A Cheap Chic Charitable Cause Worth Reporting?

“Shop For Success” Pop-Up Returns To Palm Beach Outlets

 To Benefit Dress For Success Palm Beaches

Boca Raton, FL — Fashion lovers who value unparalleled bargains will find up to 70% off designer and name brand labels when the 4th annual “Shop for Success” pop-up opens its doors Thursday, October 4 – Sunday, October 7, at the Palm Beach Outlets. Monies raised by the flash retail experience benefit Dress for Success Palm Beaches, the nonprofit that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing not only head-to-toe workplace wardrobing, but also courses and coaching to build self-esteem and job readiness.

“Last year’s pop-up raised nearly $25,000, and we’re determined to top that,” said Nicole Parcheta, “Shop for Success” volunteer chairperson who has led the event the past three years. “The caliber of fashions that shoppers will find include Armani, Tory Burch, Escada, Betsey Johnson, plus popular brands from Ann Taylor, Banana Republic and J. Crew. Some items are gently worn, some still with original price tags, and all were generously donated to Dress for Success.”

In addition to clothing in sizes petite to plus, the array of accessories available includes shoes, handbags, jewelry, sunglasses and scarves. The pricing is by category. So, for example, dresses are $12, suits $15, skirts and shoes $10. The deals to be had at a “Couture Corner” within the shop are equally as tempting, with items like Ferragamo shoes, St. John skirts or pants, and Chanel sweaters priced as low as $35.

A ticketed VIP Preview Reception on Thursday, October 4, 6 -9 p.m., officially kicks off the pop-up and is the perfect opportunity for diehard fashionistas to enjoy an advance shopping night with Champagne, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment. Tickets for this launch occasion are limited; $30 for the first 30 Early Birds who register, $35 for all others and available online only at www.dressforsuccesspalmbeaches.org. General public shopping hours on the following three days are Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. until

9 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

Mary Hart, executive director of Dress for Success Palm Beaches, explained that “Shop for Success” is hosted by the organization’s newly evolved outgrowth of volunteer supporters, Y.E.S.! (Young Executives for Success). “This group of under 40 professionals has stepped up to add muscle and influence for all of our initiatives,” she said. “They represent the next generation of mentors, morale-boosters and donors who are helping us serve the growing number of clients in our community.”

Hart also acknowledged that Palm Beach Outlets provides an empty storefront for the pop-up, an in-kind contribution the property has pledged since “Shop for Success” originated.
