selection of brand new and slightly experienced formal dresses.  You won’t believe your eyes and you cetrtainly won’t believe the prices!  Like these brand new beauties pictured here!

A Dress With Previous Experience

ex·pe·ri·ence  noun \ik-ˈspir-ē-ən(t)s\

something personally encountered, undergone, or lived through; : direct observation of or participation in events as a basis of knowledge and skill               ~ Webster Dictionary

Sooooo….thanks to the definition provided by good ol Webster, one can deduce that Stuff Etc’s fabulous selection of formal dresses with “previous experience” is a good thing!  Prom is right around the corner, and it’s never too soon to start looking for a dress that will be the perfect fit and color, not to mention, be completely different from all the other dresses in the room.

A prom dress is a right of passage for a high school girl!  I saved up my prom experience and only attended my Senior Year.  I can remember every detail, stitch, and the way the vibrant purple satin felt on my body and how proud I was of its individuality – there wasn’t another one like it in the room… and I bought it at a small consignment shop in my home town for less than $100.  We at Stuff Etc appreciate the value placed upon selecting the garment that will accentuate your best features for such a memorable evening.  Therefore, we are collecting from all five locations and hand-picking some of the best dresses you’ll be able to find in this area (consignors that get their dresses from Chicago boutiques for example) for our Prom Event coming in February. Click here for more details. We will also have new dresses available that we selected straight out of a 2011 Prom Magazine (like the blue one you see here) for only $89.99!

Purchasing a dress with previous experience, according to Webster,  means you are gaining a dress with knowledge and skill.  And a fashion savvy, economically conscience  girl like you will also appreciate  gaining such a unique, skilled dress at an amazing price.  Again, setting you apart from all the other girls that maxed out their parents plastic or spent collective months of their barely there, after school paychecks.

Join us for our boutique Prom Event in IOWA CITY, Sunday Feb. 6th and in CEDAR RAPIDS, Sunday Feb. 13th from 1-3pm.  Click here for more details. Try-on & purchase dresses, jewelry and other accessories.  Bid to win one of the FIVE featured dresses in the LIVE auction.  Enter to win awesome door prizes from our sponsors like a free limo, up-do, floral orders, and restaurants just to name a few.  Don’t miss out on one or both of these unique opportunities to score the perfect dress for your perfect day (each event will have completely different dresses).
